Giant Mechanical Polar Bear Leads Greenpeace Protest

Filed under: Mama NatureBearPolar Bear

Greenpeace walked a giant polar bear through Central London in protest of Arctic drilling!

Around 3,000 environmentally conscious, caring people marched through the streets of central London as a half protest, half performance demonstration.

They were coming out against oil companies in the Arctic and they were led by a giant mechanical polar bear!!

The giant beast was the size of a double decker bus and required 15 puppeteers and 20 volunteers to walk it down Lambeth Palace Road towards Shell headquarters.

The giant bear led protesters on a call to ban oil and gas drilling in the Arctic as this would affect the habitat of polar bears and could affect the entire environment!

We're pretty sure if you want to send a message and get noticed, a giant, 3-ton bear is certainly a good way to do it! Ha!

Hopefully the gas companies got the message: "Stop messing up the Arctic or we'll use our giant bear to eat your office buildings!"

Or something along those lines. LOLz!

Arctic Sea Ice SHATTERS Record! Reaches NEWER Low!

Filed under: EnvironmentScience!Scary!

DOOM!

We feel like every few weeks we write another story about the Arctic sea ice reaching some new historic low.

But most researchers didn't expect it to keep getting worse.

It's literally almost fall and the ice is still receding.

In the video, the black represents what the ice levels usually are, and the white ice you can see represents what actually happened this summer.

New data says the ice crushed the record it just set of only 1.58M square miles. It's now down to the new record of 1.32M square miles of ice.

Check out the video (above) to see how much less that is than average.

Homeless Polar Bear Wanders Through London!

Filed under: Music MinuteInspirationSad SadBearPolar Bear

Awww this is beary beary sad!!

But, what a simple, effective campaign attempting to reduce Arctic drilling…

The above Greenpeace video features an aimless, homeless Arctic Polar Bear forced out from her chilly, northern habitat due to money-hungry oil corporations and their effect on climate change.

The bear wanders through London's streets with Radiohead's Everything In Its Right Place ominously playing in the background.

Thom Yorke recently addressed the issue of our climate's precarious future, stating:

"We have to stop the oil giants pushing into the Arctic. An oil spill in the Arctic would devastate this region of breathtaking beauty, while burning that oil will only add to the biggest problem we all face, climate change."

So, so true. It's redicuouls to imagine how much money is being poured into an ultimately devastating source of energy, when it could be used to discover new, renewable ways to provide safe, clean energy for our already sick planet…

Warrior Princess Lucy Lawless Is GUILTY Of Trespassing

Filed under: Legal Matters

Lucy Lawless pleads guilty

Lucy Lawless really is a warrior princess when someone threatens the environment.

In an effort to protest Arctic oil exploration, the Xena actress boarded an oil-drilling ship docked in New Zealand last February and spent FOUR days on top of a 174-foot drilling tower.

The 44-year-old actress and five other Greenpeace activists were eventually removed and Lucy yelled, "Ayiyiyiyiyiyiyiyi!" the entire way down are now facing the consequences of their actions.

Lawless pleaded guilty to a trespassing charge and faces up to 3 years in prison, but she doesn't really seem to care too much. On her way out of the court room, she told sources:
