South Pacific climate activists blockade Australia port.......

Hundreds of climate change protestors have attempted to disrupt shipments of coal from a port north of Sydney using their canoes, kayaks and surfboards to form a blockade.
The group included people from countries in the South Pacific who said they wanted to highlight the affects of climate change on their nations.
They said the burning of coal mined in Australia was causing sea levels to rise which will impact low-lying Pacific islands.
