Experiments with truth: 9/15/09

  • Greenpeace embarked on a 15-day journey with five elephants yesterday in Thailand that it’s calling The Chang(e) caravan. Chang is Thai for Asian Elephant, a species that is facing imminent extinction due to loss of forest cover. The aim of the caravan is to call upon world leaders, Barack Obama in particular, to take immediate action to avert climate chaos.
  • Two climate change activists from the Climate Rush group were arrested Sunday after breaching security at Oxford Airport in Britain. They were taking part in a protest picnic against the airport’s expansion, when they decided to jump over a fence to reach the runway area.
