October Squares | Day Twenty

This month Becky (the Queen of Squares) has challenged us to find lines. In Squares naturally. That is the only proper ‘rule’. I have been dipping into the archives for this one, as well as finding local lines.

In partnership with the Natural History Museum, the Cool Globes San Diego exhibit was displayed in and around Balboa Park, the San Diego Port, Seaport Village and the Embarcadero Marina Park from October 2008-March 2009.  Various artists created globes about Climate Change.

Artist: Peter Mars “Mr Polar Bear Goes to Washington”

Combining found objects with images from popular media, Mars painted his globe to tell the poignant story of the creatures most affected by global warming: the polar bears. The patriotic globe shows a concerned father polar bear visiting the U.S. Capitol to try and convince senators and representatives to help him save the rapidly receding polar ice.

Artist: Nina Weiss ‘Tall Grass’

“Converting traditional lawn into prairie is an attractive landscaping solution that significantly reduces household energy consumption; there is no need to mow, irrigate, or apply petroleum-based fertilisers. As leaves release oxygen into the air, dense root systems of prairie capture carbon, a phenomenon known as “carbon sequestration” that mitigates global warming…

Doesn’t that make you want to stop mowing and start growing?”

“Give me Five”

In partnership with the Natural History Museum, the Cool Globes San Diego exhibit was displayed in and around Balboa Park, the San Diego Port, Seaport Village and the Embarcadero Marina Park from October 2008-March 2009.  Various artists created globes about Climate Change. This one by Blue Man Group is  about stopping global warming and asking each of us to do five things for the environment. Ten years on and we are still talking about it with maybe a little more urgency.

My pledge:

      1. recycle more
      2. use the car less
      3. reduce air travel
      4. buy local produce
      5. conserve water

What will your pledge be?
