Coal ship labeled.

Third time’s the charm! Our next action finds us in southern Italy outside the town of Brindisi. We have delivered a one-two punch to coal in our last action of the tour. It began on Friday with an action at the biggest CO2 polluter in Italy, Brindisi Sud power station. This coal burning behemoth belches out 15 million tons of global warming pollution every year. Our Italian office and their intrepid climbers infiltrated the site to hang banners and label this plant the #1 climate killer in Italy.

The second part of our action is underway today in the water. After laying in wait for two days outside of the port of Brindisi, we launched a team of our activists this morning to deliver a message to the delegates convening in Bali, Indonesia for a UN climate conference: quit coal! If we want to save the climate and stop dangerous climate change, we have to stop burning coal. Delegates in Bali need to heed this message and support alternatives that will protect our climate over the long term. That means halting the expansion of coal in favor of clean energy technologies, such as wind and solar, and investing in efficiency measures that ensure we cut energy waste. We can do it.
