Inspired by urgency of addressing climate change, and vested interests in coal. Former PM Scott Morrison wields his piece of coal, which is ablaze. He is surrounded by old texts promoting development and white supremacy. Above is a large Qld coal mine and power station, flanked by NSW floods and bushfires. Above, nature surpasses (scene fr Mt Walsh, Qld, can also be viewed as human activity subverting nature). The whole on cardboard packet in a cross shape symbolising pulping of trees for consumer packaging.
