Healing the World

This progressive photograph is the latest in my ocean wave grid photographs, the first of which was taken on April 20, 2010 the day the Deepwater Horizon Oil Rig went BANG. This particular set of photographs was taken on Poodle Beach in Rehoboth Beach on July 28th, 2010. I would like to do an exhibit of these and other ocean / saltwater marsh related artwork, and contribute the proceeds (after expenses) to the Worldwide Fund for Nature, the Nature Conservancy, the Union of Concerned Scientists or other organizations whose philosophy and goals are similar to my own. Thus, the goals for such an exhibition would be the following.

1. To protect existing natural environment and wildlife.
2. To promote a clean natural environment that encourages the growth of bio-diversity.
3. To promote clean / renewable energy such as wind and solar.
4. To raise awareness of the threat to the natural environment from the consumption and use of oil based products.
5. To help provide funding for (an) organization (s) whose goals are the same as or similar to my own.

A major concern of mine is the specious argument put forward by conservatives that climate change does not exist. Of course, it does – it is a proven fact! So, I want to argue for those things that will create change in human behavior. There is no point participating in an argument based in faulty logic and behavior.
