Burn Baby Burn, inspired by the aesthetics of "live fast – die young" rock 'n' roll, is a critique of some harmful habits we are addicted to. Not just the harmful effects of burning fossil fuels, but also the dangerous psychology of denial and nihilism that underpins the apathy toward the planet's future (and ours)! Whether it is the defiant greed of the fossil fuel corporations or the indifference of a public comfortable with status quo habits around fossil fuels, further delay in transitioning to renewable energy sources will be catastrophic for the planet and all of its species. I know that none of us like the idea of disrupting a comfortable habit. Still, the relative ease of a gradual transition off of fossil fuels is vastly superior to the stresses, and disastrous consequences, of waiting until many of the impacts are past their tipping point. If we keep waiting to act until tomorrow, the phrase "like there's no tomorrow" might drop the "like" and become more literal. This print is on cotton rag sustainable paper, by the way. A portion of the proceeds from this print will benefit Greenpeace to assist their efforts to protect the environment and ween America off fossil fuels. Thanks for caring.
