Happy Earth Day!

Today is Earth Day, apparently. To mark it, Greenpeace have released a new video.

They are aiming to get 3 million more people signed up with Greenpeace as climate activists and taking action in an extremely important year for our climate - at the end of which will be the most important conference this century, the UN Climate Conference in Copenhagen, where deals will be struck that will determine our planet's environmental future.

You can find out more, or sign up for their updates here.

Great video, thanks for posting it. Earth Day should be everyday, it is good that there is at least one day to spread awareness. Here are some suggestions on what you can do to help the Earth: http://www.toptentopten.com/topten/things+to+do+on+earth+day, you can add your own suggestions.

I'm a bit confused about this. An 'earth destroying' aircraft was used to film that segment.

A fantastically wasteful set of computer clusters is left on 24/7 to power the internet and 'destroy the earth'.

Shouldn't the Green Party be demanding an end to this sort of thing? Stop the world. Save it.

I look forward to the Green Party distributing goose fat to pensioners in Winter when our coal-powered power stations are prevented from working.
