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.
