ABOUT THE ART
"This Wetland Powers print examines the repercussions of a Supreme Court largely in the pockets of big oil. Government is supposed to create the greatest good for the greatest number of people. Still, the conservative justices in the current Supreme Court have put the agendas of big oil and wealthy property owners ahead of safe and clean water for the citizenry.
The concept of "common assets"… that resources like air and water are owned by no one and need to be protected for the benefit of all, seems lost on many people in business and government. It is up to us as voters to elect representatives who put the needs of the citizens first. The Supreme Court makeup is always important to consider when voting for our president since the sitting president selects appointees for Supreme Court justices. A portion of proceeds from this print go to Greenpeace USA's efforts to fight for responsible environmental policies. Thanks for caring!"
