Best of 2012: National Geographic Photographer Paul Nicklen (VIDEO)

It is time for the best of 2012 to resurface and this year our most impactful and riveting interview by far was with National Geographic photographer, Paul Nicklen, who discusses our impact on the planet and the small things we can do to make a difference.

Interviewed from his home in British Columbia on a short break from his time in the Polar regions, many of Paul's most famous shots are included in this interview, showing us how he uses his camera to reveal the nature of a world melting away under human-induced global warming.

Beautiful. Powerful. Important. Enjoy.
