Hundreds Pose Nude on Swiss Glacier [Global Warming "awareness"]
San Francisco Chronicle ^ | 8/18/07 | AP

Posted on 08/18/2007 6:26:28 PM PDT by TFFKAMM

Hundreds of naked people formed a "living sculpture" on Switzerland's Aletsch glacier Saturday, hoping to raise awareness about climate change.

The photo shoot by Spencer Tunick, the New York artist famous for his pictures of nude gatherings in public settings worldwide, was designed to draw attention to the effects of global warming on Switzerland's shrinking glaciers.

"The melting of the glaciers is an indisputable sign of global climate change," said the environmental group Greenpeace, which co-organized the event...

Oh, that's just great.

In 150 years, some poor hikers are gonna be hiking along the terminal moraine and proclaiming "This place smells like ass!"

All that body heat must really be melting that glacier!

What are they trying to do?

Flood New York City? (sarcasm)

I've never yet seen any of these nudie groups that I wouldn't like better with their clothes on.

Not pretty to look at. You think they would agree not to pose nude if we give in on the global hotting thing?

I guess a bunch of dumschitz doing some naked sunbathing doesn’t really hurt anything. If it makes them feel good, go for it. We just have to be careful and watch that they don’t get into human sacrifice to the sun gods like their ancestors did long, long ago.

Wouldn’t be at the terminal moraine...would be on the ground moraine. :-)

But who knows...in 150 years, it might be advanced again. After all, it is longer now than it was at the time of Christ...or back in 1300 BC, when it was 1000 meters shorter than it is today.

If only they’d used hybrid chariots, they wouldn’t have had that problem, obviously!

I've heard of nudist colonies but this is a twist on them. No one ever bothered to tell them body heat really actually releases more CO2 and that they in fact ARE contributing to global warming through this kind of stunt. The LAST place I would dream of being naked is atop a glacier.

If Tunick offered to spray them with gallons of elephant semen, practically every one of his pathetic subjects worldwide would eagerly say "Yes, please do!"

The degradation must be incremental of course... Start out with pigs' blood, and make the opportunity seem rare and exciting...

Tunick knows exactly what he is doing. He is a narcissist and a sexual predator.

Did anyone see the surfers waiting for the Glacial crashes?

Surfs up.

This nude posing with out hair removal is just spreading bed bugs IMO.

Hope they are giving out free Castille’s Peppermint body wash.

I am never going to ever eat a fruit smoothie Glacial icee again.

Off to wash my vegetarian conservative rear in the shower.

I wonder if anyone has details on the temperature at this point on the glacier last year; a hundred years ago; a thousand years ago. Never mind. These are the same people who can’t predict the sun coming up tomorrow morning much les the weather at noon. They can predict horrible things in the next ______ years although the can’t remember what happened yesterday.

atniwar protests don’t get a good turn out for the love-ins afterwards anymore but naked protests over meat, fur, and global warming turn up all sorts of touchy-feely college girls who’ll readily get naked with strangers.
