There are may different ways to bring awareness to the impacts of global warming, including an artful approach that uses aesthetic appeal to lure the reader in.

This image series by Studio Lindfors is called Aqualta. The digitally altered images of New York City and Tokyo intoxicate the visual senses, using a flood of brilliant color to showcase scenes of flooding in these two great metropolitan hubs.

"Far from stoking fear about a coming catastrophe, both of these projects—Studio Lindfors and Squint Opera—offer a vision in which people, and the cities they live in, have learned to adapt to the overwhelming presence of water," BLDGBLOG says.

While applying themes of shock or devastation can help garner attention, they're ultimately themes people don't want to see -- the Aqualta images, on the other hand, are visual splendors, making them viral yet insightful; scrumptious eye candy, yet eye opening.
