600 strip naked on glacier in global warming protest

"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."

Greenpeace and Spencer Tunick photographed 600 naked people on on the Aletsch Glacier, Switzerland. They were "bodily cry(ing) out for help against a planetary emergency: global warming."

A show of genitals can do nothing to stop the selfishness in man. The selfish men see it and it further compounds their belief in the stupidity of earth lovers. Perhaps some insight into how earthquakes are really caused might illuminate the lost though. Appealing to peoples self interest and real estate might not be the holiest answer by god it is the most fun though.
