The sculpture Unbearable is displayed at Cité Universitaire in Paris
during the UN Climate summit COP21, December 2015.

Unbearable is a shared project between Danish Artist Jens Galschiøt and WWF. The eye-catching sculpture is a symbol of how human activity affects the global climate and remind the public of its
responsibility towards future generations.
The natural-size copper polar bear is impaled on an oil pipeline
in shape of a graph showing the cumulative global fossil fuel carbon
emissions. The graph shows the emissions since year 0. It continues
along the ground for 17 metres, then rises dramatically
around year 1850 as human consumption of fossil fuels like coal
and oil takes off. The graph end in year 2015 five metres above
ground impaling the polar bear.
