The Guardian has changed the text of the story but yesterday it referred to them being too exhausted to complete the installation, though in truth I cringed at what they had in mind, the flag works for me. The Shard
serves function as a metaphor for the arctic as shards of ice.
Ah yes, the literal, passionless rationalisation process.
I think as an action it was very effective in raising awareness, certainly people I spoke to yesterday could make the connections. Six girls climbing a building make a difference in the short term? No. But read as part of collective action across nation states saying enough is enough of top down decision making, I think it speaks to a lot of people in many walks of life.
