Baring All for the Planet

Per CNN, NY artist Spencer Tunick, famous for photographing naked people in public settings around the world, is calling for volunteers who will strip to their birthday suits and stand on a freezing cold Alpine glacier in Switzerland next month. The above picture was previously shot in Mexico City.
The point to the exercise in gettin' nekkid on a humungo block of ice is to draw attention to global warming. Unless measures are taken, most Swiss glaciers will melt away by the year 2080.
Given how freaking hot it's been here this month, I don't doubt the glaciers' fate. Our family does a lot of little things to try to conserve energy. We also recycle where we can, etc. But I know there's a lot more we could be doing to help the planetary distress.
Would you, um, bare all for something you believed in? I think I might - if I could only lose 20 pounds. LOL.
