Countdown by yuumei Countdown by yuumei

While many of us enjoy the luxury of watching TV on our couch with a cold can of soda or beer, the ice caps are melting at an alarming rate. Polar bears that need the ice to hunt and survive are drowning or starving; sometimes forced to search through dumpsters to survive.…

Global warming is undeniably here. 2000-present date was the warmest decade on record worldwide…. This is not part of the natural climate change but a human induced and an abnormally accelerated increase in temperature. Waiting for the countdown until all the ice caps and glacier have melted and water level has risen is not an option.

Many of us think that helping to prevent global warming is just about driving a hybrid car, or getting solar panels, which most people can't afford, so why bother?

While fossil fuel burning cars are a huge source of green house gasses, many other things also add up to create the problem. The manufacturing of anything takes up energy, which is usually created by burning fossil fuel like gas and coal. Relying on oil also lets big oil companies like BP and ExxonMobile get away with oil spills time and time again (with the most recent large spill in Yellowstone national park…) With that in mind, I'm not saying we should give up everything we own and live in the wild, but any amount of reduce, reuse, and recycle will lessen the amount of new products that needs manufacturing. And that's something we can all do.

Taking public transportation, carpooling, or riding a bike are a cost efficient and healthy way to save energy and money. Even eating less meat (especially cows and pigs), can greatly help because it takes more energy to raise a cow than some crops of the same nutritional value. Cows are also a huge source of methane, which is another type of greenhouse gases that's responsible for global warming.

There are many other small things that we can all do help the environment like turning off the lights when we're not in the room, or not using the AC or heater if we could just take off or put on a jacket instead.

Change is not waiting for the scientists and government to come up with the solution, change starts with the little things we can do everyday.

For more simple ways to help:
what we can do at home
Plant a billion trees
what the heck are we doing to arctic ice?

It has come to my attention that my work closely resembles this one… which was made 2 years before mine. I have never seen this until after I posted my drawing, and people started telling me about the similarities between the two. I did not copy the idea and the similarities are purely coincidental. Congrats to pepey who came up with it first, but please do not assume that I plagiarized.

Sometimes it feels I'm the only one aware of this, and always trying to take action. My family calls me an extremist.


But your artwork is create and vibrant, if not getting the point across. I applaud you for using your talents to send out serious messages. 10/10. How come nobody has put this as DD?

Wait... but if you're planning thats she dies in a matter of minuets... its really a matter of weeks. See, before all the water goes from the top to the bottom, the iceberg will clog up the whole, wich on the bottom leaves a little space to breath.

This is so beautiful! I wish more people can see this and think twice on what they're doing to the world TwT ive been watching stuff like 2012 or The Day after Tomorrow, and I feel they made those movies for a reason. Once again this is an amazing drawing! I hope you make more of this in the future! =)
