As scientists on board the Arctic Sunrise gather more data showing the urgency of the situation, world leaders stay inactive.

G8 ACTIONS Over 100 Greenpeace activists from 15 countries occupied four coal-fired power stations across Italy, demanding that the G8 Heads of State meeting in L'Aquila take decisive leadership on climate change.

GREEN ELECTRONICS We're giving HP, Lenovo and Dell--the world's biggest PC makers--a penalty point in our updated Guide to Greener Electronics, for backtracking on their commitments to eliminate PVC plastic and brominated flame retardants (BFRs) from their products by the end of 2009.

QUIT COAL Greenpeace renewed its call to ASEAN countries to urgently phase out coal fired power plants and invest in renewable energy to avert a climate catastrophe, at the launch of its report "True Cost of Coal' in Bangkok. The report was released to mark the fifth anniversary of assassination of anti-coal activist Charoen Wataksorn, at Bo Nok, Prachuab Kirikhan province of Thailand.
