When I saw this contest I immediately thought about doing something that represents the globlal warming,
focusing in particular on the problem of melting glaciers and the risk of extinction of polar bears, both because it
is a topic that i care a lot about and both to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the International Polar Bear Day
on the 27th February. So i ended up with two polar bears trapped in the globe, watching dead floating fishes in the water
surrounded by oil of an oil crate in the deep sea, while the iceberg starts to melt under their feet. The globe in
this case symbolizes the Earth. The base represents a sort of nuclear reactor that overheats the globe more and
more. The hands show that we are causing those events and it is our choice to take control.

This looks incredible. And that menaing is so deep. Global warming is a real problem and we have to stop it! If we won't we will probably die.

I like the design. The chest is a fun touch.

That said, I have difficulty reading text on that background.

Yes i think we are the major cause of it, or not?
i dont think so, ICE AGE is coming and going with us or without, animals dying everytime, that is completly normal, we cant change that progress. only what we can do is make money with that . Say the human is fault and pay for that . It is a big lie ...

But the temperature of the world is rising also cause of our actions, like deforestation, the carbon dioxide produced by combustion and many other things... it is clear
the temperature is rising because we are going away from the ice age, like summer begins..it is normal like Winter - Summer change. That is not the first time that the Arctic is free of ICE !!! and in the past there werent humans who polutet the world or?!
That is a normal progress temperature rise and fall , nobody can make a differense.
A BIG LIE to have a reason that people must pay.

There will be a reason why the world's temperature has risen by around 7 degrees in just a century.

About 200 years ago, the average global temperature was MUCH lower than it is today. If your excuse for that is "going away from the ice age", then listen to this: Geological time is incredibly slow. It takes thousands of years for the most minor things to happen, and the most an average temperature could change because of an ice age in 200 years is very minor. Even something like the Yellowstone Supervolcano, which is well overdue, still shows no signs of erupting within the next 1,000 years.
Haven't you heard of the Industrial Revolution, Johnny?
i heard it. And what now? What we should do? Stop Shipping and car driving, Your car, phone and your computer is made by industrie..you couldnt be here whitout it. If you want a change than change the hole system and not only polution.

Johnny, phones and computer etc. are things powered by electricity which doesn't need to be made with fossil fules (that burn and let out CO2). We are capable of using, for example, hydropower and and solar power to create electricity.

And yes, we should gradually stop using fossil fule (gasoline etc.) and start using electric cars since they don't have any input on the environment; they don't let out CO2 and the electricity is produced by windmeals, solar and water power.
Phones and computer etc are made of them ! that is plastic and plastic is oil.
Electric cars yes..but do you know how to create a Battery?! how much energy you need and how strong it polut the enviroment! Lithium mines etc...
And you know where the old batteries goes? Africa safe them for us. That is not the right way too.
windmeals, solar it seems very good but the production of it is very bad and expensive

We are going away from the ice age, that much I can agree with. But what humans are doing is a far bigger factor. Global warming happens because we burn fossil fuels like coal, oil and gas to create electricity or power our cars and that process releases CO2 pollution into the atmosphere. There are ALOT of ways to decrease this. Avoiding the usage of personal vehicles and going with public transportation is one really easy example. Deforestation is another major factor. Tress are cut down to be used for building or used as fuel. Trees play an important role in regulating the climate because they absorb carbon dioxide from the air and release oxygen back into it. Forests and bushland act as carbon sinks.

Saying that us humans are unguilty is just straight out false.
i dont say the humans are not guilty, I think its time for the humanity to say good bye.

public transportation do you really want that?! its better to drive your own car to be independent.

Deforestation is a good point, iam from Germany WE do this

I agree. Humans are guilty of aiding in the change of climates across the globe. However, they are only guilty of speeding up the process. The world's climates change depending on the Earth's position in correlation to the sun, and as we get nearer to it, the climate is bound to heat up. And yes, whilst the layers protecting our planet from the sun are being deteriorated by the pollution caused by humans, they will repair themselves when given time, and they do not change the fact that our global temperature will continue to increase as earth moves towards the sun. The human race will be long extinct by the time that our climates become unlivable due to antibiotic resistant infections, famine, disease and the human race's ability to kill eachother over differences in opinion. At the end of the day, you're born to die, so you may as well live your life as if you were going to die tomorrow, instead of trying to portray human life as a blight to the world. We are vital part of the earth's ecosystem, and without us, our earth will perish anyway.

I can't say it's a nice build because I think it's a serious subject that doesn't have any nice aspects. That doesn't mean that it's amazingly executed! The oil and dead fish look great and really show that the polar bears are having a hard time trying to survive. I also like it that you didn't make the bears completely white.
I wish more people would pay attention to their energy consumption. Even shutting down your machines helps instead of putting them on stand by.
