Climate activists raising money to carve Trump's face into glacier

Project Trumpmore

A Finnish climate group is raising $500,000 to carve a 115-foot ice sculpture of US President Donald Trump's face into an arctic glacier endangered by global warming.

The group aims to raise €400,000 to fund the carving in the likeness of the USA presidents depicted on Mount Rushmore in South Dakota.

They aim to sculpt Donald Trump's face in ice "to end the debate on climate change". If the group achieves its funding goal, a team of world-leading Finnish and Mongolian ice sculptors will be put to work carving the president's coiffed head. "Estimated building will take four weeks and the process will be documented and broadcast via a live feed", the group said. Since rising disquietingly in American public life from NY real-estate hustler and reality TV star to the White House, Trump has repeatedly rejected the existence of man-made climate change, calling it, without evidence, a "hoax" devised by China as a broadside to American manufacturing. Last year, he withdrew the US out of the 2015 Paris Agreement, a deal signed by almost 200 countries that focused at reducing carbon emissions, slowing rising global temperatures and helping countries deal with the effects of climate change.

The glacial art project, spearheaded by the Finland-based group Melting Ice, has been dubbed "Project Trumpmore". He posted the tweet during a period of record-breaking low temperatures across the eastern United States during winter 2017.

We've said that it's not going to happen and it's not going to happen. And so Zidane's team will be even more determined to ruin the party.

If it is successful in drumming up the funds, the group says it will install a camera at the site to livestream the sculpture as it eventually dissolves. The monument will be carved on the melting Arctic glacier, where the effect of global warming is said to be its most concrete.Help us find a location.

He also said, "This project is a huge challenge and we can't do this without help".

In a press release, Melting Ice chairman Nicolas Prieto said, "Global warming is one of the most important issues and topics of today".

In January, Trump said the U.S. could "conceivably" return to the Paris climate accord if an agreement treated the country more fairly.
