Work Statement

The scientific community has presented overwhelming evidence that shows how our species has a direct impact on climate change. Yet the corporate machine has an obligation to cast doubt on the theory of global warming and continue to operate in a way that maximizes their short term profit while ignoring long term consequences. "Warm Blooded" is proposed as a reflection of ourselves and what we are doing to effectively change our climate and put our ultimate survival in question. While our actions are not limited to oil consumption, it stands as one of the most obvious detriments to the environment and to our ability to keep peace in oil-rich regions of the world.
