The Artic Sunrise arrived in town to promote the Greenpeace initiative. The Greenpeace Ship Arctic Sunrise is returning to the US to kick off the Coal Free Future Tour. Greenpeace is working with communities across the country to take on the coal plants that harm our health and our planet. Coal fired power plants are the leading man made source of CO2 emissions, making coal one of the biggest threats to our climate. Coal mining destroys mountains and poisons our water and bodies. Communities impacted by the dangers of coal are coming together to take down these potential harmful to the environment. The ship stopped at the downtown docks in Wilmington for free tours on this unusually cold winter day. The ship was here only until Sunday. It was a good thing for families to see on a wintry Saturday down on the river.
