Paddy Scott – ‘Humanity’s Effect on our Planet’s “Permanent” Landscapes’
What effect is humanity having on our planet’s most “permanent” landscapes? Paddy relates his experiences as an award-winning landscape photographer to a Tedx audience at the Royal Geographic Society. Through his work he has been witness to the dichotomy of landscapes appearing untouchable and yet truly changing at an alarming pace. We pay the effects little mind because to us, they appear quite slow, when truly in geological terms they are happening in the blink of an eye. Paddy explores the landscapes of Antarctica, Patagonia, and the Himalayas through the photographer’s lens and talks about the challenges these landscapes are facing in light of growing human pressures and global warming. As our population continues to grow, the decisions we make balancing the natural world with living standards are only going to become more difficult.
