I was flying in a helicopter to the North of the Arctic Circle — one of the last true pristine wilderness areas in the world — to see its beauty and the results of global warming in the remote places of Alaska. Through photographs and art Shestakov wants to draw attention to global warming, which is so clearly visible on all the glaciers of Alaska, which are melting faster every year. Warming in the Arctic, Antarctic and Alaska continues to accelerate faster than the global average, scientists reported this year.
