Artist's climate change murals paint dark future for planet

WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) " An artist's dark interpretations of what climate change might do to the Earth if left unchecked are on display at Clark University.

Erica Daborn tells the Telegram & Gazette of Worcester (http://bit.ly/2cGnFEX ) that she hopes her works will help climate change doubters and deniers reconsider evidence that the planet is warming.

Daborn's exhibition at the university's Traina Center for the Arts includes six large murals. One depicts the funeral for the world's last elephant. Another shows people struggling to get around as seas rise, submerging what once was dry land.

The British-born Daborn says she began the project in 2010, when there was little governmental action to address rising greenhouse gas emissions and other threats.

Her murals are on display through Nov. 17.
