Takeshi Kawano sculpted a melting deer, polar bear and penguins to illustrate the slow disappearance of wildlife as a result of climate change and eco-system destruction. Kind of goes with the previous post about shark conservation, eh?

How much would I love to leave one of these outside the home of Sarah “Global warming studies are just snake oil science” Palin? Sadly, Palin thinks art is frivolous and was raised to kill caribou, so it wouldn’t really make much of a statement.
