There isn’t much an artist can do except add to the shouts for change. The fossil fuel industry is still leading the charge for the impending destruction of our living environment. Added to this, industrialised farming is carving through carbon-capturing forests so that they can produce meat, where a plant-based diet would ensure a more responsible usage of the resources available for all the people of the planet. And our governments continue to prevaricate and procrastinate while the planet warms.
I have been writing on the street since the 1980s and the respectable and responsible model citizens among us have declared it ‘vandalism’…
Well the real act of vandalism is being inflicted on the planet; our living environment. It’s being done in the name of the ‘free market’ as this, we are continually being told, is the most efficient way for us to live.
Well, enough is enough. The free market has failed us. We need a new model and the execution of that change can only be made at governmental level. We are told we need to recycle plastics more – but nobody legislates against excessive packaging to stop the problem at source. We are told we need to take fewer car journeys – but nobody legislates for free public transport for all. We are told to save energy – but nobody legislates for free programmes of domestic insulation and green power production.
We are told we need to build a green economy but nobody legislates the free, or even affordable, tools to do so.
Big business continues to financially clean up, while it ecologically vandalises.
So, as a model citizen, within a free market, I give you free posters. To print and paste where you will and to add to the demands for change.
Before it’s too late.
