Climate change activists carried out what they called an “art attack” in November by screening political messages on the sides of several London landmarks. Using powerful projection equipment, a group called the Prophets of Hope targeted Battersea Power Station, the Houses of Parliament, and one other building with the messages “How ironic to live in fear of terrorism and die because of climate change” and “The ultimate terror threat is climate change.” According to their MySpace page, Prophets of Hope exists “to fight the bleak situation that is climate change with the light of hope.”
