Can artists save the world?

The environment is this year's big theme across the arts. Here's how Britain's greenest cultural avengers plan to save the world.

There's a lot going on. The question is: can any of this art do any good? When an actor or a musician lectures us about global warming, our first instinct is cynicism: after all, is it possible to maintain both a private jet and a green conscience? The satirical website The Onion neatly nailed this contradiction, with the headline: "Alec Baldwin signs two-year deal to care about the environment."
