Greenpeace building Noah’s Ark to draw attention on global warming

Desperate to draw the attention of the policymakers around the world, Greenpeace activists have come up with an innovative idea and they plan to unveil a replica of the Noah’s Ark on Mount Ararat to muster support for action on global warming.

Turkish and German volunteer carpenters have joined hands to build a wooden cook on the mountain where Noah’s biblical vessel had landed after the great flood. Greenpeace activists will climb the mountain on May 30 to issue a clarion call for the world leaders to tackle the issue and the next day, the ark will be unveiled.

Greenpeace activist Hilal Atici said climate change has emerged as a serious concern and the world leaders should react before it’s too late.

Atici said

Climate change is real, it’s happening now and unless world leaders take urgent, decisive and far-reaching action, the next decades will see human misery on a scale not experienced in modern times. Those leaders have a mandate from the people … to massively cut greenhouse gas emissions and to do it now.

Incidentally, the United Nations delegates are meeting this week in Germany as preparation for the December negotiation on a successor of the Kyoto Protocol which expires in 2012. The negotiation is expected to come up with a bunch of new international rules to cut down on greenhouse gas emissions.
