climate change / polar bear

In 2009, an environmental acitivist friend of mine had the chance to go to Copenhagen and join the world government meetings and talks on climate change. She ask me to design a tshirt for her to wear so i design a tshirt for her and the image stuck with me and i painted it from time to time in art events, on walls and in some interviews i explain that not much has been discussed in local media on climate change and the action or strategy or resolutions towards it. So here are some images and timeline on the polar bear standing on the last melting block of ice while searching for another ice block or land , i titled this image 'emigrate' but later i remembered 1 of Megadeth song titled 'Countdown to extinction' which could be the title and then i remembered one of Nofx song lyrics 'extinction never felt so good' from the song 'Dinosaurs will die' that could be the title of this polar bear illustrations so, those are the 3 titles 'Emigrate', 'Countdown to extinction' and 'Extinction never felt so good' or maybe one more 'apati' in the case of malaisean society towards climate change issues.
