Climate changing

Jenny Ross, a reader, just won a World Press Photo Award (nature, first place, singles) for this:

Explanation: "A male polar bear climbs precariously on the face of a cliff above the ocean at Ostrova Oranskie in northern Novaya Zemlya, attempting to feed on seabird eggs. This bear was marooned on land and unable to feed on seals--its normal prey--because sea ice had melted throughout the region and receded far to the north as a result of climate change."
