Ice sculpture display at Brooklyn Public Library raises climate change awareness
A large ice sculpture was installed near the steps of the Brooklyn Public Library on Saturday as part of a project to raise awareness about climate change.
Inside of the block of ice are different signs that say, “green jobs for all” and “one earth, one chance.” There is also a podium made entirely out of ice.
The display was created by the New York League of Conservation Voters. They say residents are encouraged to interact with the art.
Scientists have said that the effects of climate change are rapidly impacting the planet through extreme weather, the extinction of animals and more.
Activists say they want to inspire action not just on the individual level, but through legislation.
The sculpture will remain in Brooklyn until it melts away, which activists say is meant to represent what the future could look like.
