Colorado-based photographer-adventurer James Balog, of the Extreme Ice Survey, is working on a new series of time-lapse images of the ice and glaciers on Mount Everest. Slate obtained exclusive use of some of the earliest images from the project, including a video of the Khumbu Icefall, one of the most dramatic areas of glacial change over the past 50 years. The movement of glaciers is subtle to the human eye. But with time-lapse photography, Balog can compress nine months into 10 seconds and make glacial change patently visible.

Climate change needs a leader. It has no one.
Well, not exactly. That is, after all, a simplistic answer to the question of who stands out among the many climate professionals and experts to guide the critical processes and decisions needed to address global climate change.
There are lots of climate leaders. But is there a leader?
Plenty of disparate leadership roles exist. But, they’re not unified. Each leader has staked out a territory and, for one reason or another, has stayed there. Does this movement need a single, overall leader to guide the sweeping changes needed?

Here's what the judges had to say about my journalism:
"Very worthy topic -- how do educators teach the science on climate change given the cultural pressures to "balance" scientific knowledge with opinions to the contrary. Any educator who ignores these issues does so at her peril. Well done."
"Lisa Palmer's series is important journalism. She sheds light on self-censorship in the nation's schools, institutionalized weakness, and a major disservice not only to students, but to our nation in that we are unwilling to convey to the next generation what we know about an urgent planetary survival problem."
