Note: You will notice my use of the appropriate euphemism of the day to describe the nonphenomenon previously known as anthropogenic global warming, global warming, and climate change.
I have already described the new approach chosen by “doomsayers selling fear-based costly political solutions” to “climate disruption,” which has to be — given that the earth itself is turning out to be the big mother Gaia of all “deniers” — their approach to marketing.
The Huffington Post has a new one. I suppose they are taking this marketing cue from the sad-faced dogs and cats from the ASPCA advertisements:
We’ve read the daunting headlines. We’ve seen the bleak predictions. We know in our minds that climate change is putting our Earth’s future in danger. And yet there’s something uniquely frightening about this artist’s attempt to transform global warming data into visceral, human responses.
In his black-and-white photography series “Scared Scientists,” Nick Bowers captures a raw element not often associated with scientific knowledge. For the series, Bowers interviewed a selection of scientists in varying fields, capturing the frightened looks on their faces while they contemplated their findings. The photos are minimalist but intense, each wrinkle and crease pointing to a human unease we can all connect with.
