Sun, Wind and Water Make A Break For It

In a scene reminiscent of Woody Allen's "Sleeper," up to 50 Greenpeace activists dressed as solar, wind and water power broke into a Swedish nuclear power plant to protest an upcoming vote expected to expand that country's nuclear industry after a longtime trend of phasing it out. Many activists were able to get into the plant using fire truck ladders, raising the issue of security at a place you'd think wouldn't provide easy access to anyone, never mind someone dressed pretty goofily as a wind turbine.

You can only humiliate yourself in public like that if you are truly dedicated to your cause. They are harmless. But not to the interests of the nuclear industry. They have embarrassed them even more. So they will be dealt with severely.

The existence of the nuclear power plants itself is a serious breach of environmental security and public health and if they can't deal with a little ray of sun shine and a rain drop dropping by to show the emperor has no clothes (and certainly nothing so cute) how can they deal with determined malicious intruders? Or even a natural disaster like an earthquake or a plane crash a la 911? But I'm laughing with you Party
