Polar bear arrest.

Yesterday, one of our activists was arrested outside the the US Department of Interior after a protest involving a polar bear suit and a paddle boat. Greenpeace US (along with other enviro groups) is pushing the Bush administration to face up to the fact that polar bears are endangered by climate change. Read the full story and watch the video.

I'm just trying to imagine the dialog, "You in the polar bear suit: We have you surrounded. Do not attempt to paddle away." But don't get me wrong. Those hip waders were a smart move. Pond water is mighty cold in Washington, DC this time of year. (larger photo)
