It took six hours for activists to scale the cables that extend 387 feet (118 metres) above Jerusalem, supporting a bridge that resembles a ship's sail and dominates the city's skyline. The climbers displayed their 1,550-square-foot (144-square-meter) sign for 40 minutes, said Theodora Karchovsky, a Greenpeace spokeswoman.
Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said none of the climbers was arrested.

Dramatic, Photogenic, But No Connection to Their Cause
Greenpeace did a spiderman protest on Jerusalem's String Bridge which meant that pedestrians were banned by the police from using it. I don't see the connection between the Ashkelon power plant they were protesting and the bridge. I personally almost missed my bus because of the extra time I had to wait for red lights etc. Whether it suits the lightrail or not, the Jerusalem Calatrava Bridge is magestic and apparently the new spot for daring and attention-grabbing demonstrations.
I thought that it has been proven that "global warming" isn't real; it's no more than a myth. It's not that the Left ever lets facts interfere with their ideology and causes.
