EcoLabs, a network of designers and artists who are looking to create what they call â€œecological literacyâ€ has an excellent new magazine outÂ EcoMag, which puts their ideas into practice. Itâ€™s available via as a low res download or as an online purchase for Â£10.
It leads off with a feature in which six artists visualiseÂ Mark Lynasâ€™sÂ Six Degrees. For anyone who hasnâ€™t read itÂ Six Degrees is about six different climate warming scenarios, each marked by a single degree increase in the earthâ€™s temperature. This isÂ Jody Bartonâ€™s rendition of Five Degrees. The accompanying text reads:
With five degrees of global warming, an entirely new planet is coming into being- one largely unrecognisable from the Earth we know todayâ€¦ Humans are herded into shrinking zones of habitability by the twin crises of drought and flood.
