How Can We Effect Change?

"Climate change is a reality. Caused by us all, it is a cultural, social and economic problem and must move beyond scientific debate. Cape Farewell is committed to the notion that artists can engage the public in this issue, through creative insight and vision." David Buckland, 2007

"Hardly anyone realises it yet, but the debate about climate change is over. Scientists around the world have now amassed a virtually unassailable body of evidence to support the conclusion that a rapid warming of our planet - caused principally by greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuel burning - is under way." Mark Lynas
