Beacon of Light...Pollution

Matt Christensen

This eelgrass bed(time) photo juxtaposes the concept of a beacon of light being hope, when in fact it’s light and energy pollution from a greenhouse contributing to climate change. The eelgrass bed, a symbol of coastal biodiversity and productivity, shown in the foreground is countering climate change and sequestering carbon. Research of this iconic coastal habitat will inform natural climate solutions; working with nature and biodiversity to combat global warming.
