“Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.” -Aldous Huxley
31 year old conceptual artist Hannah Rothstein came out with these dystopian futuristic prints of our National Parks just before Earth Day in March and made them available free for download and print in hopes that people might put them on a sticker or walk with them during the March for Science and the People’s Climate March.
They are bleak but attention grabbing. This is a blurb from her website about the prints:
“National Parks 2050 is a call to action. Drawing upon the classic National Parks posters, this series shows how climate change will affect seven of America’s most beloved landscapes. In doing so, it makes climate change feel close to home and hard to ignore.
We have the ability to outsmart the issues highlighted in National Parks 2050, but we need to act now. From Franklin to Fuller, America has been made its greatest by embracing ingenuity and innovation. If we dive headfirst into inventing for a brighter future, we can prevent National Parks 2050 from becoming a reality.
I hope the series inspires everyone, from every day citizens to policy makers, to acknowledge the issues ahead, admit that climate stewardship is a non-partisan issue, and work together to find the solutions I know we’re capable of creating.”
Please share this around with anyone that loves our National Parks system and wants to ensure their preservation for generations to come.
