Climber Scales Paris Building in Climate Protest

1 monat vor


Famous French urban climber Alain Robert - nicknamed Spiderman - climbed a skyscraper Friday in the business district of Paris as a protest over climate change inaction. Robert climbed 160 meters up the 38 floors of Alto Tower, saying the stunt was an early demonstration against the COP26 climate conference. The United Nations Climate Change Conference, or COP26, will take place in Glasgow in November, but Robert is not allowed to climb buildings in Britain due to two injunctions for past stunts. "I have two injunctions that could lead me to a life sentence and a restraining order that could lead to a five-year sentence," he told the Associated Press. (AP)
