A Can of Soup

What does the climate crisis, a Van Gogh painting, and a can of tomato soup have in common? Except for being the opening to a funny joke we’ve never heard – not much. That is, until a couple of days ago, when the organization Just Stop Oil organized a protest unlike anything you’ve probably ever… Continue reading A Can of Soup

Three Cheers for Three Years

Three years ago, I (Sammy here, hello) set out to create one pixel design a day to pair with a fact about the planet.

As Pixel Planet Today is almost completely social media-based, we know full well… Continue reading We hid our like counts – you should too

Flooding in Nebraska: A Case of Climate Change

Climate change is a vast issue, with consequences fanning out to every corner of our world. Yes, rising sea levels will be a massive problem to tackle, but as will changing bird migrations, decreases in glacier accumulation, and extinctions of whole ecosystems. Huge issues like the amount of plankton that are able to survive in… Continue reading Flooding in Nebraska: A Case of Climate Change

We’re Open!

After a much-longer-than-anticipated hiatus, I’m so so happy to finally announce that we’re back! I can’t lie, it’s been a really hard few weeks, but I’m so excited to be getting back to the project that helped me find my calling. I was initially planning on getting back into daily posts today, but instead, I… Continue reading We’re Open!
