Crowdsourced 'Climate Victory' Campaign Works to Decarbonize Our World and Defeat Climate Change
A new collaboration was launched today between the Creative Action Network, 350.org, Marcacci Communications and Green Patriot Posters to “illustrate the battles we’re winning in the fight to decarbonize our world and defeat climate change."
Climate Victory is a crowdsourced campaign enlisting artists and designers from across the country to create reimagined World War II-style propaganda posters with powerful messages as we fight for a livable future.
The collaborative started with designs including rooftop solar, wind farms, Keystone XL and fossil fuel divestment, but participants can submit a design showing what winning climate victory means to them.
"The fossil fuel industry may have a head start, but climate hawks have momentum in the fight against climate change," so get busy and submit your poster today.

When temperatures hit the 80s Fahrenheit in May above latitude 40, sun-seekers hit the parks, lakes, and beaches, and thoughts turn to summer. By contrast, when temperatures lurk in the drizzly 40s and 50s well into flower season, northerners get impatient for summer. But when those 80-degree temperatures visit latitude 64 in Russia, as they just did, and when sleet disrupts Mother's Day weekend in May in Massachusetts, as it just did, thoughts turn to: what is going on here?

A bill making its way through the Texas legislature would make protesting pipelines a third-degree felony, the same as attempted murder.
