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?
One thought on “Anti-Warming Ninja Strikes Coal Plant”
And the “Bad Ass of the Year” award for 2008 goes to this unnamed bad ass. May he evade capture till the end of his days.
