Global Climate Change: Who Built the Ark? Greenpeace.

This is kind of amazing, actually. I'm not usually a fan of Greenpeace's stunts, but this one is really clever. AP reported yesterday that Greenpeace activists plan to build a replica of Noah's Ark on Mount Ararat, in what is now modern Turkey, where the Biblical vessel was said to have landed after the great flood (or the first mass near-exinction, if you want to call it that).

It's a clever appeal for action on global warming. Turkish and German volunteer carpenters are building the wooden ship on the mountain in eastern Turkey, bordering Iran. The ark will be revealed in a ceremony on May 31, a day after Greenpeace activists climb the mountain and call on world leaders to take action to tackle climate change.
