The artist of New England, and the use of climate change as an inspiration for his work.

Northeastern University’s Thomas Starr came up with the time travel project is known as the “Memory of the Climate Futures.”

He has placed plaques around the towns and cities in order to draw attention to the potential impacts of climate change and the increasing frequency of weather disasters, heat waves, droughts, more powerful storms, flooding, and other problems, such as The Associated Press reported.

These dinner plate-size signs to more detailed events, such as the rising of the sea level rise — and an explosion of events and something that really hasn’t happened yet.

It is written from the perspective of someone in the 22nd century to look back.

“The concept is to really take the information in the web sites, and package it in a way to do this is to place them in the landscape where people can bump into it,” he told The Associated Press.

He has placed in 11 of plaques in Durham, N. H.-six, in Essex, Mass., with the intention to set up in Cambridge, Mass., as well.

He said that his goal is to to the American apathy.

“As We read in the news about the Polar ice caps are melting, and the effects on polar bears,” said Durham Town Manager Todd Selig. “It’s very difficult for someone in Durham, New Hampshire, and go on about their busy lives, to relate to and understand.”

“It’s a good thing. At least we can say to our grandchildren that we did something,” said Adam Perkins, a tow-truck driver, from Durham, who were looking for a renewable energy-the plaque is in the hall the other day.
