ABOUT THE ART
"This 'Only the Finest Poison' print is a critique of the many methods the oil industries use to maintain business as usual, including deceptive marketing, bribing politicians, discrediting science, and concealing the truth.
The news clipping included in the piece is a portion of an article revealing that ExxonMobile has known, based on their internal scientific research, for over 40 years that burning fossil fuels is warming the planet. Yet, they hid the research and publicly denied the impact of fossil fuels on climate change.
It is challenging to break through the formidable layers of deterrence put in place by the powerful corporations who put profits before people and the planet, but breaking through is essential to a healthy future. A portion of proceeds from this print will benefit Greenpeace USA to support their work to fight climate change.
Thanks for caring. The speckletone paper used in this print is composed of recycled material."
