ABSTRACT
The article focuses on how to deal with the climate change in Great Britain. Nature writer Bill McKibben said that what the warming world needs is art. In one of his painting, Damien Hirst has had a go at representing the carbon dioxide by-product of lifestyles. To illustrate carbon dioxide, Hirst made the intangible physical in the form of empty gas cylinders, corresponding in volume to his own annual carbon emissions.

    The ratio of warming to cumulative emissions of carbon dioxide has been shown to be approximately independent of time and emissions scenarios and directly relates emissions to temperature. It is therefore a potentially important tool for climate mitigation policy. The transient climate response...
