United States Geological Survey (USGS) joined NASA as second US Federal Agency to invite Silicon Valley artist Michael Killen, to share his thoughts that lead him to create paintings that include ‘Sustainability’, ‘Resilience of America’, ‘Climate Change for the Rest of Us’, ‘Population Explosion’, ‘Liberty Fused to Coal and Oil’, and the “Don Quixote Fights Greatest Challenge of Our Time Series of Paintings.’
At USGS annual innovation event December 12, 2014 Michael Killen shared that he had made ‘Don Quixote Meets Ocean Change’ (15 x 6 feet), to help jump start a narrative that calls for the halt of carbon emissions before they destroy the US commercial fishing and seafood industry and all who depend on those industries for jobs and wealth creation. The USGS displayed that painting and ‘Don Quixote Meets Climate Change’ also (15 x 6 feet.)
Michael also shared the New Year Zeitgeists—spirit environment management, political and scientific thoughts; we’ll hear in 2015 and 2016. (In another post Michael will share those thoughts.)
Michael Killen’s is at the AGU 2014 Fall Meeting—largest Earth and space meeting; Thorium Alliance Booth 2617, Hall C. To schedule a meeting a Booth 2617: Michael@killen.com.
