    Seeing Climate Change In The Mind’s Eye, Part 1

    Your Climate Change Monsters, Revealed; The face of climate change, as chosen by Atlas Obscura readers.

    Natasha Frost, February 23, 2018 (Atlas Obscura)

    “Climate change is scary. Climate change monsters, it turns out, are too. For decades, people have been inspired by dramatic environmental changes when coming up with creatures and horrorscapes. One of the most famous is Frankenstein’s monster, who emerged from the mind of Mary Shelley during what was known as The Year Without a Summer…[Almost 100 Atlas Obscura readers submitted their visions of climate change] with creatures scaly and slimy, humanoid and extraterrestrial. Some come from the top of the planet, while others thrive at the bottom of the ocean…”

    From Jesse Bethea: “In my mind, the climate change monster looks like a giant, shark-sized catfish, with the visible, crooked teeth of a sand tiger shark, but without a shark’s smooth, streamlined and somewhat comforting features. In place of a shark’s fin it has long, striped spines, not unlike a lion fish’s spines, the sort of thing that brushes against your leg in murky water and you think there might be something there…It doesn’t have any eyes, because eyes give an animal a certain level of personality, or a sense of empathy, and the climate change monster has no empathy. The lack of eyes also makes it seem less dangerous. Even if it has all these fearsome spikes and things, if it doesn’t have eyes, it’s not going to go after you, right? … This is how it operates—the climate change monster lets you drift ever closer, and by the time you’ve realized it is not only as dangerous as it appears, but is also very, very real, it’s too late.” click here for more
