Magnum Photos is a photographic co-operative of great diversity and distinction owned by its photographer-members. They recently produced a beautiful and disturbing photo essay about climate change, titled "One Planet, One Chance."
Maybe there'll be another essay about climate change further down this page. But right now my subject isn't one buzz phrase. My subject now is more comprehensively ALL the obvious real and really important stuff being cunningly or stupidly covered up, by embedded media, political leaders, teachers, sloganeering pseudo progressives, and even language-challenged scientists (consciously or unconsciously for the sake of business), very much through (among other blind strategies) language abuse.

These studies suggest that a reframing of climate change would be extremely beneficial to the cause. Another study in 2010 tested people’s reaction to an essay about climate change framed as a public health issue. The study used the six segments—global warming’s six Americas—and found clear evidence that the alarmed and concerned segments responded positively to the essay, mixed evidence that the cautious and disengaged responded positively, and no evidence that the doubtful responded positively. All segments shared the belief that good health is a great blessing. Reframing climate change does not suggest the new framework will immediately engage all members of society. However, a human health framework localizes the issue. It takes it from the abstract and helps people make connections to the issues they already know. This new framework allows people to connect climate change with “already familiar problems such as asthma, allergies, and infectious disease experiences in their communities, while shifting the visualization of the issue away from remote arctic regions, and distant peoples and animals.” Essentially, public health brings climate change out from the wild, and into the home.
