In order to try and change the American president’s opinion on global warming, a Finnish NGO have decided to launch Project Trumpmore. It plans to carve the head of Donald Trump into an iceberg, in order to film it as it melts, and publish the footage.
The Finnish NGO Melting Ice want to send a message to Donald Trump, and in a general way to all of the climate skeptics in the world. This is what led to the birth of Project Trumpmore, which aims to sculpt the American president’s face into an iceberg.
In a press release on the 26th April 2018, Melting Ice confirm that they are looking to collect a half a million dollars in order to finance the sculpture, and the equipment necessary for live transmission of the melting of the iceberg in question. They start their appeal with a veribable challenge to Trump, asking whether it will “melt or last a thousand years?”
Rather than having his face carved into the rock in Mount Rushmore (like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln), Donald Trump will have his statue in ice! Obviously, the sculpture would be temporary, which is exactly the effect the Finnish NGO are looking for.
“There are still people who ponder whether it’s a real issue. We want to build the monument for all of us, so we can see how long the sculpture lasts before melting. Often people only believe something when they see it with their own eyes”, explains Nicolas Prieto, the chairman of Melting Ice.
Project Trumpmore has just been launched, although the NGO are still looking for an iceberg measuring 35 meters high, which could accommodate the sculpture. A crowd funding campaign is also in the process of being set up, and should soon be up and running.
As can been seen in the video below, the launch of the project took place in Helsinki (Finland) on the 16th April 2018, and presented a scaled down model of the ice statue in the image of the American president:
