Title

The more we place importance on greed, the less future we have

Description

The recent proposal to repeal the Clean Power Plan was the inspiration for this muralesque painting. With the repeal, it is extremely likely there will be an increase in the CO2 emissions as regulations will be minimized, promoting continued use of coal power plants. While California is making its own clean power regulations, the CO2 emissions increasing in the future for the majority of the United States will still have effects in California. Not only does the increase in air pollution cause health issues as well as expedite aging, the continuing decline of snow in the California Sierra Nevada mountains will also minimize the water resources in California.
