One picture:1000 words

This picture is of the worst drought in 50 years in the Gansu province of China. It's from the The Canary Project a New York-based arts organization that builds public understanding of human-induced climate change and energizes commitment to solutions. Their key strategies:
- Visualize global warming in compelling ways that leverage data and communicate a sense of urgency.
- Integrate the tools of art with those of science, education, mass communication and other disciplines
that enhance our ability to engage diverse audiences.
- Investigate questions lying at the root of our current ecological crisis and provoke reflection on those questions.
- Cultivate media attention to further inform a broad public and to create excitement around the issue.
Distribute information on concrete actions people can take to cut carbon emissions.
