Science and Art meet

Normally I only post my own work.  Today I saw this in the Seattle Times and found it so compelling I feel the need to post about it.

Greg Johnson is a Seattle based COAA oceanographer.  He has condensed the 2,200 pages of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report into 19 illustrated Haiku.  He painted the watercolor illustrations himself.

See more information and the booklet here.  On that site it is available as several versions in .pdf format.
