In connection with the international climate meeting in Copenhagen, December 7-18, 2009, the Danish artist Jens Galschiot (AIDOH – Art In Defence Of Humanism) received permission to temporarily install a sculpture in the water about 5 m from the famous Little Mermaid. It is roughly the same size and is also cast in bronze. It depicts a very fat white woman sitting on the shoulders of a very thin African man, and obviously refers to the rich countries of the world "feeding" off the poor countries. The title of the piece is The Survival of the Fattest .
Said Americans for Limited Government president Bill Wilson of the statue, "This statue is an obscene indictment of all in Western Civilization who for centuries have worked long and hard to produce the greatest progress the world has known. Instead of being rightly depicted as generous benefactors whose inventions and innovations have moved mankind from the caves to mountaintops, they are depicted as fat, ugly oppressors riding the back of those who, in reality, they have saved by the tens of millions the world over. Barack Obama should demand that the statue be promptly removed — or openly admit it is a symbol of all that he and the global warming frauds actually believe."
