Upcoming Global Warming Summit Fuels Artistic Creativity

COP15, Copenhagen, climate conferenceCOPENHAGEN — Starting Monday and through Dec. 18, scientists and world leaders from over 190 countries will meet in the Danish capital  of Copenhagen to negotiate a way to curb greenhouse gas emissions.

The upcoming COP15 United Nations summit is already inspiring artists, who are responding by creating pieces that draw attention to the cause and make statements about global warming.

The following video provides a glimpse at some of the ways in which artists are preparing their works for the COP15 climate conference:
