    You just can't make this stuff up.

    Hundreds get naked on glacier to expose climate change

    Nearly 600 volunteers stripped before the camera on a melting Swiss glacier high in the Alps on Saturday as part of a publicity campaign to expose the impact of climate change.

    The eco-conscious volunteers turned up under blue skies near the foot of the Aletsch glacier, a protected UNESCO World Heritage site.

    Environmental group Greenpeace commissioned the photo shoot from world renowned photographer Spencer Tunick.

    "Their numbers are close to 600," Nicolas de Roten of Greenpeace Switzerland told AFP. "It's relatively chilly but that doesn't seem to be disturbing them."

    The campaign is aimed at drawing attention to melting Alpine glaciers, one clear sign of global warming and of man-made climate change, according to the group.

    Good one.

    Only bombarded 10 times a day.

    Fill in the blank;

    .......must be linked to global warming

    My underwear is extra itchy, must be linked to globl warming

    ....actually, the itchiness is due to extra phosphate in the laundry detergent...scientists concerned that increased level of phosphates linked to global warming. :wink:

    .............That would be so outrageously funny if only it wasnt actually the gist of current thinking.

    :-D Scientists are concerned about the massive paycheck they will get by linking their research to global warming, more like.


    Ah well, we are only human!

    " The environmental movement maintains that science and technology cannot be relied upon to build a safe atomic power plant, to produce a pesticide that is safe, or even bake a loaf of bread that is safe, if that loaf of bread contains chemical preservatives. When it comes to global warming, however, it turns out that there is one area in which the environmental movement displays the most breathtaking confidence in the reliability of science, an area in which, until recently, no one--even the staunchest supporters of science and technology--had ever thought to assert very much confidence at all. The one thing, the environmental movement holds, that science and technology can do so well that we are entitled to have unlimited confidence in them, is FORECAST THE WEATHER!--for the next one hundred years..."

    ...........So true man.

    If the green movement didnt have such an irrational fear of things they dont understand , we could have nuclear plants in place of most fossil fuel plants by now.

    Fact: More people died in chernobyl from worrying about the hype than the meltdown itself.

    Fact: There is more ionizing radiation released from naturally occurring heavy element convecting zones than from most nuclear fuel dumps. People live on the former.
