Last year six Greenpeace activists painted most of “Gordon Bin it” in big big letters on a coal-fired power station chimney, as part of a climate protest. Last week they were acquitted of causing £30,000 of criminal damage to E.On property. The jury had heard evidence from top scientist James Hansen about the damage caused by carbon emissions, and accepted the unprecedented defence argument that they were legally justified because they were trying to prevent climate change causing greater damage to property around the world.
