The article reports on the activities of climate change activists in response to some environmental issues in Great Britain. Protesters dressed as polar bears to remind Environment minister Hilary Benn of the threat posed by melting ice caps. They also turned up at a biofuels conference and exhibition in Newark, England where they locked themselves to the podium and set off alarms. According to Benn, the government had approved the offshore windfarm, the London Array, which will generate enough electricity to power one in four homes in greater London.
