  A climate change group is raising half a million dollars with the goal of
carving President Donald Trump's face into an arctic iceberg.
          一个气候变化小组正在募集50万美元,准备在北极冰山上雕刻总统唐纳德·特朗普的脸。
          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”.
          芬兰小组“融化的冰”正在领导一个雕刻特朗普脸的115英尺冰雕的倡议,其被称为“更特朗普计划”。
          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.
          他们希望可以通过观察雕塑融化所花费的时间,说明气候变化的危险。
          “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.
          “全球变暖是当今社会最重要的议题之一。仍然有人在质疑这是否是现实问题,”组织主席尼古拉斯·普列托在协会网站的一项声明中说道。
          “We want to build the monument for all of us, so we can see how long the
sculpture lasts before melting,” the statement reads. “Often people only believe
something when they see it with their own eyes.”
          “我们想要为我们所有人修建这座纪念碑,因此可以见证雕塑可以存在多久才融化,”声明中写道。“人们常常只有亲眼所见才会相信。”
          Mr Trump has previously pondered whether climate change exists, and has at
times even said that parts of the world would benefit from the effects. At other
times he has claimed that climate change was “created by and for the Chinese in
order to make US manufacturing non-competitive”.
          特朗普曾质疑过气候变化是否存在,有时甚至还说过世界许多地区会受益于此。在其它时候他还声称,全球变化是“中国为了让美国制造业变得没有竞争力而捏造出来的”。
          If “Project Trumpmore” raises enough money, the group says that they will
instal a live stream of the sculpture as it melts.
          如果“更特朗普计划”募集到足够的资金,这个组织说他们会直播雕塑的融化过程。
