    What a perfect way of describing what the reality is of these conditions, an early warning system that what is happening in our world is not healthy for anyone. Love the painting of the canary and you really nailed this making a powerful statement! Here's to hoping the world takes notice and does something so the canary lives and flies freely in good health.

      As Annette mentioned below, business and government seem to care very very little about the environment, or the state of the average worker, if the recent RBC scandal is to be believed (and I do believe it). This is why unions were formed in the first place, and basically tells us that they are still needed as we can't trust corporations to regulate themselves.

    That is not the happiest canary ever. It seems to be showing concern about what is going on. But it seems that current culture and governments and business are determined to push the environment to its outer limits. It is very discouraging

      LOL – it was a very quick painting, Annette, as I didn't have a picture of a dirty canary on hand. Ultimately, he probably ended up looking bedraggled enough for my purposes. Alas, I have to agree with you about the current corporate and government attitude to the environment, and consequently, our health.

      I have begun researching stats on increasing rates of AI diseases, and it seems that apart from some general statements, many of the specific results are not forthcoming. I will keep digging.

      I do not quite have the resources of 60 Minutes, but we must do our best! Thanks for commenting!
