On August 17,  eight environmental activists clad in white coveralls entered the grounds of New Hampshire’s largest remaining coal-fired power plant. There, they photographed themselves shoveling the coal into white, plastic buckets. In a press release issued days later, they claimed to have stolen 500 pounds of coal on behalf of the planet.

“With the global climate crisis having advanced this far without a dramatic change in US carbon emissions, we have a responsibility to remove this fuel from the fire,” Climate Disobedience Center co-founder Tim DeChristopher said in a statement. “Indeed, it is now a necessity to take matters into our own hands and safely shut down this facility.”
