Fighting climate change: one NFT at a time
According to NASA, the scientific evidence for global warming is clear. In addition, human activities are responsible for warming the atmosphere, ocean and land. This leads to global temperature rise, ocean warming, sea level rise and other extreme events. This was one of the topics during the Blockchance Conference 2021.
Pulitzer Prize winner Lynsey Addario uses NFTs to raise awareness of climate change. Her first photo collection, From the Flames, effectively portrays the harsh reality of climate change, particularly global warming.
The NFT includes 2 powerful photos taken during the 2021 California fires. These photos were featured in National Geographic, where one even made it onto the cover of National Geographic’s Year in Pictures.
This NFT is now available on the MakersPlace NFT marketplace. Lynsey includes a printed and signed version along with the digital version with purchase. She then donates 10% of all proceeds to the Wildland Firefighter Foundation. They are basically a non-profit organization that provides aid to the families of fallen firefighters and firefighters injured in the line of duty.
At the risk of sounding like a broken record, let’s do our part to fight climate change. For ourselves and for our children. We have that!
