Rosanne Walsh on art and the earth: A Climate Hawk's Companion Podcast

For many Climate Hawks, global warming touches on deep emotions. Art, in all it’s forms, can help us deal with the anger, grief, hope and fear that the act of facing climate change can evoke. To help explore this topic, we talked to Rosanne Walsh ,  an artist living north of New York. Her paintings are figurative allegories which explore perceived personal responsibility for changes in the social order. Other themes that play strongly into her narrative are concerns about her personal relationship with the unparalleled spectacle of the natural world. Come listen as we discuss the role of art in dealing with the sustainability crisis of our time. See below the podcast player for a couple of her pictures.

Because we recognize the necessity of personal accountability for our actions, because we accept responsibility for building a durable future and because we believe it is our patriotic duty as citizens to speak out, we must insist that the United States put a price on carbon.

Thanks for listening.
