Don’t be Sad, Flying Ace
Perched on the roof of his small house, armed only with a typewriter and a rare imagination, a dog attempts to adapt after a calamitous storm that left him stranded and floating far away from home.Â Â Inspired by Charles Shultzâ€™ iconic beagle and incorporating leading climate science,Â Donâ€™t Be Sad, Flying Ace!Â is a multi-disciplinaryÂ duet exploring how people respond in the face of extreme climatic events.
Created by Jeremy Pickard,Â SimÃ³nÂ Adinia Hanukai and Jonathan Camuzeaux in collaboration with scientists from Columbia University and the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory.
