'Flag For The Future' Planted On North Pole Seabed

A Greenpeace team have planted a time capsule on the seabed at the North Pole. A 'Flag For The Future', attached to a glass and titanium time capsule containing the signatures of nearly three million people, was planted on the seabed beneath the North Pole. Greenpeace is calling for the region, currently under threat from climate change, oil companies, industrial fishing and shipping to be declared a global sanctuary and free from exploitation.
