Paris is grabbing the world's attention again, but this time, it's with environmental messages aimed at the world leaders, including Obama, that gathered for the COP21 climate conference on Monday. 600 fake posters denouncing major corporations were installed behind the glass at bus stops around the city by Brandalism, a UK-based project. 82 artists from 19 countries joined them to help fight corporate control in advertising.

"By sponsoring the climate talks, major polluters such as Air France and GDF-Suez-Engie can promote themselves as part of the solution - when actually they are part of the problem," Joe Elan from Brandalism said in their press release.

"Because the advertising industry force feeds our desires for products created from fossil fuels, they are intimately connected to causing climate change," Elan said. "We are taking their spaces back because we want to challenge the role advertising plays in promoting unsustainable consumerism."

Oh yes, weren't those big white bears cute? My former Member of Parliament assured me that polar bears were once brown bears and would adapt!!! Wel, he's no longer my MP and no longer the party in power so let's see if we can change this notion of, "we will adapt".

This is what happens when economics, the science of the long-term, collides with the human nature to grab as much as possible as soon as possible.

Huge fan of Bored Panda, but to say that "Paris was bombed again" isn't very cool.
