This week on Earthbeat host Mike Tidwell tackles denial.
George Marshall of the Climate Outreach and Information Network in the United Kingdom studies global warming denial — and he’s found that when it comes to action — sometimes the less you know, the better. Marshall’s blog is www.climatedenial.org.
How to cut through Global Warming Denial? A few artists are trying to reach people, not through charts and graphs, but through photos and paintings.
Edward Morris and Susannah Sayler of The Canary Project put landscape photographs of areas affected by Global Warming on buses around Denver in collaboration with the city’s Museum of Contemporary Art.
Painter Joy Garnett is currently taking part in the exhibit “Prevailing Climate” in New York City and is preparing for her solo show, sponsored by the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, DC. The show opens in January 2007.
In a commentary host Mike Tidwell talks about denial and issues a call to action for a groundswell — a movement — of people concerned about global warming; calling for people to lead where our politicians fear to tread.
