Earth Art (eARTh) is an amazing project through and through. In a bid to prevent humans wreaking havoc on the planet, embarked on this ongoing global campaign of aerial artworks, using people as their paint and the planet as their canvas.

The ‘350’ you see emblazoned on all manner of states and territories below refers to the level of carbon dioxide — 350 ppm (parts per million) — that scientists say we need to maintain in the atmosphere in order to preserve life on our planet. Bearing in mind that the current level is around 392 ppm, you can see why they feel they need to make this clear…
