Giant Sun Painted on Berlin Streets to Promote Renewable Energy in Germany

BERLIN – Greenpeace activists spread on Tuesday thousands of liters of yellow paint on a Berlin street that were then dragged around by cars around a crossroads, painting a giant sun that could be seen from the air.

The environmentalist activists organized the protest at Berlin’s Grosser Stern to raise awareness of alternative energies, coinciding with the first meeting of Germany’s Commission on Growth, Structural Change and Employment on the future of coal mining in the country.

“The delayed coal exit ruins Germany’s carbon footprint and slows the modernization of our energy system towards solar and wind power,” said Greenpeace spokesperson Christoph von Lieven.

The activists used 3,500 liters (924 gallons) of washable, eco-friendly paint to create the sun symbol.
