    Acme Climate Action

    $12.99 Inc GST

    WELCOME TO ACME The Eighties - what a decade. Yuppies got mobile phones, there were important changes to the Swedish Act of Succession and we discovered who shot J.R. (it was his scheming sister-in-law and mistress, Kristin). Oh, and for the first time in history, our environmental footprint exceeded the earth's biocapacity. What this meant was humanity was drawing an environmental debt, consuming resources faster then Mother Earth could replace them. And this debt is growing. Let's be 100% clear about this, because this is really important - we are living beyond our means. With the US as the benchmark for global consumption, we would require 25 Earths to satisfy our wants. As it is, we already need one and a half planets for one planet's consumption. We consume more than we can sustainably afford and pollute faster than it can be cleared up. It's time for a new way of thinking. It's time for Acme Climate Action.

    This kit is to get you thinking - and doing something - about the climate crisis. It's designed to be taken apart, poked, cut, stuck, stretched and, well, destroyed. Yes, well destroyed. There are posters, postcards, stickers, letters and notebooks.

    When correctly used, you should have nothing left. With Acme Climate Action you can save the world and get hand exercises at the same time.
