Whether you agree with their tactics or not, The Yes Men have been effective at bringing attention to some really important climate and humanitarian issues. I think they first made waves by perpetrating Dow’s fake apology for the Bhopal disaster but they’ve also managed to get the US Chamber of Commerce to….pay attention to Climate Change….which is a pretty big deal.

This is a great example of how to use a Tool Library!
Here is Gaston ..continue reading
