Artist : Mitch Levin. Title: Reduse, Reuse, Recycle.
Reduse, Reuse, Recycle. ( Maison Van Der Boer)
Artist Levin says:
"What if we were to cover the global with garbage? Sound like a ridiculous consept? But in essence that is what we are doing, filling our landfiles with waste, raw materials and an ambudance of usable objects. Why not strive for " Zero" waste, only buy or manufacture products that can be recycled completely ,or reused. Also reduse our trash by not over packaging and trully separating all our garbage. My globe, "Reduse, Reuse, Recycle" represents these ideas. The water surface was covered with the bottoms of over 1000 aluminium cans, and I reused over 100 HDPE # 2 containers to cover the continents in a farmland- like pattern. So don't waste, instead Greate and lets think about solutions and new ways too, reduce our garbage, reuse our products and recycle these precious raw materials."
Artist : Paola Clayton. Title: Let Your Voice Be Heard.
"Global warming may feel like an overwhelming challenge, but with this globe, artist Clayton shows us that every indivitual has a voice, and that by joining hands and raising our voice together we can help fight global warming. Throughout the globe you can see specific examples of small changes  we can make in our own lives, such as carpooling and buying local products. What other examples you can find? What example will you begin to implement?"
Artist: Kathryn Henry Colcer & Dan Colcer. Title: " Green your office".
The artist says: " Can you green your working environment? Paper is a good place to start.The average American uses nearly 700 pounds of paper a year. In the Netherlands this is nearly 450 pounds per person per year. To ensure that your paper gets a second change, put recycled bins in convenient locations. Consider using paperless fax modems for computers and a duplexing copier for duble-sided paper. Reuse envelops for internal circulation, and don't forget to recycle ink cartridges. Think green before making office purshases. Use products with a longer life, such as low energy CFL bulbs. Buy recycled paper products. Consider buying Energy Star office equipment , which has power managment features. Reduce energy concumption by using flat panel LCD screens , laptops, and ink jets. Take care of the equipment do you have. Remember to switch it off or set it to sleep when it is not in use, or even better, unplug it. Is helping the environment on your ' to do' list?

Artist : John Santoto & Arthur Santoro.Title : Listen to our children - ' Kids Care'.
" Our children are speaking out...it's about time we listen. Children from all around the world are saying the same message: Stop global warming! Climate change is a global problem that will affect all of us, but no one more than the future generations. Kids understand the urgency and they also undertand that this is a solvable problem. From Kenya to Kazakhastan, youngsters and leading the way by recycling, replanting, composting kitchen waste, saving energy and reminding us that the solutions to global warming are abundant and all around us! 'Kids Care' by John Santoro and Arthur Santoro portrays artwork sent in by children from all around the world and illustrates their ideas for solving global warming.
Artist: Vivian Visser. Title: Tidal Energy.
" We all know the power of the ocean waves. But how many of us know that these waves are a viable source
for energy? Harnessing the power of the ocean's water can generate electricity and this resource has great future for us and the next generations. The ever-presence of waves allows countries with large coastlines to produce 5% or more of their electricity from wave power. One application of this wave-technology is the Pelamis Wave Energy Converter. The converter, a serie of semi- submerged cylinders hinged together. The motion of the water creates electrisity. Wave farms  consisting of three Pelamis machines can displace more than 6.000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions .So cutch a wave and convert it into energy!
Artist: Lindsay Obermeyer.Title: Adjust your thermostat.
"In the old days folks warmed up by puting on a sweater or cozyning up to a cracking fire. Common service solutions like these are good choices again in the fight against global warming. Half the energy to your home runs your heating and cooling systems. You can crub greenhouse gas by simply adjusting your thermostat. Try setting the temperature at 68* or lower in the winter and 78* or higher in the summer.Programmable thermostats let you regulate temperature to conserve energy when you are asleep or away. Don't be afraid to ask restaurant, theater or office managers to turn down the air conditioning. Commercial buildings consmume about one sixth of all energy used in the Western World, and up to one third of that is for air conditioning.
You should not need a sweater when it's 80* outside. Where did you set your thermostat?"
