TKC MUST SEE!!! KANSAS CITY CREATIVE CLASS CONFRONT ADAPTIVE CAPACITY!!!



Given that so much of the political discourse is focused on environmental issues and climate treaties this evening. Let's take a look at how the Kansas City creative confronts the crisis.

Check the description of this recent and worthwhile exhibit which required a bit of audience participation at The Drugstore gallery near Westport & Main close to the recent shooting reported earlier today.

Anson the Ornery: "We have all laid awake at night worrying about our individual impact on global warming, only to arise the next morning to drive to work. It’s hard to change your wicked ways when they put food on your table and clothes on your back. Adaptive capacity is the amount of stress an ecosystem can take before it fails. This is made tangible in Adaptive Capacity by having the viewer place small houses made of salt on top of an ice block. It is quite exciting to watch the tiny little houses sink into the slab of ice. Below the ice block is a regular water cooler, one you may find in any office building. The viewer is able to drink the melting ice from the water cooler. As more houses are placed on top of the ice block, the water eventually becomes too salty to drink, a fact that is painfully obvious to the viewer. The houses represent the difficulty of breaking away from this deadly cycle due to our need for shelter and transit . . ."

Notice that the artist isn't offering any policy solution but simply demonstrating a truism that's hard to deny.

Take a look the inventive, local artsy display . . .

Artsy fartsy?

Did you know cow farts contribute to global warming more than cars?

So please eat more chicken.

Trump on climate change: "It's a hoax. I mean, it's a money-making industry, OK? It's a hoax, a lot of it."

Environment saving whacked out zombies . Glad that Pres Trump got the USA out of the liberals crap Obama's scam . We , the American people , would be having to dump BILLION$ OF our dollars to give out to India and China so they could cheat and kick the USA ass in energy production . Thanks Pres Trump for all you do for the real human beings white person of America !

10:49 forgot to mention all the yuuuge pollution emitting from the Pandering Pantsuit's incessant crooked lying whines about her lost election. Add in the bigly carcinogenic emissions from the Pervy Impeached Prez taking frequent flights on his convicted Pedo Pal's jet.

I'm sure there was much less pollution when we relied on horses for transportation. Not.
