If you passed by the corner of rues de la Gauchetière and Robert-Bourassa this morning, you might have seen an art installation that demands climate change awareness.\nThis striking artwork is part of a new Greenpeace initiative that "brings attention to the impacts of climate change and the role of the oil industry in contributing to the climate crisis," according to an official statement from Greenpeace. It was installed early this morning in collaboration with renowned local street artist, Roadsworth.\nAccording to Greenpeace, the installation is meant to "mimic how oil companies proudly tout the benefits of their products but instead bring attention to the harm they cause because of climate change." The Montreal installation went up in conjunction with 25 others around the world.\nThe installation consists of six 13x13 foot wide banners that depict various climate catastrophes including floods, droughts, and forest fires. Greenpeace argues these disasters are caused by fossil fuel companies.\nOn one of the banners reads, "Désastres climatiques, gracieuseté de Shell, BP, Exxon et Suncor" (Climate disasters brought to you by Shell, BP, Exxon, and Suncor). Greenpeace claims that the 100 biggest fossil fuel companies in the world "are responsible for the majority of the pollution that has triggered the climate crisis."\nACTION Early this morning, Greenpeace activists and street artist Roadsworth placed large banners in downtown Montreal...Posted by Greenpeace Canada on Wednesday, July 31, 2019\nThe artist who helped Greenpeace install these banners, Roadsworth, says that "art is a powerful way to tell the truth about the oil industry. I encourage everyone to embrace their artistic side and explore their own creative ideas to expose the reality of climate change. We can make change happen together, from the ground up."\nREAD ALSO: Toxic Algae On The Rise In Quebec, Making Even More Beaches Unsafe To Swim\nView this post on Instagram 👉 #ActionsNotWords.

If you spot one of them, snap a photo and take some time to think about our impending climate crisis.\nYou can see the Greenpeace banners on the corner of de la Gauchetière and Robert-Bourassa in downtown Montreal.\nView this post on Instagram Together we are formidable. . Greenpeace activists protested against the clearing of forest at Cuchuy farm, located north of Salta, 70 kilometers from the city of Tartagal.
