The most heavily defended power station in the U.K. was breached by a lone eco warrior. Who left a simple and now familiar calling card ‘no new coal’. 

The intruder shut down one of the massive generators, instantly cutting Britain’s emissions  by 2%, after scaling the massive electric fences and other assorted security measures.  

After a year of growing smearing and contrived story telling about ‘eco-terrorists’, combined with the audacious protest actions by groups like Plane Stupid, ‘Climate Man’ as the protester has been dubbed by some, seems to have done the unthinkable and fulfilled the mission of this years climate camp. 

No one is quite sure who he is, activists seem perplexed as do the police and the owners of the plant and potential instigators in Britain’s first new coal plant in 34 years, E.ON. The power company vigourously assert that it was not an inside job. Speculation has suggested that due to the nature and competency of the action it could have been done by someone who had once worked in a power station.

Accordingly, unspecified rumours have indicated that the perpetrator was in the employment of British Nuclear Fuels (BNFL). The people (apart from everyone who will be affected by climate change) who stand to lose the most by the idea of burning dirty lumps of carbon to create electricity.
