As talk hots up in Copenhagen for the UN's COP-15 gabfest, a number of interesting animations are appearing that illustrate the way climate change has altered our perception of human industrial activity. A month ago, Canadian artists Dale Hayward adn Silvie Trouve posted a video dubbed 'H2Oil' on Vimeo showing how the Alberta tar sands project is likely to play out as reserves of oil dwindle globally.
Hayward says in comments that the project took five months, this year, and they worked on a very low budget.
H2Oil is also the name of a documentary shot in Canada about the evils of the oil industry. Parts of Canada are major centres of oil development.
