CARBON SEQUESTRATION — STATEMENT
︎︎


Carbon Sequestration is a piece that was made in response to the United States of America’s inaction to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change 1.5 °C report. This piece acknowledges the challenging future we face were we must stop using fossil fuels. Carbon Sequestration dwells on the simplicity of that challenge, we know what must be done, yet there is not an easy way to stop fossil fuel use today, so we continue to burn them.

This piece may struggle to deal with the more complicated issues surrounding ending fossil fuel consumption, what happens to the oil/coal jobs? Do we have enough green infrastructure to switch off? Is everything that runs on oil/coal now junk? Carbon Sequestration does however speak loudly to our need to stop burning coal, and that initial statement will start other dialogs.
