Heat in the Vineyards - French Go Naked

Image by Daylife       

On October 3, 2009 more than 700 French men and women took it all off in a vineyard in Burgundy to draw attention to how global warming will effect the French wine industry.  The event was organized by Greenpeace along with artist Spencer Tunick in a lead up to the December U.N.'s Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen.

In a open letter to the leaders at the event Greenpeace writes:

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 won't do.

Many claim that vineyards around the world are experiencing changes due to global warming. Future predictions could be dire for some of the most celebrated vineyards. Marginal properties may decline and disappear. Will new regions emerge? Will Canadian wine develop cult like status, and Napa Valley become the home of good boxed blends? Stay tuned, get involved and drink up.


Since 1992, artist Spencer Tunick has staged more than 75 mass nude installations all over the world. His collective landscapes always question humankind's relationship with its environment. To see his provocative collections visit Spencer Tunick's website.
