About this product
- DescriptionConspiracy theories, pending Ice Ages, potential revolutions, viral epidemics, and other doomsday prophecies: whereveryou look from the cover of <em>Time</em> magazine to the weird weather outside your window the message seems universal: the Earth our children inherit will certainly be thing like the one we currently inhabit. UN reports and newspaper articles are illustrated with dry charts and graphs predicting techlogical, ecomic, and ecological transformations that are already dramatically altering the way we live. <em>Forecast</em> revisualizes these abstractions about everything from our environ-ment to our waistlines, from the stock market to the Middle East through the eyes of cartoonists and graphic designers who have made comics with a conscience: Ward Sutton imagines a nation divided into a red and a blue zone; Paula Scher maps out the Northern Hemisphere of 2100; Elizabeth Amon interviews <em>New Yorker</em> journalist Elizabeth Kolbert on global warming; and Tom Tomorrow looks back on the legacy of Bush-Cheney. Ultimately, <em>Forecast</em> is an optimistic book: using humor, it encourages all of us to take responsibility for predictions of the future and to take action to affect change. <em>Forecast</em> is the latest installment of Nozone. Featured in the Cooper Hewitt's Design Triennial, Nozone is a decade-old political graphic design and comics zine, editedaround a theme.
