German Climate Protestors Stage Melting Ice Hanging Stunt

German climate change activists staged an elaborate stunt at their variant of Friday’s global climate strike protests.

The teen activists outfitted themselves in a gallows of sorts, placing hangman’s nooses around their necks. They then proceeded to stand on ice blocks, creating an impression that they’d be lethally hung if the blocks should melt. It appears they put on the display as an intended viral commentary on the supposed melting of Earth’s ice caps.

The demonstration took place in Berlin, at the iconic Brandenburg gate.

The sheer sensationalism of the hanging stunt makes it hard to take the climate strike demonstrators seriously. There’s nothing wrong with having a debate about carbon emissions, their impact on Earth’s polar ice caps, and what’s necessary in order to make human society more environmentally friendly, but the German stunt appears intent to go viral on social media more than anything.
