Spiderman arrested for skyscraper climate climb
Famous building scaler Alain "Spiderman" Robert was arrested after climbing the Royal Bank of Scotland in Sydney, Australia.
He had climbed up and displayed a banner advertising One Hundred Months, the organization that believes we have a 100 month deadline to fix global warming or suffer dire irreversible consequences.
Dressed as Spiderman Alain Robert climbed one of Sydney's tallest buildings to raise awareness of climate change.
He is promoting the www.onehundredmonths.org website.
Good for him, a reminder that some of Australia's most senior politicians like would be Prime Minister Tony Abbott are on record as saying climate change is a myth.
As Australia has faced huge forest fires and the Murray-Darling river basin is drying up drastic action is some times needed to combat the well funded deniers.
