photos: Seattle EPA Rally

On May 22, a few hundred Earth-loving Seattleites flocked to the EPA hearings addressing a recent ruling that global warming pollution is a threat to public health and welfare. It was one of two in the nation, and I couldn't help but stop by.

The first two are pictures of a young girl I spotted, semi-symbolically toying with a globe balloon she snagged from a passerby. Adorable and very well-behaved.

The last three are of some of the costumed demonstrators (who actually ended up interacting as I left). The first was a polar bear that seemingly mimicked the two-man Chinese Lion Dance; the two inside did a great job, and the costume itself was actually pretty impressive. Soon after, I ran into "plastic bag man." No more needs to be said. Then the two met each other, with hilarious (?) results.
