A Sunday poem

I’m really intrigued by the possibilities of art to get people thinking about climate change and how it relates to them. Professor James Renwick will be exploring this with part of the Prime Minister’s Science Communication prize, and is already involved with the Track Zero project which is taking art all around New Zealand to spark conversations.

I saw Jordan Hamel perform this poem last night, and he made us laugh and think. The ending’s a kicker.

Do you know of any other artists working on climate change topics? Would love to hear about them.
