Happy Earth Day everyone! But then again, every day should be Earth Day since we live here every day! This "Bliss at the Cliff’s Edge” image is my modern take on the 19th-century romantic landscape featuring sunbathers enjoying the dramatic oceanside setting. The Industrial Revolution and the discovery of oil as a fuel source created convenient advances that left more leisure time for the public to enjoy. At the time, these advances seemed to have no downside but we now have an overwhelming scientific consensus that the pollution and carbon emissions from oil and gas are dramatically harming and heating the planet and contributing to more extreme weather. We are at the cliff’s edge when it comes to preventing the most catastrophic damage to the planet. The technology exists, the only thing missing is the will of the people to put the future of the planet and the lives of our kids before convenience and profit.
