The stunt aims to show the impact of climate change by live streaming the sculpture melting.

A climate change group is raising half a million dollars with the goal of carving President Donald Trump’s face into an arctic iceberg.

The Finnish group Melting Ice is spearheading the initiative with the intention of carving a 115-foot ice sculpture of Mr Trump’s face, and have dubbed the effort “Project Trumpmore”.

They hope that they will be able to illustrate the dangers of climate change by watching to see how long the sculpture takes to melt.

“Global warming is one of the most important issues and topics of today, There are still people who ponder whether it’s a real issue,” Nicolas Prieto, the chairman of the group, said in as statement on the association’s website.

The president has acted accordingly during his time in the Oval Office as well. He has appointed a head of the Environmental Protection Agency who had previously sued that same agency over greenhouse gas emissions guidelines. He has also overseen a government that is poised to approve offshore drilling in areas that had previously been off limits.

If “Project Trumpmore” raises enough money, the group says that they will instal a live stream of the sculpture as it melts.

Mr Trump has previously mused about being added to Mount Rushmore — the rock sculpture carved into the side of a mountain in South Dakota featuring several prominent American presidents. He even said during a rally in Ohio last year that he thinks there’s a possibility he could be added.
