Story Behind This Mural

Artist Statement

Due to human impact, we are emitting CO2 into our atmosphere in massive amounts that are warming the planet and altering the chemistry of the ocean at an dangerous rate. Our careless consumption habits are destroying habitat and driving species, such as the iconic polar bear, into extinction.

Today, carbon dioxide (CO2) levels in our atmosphere are the highest they've been in 15 million years. It's the cumulative impact of an ever-expanding population - 7 billion people and rising - and an ever-increasing thirst for energy, requiring 24/7 electricity, factories, cars, trucks, planes and more.
