Swimming in Kelp


This is a watercolor of  two lovely kelp farmers — kelp being one type of energy of the future — swimming in a kelp farm.  Kelp farms are mostly underwater so obviously these two are able to breath underwater, another possibility given what people in the future are facing with sea level rise. Climate scientists have just told us that even with only a 2 degree rise in global temperatures, that could still mean an 80 foot (or more) sea level rise. It turns out that climate sensitivity is far more serious than previously thought. We may all need gills, or some sort of ability to breath under water!
