This is a short story about a strong vision, lack of time, and how a good story overcomes the gap between the two.
The Extinction Thermometer is an art installation I designed and Dana Waldman hand-sculpted to highlight the connection between Climate Change and Biodiversity Loss. If you know the Doomsday Clock, the concept of the Extinction Thermometer is similar. The Extinction Thermometer shows the average global temperature and how far it is from a 1.5ºC rise. This seemingly small temperature change risks “losing the wildlife and biodiversity that make this planet all our home“.
