The Photograph Gallery of Greenpeace Greenland Petermann Glacier Survey

Saturday, 18 July 2009

Jason forwarded an email reporting that Greenpeace International are very pleased that the UK newspaper The Daily Telegraph have posted a gallery of 27 photography, by Nick Cobbing, of the Arctic Sunrise’s Petermann Glacier survey on its website. The photographic gallery is available via the following link: Photograph Gallery

The ‘date stamps’ within the file names indicate the images were captured over the period from 29 June to 16 July 2009.

The forward email noted: This is significant because The Daily Telegraph is regarded as the UK politically conservative ‘newspaper of record’.  On the day of its initial hosting, the article was at the top, front, center of the homepage.  Greenpeace in Greenland
