210. Bumper Sticker: Stop Modeling Climate, Start Modeling Human Behavior

I told this to Scott Chatenever (engineer and artist) last night: "If you want to change the environment, stop modeling climate and start modeling human behavior!" And today, those words stuck out like an eyesore. ~#~ again inspired me to do art, so this morning manifested a much-needed bumper sticker for academia. Environmental scientists need to transform their mentality from "denial science" to "interactive science." Becoming players, not intellectual bystanders.

As was most eloquently stated by ~#~, the mission statement of environmental scientists in general: "to save the world... after we collect MORE data."

I'll send this to my dad, ~#~, and Scott. Fun, fun!
