New Work Leave it in the ground: we need a 5 year plan

This new work is based on comments by Christiana Figueres at a meeting last year at the Coal and Climate Summit in Warsaw. While it was reported she indicated coal could be "part of the solution" to climate change, she also indicated that fundamental parameters of transition from a coal economy included these listed below in the text of the work.

I want to use a typeface version for a collagraph print where the trilobites, crinoids, whatever, are in the collagraph matrix and the text is digitally printed on the paper.

A poster version of this work will be available soon.

Text: need a 5 year plan to transform transportation
a five year plan needed
we can transform
from a carbon based economy to a solar and geo-based
imagine our planetary embrace of a 5 year plan to implement geo- and solar based transportation system transform
from carbon based to solar and geo-based economic system
we need a five-year plan
what would it take to implement a 5 year plan? imagine our immediately transform
from carbon-based economy
transform our economy to solar and geo-based transportation
transform our economy to solar and geo-based transportation
we need a 5 year plan to transform our carbon based system
how can we transform to geo-and solar system?
we need a 5 year plan
from carbon based to geo- and solar based
