Will melting ice children get leaders caring about our melting glaciers? Today, Greenpeace put ice sculptures of 100 children at the Temple of Earth in Beijing, “symbolizing the disappearing future of the more than 1 billion people in Asia who are threatened with water shortages by the changing climate” — plus an ice sculpture in the form of the number “100” on a world map in New Delhi to show “the world washed away” by glacial melts.
The sculptures in China were made from glacial melt water from the source of Yangtze, Yellow and Ganges rivers — and judging from the photos, didn’t last too long under the sun. Save the glaciers from a similar fate by joining up with other TckTckTck activists. Time’s running out!
TckTckTck’s a project of the Global Campaign for Climate Action, an initiative that brings together a number of national and global organizations to mobilize people toward “rapid action to save the planet from dangerous levels of climate change.”
