I’m amazed by our society’s constant disregard for the environment. We are in a war that is directly related to the amount of oil we import. We are also battling to save our environment. Yet we behave as if nothing is wrong, as if no sacrifices need to be made. I looked at old posters from WWII, when the government communicated that sacrifices were required for the common good in order to defeat the enemy. I based my piece on an old war poster but I added vintage cars and people from the 1960’s. I changed the text to “climate change” and included several solutions or suggestions to combat needless travel.
Since I created this piece I find that I rarely drive unless I have to, ride my bike to do errands whenever possible, and spend a lot of time at home.
