Artist Note: The third painting in a series focused on creating awareness of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, this artwork specifically addresses UNSDG #13: Climate Action. This piece is a confrontation between opposing views on climate change, whereby climate truth battles the outcome of climate denial.
According to the UN, “1.5°C is the threshold for dangerous global warming. Beyond this we risk severely destabilizing social and economic structures across the world. 2019 was the second warmest year on record and the end of the warmest decade (2010- 2019) ever recorded. Carbon dioxide (CO2) levels and other greenhouse gases in the atmosphere rose to new records in 2019.”Dedication: To the bravery of firefighters and all those fighting to stem the consequences of climate change.
