Outlines of a giant human penis and a large polar bear were the iconographic symbols that accompanied the words, ‘Oi, Trump — Climate Change Is Real,’ in a message that was mowed into large fields near the Stansted Airport in the United Kingdom with the hopes that U.S. President Donald Trump would see it during his landing on Monday morning.
With Trump’s arrival generating plans for massive street protests, the provocative greeting—similar to the giant ‘Baby Trump’ blimp which has become so popular in recent years—is additional evidence of how reviled and little-respected the president is among many in Britain.

The aerial greeting is the work of Ollie Nancarrow, an 18-year-old Bishop’s Stortford High student, who spent the entire weekend creating a stiff message about climate change for Donald Trump in the hope of catching the president’s eye aboard Air Force One as it passes by above the property on Monday morning.
Nancarrow, an online upcycling entrepreneur, kept himself busy throughout much of Saturday and Sunday maneuvering a ride-on mower through the the grounds of his family home just outside Hatfield Heath, Essex, with the complete, unwavering approval of his mother and stepfather Vanessa and David Ambler.
Nancarrow – who is taking his A Levels at school in art, product design, and business studies – crafted an enormous cock and balls in the lawn alongside the greeting “Oi Trump.”
This is followed by the words “Climate Change is Real” and accompanied by a polar bear.
The teenager’s mother, Vanessa Ambler, expressed great pride and enthusiasm over her son’s efforts: “Ollie is an artist and quite passionate about the environment. Living under the flight path he decided to use the garden as a canvas and make a peaceful protest as Trump goes over.
“I am really proud of Ollie. He is really passionate about what he does: he is not just doing it for the publicity, it is part of his way of life.”
Mrs Ambler said the drawings had been created “freehand,” with Ollie unable to view an evaluate his work until a photo was snapped from above using a drone.
“Donald Trump and his denial of climate change are not welcome and I want him to be fully aware of that when he flies into Stansted.”
He is hoping that his weekend’s work will capture the president’s attention aboard Air Force One as the aircraft flies into Stansted Airport for the start of his state visit. It is expected to land at around 9am Monday.
The president did land on Monday morning as scheduled, though it remains uncertain as of this writing whether or not Trump witnessed the message.
Massive protests in London are expected for Tuesday as Downing Street announced Theresa May would raise the issue of climate change with President Trump during his state visit.
The president has previously accused climate change experts of having a “political agenda”.
