A Climate Group Wants to Carve Trump's Face on an Arctic Iceberg

A climate change group is attempting to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars to fund its mission to carve the face of US President Donald Trump into an iceberg.

Project Trumpmore criticises Trump's stance on climate change, highlighting a December 2017 tweet where he said the east coast of the United States "could use a little bit of that good old Global Warming".

"There are still people who ponder whether it's a real issue", the Melting Ice Association said in a press release.

"We want to build the monument for all of us so we can see how long the sculpture lasts before melting".

Instead of "filling the world with fake news and alternative facts", the Trumpmore Project will give people a way to view climate change with their own eyes.

Inspired by the Mount Rushmore National Memorial, which features the profiles of four United States presidents, the project has been dubbed Project Trumpmore. We are now asking everybody to join this movement.

The group aims to raise €400,000 to fund the carving in the likeness of the U.S. presidents depicted on Mount Rushmore in South Dakota. "All possible help is more than welcome", the organization notes.

But the billionaire President's mush will not have its usual orange hue because the 115-foot sculpture will be carved into an iceberg as a warning against climate change. In 2012, he infamously stated that the phenomenon is a hoax created by the Chinese to hurt America's manufacturing economy.

Trump has frequently questioned global warming, suggesting last year that it was not real because the of the cold weather the U.S. was experiencing in the run up to New Year's Eve.

Trump's flippant remarks about the matter, along with his climate-change denier appointee Scott Pruitt heading the Environmental Protection Agency, shows why the environmentalists felt the need to do something so outlandish to draw the attention of authorities.

"We know humans have most flourished during times of warming trends".

"I think there's assumptions made that because the climate is warming, that that necessarily is a bad thing".
