Artist Seeks Subjects for Nude Shoot on Swiss Glacier
Wednesday, July 18, 2007

ZURICH, Switzerland — Wanted: volunteers willing to take their clothes off and have their picture taken on a freezing cold Alpine glacier.

The appeal by New York artist Spencer Tunick, famous for taking pictures of thousands of naked people in public settings worldwide, is intended for a photo shoot to highlight the effects of climate change on Switzerland’s shrinking glaciers, environmental group Greenpeace said on its Web site Wednesday.

I’m simply appalled at the increasing number of people taking advantage of our poor, dying planet.

Greenpeace said if global warming continues at its current pace, most Swiss glaciers will disappear by 2080.

When Greenpeace speaks…….do people really listen? Besides, the author here says it’s going to be FREEZING COLD!

The photo-shoot, which follows Tunick’s previous shoots in London, Mexico City and Amsterdam, will take place in August at an undisclosed location in Switzerland.

Oh sure…..August!

Prospective candidates from further afield will have to start making travel arrangements now. “We aim to make this a climate-friendly event, so please come by public transport and don’t fly,” Greenpeace said.

Isn’t flying considered “public transport”, and if there’s a plane going there anyway….

I think you did not really understand whats going on our planet. If you think that flying is public transport and that a plane is going anyway I have to say: You are wrong. A Plane is going there only if people want to fly. And flying is one of the most CO2 producing activity you ever can do.
As there are a lot of trains in Europe people from neigbouring countries can easy participate without harm the environemt.

John...no one coming to my site will get a link to sign up for Greenpeace or anything related to Greenpeace so I removed that link from your comment.

I would add that while you state flying is one of the most CO2 producing activities you can ever do, you may want to talk to all the "green" Hollywood (Leo) and Political (Algore) hypocrites out there who fly more in a week than most normal people will in a life time.

John, you ass. Do you mean to tell me that Air Canada, American Airlines, Continental, Midwest, Northern Air, United and US Airways are NOT public transport?

And, as a kicker, can you tell me how Mr. Gore arrived to the Live Earth concerts? Tell me also, how all of the concert-goers as well as the performers arrived?

The "plane going there anyway" was a reference to Arianna Huffington, a supposed "green" politician.

Take your "Do as I say, not as I do" bullshit somewhere else.

Well, whatever glacier they pick they should probably not go to the Mont Blanc one. It's happily unaware of politics so it refuses to shrink...

Chris said:

Glacier? I hardly even know her!

Can ya imagine the "shrinkage"?

Vinnie said:

I have been duly scooped.

Yeah, John, those trains have no "carbon footprint" whatsoever.
