The Black Car Project!

Black Car Project

Global warming is real and caused by humans. This is the message that the scientific community has gotten behind and called “very likely” a scientific term for greater than 90% odds. But what does this mean? If you look into climate models that offer the most hopeful change estimates for the future you find grim results.

What the scientist aren’t portraying very well with their careful vocabulary are human terms that resonate with people. The death of the coral reefs, 20-30% of the species of this planet going extinct, billions of people without water, are consequences that are unthinkable and yet leave people unaffected when merely read. These facts must be reinterpreted by artists and spiritual leaders and portrayed to people with the necessary depth.

The black car project is a personal moral reaction to climate change. The Isuzu Rodeo now encased in cement was given up with the promise of not owning a vehicle again until they are sustainable, if that ever happens.
