About the Next Series the Artist Will be Presenting:
There is undisputable evidence that we are having anthropogenic climate changes not only seen from extreme weather patterns and climate caused events around the world such as rising sea levels, record temperatures and retreating glaciers, but top scientists in an overwhelming majority have confirmed, backed by academic and scientific studies that most of the warming is attributable to human activities.
The danger to the planet is extreme, and yet climate deniers are individuals who work to undermine public trust in climate science. They reject the overwhelming irrefutable scientific data and align with industry and politicians to serve their ideological and/or economic interests without regards for the planet or for the people affected by climate change. Deniers constantly and systematically undermine, at every level, any effort for control or prevention of climate change.
One of the most vulnerable places in the nation being affected by climate change is Florida. We are at the top of the list. In the counties that make up coastal South Florida, salt water is already pushing through our porous bedrock affecting water supplies, tropical storms clog rivers and canals making it harder to drain into the ocean. Millions of people in our area at danger of the grave effects of sea level rise now and in the very near future.
This body of work is directed to call attention to this predicament. When the waters start to permeate they will not discriminate between climate change deniers or the rest of us. It will be too late for them too.
