Friday, November 28th:
The £12m defences of the most heavily guarded power station in Britain have been breached by a single person who, under the eyes of CCTV cameras, climbed two three-metre (10ft) razor-wired, electrified security fences, walked into the station and crashed a giant 500MW turbine before leaving a calling card reading “no new coal”. He walked out the same way and hopped back over the fence.
From guardian.co.uk. For four hours, the UK’s carbon footprint went down by 2%. (Of course, this happened by taking out a huge chunk of the electricity in the grid.)
The UK has seen a lot of these sorts of protests in the past year. Well, not these sorts, but you know, civil-disobedience style ones. Let’s see where this goes, yeah?
