LOS ANGELES, Feb. 1 (UPI) -- An international coalition of entertainers and scientists is using American rock icon Jim Morrison in its fight against global warming.

Morrison's "Woman in the Window," a previously unreleased poem written by the late Doors front man has been set to music to publicize the Global Cool campaign aimed at reducing carbon emissions world wide, the organization said.

With the motto "One by One, Ton by Ton," Global Cool kicked off Tuesday simultaneously in Los Angeles and London, directing its message to work individually to reduce carbon emissions by 10 billion tons in 10 years.

Global Cool is using Webcasts, mobile messaging, live concerts, festivals and other platforms to help educate people on how they as individuals can help reduce emissions.

The recording, describing an angel warning humanity about its actions, will be released in April by Morrison's estate. It was produced by Perry Farrell, formerly with Jane's Addition.
