“We are building an army of young people to stop climate change and create millions of good jobs in the process. This dark time in America must come to an end.”

Sara Blažević and Varshini Prakash started the Sunrise Movement. Both are amazing pieces of work.

Sara Blažević, a student from Swarthmore College said, “Communities all over the world are currently feeling the effects of extreme climate change and environmental injustice. This global crisis will only continue growing unless society’s power-holders throw their weight behind solutions to climate change, instead of remaining complicit with environmental destruction.”

Driftwood Charlie’s Contribution To The World

Monday, 18 February 2019

In 1947 the doctors said that Charles Kasling had only a short time to live unless he moved to a hot, dry climate. First he moved to the Death Valley area, and in 1960 he left for Yuma, Arizona, where Driftwood Charley’s World of Lost Art was created.”

Social Security records indicate Charles Kasling was born July 10, 1901 and passed away in March of 1985, a testament to desert living.

Unfortunately most of his artwork has been destroyed by vandalism and the elements.
