How does your community or city contribute to climate change?
This is a picture taken from the island of Penang. Living by the ocean, I see the ocean, its ever-changing tides and colors, every day. With this piece, I wanted to show that even though the view may look gorgeous, the reality is that our ocean and our climate is in danger. More often than not, I see tourists and locals carelessly litter all along our beach. Not only do these wastes pollute the ocean, their usage is also harming the environment tremendously. As small as it may seem, a single plastic bag or bottle has a history of carbon dioxide emissions that contributes to climate change. We need to recognize the RED ZONE in our communities and raise our voices.
