    Across British Columbia, 36 million acres of pine forests are dead and dying. The killer is a small beetle the size of a rice kernel. Indigenous to the forests of North America, the mountain pine beetle’s population was kept in check by cold winters. But global warming has allowed the beetles to thrive. The number and intensity of forest fires fueled by dead pine beetle killed trees has increased dramatically over the years. | Canada, 2009 | Nina Berman / NOOR

  • Water Crisis in Sao Paulo

    Climate change has increased the likelihood of extreme weather events, like droughts. This year Sao Paulo suffered one of the greatest water crisis in years.

Sao Paulo's water company Sabesp decided to ration the water, leaving 60 percent of the residents with restricted supplies and some faraway slums without water. | Sao Paulo, Brazil - August 2015 | Sebastian Liste / NOOR
