You Are Here: Exposing the Vital Link Between What We Do and What That Does to Our Planet

The relationship between the globe's crises and our everyday actions is becoming less and less clear despite the increased media and political attention on the environment. The flick of a light switch is linked to the polar ice caps melting. "The Sunday" newspaper is fundamentally connected to the disappearing rainforests. The seemingly insignificant things that we do have the power to alter the landscape in the battle to save the earth. There are living narratives of climate change that reveal the consequences of our everyday actions. In far away places such as China, India, South America, Africa, our choices are felt.And it's to those encampments of ruin that Kostigen insists we must visit to comprehend. Kostigen takes us face to face with the ramifications of environmental impropriety. Starting with Jerusalem, where we can see our history crumbling before our eyes, Kostigen then takes us to what well may be our future in Linfen, China, the most polluted city on the planet. From a waste area twice the size of Texas in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, to the world's biggest landfill site in Staten Island, New York to the rainforests of the Amazon, "You Are Here" describes the environmental crisis in a different way, one that we can almost feel, see, and touch. We will be presented with opportunities for change and we will be empowered to take action on the spot, wherever we are, and see its universal effect. By combining groundbreaking research, and page-turning frontline reporting, Kostigen presents the earth from a new environmental perspective and in so doing sheds light about our place in it.
