"Dead Bee," Tradigital NFT Artwork, speaks to Colony Collapse Disorder and the dying off of the bee population worldwide. These creations and other traditional art and exhibits stem from my investigation of how rising CO2 levels contribute to the die-off of bees. Researchers found that rising levels of CO2 in the atmosphere from manufacturing have caused a dramatic reduction of protein in pollen. The lack of protein in this vital food source for honey bees has reduced their reproduction ability significantly. This reduction in bees will considerably impact food resources; bees help provide approximately 60% of man's agricultural foods.

The inspiration for these paintings, "Storm Warning" and "Storm Warning Chaos," is climate change, causing the increased severity of storms and severe weather conditions worldwide. These storms are more frequent and intense, causing devastating damage and community deaths.
Although there is no consensus on human contribution to global warming, it would seem obvious. Each year approximately six and a half metric tons of CO2 are released into the atmosphere by burning fuels and manufacturing goods. A significant contributor to what is known as Green House Gases into the atmosphere is the human consumption of disposable goods.
