The world on the street is: Climate Chaos Ahead

in

In the early hours of Wednesday morning the message "Climate Chaos Ahead" appeared in central Auckland.

The message "Climate Chaos Ahead" appeared in several locations in the Auckland downtown. Two of them were found in front of the entrances to the Sky Tower Conference Centre hosting the National Power Conference. It seems the conference centre didn't agree with the message but they couldn't dissolve such a strong warning. Others appeared in front of Flight Centres and sidewalks around central Auckland.

Rock on! this is a great bit of subvertising and I'm sure quite a few of the delegates would have passed over them this week... and also 100's of other NZers that might start to think more about climate change and the urgency involved.
Its all about building that momentum and getting the message out into public spaces. Nice Nice.

Time to get Re-educated

you silly boys and girls - while you guys are bending over for the environment the economic climate is receding - what good is nature without human resource and capital to harness it to our ends. i'm sure you guys would not like to live under the stars on a rainy night - climate 'chaos' is the least of humanity's problems

Re: The world on the street is: Climate Chaos Ahead

Nice work :) Now wheres my scissors??

Re: The world on the street is: Climate Chaos Ahead

the economic crisis is in part caused by the ecological one that is happening due tot he depletion of finite resources, pollution and overall mismanagement of nature, resources and our lives and economies.

climate chaos is no backburner, ask those in heatwaves, droughts, forest fires or on coastal lands and countries (Tuvalu, Bangladesh etc).

Re: The world on the street is: Climate Chaos Ahead

Of course an economy based on the burning of finite resources will recede one day, its called deplection, and retrenchment. Good ol boom bust cycles eh?

You pretence stinks almost as much as that of the early English middle-classes
