Hooray for the Kingsnorth Six
Our good friends at Greenpeace UK tried to shut down the Kingsnorth coal-fired power plant not long ago. The bobbies didn't much care for that, and six of them were arrested as they tried to paint a message on the giant smokestack. But you know what happened today? A jury of their peers acquitted them. Our hero Jim Hansen weighed in, testifying that they were protecting property of greater value--that would be this sphere we call the Earth--with their actions. In fact, he reminded the court that until we get back down below 350 there can be no rest--we need many such inspired protests! Our congrats to the good people on the stack--and on the jury.
