Climate Guardians

Coal Requiem

Opening Performance Art piece Coal Requiem for the Lorne Sculpture Biennale 2014

Our founding act is the Climate Guardians who use angel iconography to highlight the vital role of guardianship of precious natural resources in addressing the global threat from the climate emergency. Graceful, haunting, and iconic, the Climate Guardians attract people to them with a beautiful simple clear message of hope through collaborative, effective climate action. They urge care for the precious natural world to protect children and future generations from the imminent threat of climate breakdown.

Global warming requires immediate action. Resource wars are destabilizing world peace. Climate Guardians ask leaders to declare a state of climate emergency to keep coal, oil and gas in the ground. We must urgently and fairly transition to 100% renewable energy. All lives depend on a safe climate. Failure is not an option. Action, as outlined in Our Safe Climate Demands is our moral responsibility.

One response to “Climate Guardians

  1. Hi guys, what a wonderful image of you at the Lorne sculpture festival. We are a community group- Surf Coast air Action -working hard to get the Alcoa coal mine and power plant at Anglesea closed. We are planning a Human sign on 22nd June at Anglesea beach. I noticed your fabulous flares and am wondering if you could let me know what they are and where we could perhaps get them. Would appreciate your help. thanks
