The Climate Consequences Project

Climate warming variables are complex and dynamic. The spider webs in these works connect Earth's future temperature scenarios with the consequences of warming.

Atmospheric, oceanic, polar and land climate data reported by collection instruments such as satellites and ocean floats were published by the WMO State of the Climate, Global Carbon Atlas & Budget, Carbon Brief, NOAA Arctic Report Card, Ocean Health Index, European Environment Agency, NASA Sea Level Change Program, and the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Assessment Report 6. I created this work while hiking at Pt Reyes National Seashore where this topo map is located. Click on each image for more information.

This work was supported by the Lucid Art Foundation, The Puffin Foundation, Ltd, & Michigan Arts & Culture Council.
