Ice Watch, in front of Tate Modern, London

Motivating changes to our behaviour requires an expanded strategy. We need to communicate the fact of climate change to hearts as well as heads, to emotions as well as minds. #IceWatchLondon

Arctic sea ice concentration for Septembers in the period 1979–2018. The visualisation was made by climate scientist professor Ed Hawkins @climatehawkins and is based on data from NSIDC, the US National Snow & Ice Data Center. More info at climate-lab-book.ac.uk

‘I want better metaphors. I want better stories. I want more openness. I want better questions. All these things feel like they give us tools that are a little more commensurate with the amazing possibilities and the terrible realities that we face.’ – Rebecca Solnit https://t.co/60svpKq2At

As our global representatives travelled from afar to meet each other at COP24, happening now in Katowice, the glacial ice has travelled from afar to meet you now in London. What’s the nature of your meeting? #icewatchlondon #COP24

Ice Watch opens today on Bankside, outside TATE Modern, and in the City of London, outside Bloomberg’s European headquarters

Glacial ice astray - why are these blocks of ice appearing in London? Displaced. Strangers. Nature at the heart of civilisation and capital. The blocks have travelled from afar. What happens in the Arctic, doesn't stay in the Arctic. #Icewatchlondon

"Despair is the state we fall into when our imagination fails. When we have no stories that describe the present and guide the future, hope evaporates. Political failure is, in essence, a failure of imagination." - George Monbiot, Out of the Wreckage. @GeorgeMonbiot
