I really don't like the idea of effecting change by making immigrants seem scary, but I think that message is the one most likely to get the attention of those in the US that think climate change is either a hoax or overblown.
It's akin to saying the Titanic isn't sinking because you're on the end of the ship that's 100 feet into the air. Only until they see the water to their ankles, do they start looking for lifeboats. It'll have to take something disastrous and close to home, and by then it's much too late.
I'm betting that nothing can fix climate change. Nothing. We're fucked. We're too stupid as a species to understand long-term, and that is going to be what gets us in the end.
It's just like rabbits. We had too many rabbits on our farm for a couple of years, then suddenly we didn't have any. Too many rabbits breeds disease and death. The same holds true for humans.
And I genuinely feel bad for my child. The planet we will hand him will be garbage.
Will it also show my home from the cold north in a longer and warmer summer, full of flowers and hummingbirds?
Or are "consequences" always negative, whatever the direction (cold/hot) of the climate change?
Peter Paul Rubens did this with paintings in the 1600's. See his paintings "Peace and War" and "Consequences of War"
Even earlier, the Assyrians made massive art works that showed rebel leaders being flayed alive. I am sure that was pretty effective in helping people visualize the consequences of resisting Assyria.
from the paper:
> , we aim to help the general population progress towards greater and more visible
public support for climate change migitation steps on a national level, facilitating governmental
interventions and helping make the required rapid changes to a global sustainable economy.
how is this any different than what the Russians did in 2016 with their fake news memes? Its propaganda for a political purpose.
and for those who will say that climate change is going to end the world, yeah, no shit, but that doesn't mean we should develop propaganda technology that could be used for some other political purpose.
like, what if Trump used the tech developed to change people's opinions about muslims?
