Simon The Hippo
Suzanne has a magic snap and purse that can do most anything – except solve the climate crisis!
Bob is a climate skeptic and overall ne’er-do-well. Selfish is his middle name but there are glimmers of hope.
You know the Earth but did you know the climate’s carbon-safe level is 350 parts per million and that it’s now around 415 ppm?
Peep has an insatiable curiousity and loves learning and taking action for causes – the climate being numero 1!
Simon is an everyman and the most sensible of the gang. He wants to do the right thing and also have fun!
The Cool The Climate Project and its parent company, Hippo Works, are privileged to work with or have worked with the following companies and non-profits:
A recent UC Berkeley graduate, Sophia helps with design and development and is passionate about climate justice. She’s working to advance the issue through managing communications for the Ojai Extinction Rebellion chapter, writing tweets for This Is Zero Hour, and launching the mobile app Conscious Coffee. Alongside the Cool the Climate animals, Sophia’s learning more everyday about how to be a better friend to the environment.
Denis received a BA and MA in English Literature from Georgetown and Oxford and got his start in cartooning when he drew a hippo on a best-selling college t-shirt. The tee inspired him to create Hippo Works, a company where the animals of Cool The Climate were born and through which Denis is thrilled to have drawn cartoons for National Geographic Kids, Paramount Vantage, and most recently Unicef, Project Everyone, and PCI Media which present the Cool The Climate! movie. To make up for lost time, Denis founded cooltheclimate.com as a project devoted to helping solve the crisis.
