There is always a conflict of interest when money is involved. Through the combination of traditional Chinese ink landscape drawing and graphing methods I am questioning the treatment of the Earth and the “truth” in what the media portrays. The background is a collage of american bills and it is referenceing that many developing countries depend on “sea level rise” to receive monetary aid from industrial countries who take advantage of the resources available within the landscape. With the addition of a graph from the IPCC overlaid, it shows that sea level is on the rise. However, Sea level have been rising and falling throughout history and the data shown is only from computer based models.
