Environmentalists will sculpt Trump's face on a glacier to watch it melt and demonstrate climate change

To show that climate change is already happening, Finnish environmentalists will carve Donald Trump's face on an Arctic ice mass of more than 35 meters and wait to see it melt.

Global warming is one of the hottest topics of today according to the Melting Ice association and there are still people like the president of the USA who doubt it.

"We want to build the monument for all of us, so that we can see how long the sculpture lasts before melting," says the president of the NGO, Nicolás Prieto, regretting that "people only believe something when they see it with their own eyes." .

This “scientific art project”, as activists call it, began when three young people working in the field of creativity wanted to act to really show that climate change exists and is happening.

“Our starting point was to create something concrete, something that people can see and something that makes climate change visual. In general, we believe that a DIY attitude attracts people ”, summarizes Prieto.

The project has not yet started and is in the phase of seeking financing for 400,000 euros through various crowfunding platforms, which are available on the project website: http://www.projecttrumpmore.com

The project will be carried out by a world leading team of ice sculptors from Finland and Mongolia and its construction is estimated to take four weeks. The entire process will be documented and broadcast live.

“This project is a great challenge and we cannot do this without help. We are now asking everyone to join this movement. It can be done by talking, liking, sharing, financing, etc. All possible help is more than welcome ”, they point out from the organization.
