Cool Globes: Hot Ideas for a Cooler Planet, is a public art exhibition designed to raise awareness of solutions to climate change. Cool Globes grew out of a commitment at the Clinton Global Initiative in 2005, and was incorporated as a non-profit organization in 2006. Since that time, Cool Globes premiered in Chicago and went on tour across the country from Washington DC to San Francisco, San Diego, Sundance, Los Angeles, Houston and Cleveland. In the fall of 2009, Cool Globes opened the first international exhibit in Copenhagen. From there our globes were in Geneva, Marseille, Vancouver, and Amsterdam. It is our hope that the millions of people who have experienced the exhibit, leave with a vast array of solutions to climate change, and with one clear message….we can solve this.

2. Food for Thought Muriel Napoli Do you love oranges and other delicious fruits and vegetables? You can make an environmental difference with a greener diet. Avoiding meat just once per week can help. It takes far more fossil fuel energy to generate the same amount of protein from a meat source than from a plant source. 3. Leave a Positive Footprint Cathi Bouzide 4. A carbon footprint is defined as the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) released as a result of your daily activities. Your lifestyle choices, household energy usage, and transportation methods will affect the size of your footprint. 5. Preserve Our Trees and Forests Andrea Harris, Sandie Bacon & Ann Bingham- Freeman 6. Wherever we live, trees also have a profound impact on our day-to-day lives. In addition to beautifying our neighborhoods, trees cut down the need for air conditioning and clean globe- warming CO2 from the air. Every time we plant a tree, we help create a healthier environment. 7. Green Technology Robert Chambers The colors on this globe indicate the imminent threat of global warming. Green landmasses symbolize the potential for change the more green a continent, the more environmentally aware its inhabitants. Red masses are the most vulnerable, indicating the need to advance environmental awareness. 8. Let your voice be heard Paula Clayton 9. Global warming may feel like an overwhelming challenge, but this artist seeks to demonstrate that every individual has a voice, and by joining hands and raising our voices together we can help fight global warming. 10. Water Conservation Sharon Bladholm 11. Water is a valuable commodity, especially in this region of the world. Water conservation is the most reliable and least expensive way to stretch water resources. Low volume agricultural irrigation systems, such as drip-irrigation and micro-sprinklers, can increase efficiency to 90%. 12. Solar Power Alice Sharie Revelski Solar energy is one of the most promising renewable energy sources in the world. It is non- polluting, works anywhere the sun is shining, and allows users to generate their own power quietly and safely. 13. Reduce, Reuse Recycle Mitch Levin Why not strive for zero waste, only purchase products that can be recycled or reused and reduce our trash by composting and recycling. 14. Heal the Planet Mr. Imagination We turn to nature for the essentials that sustain usfresh air, clean water, and nutritious food. We can protect nature and enjoy its bounty by preserving green spaces, using sustainable high-yield agriculture techniques and practicing eco-conscious consumption. 15. Run, Walk and Roll Bob Anderson 16. Cars need gasoline and emit carbons that contribute to global warming; feet just need the water you drink and are carbon- free! Do whats right for your heart and the planet - get moving! 17. Green Transportation Lee Strickland Saving time and money makes sense. Doing what we can to cool down the planet makes sense too. Public transportation is an easy way to cut the globe-warming carbon emissions produced by driving while avoiding the waste and frustration of traffic jams. 18. Green schools Kids working together in the classroom, playground and cafeteria can help prevent global warming by reducing waste, recycling, saving energy and conserving water. Its your planetspend time in school learning to take care of it! 19. Lighting the Way to Change Peter Mars A new generation of bright halogen bulbs uses half as much carbon dioxide- emitting energy as incandescents. Emerging LED lighting alone could save 10% of worldwide electricity consumption. When you change a bulb, will you make it a change for the better? 20. Fuel Efficient Travel Vincent Grech Each liter of gas a car burns puts 2.5 kg of carbon dioxide into the air. New technologies, like hybrid cars, take fuel efficiency to an even higher level. And its not just what you drive; its how you drive! When you are behind the wheel, you can reduce the amount of carbon dioxide your car produces by keeping your speed down. 21. Green Your Home Cathryn Henry-Colcer & Dan Colcer Think green before making purchases in general. 22. Green Roofs Ingrid Albrecht A green roof is both a roof and a garden. Traditional roofs absorb heat , raise city temperatures ,increase pollution and require extra energy to cool and irrigate. In contrast, cities with green roofs experience lower air temperatures and energy costs , less storm water runoff and improved air quality. 23. Listen to our Children Ingrid Albrecht They are young, but wise. Childrens voices can be heard around the world in a multitude of languages, all speaking the same message: Stop global warming! This globe displays artwork sent in by children around the world and illustrates their ideas for solving global warming. 24. Global Leadership Sandra Bacon The William J. Clinton Foundation and the worlds largest cities joined forces to fight global warming. In this globe, the artist identified the cities in this program and illustrated the ripple effect they are having around the globe. 25. The Cool Globes decorate Jerusalems Alrov- Mamilla Esplanade near Jaffa Gate. The exhibit will be on display through the Summer (and perhaps Fall). 26.
