"Melting ice-capped mountaintops for you" oil on canvas 100 * 100 cm
The title comes from an old Lou Reed song on his famous 1973 "Transformer" album. It's the earliest reference I rember to climate change and descibes the image well. It's somewhere along the coast of Greenland where the "rivers of ice" flow directly into the sea in the form of huge icebergs. If we had Google Earth ten years ago you would have seen that the big ice river shown here would have been much longer.
