Naked message: global warming could mean an end to the days of wine... and rosés.

Naked message: global warming could mean an end to the days of wine... and rosés.

700 volunteers posed nude in a French vineyard to send a message about climate change. This human art installation in the South of Burgundy was created by artist Spencer Tunick – to warn about the dangers of global warming.

Here’s an open letter to world leaders with a naked truth about climate change: their efforts so far have barely made a difference.
Dear Obama, Merkel, Jintao, Lula, Sarkozy, Zapatero, Tusk etc.
As you will have no doubt witnessed this year – tens of thousands of people are willing to go to some extraordinary lengths for climate action. Many are even willing to take their clothes off!
700 people have stripped naked in a vineyard to warn the world of the effects climate change will have on French wine. And a while ago, hundreds of others were prepared to pose nude on a glacier in Switzerland.
Given the lengths to which we’re all willing to go to call for action on this issue, do you think you could make some time in your busy calendar this December to show up in Copenhagen?
To date, only Gordon Brown (UK), Donald Tusk (Poland) and Jan Peter Balkenende (the Netherlands) have said they will attend.
We’re not asking you to take your clothes off in Copenhagen – but we do expect you to be there – to sign a fair, ambitious and binding deal to save the future of our planet. A half-decent climate treaty simply wont do.

Thank you,
