Greenpeace hangs giant global warming banner on Mt. Rushmore
Members of the environmental group Greenpeace draped an enormous banner next to the carved stone faces of Mount Rushmore today, calling for more aggressive action to fight climate change.
The banner appeared to show President Obama’s face and the words “America Honors Leaders, Not Politicians. Stop Global Warming.” It was unfurled next to the image of Abraham Lincoln, on the far right side of the South Dakota landmark, starting about 12:30 p.m. EST.
