600 nude on glacier to protest global warming

Aletsch Glacier, Switzerland :
Living sculpture:
Hundreds of naked volunteers express the vulnerability of
glaciers and human life in a warming world.

Human beings in danger will abandon social niceties, etiquette, and the norms of
acceptable behaviour to raise an alarm any way they can when lives are in
danger. Today, six hundred people shed their clothes on a glacier in the Swiss
Alps to bodily cry out for help against a planetary emergency: global warming.

The nude volunteers posed naked with "installation" artist
Spencer Tunick on the Aletsch Glacier.
Without clothes, the human body is vulnerable, exposed, its life or death at the
whim of the elements. Global warming is stripping away our glaciers and leaving
our entire planet vulnerable to extreme weather, floods, sea-level rise, global
decreases in carrying capacity and agricultural production, fresh water
shortages, disease and mass human dislocations.

If global warming continues at its current rate, most glaciers in Switzerland will
completely disappear by 2080, leaving nothing but valleys and slopes strewn with
rock debris. Over the last 150 years, alpine glaciers have reduced in size by
approximately one third of their surface and half of their mass, and this melting is
accelerating. The Aletsch Glacier retreated 115 meters (377 feet) in a single year
from 2005 to 2006.

Climate change now requires fast and courageous political decisions to radically
cut green-house gas emissions and stabilise global warming. Governments
around the world must know that the people they represent expect and demand
them to take action.

Known around the world for his installations, Spencer Tunick wants people to
know that global climate change is not an abstract issue, but a hazardous threat
which affects us all.
