Blog Action Day - Climate Change

Today is apparently "Blog Action Day". I received this email from Tom, one of the member of the art group I belong to called "Everyday Matters".

Dear all,

Today is Blog Action Day, an annual event that unites the world's bloggers in posting about the same issue on the same day on their own blogs with the aim of sparking discussion around an issue of global importance. Blog Action Day 2009 – focusing on climate change – will be the largest-ever social change event on the web.

I am going to try to make a picture today about some aspect of climate change and add it to my blog. If you do the same, the idea is to then add a link to http://www.blogacti onday.org


So... here is my page on the climate change in my part of the world, Calgary, Alberta from 2002 - Today in October 2009.

It's not looking too good for bright sunny weather in Calgary like it was in 2002.

I know it is a VERY rough drawing. Just my contribution to the cause.
Happy Creating everyone!

Thanks for participating and spreading the word about BAD.

For anyone doubting climate change please take a look at my post for Blog Action Day. It's a good place to send your skeptical friends and colleagues — at least as a starting point for whetting their intellectual appetite to learn more (or, as a quick answer to blog comments).

Thanks for helping to raise awareness! This is the gloomiest October! We might all have to buy those special lamps to combat downward mood spirals.

Lovely sketches. It is amazing how the seasons change! Summer is lasting much longer this year!
