Greenpeace blocks coal import at the start of the climate conference CO6 in The Hague. Activists from the ship MV Greenpeace board the 150,000 tonnes bulk carrier, La Paloma, carrying a cargo of Australian coal in the Rotterdam harbour to protest against the lack of action by governments to prevent dangerous climate change. The protest comes two days before the start of the international climate change summit which starts Monday in The Hague, where governments must decide on how to implement the 1997 Kyoto protocol to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions by 5.2% from 1990 levels. The group of 18 activists board the ship and chain themselves to the hatch covers to prevent the ship unloading its cargo of coal as it moored alongside the EMO coal terminal in the Rotterdam harbour. They also unfurl a banner on the deck of the ship which reads 'stop climate change'. Greenpeace is calling for governments to begin the phase out of coal and other fossil fuels, and implement energy efficiency and renewable energy such as solar and wind, in order to reduce greenhouse gas pollution and prevent dangerous climate change.
