NFTs and cryptocurrency as a whole are an ecological nightmare. Since its inception, the cryptocurrency Ethereum has produced over 96,200,000 tons of CO2 with a single Ethereum transaction adding 33.4kg of CO2 to that depressing score. 

A single NFT transaction will produce 48kg of CO2 per transaction. 

Meaning the sale of the photos of Cobain as NFTs will produce over 480kg of CO2 from just the original transaction alone. This isn't counting the carbon footprint of the minting process and the possible hundreds of other transactions that will take place after the original sale. 

We also stand against the immoral commodification of Kurt Cobain and other dearly departed celebrities. 

To go against the personal beliefs of Cobain and his anti-consumerist stance on art it should be common sense to NOT make him into just another consumer good, especially one as ecologically harmful as an NFT. 

It is also severely ironic that the profits from this sale will go towards the mental health charity, the JED Foundation. Even though climate change caused by CO2 emissions has been absolutely detrimental for the mental health of youths. 

We ask Jesse Frohman, Courtney Love Cobain, Frances Bean Cobain and the JED Foundation to immediately cease the minting and sale of the ‘The Last Session’ NFTs and instead find another way to raise money for the JED Foundation that isn't as ecologically harmful as the sale and minting of NFTs. 

We hope you make the correct decision.
