Climate scientist Anton Seimon applies research on global climate change to environmental conservation for the Wildlife Conservation Society. With work in the high Andes of Peru and the Albertine Rift area in Africa, he monitors climate change adaptation and changes in biodiversity patterns with deglaciation. Formerly a tornado and severe storm researcher, Anton Seimon is an avid storm chaser and will be sharing images and stories from the 2010 storm season.
