On 2017 and against the will of many Americans and citizens from all the world, President Trump, a climate change denialist, decided to back up from the Paris climate change agreement aimed for the future benefit of humanity and led by the U.N. Climate change is a fact supported by an international scientific consensus of 97%, being the N.A.S.A one of the many organizations supporting the evidence. My struggle for the past years has been to gather irrefutable evidence that proves climate change and the real victims of climate change;our children.

Javier Sánchez-Monge Escardó is a Spanish photojournalist and philosopher born in 1965 in Madrid who has travelled and lived throughout different countries in an effort to document both humanitarian and environmental causes, specially dedicating himself in the past two years to the issue of climate change and to the man-made era of the anthropocene, among other issues of humanitarian nature, such as the Rohingya refugees. His works have been published on El País, La Vanguardia, El Confidencial, El Día, El Diario de Navarra, Periodistas en Español and through the Spanish agency Agencia EFE.
