The roller’s sponge holds the paint, distributing it in a perfect coat on the wall without any hassle. You end up wasting less paint, coating your wall evenly, and staying mess-free. Now imagine ...

Climate Change Gets Strikingly Visualized by a Scottish Art Installation

What does it accomplish to talk about climate change? Even those who talk about climate change professionally might find it hard to say. If you really want to make a point about rising sea levels — not to mention all the other changes predicted to afflict a warming Earth — you might do better to show, not tell.
