We covered the exciting news earlier that Greenpeace has purchased a $30,000 plot of land in the middle of the area that had been earmarked to become a third runway for England’s Heathrow Airport. Since Greenpeace announced the plan yesterday, publish support has been astounding.
Over 5,000 people have already bought parcels of Greenpeace’s plot. The idea is that the more people who own the land, the harder it will be for the airport’s owners to buy the land later — which hopefully will never happen. The owner of the company has already called Greenpeace’s plan “clever.”
Well, I’m going to assume that most of our readers here on Planetsave wouldn’t mind getting in on the action. Greenpeace has made that quite easy:
First of all, the cost to buy your own piece of land is amazingly cheap: it’s free! So even in this economy, you can own your own piece of land. If you’d like, Greenpeace has invited anyone to visit the site and set up a protest camp. They’ve already started the action by writing “Our Climate, Our Land!” on the ground in big enough letters for people from the air to see.
Anyway, get on over to their site to sign up to be part-owner of the would-be Heathrow land. I hear there’s a great view.
