Animal Delegates at Final Day of UNFCCC Say That Progress is Stalled on Climate Change
 

DOHA, Qatar, Dec. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- On the final day of the 2012 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change - COP18 - in Doha, Qatar, little to no progress has been made according to Taiwanese artist and activist Vincent J.F Huang 'the nation of Tuvalu cannot wait for the international authorities to effect climate change policy'.

As featured in the official United Nation COP 18 news coverage, the avant-garde Taiwanese artist, and Tuvalu island party delegate, showed up to the conference with an eco-art project in order to draw attention to the current global climate change and rising sea levels which are threatening Tuvalu, a small island nation in the South Pacific Ocean, to be submerged by 2050 due to its low altitude location.

In an awkward and bare exhibition area stand two naked penguins that lose their feathers because of the heating weather under the impact of climate change and hold signs written 'Count Me In,' the slogan of Cop18. Behind the naked penguins, next to the huge monitor showing the latest discussions of the conferences, an installation of a suicide penguin delivers a strong message to urge delegates to come up with an effective protocol to reduce carbon emission. 

The interactive device 'Civilization and Its Side-effect' combines miniatures of an oil rig and an oil pistol with two animals that stand for the victims on the front line.  Audience is invited to trigger the oil pistol to activate the device which leads to hang the polar bear to death and to have the Tuvaluan marine turtle beheaded.  The accusation of these art installations implies that the suffering of the devoiced animals reflects the ignorant situation in Tuvalu -- a small island nation, leading a pure life without the convenience of modern technology or industrial pollution, is sarcastically to be the first nation to be submerged underwater.
