Watch Your Headlines, HuffPo

When I saw this story, the headline linking to it on the Huffington Post read: “Individual Activist cuts 2% of Great Britain’s Emissions”. Awesome, right!? What did this person do- buy all local, walk everywhere-? How inspiring, I must learn their secrets and share them with my readers! Dum de dum de doo.

Except when I went back later to read the full article, the headline had changed to “Activist Sabotages British Power Station, Reducing Country’s Carbon output by 2%” (you can check it as long as it’s still up on the Green page).

Ah. Well, that’s a bit different. For future reference, “activism” and “sabotage by breaking into a guarded compound and tampering with incredibly dangerous electrical equipment while managing to not be turned into a grilled cheese by some miraculous luck” are different birdies.
