Six days before the Copenhanen Climate talks, Greenpeace activists calling attention to hazards posed by coal-fired power plants found that hazmat suits may not be enough protection. Clad in protective suits against hazardous materials, the peaceful activists, seeking only to take pictures of the toxic by-product, were aimed at and met with warning gunshots by security guards of the coal ash dumpsite in Barangay Tinaan in Naga, Cebu. Greenpeace is reiterating its call to save the climate by quitting coal.
