Spanning diversity

To find a global consensus, conversations on climate need to span diverse groups and surmount linguistic and cultural barriers.

Campaigns that use numbers are one option : "Slogans can mean someting different in Johannesburg and Delhi and Vancouver, but numbers remain reassuringly the same," says Bill McKibben, author of the End of Nature (Randon House, 1989).

He leads the campaign 350.org, which advocates decreasing atmospheric CO2 to 350 parts per million.

On 24 October, his group will seek media attention by staging visual stunts that represent the number 350 through group performances, including choreographed mountain climbing and skydiving.

"Physis and chemistry are poor begotiators ― they don't haggle or compromise," reflects McKibben.

Tied to her fikm the Age of Stupid, Armstrong also leads a numberbased campaign : '10:10' calls for a reduction in UK carbon emissions by 10% in 2010.

Conveying the campaign message

The arts and advertising can galvanise public and political will in tackling global warming.

But sheared concern for human health is a better motivator than polar bears,finds Sabjay Khanna



This August at Beijing's Temple of Earth an installation of 100 ice sculpturs of children melted in the heat.

It repressented the billion lives that will be lost in Asia because of water shortages coused by climate change.

The artwork ― commissioned by Greenpeace to launch the TckTckTck campaign for 'bold climate action' ― is one of many cultural events aiming to sway political negotiators in the lead-up to the United Nations Climate Changr Conference (COP15) in Copenhagen in December.
