Greenpeace Climate Climbers Busted on Mt. Rushmore

"Greenpeace activists were arrested Wednesday for scaling Mount Rushmore and hanging a banner next to the carved face of Abraham Lincoln urging President Barack Obama to get tough on climate change.

A video posted on the environmental group's website showed the massive banner hanging on the South Dakota mountain face.

Its message -- 'America honors leaders not politicians: Stop Global Warming' and an unfinished portrait of Obama -- was barely visible as it was whipped by wind."
