Sustain' Magazine;2007, Vol. 8 Issue 5, p8
The article focuses on several people who have shed their clothes in the Swiss Alps to boldly cry out for help against global warming. More than 600 nude volunteers posed for renowned U.S. naked installation artist Spencer Tunick on the Aletsch Glacier. Tunick, who is known around the world for his installations, wants people to know that global climate change is not an abstract issue, but a hazardous threat which affects every individual. He emphasized that climate change needs fast political decisions to cut greenhouse gas emissions and stabilise global warming.
