The Greenpeace ecological group, which is fighting the intended construction of a second power plant in Ashkelon, sent an activist in a polar bear suit to a student meeting with Kadima Chairwoman Tzipi Livni. Livni met with Hebrew University students on Thursday. The "bear," representing the North Pole, asked Livni what her plans for the power plant were. "I would have you know that during my tenure as foreign minister I worked with various UN bodies on (ecological) issues, as well as with Al Gore. I do think it is important, but I guess elections in Israel won't focus on that," she said. Attorney Nili Grossman, Greenpeace Mediterranean energy campaigner, told Ynet that the government must realize the using coal had devastating repercussions for both people and the planet. "There are viable alternatives to using coal for energy production," she said. "We must strive to produce clean energy, such as solar energy. All the premiership candidates must realize that they shoulder this responsibility and they must vote this bill down. After all, it is opposed by the Health and Interior ministries, the Knesset's Economics Committee and the various local communities. We will not give up on this." Greenpeace said they intend on sending the "bear" to a variety of political functions until the elections.
