Climate Issues

I'm looking forward to taking a day off in May so that I can pluck all of my new gray hairs out of my head. The last couple of months have been non-stop so I just wanted to show you kind folks some images from a project I've been working on with Wonky, an animation studio based in Bristol. Hopefully, once pitched, this project will develop into a fantastic animated documentary or interactive game under the title 'Climate Changed'.

The first image represents an idea of our current climate with glaciers dwarfing cities but pollution still being a factor in our everyday lives.
This image represents the year 2050 if we continue expanding our cities and destroying our environment. Water levels will rise because the glaciers are melting at an alarming rate and the sun will become more dangerous as the ozone layer is broken down due to the intense pollution.
The third and final image demonstrates that we need to find a way to even out what we take and what we give back environmentally so that we can reach a compromise with nature. The space cars below are hover cars that work by using reusable energies. I know they look stupidly futuristic but back in the 60's and 70's the interpretation of the year 2000 was freaking bonkers, just look at Buck Rogers. I suppose I'm still bitter that the 'Back to the Future II' hover boards were never made. Damn you Michael J Fox and damn you too 1980's.
I'll post some more of this project soon if anyone is interested. Thanks for reading!

I love your climate change project, Ben. How did I get such a clever son? It must be all the Postman Pat vans I drew for you! Ha Ha xxxxxx
