California’s Climate Plan Is Getting a New Look

The Government of California defines the shape and form of California Climate Plan—one of the most important public policies of our time. Michael Killen, Silicon Valley Artist, Syndicated TV Talk Show Host and Visiting Radio Host at Stanford (University) Radio is creating a new view of this public policy. It is a symbolic representation of the plan-a painting(s). The paintings will enable us to to see the plan.

He is articulating, on canvas, what he believes is the structure and elements of the plan that help make it a success. He is doing this to help policymakers in other states and countries implement their own successful climate action plan.  And, he is  also doing this  to enable the people of Califonia deepen their understanding of the plan.

Michael is no stranger to the task of painting complex issues and developments. He has interpreted such topics as sustainability, resilience, ocean acidification, ocean change, sea level rise, drought, a national climate and energy plan for the GOP, population explosion, the vulnerability of the electric grid, cap and trade, the birth of the electric car, and Sec. George Shultz’s Climate and National Energy Recommendation to Congress.

He made the 24-foot painting “Sustainability” at the request of NASA Ames. Governor Jerry Brown’s Office of Planning and Research displays three of Michael’s large works permanently. The US Dept. of Commerce, USGS, Save the Bay, Sustainable Silicon Valley, Silicon Valley Energy Summit at Stanford, and the governments of Atherton, County of Santa Clara, and Palo Alto are among the local governments that displayed his paintings at their events.

Michael welcomes inquiries from everyone, especially those who want to discuss how they can help make this project a success or want access to the art for their events.
