An unique mural will now adore the boundary wall of the British High Commission in New Delhi to create awareness on climate change among the denizens.

The mural, unveiled today by Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit and British High Commissioner Sir Richard Stagg, calls for global action on climate change ahead of the UN conference on the issue in Copenhagen later this year.

"This is a very aesthetic painting (wall mural) of the ugly and beautiful. Now, people have to chose between the two. But, I hope people will go for the second one (beautiful)," Dikshit told reporters.

She also asked people not to use plastic as "Mother Earth does not absorb it" and it is a major threat to the climate.
Besides, she appealed to media and students to play an active part in spreading awareness about the climate change.

The wall mural is an attempt to create awareness about climate change and the issue has to be faced collectively as "it is a threat to humanity today", Stagg said.

"One side of the mural is a grim reminder of the clear and present danger we all face due to rising greenhouse gases, the other shows the way forward for a sustainable future driven by low carbon growth. The choice is ours," he added.
