Zoo Art Fair | The Wasteland @ The Royal Academy

17 - 20 October 2008

World faced with growing instability, violence: think tank / Mofaz: Iran is the root of all evil, threat to world peace / Swallowed by sand: China`s billion-dollar battle against desertification / Banks count the cost of the credit crunch / Nature Declares War with Wind and Water / Pensioner cuts fuel bills with medieval stove / Africa: The Next Victim in Our Quest for Cheap Oil / Chilling image of Liverpool flooded by rising seas / Russian arms sales to set new record / Bali bombers challenge execution, want beheading / Worldwide explosion of jellyfish / Extreme weather brewing on horizon

…On Margate Sands / I can connect / Nothing with nothing...
