Objectifying Global Warming for Fashion. Good for the cause?

I don’t think so. From a creative aspect, the new Diesel campaign entitled “Global Warming Ready” has created some heat spanning the fashion, advertising and activist worlds, and not all in sync.

Here are his scores from each: carbonfootprint.com 22.54 tons/year nature.org 37 tons/year climatecrisis.net 14.6 tons/year carboncounter.org 14.66? tons/year zerofootprint.net 28.5 tons/year What does this mean?

Unlikely Heroes in Uncertain Times

If you’re of the pessimistic (or realistic) variety you probably can’t stop dwelling on 2 of America’s greatest problems: the credit crunch and global warming. Besides war, these are the hot-button issues on everyone’s mind as the election approaches. Many Americans want a sound approach to economics and the environment in the oval office in […]
