The holiday season is a great time to remind yourself that thanks to human pollution of the atmosphere, Santa Claus’ home in the North Pole is rapidly melting away. One way to do this is to check out a new coffee table book about that exact subject from author/photographer Sebastian Copeland, entitled Arctica: The Vanishing North.
As its name suggests, Arctica: The Vanishing North documents the otherworldly beauty of the arctic in photographic form before it disappears forever. Also included in the volume is an introduction by a more famous name – Virgin’s Sir Richard Branson, a billionaire with a higher-than-average interest in the environment.
You can get your copy of Arctica: The Vanishing North for the deluxe price of $87.25 at its listing on Amazon here. And if you’re leaving cookies out for Santa this year, consider including an “I’m sorry for destroying the planet” note instead – it’s very literally the least you can do.
