Art show for children: "In this vision we have poisoned our environment with toxic waste"
A venerable Aussie art gallery has gone over to the eco-propaganda dark side. An exhibition for children at the Ballarat depicts mankind's impending and well-deserved doom. In the illustration above, post-apocalyptic kangaroo, elk and wolf have "come for what's ours," narrated with the caption:
“In this vision we have poisoned our environment with toxic waste and used up all the natural resources until the earth could no longer support us… In this painting, people are just a memory. The earth has survived and with it some of the plants and animals which lived in harmony with nature, only taking what they needed and adapting…"The poor wolf has apparently had to adapt to eating eucalyptus. Even wild animals are not eco-enough for the eco-religionists.
Check out how hot the outback was in this 1890 painting by David Davies. What better way to illustrate that "Australia is getting hotter and climate change has arrived"?
This -- cough cough -- turkey might be a little -- urk -- overcooked. Hope yours is better!
