Interested in the egregious disinformation on climate science and policy generated by
the largest eight fossil fuel corporations. These eight, products are responsible for nearly
15 percent of industrial carbon emissions since 1851. They are: Chevron, ExxonMobil, British Petroleum, Royal Dutch Shell, Conoco-Phillips, Peabody Energy, CONSOL Energy, and Arch.

 

I uses carbon and artificial blue silk hydrangers (a imitation of nature and a symbol of heartlessness), and used steel mufflers (filed with elemental carbon particles). Partly inspired by Lonnie Holley (MassMoca), Hans Haacke, and Sophie Calle (List Visual Art Center, M.I.T.).

 


“The major fossil fuel producers bear a particular responsibility for climate change.”

Union of Concerned Scientist, October 2016
