A sculptor in India is using sand to raise awareness about global warming.

One of India's top sand artists made an idol of a goddess out of sand using 50 tons of sand.

The goddess has the world in her mouth and a demon attacking the earth. The artist says the goddess is removing global warming while fighting away the demon.

Scientists say India will soon overtake Russia to become the world's third largest carbon emitter.
