Bushfire Brandalism : A guerrilla campaign
Political posters replaced outdoor advertising in three cities to show 41 artists' anger towards Australian government
AUSTRALIA FIRES – The catastrophic blazes that are devastating the Aussies
Fires happen in Australia every year, but not fires like these. Experts say they warned the Australian government for decades that the country’s rising temperature and increasing droughts would spark a blaze unlike anything they’d seen before. Yet when the wildfires began to ravage the states of New South Wales and Victoria a few months ago, firefighters say they were unprepared and under-resourced. The blowback has been ferocious and has fallen mainly on the shoulders of Prime Minister Scott Morrison. Is it fair? Can any one person be to blame for such a vast calamity?

Infamously exclusive, the Davos summit attracts everyone from CEOs to celebrities tackling subjects as diverse as crypto currency and quantum computing. And this year, is no different. But what is different is the theme, which essentially boils down to 'capitalism with a conscience.' But do the titans of industry who've gathered in the heart of the Alps really care about protecting the environment?

Our oceans are doing worse than we feared.
The earth's seas are rising, faster than scientists thought they would because the earth is warming quicker than they thought too. Glaciers and polar ice caps are melting, the oceans are getting more acidic and these things affect us all. Most concerning: they may now be compounding which means whats going on will get way way worse before it gets better, if it gets better.

Fewer words, more action on climate change!
At the UN, world leaders discuss the dangers the planet faces if pollution is not reduced. We've been here before, there have been many summits much talking and yet polluting emissions continue to increase and the planet continues to warm.
