National Parks 2050

wpa+side+by+side4

In a grim yet horrifyingly accurate portrayal, artist Hannah Rothstein beautifully creates dystopian future versions of classic National Park posters. The designs for the 2050 versions are set next to their classic counterpoints, showing the devastation that very well may occur unless we start waking up to the realities of climate change. And our very horrible president isn’t going to be doing any favors to our parks, in that regard.  Rothstein is selling her work in poster form, with 25% of profits going to climate related causes.

From the artist’s website:

“Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.” -Aldous Huxley

National Parks 2050 is a call to action. Drawing upon the classic National Parks posters, this series shows how climate change will affect seven of America’s most beloved landscapes. In doing so, it makes climate change feel close to home and hard to ignore.
