The hourglass symbolizes the urgency of the climate change crisis, and how we should take action to protect what we have left instead of idling around.
Here's What I'm Thinking...
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?
There are many 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. Choosing to reduce, reuse, and recycle can help lower the energy cost of making new products like plastic water bottles.
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.
I am a UC Berkeley art major with a love for environmental science. I have done numerous environmental drawings in the past, and have hosted contests on Deviantart to raise awareness about animal cruelty and the BP Gulf of Mexico oil spill.
I believe art is meant to inspire us to work toward a better tomorrow.
