Gorgeous women in bikinis do not usually bring to mind the image of the arctic, but that's exactly what Canadian magazine Up Here wanted you to think about when it released its first ever swimsuit edition:
The 26-year-old northern Canadian magazine, Up Here, has published its first swimsuit issue to draw attention to climate change.
Its latest edition, out this week, features 10 swimsuit-clad women posing in threatened northern landscapes such as burnt-out forests and melting icescapes.
"When you want to get attention in a room full of people talking, you tend to yell," writes Tim Querengesser on Up Here's blog. "So, when we decided to dedicate an entire issue to climate change in the North...we knew we'd have to yell to be heard above the already deafening howl."
