Global warming is affecting us all. It’s a huge abstract concept, a hot topic among environmental specialists and news outlets.

Just like American President Donald Trump, whose face is now carved in ice at Narinkkatori, just in front of the Kamppi shopping center in Helsinki.“We hope that the more conversation takes place around our monument and global warming, the better possibilities politicians have to make concrete fact-based decisions,” the creators of the Finnish NGO, Melting Ice ry, say in the pamphlet that was flapping in the wind in front of the sculpture on Wednesday morning.

In the future, depending on the funding, a Trump’s face similar to this could rise to the height of 35 meters to match the size of the presidents on Mount Rushmore.

According to the organization, the monument would be carved on the melting Arctic glacier, where the effect of global warming is said to be it’s most concrete. “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. We want to build the monument for all of us, so we can see how long the sculpture lasts before melting. Often people only believe something when they see it with their own eyes,” said Nicolas Prieto, chair of Melting Ice ry, in a bulletin.
