ExxonMobil Refinery, Baytown TX

Shorebirds on the beach at Lynchburg Landing. Sepia-tone image.


I see a climate-activist NGO (Climate Defense Project) has used this photograph on their homepage banner. Grateful they selected my photo but also mildly amused ... because my intent in taking this photo was to illustrate how nature and industry can co-exist. We see shorebirds juxtaposed with America's second-largest oil refinery, in the morning light.

Climate has changed over timescales of centuries, is changing, and will always change - due to natural causes with an additional component of human influence.
