"A commentary on the perilous state of nature's delicate balance. Many species are in decline, ecosystems are on the verge of collapse, and climate scientists are emphasizing that time is running out to avoid environmental consequences that will make zones inhabited by millions practically unlivable. This problem may harm some people more than others, but it is a universal problem since we all impact the problems and solutions. Unfortunately, the more conscientious habits of citizens are only part of the solution. Without pressure and regulation, corporations will continue to put profits before the health of the planet. The news clipping included in the piece is a portion of an article revealing that Exxon-Mobile has known based on their own internal scientific research, for over 40 years that burning fossil fuels is warming the planet, yet they hid the research and publicly denied the impact of fossil fuels on climate change." - Shepard Fairey
