Sun, Wind and Water Make A Break For It

In a scene reminiscent of Woody Allen's "Sleeper," up to 50 Greenpeace
activists dressed as solar, wind and water power broke into a Swedish
nuclear power plant to protest
an upcoming vote expected to expand that country's nuclear industry
after a longtime trend of phasing it out. Many activists were able to get
into the plant using fire truck ladders,
raising the issue of security at a place you'd think wouldn't provide
easy access to anyone, never mind someone dressed pretty goofily as a
wind turbine.
