Another creative demonstration in the city featured a 4-tonne Greenland iceberg sent to Glasgow to melt outside the summit.
Gail Whiteman, the founder of Arctic Basecamp, said the block of ice was a reminder of the climate crisis taking place in the Arctic region.
She said the iceberg was brought in a “carbon-offset” cargo ship…
“It is one eco-region that packs a big punch and we felt that negotiators here had to actually come face to face with the Arctic so we brought the iceberg.”
I love how reporter Isabella Higgins describes this mindless vandalism and fossil fuel extravagance as “creative.” There must be a hundred artistic or representational ways to symbolise a block of ice that don’t require a cargo ship. On a more positive note, it’s good to see covid honour the promise it gave to the media last year to abstain from attending left-wing protests.
