Dehydration or global warming solution: surreal art-print, poster, book, desktop-wallpaper NeoSurrealismArt.com
We’ve been told that the world is about to come to its end because of global warming. Temperatures are soaring, they say, ice is melting, glaciers are retreating, sea levels are rising, and we’re all going to either fry or drown. Global terrorism seems petty in the light of the imminent disaster. Science is adamant there’s no doubt. Any global warming scepticism is not only frowned upon but taken as a sure sign of insanity. Every developed nation is demoralized by carefully measuring its carbon footprint and blaming the Big Brother for all the sins imaginable. Schools are communicating the idea of a global warming as an absolute truth, so our children are pulled into this race from the very onset of their educational escapade. Global warming has become a synonym of a global warning. The earth should be put to a hold, really, because rotation has lost its moral value.
The Royal Society says there’s no longer any room for scientific doubt about it. Britain’s Chief Scientist says it’s a bigger threat than global terrorism. Every global warming sceptic is denounced as clinically insane. Every developed nation wags its finger at every other. Every politician and celebrity now anxiously measures his or her carbon footprint. Every British schoolchild is now drilled to believe that man-made global warming is a Fact along with poverty and the existence of Belgium. It’s a wonder any of us has any incentive to get up in the morning. ;)
Is it the latest fad to take everything mass media declares at face value? I would think that we should know better than that. And I have a suggestion to make: let us take all existing hoaxes – global warning, oops, warming being one of them – and start prioritizing them. It is a matter of personal choice, really, what type of apocalypse to be expecting. Submarine mines as desert roses and long-legged steam-ships might appeal to sticklers for global warming. But, with all honesty, I choose new ice age instead!
The Telegraph has reported that, although during January Europe, northern Asia and most of Australia experienced above average temperatures, large parts of the globe had their coldest winter for decades!!! So you might think that the news that the world isn’t frying after all would be all over the media. World saved! Imagine the relief as a weeping nation storms its corner newsagents or rushes to switch on the Today program to learn that it is not, after all, doomed! Or alternatively, if apocalyptic millenarianism is something you just can't live without, that we are all about to freeze to death in a new ice age!

You have got to be kidding. Global warming my ... :)

In a word: Fantastic! Two words: Love it! Considering all the tripe and trash that's passed off as "art" in this world it is most refreshing to see delicious, imaginative and competent art. My field of art is more in the satirical/mechanical area..

Thank you! Finally, an artist with common sense, so sadly lacking lately as to be as common as the Dodo. As I am sceptical of every "fact" force fed to us for political power and mind control, I'm obviously clinically insane. I love your artwork, too.

Dear Essayons, if you read the image description, you would understand that the picture title is ironic and somewhat skeptical. That is a great sample how an idea could be interpreted wrongly by the folks who are always ready to fight. Peace V. :)

Mr. Grie. Wag a finger at America about emissions? Sir, you have obviously fallen victim to the sheep-like "Blame America for everything with or without proof" crowd.Chinas emissions are a HELL of alot more than Americas as well as plenty of other nations

If we really understand where the optimal point of our wealth is, the global warming problem will disappear spontaneously. (See W. Ying, 2010, articlesbase.com, "wealth at Optimal Point, Instinct and Wisdom")

I keep trying to leave a comment but can't somehow.Any way,I love your work it's really haunting and beautiful. Your dehydration is wild.

Love this one & all the artwork I've seen so far on the site. Interesting reading as well. But I did have a chuckle at your description on this one. I'm one of those that may could be denounced as clinically insane. Thanks for the push for thought.

very appt title! Cool, makes me wonder how rough the ride would be with them tiny wheels lol! Way cool, and very surreal!

The idea of a human cause is medieval. A byzantine chronicler, Theophanes, wrote on the freezing of the Black Sea in 763-764 AD, icebergs were crashing into the walls of Byzantium. He blames human "sins". Over 1200 years later, nothing has changed.

Very interesting view and nice solution. Also very pretty image. However, I'd like to mention that it's not just about global warming frying the globe, but also extreme, or at least some incongruous weather. So the coldest and warmest winters fit.

Wow! You're work is breath taking!! Seriously sick.
