From this morning's mailbag:

Oslo 9 Dec 2007

Little Håkon, the 3 year old son of a Greenpeace campaigner in Norway, Truls Gulowsen, delivered a wild wood anemone to Al Gore in Oslo today. Håkon and his father found the spring flower by the river blossoming in December. It should blossom in April!

Gulowsen sees a double meaning in this unusual phenomenon; It offers further evidence that climate and nature are severely disturbed. It can also be interpreted as a symbol of a new spring in our struggle against climate change.

With this simple flower Greenpeace congratulates Al Gore and IPCC for their Nobel Peace Prize.
