Artists have a gift in representing the beauty of the world. Should this necessarily become a contribution to saving the environment?

...soon there'll be left nothing from earth but one EH if those with more power control over threatening environmental events won't act responsively towards our nature and help us survive. Sad story.

I think it's good if it does, but it doesn't necessarily need to.

I try to capture moments with landscape and animal pictures to show some respect and also show places where buildings have been recaptured by plants and trees to show that nothing is forever.………

Personsally I use green energy, eat vegetarian (not vegan, but noboy is perfect), own no car, live in cooperative housing, support green socialist parties and so on. There´s a lot you can do if you just want it.

There are colliding interests in the world and you must raise your voice when you want yours to be considered. Environmental destruction and alienation from nature are no misunderstanding or accident; they follow political and cultural trends. As an artist you can support them, or you can show an alternative.

I don't think that anyone should be forced to do anything he/she doesn't like to do. Of course, saving our environment should be everyone's responsibility but not necessarily through art. You could donate to some environmental organisation or vote or something else. The possibilities are endless :)

I am aware that there are many different people in the world and each has his or her own beliefs, values and morals to many count. It all boils down to the artist and his or her own morals and values.

 As with most polls like this one, everything depends on the artist's beliefs, talents, or feelings. For example, I can't draw nature to save my life, and rarely step outside. So.Sweating a little...

An artist has to draw what they know.  Just like writers have to write about what they know.  While it would be great to see more artists create images to help contribute to protecting the enviroment, we cannot expect everyone to do it.

Let's stop saving the environment, and let's save ourselves instead! This planet has been destroyed many times, and has no feelings. We humans on the other hand are really in for it if we don't start being more preservative.
