Climate change impressionism


Expert predictions anticipate an increase in catastrophic fire events from one every 10 or 20 years to one every year by 2020. Can we afford this outcome environmentally, socially or economically? I think not. From previous experience filming in bushfires, I knew that the heat distortion from bushfire flames would generate an image that imitates the short brush strokes of impressionist painters.
