We’re Saved: Spain Trots Out “Drowning Girl” Sculpture

We’re still on the spreading awareness and scaremongering, rather than Warmists practicing what they preach

A dramatic new sculpture of a drowning girl in a Spanish river hints at a dark future. It’s titled, ‘Tomorrow.’

On Spain’s northern coast, residents awoke to a shocking sight last week. The head of a young girl was nearly submerged in Bilbao’s Nervion River as the water rose, covering her mouth, nose, and eyes.

The fiberglass sculpture is the work of Mexican hyperrealist artist Ruben Orozco Loza. It’s titled “Bihar,” meaning “Tomorrow” in Basque, the language spoken in the region.

“At first it gave me a feeling of stress, when more of the face was out of the water, but now to me she communicates sadness, a lot of sadness,” Triana Gil, a visitor viewing the sculpture, told Reuters on Tuesday. “She doesn’t even look worried, it’s as if she is letting herself drown.”

Loza does not explicitly say that the “Bihar” refers to climate change — in an email to Insider, he described the piece as a reflection on the decisions we make for future generations more broadly. But it’s hard not to make the connection. The latest report from the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change found that from 1901 to 2018, the world’s seas rose by half a foot on average, and the annual rate of sea-level rise nearly tripled.

If the seas rose half a foot, that is on the lower end of average for the Holocene era, when it should be double to triple that during a warm period.

It took Loza three months to complete the artwork, which he designed and crafted in Mexico with the help of his wife. He then flew it to Bilbao in eight parts, where it was later assembled and brought to the river by boat. A steel structure keeps the 3.5-ton girl submerged, Loza explained.

Hmm, they flew it on a fossil fueled jet?

The survey, which was released by the journal Nature this month but has not yet been peer reviewed, also found that 57% of respondents described climate change as making them feel “powerless.” Another 30% said it made them feel “indifferent.” That’s where Loza’s piece might come in.

“Art leaves no one indifferent. That’s its function,” he said.

You know what’s not indifferent? Data. The closest station to Bilboa, which is on the northern part of Spain at it’s most eastern point, is Santander

La Coruna, also on the north coast of Spain, is similar. Vigo, way down but still on the Atlantic, is similar. All the stations in the Mediterranean are similar. Average rise, no acceleration. So, where does the drowning come into play? Oh, right, doomsday cult.

    Would love to hear their explanation of how the rate of sea level rise tripled.

    Media articles are full of such claims, and claims of “acceleration”, and claims of increased flood damage, etc.
    And then I pull up the data and say “No sir, I don’t see it”.
