THE WORK- Climate project
The work concentrates on Australiaʼs contribution to global emissions of CO2, and to the
effects the country is experiencing as a result of climate change.
Mainstream Australia will not be aware we are the worlds largest emitter of CO2 per head
of population. We now emit a staggering 20.58 tonnes per head surpassing the USA in
2009. Much of these emissions are through the burning of coal in order to generate
electricity. Australia also exports more coal than any other country, a double whammy one
would have thought.
There is no such thing as clean coal, the burning of coal is toxic and extremely harmful to
humans and all other life on earth, it also contributes 38% to global CO2 emissions. Coal
in Australia is plentiful and extremely cheap, there are hidden costs however; the future of
the planet as we know it.
Most of us will not have seen first hand the extent of devastation some parts of the country
are undergoing as a result of climate change. Australia is and will continue to be one of the
most effected countries in the world once climate change embeds itself forever on the
human condition.
These photographs aim to address the disconnect between the often difficult to
understand scientific data, misleading media and political misrepresentation and present
the viewer with an immediate visual truth.
