The kind of Earth we live upon in the future is in a big way up to us . . . NOW. Hillside Elementary School in Closter, New Jersey creates an image which is a metaphor for our plight as humans. The choice is ours. What will we create? There are about 400 kids squeezed into the Earth In Hand . . . the current level of carbon in our atmosphere. The last time it was this high was 2.5 million years ago. There were no ice caps then, the sea was 5 meters higher, the climate 3 degrees centigrade warmer: not conducive for human life.
