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. www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news…

Global warming is undeniably here. 2000-present date was the warmest decade on record worldwide www.epa.gov/climatechange/indi…. 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 billingsgazette.com/news/local… 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.

It has come to my attention that my work closely resembles this one pepey.deviantart.com/art/globa… 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.

Dear Yuumei,

I continue to be a great admirer of your work, and I would like to make a request.  I belong to a Unitarian Universalist Church, and we are planning a service devoted to Climate Justice and Global Warming Activism on September 6.  I was speaking with other members of the congregation who are planning the service, and they were looking for some kind of hourglass-themed artwork for the program / order of service.  I immediately thought of this piece and of your beautiful style.  May we use your artwork for this event please?  I would absolutely credit you and try to meet whatever conditions you made.  Thanks for considering!

I've seen this several times and felt lead to comment today, as we've set yet another record high in global temperatures for the month of June. Broke the record last year, and we've broke it again this year. My friends and even family have mocked me for years about these issues. I'm sure many others have felt the same way, but don't lose hope. The evidence is becoming more and more popular and we will make a difference. Slow progression is still progression.

This month has been record breaking high in heat for my state in every city, by up to 30 DEGREES OVER NORMAL. If that isn't raising some brows, I don't know what will.

you don't even have to read the caption ( although it is very touching and well written ) the art speaks for itself, urging you to do the right thing.
