Greenpeace Activists Sentenced for Mt. Rushmore Action Eleven Greenpeace activists were sentenced Monday for participating in a protest at Mount Rushmore. The activists were arrested in July after hanging a banner from Mount Rushmore that showed a photo of President Obama with the words America Honors Leaders, Not Politicians: Stop Global Warming." The banner was hung next to the carved mountain face of Abraham Lincoln. The eleven activists pleaded guilty to the charge of climbing Mount Rushmore. They were each fined $460 and ordered to perform between fifty and 100 hours of community service in the National Park system. One of the activists, Matt Leonard, was given a two-day jail sentence.

www.greenpeace.org.au || Weve been urging Obama to earn his Nobel Peace Prize by leading the world to a fair, ambitious, and legally binding climate treaty in Copenhagen when he attends the UN climate summit next week. Seriously, our Greeneace Nordic colleagues and the crew of the Rainbow Warrior in Oslo have been very busy. Literally the moment he arrived in Oslo, he was pretty much been inundated with messages from concerned citizens of all kinds, including a large contingent of Greenpeace activists with several direct communications for him.

Greenpeace environmental activists managed to add a fifth face, that of Barack Obama, to Mouth Rushmore next to that of President Lincoln, albeit temporarily. The face of Obama was in the form of a banner demanding an end to global warming.

*Disclaimer: I completely support the environment, and would be happy to support another, less obnoxious environmental non-profit. Additionally, this video should in no way suggest an endorsement of any political party or policy. It's simply meant to poke fun at one foolish act by a single organization. UPDATE (7/10): From the Associated Press: "The activists intentionally damaged part of the memorial's security system and were able to delay rangers' response to the demonstration Wednesday, said Nav Singh, a spokesman for the Mount Rushmore National Memorial." Therefore, this was NOT a peaceful protest. An example of a peaceful protest would have been organizing a march or a demonstration in DC, NOT an illegal act involving trespassing and tinkering with security systems. The text in the video pretty much says it all. Greenpeace illegally climbed Mt. Rushmore and draped a banner on it to raise awareness for global warming. Yes, I support Greenpeace's mission, but really? Was this necessary? From Greenpeace.org: "After successfully deploying a banner 65 feet tall by 35 feet wide, our climbers have come down and have been taken into custody by authorities. But they got our message out loud and clear." ...I fail to see how defacing a national memorial - which people travel many miles to see - is a success, but bravo to Greenpeace, who today certainly got one "message out loud and clear": that they are willing to go to ridiculous, stupid and dangerous lengths to further a ...

Iron Mountain Road in the Black Hills of South Dakota (hwy 16-16A). Tunnel, horseshoe curve, and 360 degree loop over/under one of the pigtail bridges. Watch for the view of Mt. Rushmore when exiting the tunnel. In response to questions, I filmed it by placing my camera on a tripod and sticking it up through the sunroof of the rental car. That's why the camera is so high above the road and there's no windshield glare. You can see the red car hood in a couple of places at the bottom of the screen.
