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.

It is pretty amazing that in this moment when the COVID-19 outbreak has much of the country holed up in their homes binging Netflix, the most watched show in America over the last few weeks has been focused on wildlife trade — which scientists believe is the source of the COVID-19 pandemic. Make no mistake: Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness is about wildlife trade and other aspects of wildlife exploitation, just as surely as the appearance of Ebola, SARS, MERS, avian flu and probably COVID-19 in humans is a result of wildlife exploitation. As a conservationist, this is one of the things I've been thinking about while watching Tiger King. Here are five more:
