COP21: Arc de Triomphe Sun Action in Paris

Photo | December 24, 2015

As the Paris climate conference enters the closing stretch, Greenpeace activists create a solar symbol around the world-famous Paris landmark, the Arc de Triomphe, by painting the roads yellow to reveal the image of a huge shining sun.The eco-paint is non-polluting water-based and will last for the rest of the conference. It will be visible from the air when politicians fly out of Paris this weekend, reminding them that whatever they agree here, the only credible way to beat climate change is to replace fossil fuels with the high-technology renewables systems being rolled out across the world.
