Another piece from GATSBY’s “Welcome Home” series. The playful way that the polar bear and penguin are portrayed in swimming shorts on a melting glacier with the phrase ‘summer forever’ in the background belie the more serious subject matter.
Our polar ice caps are melting at increasingly alarming rates. The latest data shows that they are melting six times faster than they were in the 90s, which has serious consequences for the future. In the next 80 years over 400 million people will be at risk of coastal flooding every year and our sea levels will rise another 21 inches.
A portion of the proceeds from this (and every piece from this series) will be donated to The World Wildlife Fund.
