�We�re toast if we don�t get on a very different path,�
� James Hansen, NASA Scientist/Expert on global warming1

My posters are responses to this statement from an article published June 2008 in USA Today. I was alarmed to read the �Earth�s atmosphere can only stay this loaded with man-made carbon dioxide for a couple more decades without changes such as mass extinction, ecosystem collapse and dramatic sea level rises.�2 A couple more decades? I am only 36, and my children are in grade school! What can I do? What can you do?

A very different path requires a very different mindset, and Americans must overcome their ignorance and complacency about our climate in crisis. We must get educated, get empowered and get active toward demanding and upholding drastic changes of our toxic behaviors. Switching out our light bulbs is great, but how many of us are really working toward blocking coal fired power plants � the chief cause of man-made greenhouse gases?3 Get involved now at www.wecansolveit.org.

In these posters, as a reference to our being �toast,� I used black vinyl lettering that I exposed to extreme heat which resulted in melted and distressed typography.
