Summer is almost over in the US… It is leaving behind historic hottest days, wildfires destroying nature and homes, with the resulting smoke polluting the air and filling the lungs of humans and most other animals, massive floods, warming ocean waters… and this is only what we experience on this side of the world… I am just back from Argentina where I experienced several unusually hot days while it was Winter there… Climate Crisis is now a Climate Emergency… We must continue our mission to push for large and small, individual, and community-driven, solutions to lower carbon dioxide emissions and pollution… We must remain focused and determined…
I was honored to have my work “Finding the Courage to Change”, featured in this blog, become part of The Climate Art Collection, a Berlin (Germany) based association that publishes and curates climate and nature related artworks, and aims to make climate change and its associated impacts accessible and approachable to a global audience, as well as to preserve the beauty of our planet.
