Photo of the Day: Climate Change Activism

Click image for larger version

Powerful way to make a point. Today three Greenpeace climbers hung a banner on the face of Mount Rushmore to issue a challenge to President Obama. "America honors leaders, not politicians: Stop Global Warming.” At least 11 arrests have been made in order to stop global warming. The action is part of a global day of action staged by Greenpeace to urge world leaders, who are currently attending a G8 meeting in L’Aquila, Italy, to take the actions necessary to avert runaway climate change. Visit the Greenpeace website for more info, photos and a video.
