The daunting changes that global warming will bring us is a horror to think of. The consequences of global warming have been well documented by Hollywood in various movies over the years including The Day After Tomorrow, An Inconvenient Truth, etc. Drastic weather changes, extinction of animals, natural disasters among others come straight to mind. In fact the Union of Concerned Scientists notes that more than half of all industrial emissions of carbon dioxide since the dawn of the Industrial Revolution will have been released since 1988 — the year it became widely known that these emissions are warming the climate.

With aims to raise awareness about climate change, she implores,” My hope is that these drawings bring awareness, and invite viewers to share urgency in a hopeful and meaningful way. Art can facilitate a deeper understanding of any crisis, helping us find meaning and optimism in shifting landscapes.”
