Stop global warming

UPDATE - 12.40pm: There have been boat chases and arrests near the G8, as Greenpeace inflatables entered the exclusion zone.

After a week of farcical manoeuvrings and diversions in the run up to the G8, today’s the day of reckoning; this afternoon, Angela Merkel, George Bush, Tony Blair et al will sit down in Heiligendamm to talk about climate change.

Who'd have thunk it? The latest wheeze to help the PM get closer to his people is to have online petitions on the Number 10 website. Anyone can create a petition and encourage people to sign, and with the people from the excellent and behind it, it could actually be worthwhile.

Twenty-five of our climate campaigners were arrested at 5.30pm, after spending two days occupying Didcot, Britain's dirtiest power station, succesfully cutting Co2 emissions by stopping coal from being fed into the facility. Their point? To show that there's cleaner, more efficient ways of generating energy - like decentralised energy.
