Social Futures of London under Climate Change

A show at the London Museum features photographs of "possible futures" for metro London transformed by climate change. These are very convincing photos and captions that reveal the social and political implications of climate change in a way that few scientists have. Also notice the not-so-subtle allusion to the invasion of foreign cultures from the global south as climate changes, alluding also to the UK's current conflict with global south and Asian immigrants.

The show, called "Postcards from the Future", can be found at the huffingtonpost and at its own blog, London Futures.
