Phil Kingston, an 83-year-old protester with a group called Christian Climate Change, was filmed eating a sandwich on the top of a train at Canary Wharf DLR station in London as part of the ongoing protests by Extinction Rebellion. According to the Bristol Post, Kingston used to be a lecturer at the University of Bristol and is part of a group called Christian Climate Action. The paper reported in 2018 about Kingston’s unsuccessful attempts to get arrested by lying down on a road outside the Houses of Parliament at Westminster. Christian Climate Action quoted him as saying: “I take action for my grandchildren. I love them so much and it breaks my heart the thought of the world we are leaving them.” He has also been linked on Facebook to a group called Grandparents for a Safe Earth, while a 2015 blog post reported on a criminal charge he faced for spraying graffiti on the signage of a government department. He is reported to have changed the sign for the Department of Energy and Climate Change to the “Department for Extreme Climate Change.” That government department was dissolved in 2016 and its responsibilities assumed by the newly formed Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). BEIS was targeted by Extinction Rebellion in November 2018, with protesters blocking its entrance by glueing themselves to security barriers and the glass entrance door. The Extinction Rebellion protests began on April 15 with demonstrations taking place across Europe, North America and Australia. Credit: Christian Climate Action via Storyful

Underwater cameraman Ben Burville, who is a doctor by day in Northumberland, England, captured the moment a grey seal freed itself after becoming entangled in abandoned fishing gear. Burville told Storyful he encountered the seal in the waters off the Farne Islands in the North Sea. Burville has become known for capturing heartwarming underwater footage of seals, but this time he wanted his footage to highlight marine pollution. “If you watch carefully you can see that discarded rope is wrapped around the body of the seal in the film,” he said. “The underwater hazard is discarded [or] lost fishing gear, in this case, lobster pots and the associated rope. The rope and net material can continue to ‘ghost fish’ trapping fish, seals and crustaceans.” Despite the trouble the seal was in, Burville didn’t hold any fear for his “dive buddy.” He told Storyful, “Fortunately, I knew this specific seal who had been diving with me for over one hour was very at ease and used to this specific hazard. I obviously would never have let it get trapped but it highlights the potential risk to our wonderful marine life from marine debris.” Burville posted the video to Twitter on April 23 to highlight the issue of marine pollution, though he told Storyful that the incident happened in September 2017.

A man, reported to be in his eighties, was among the Extinction Rebellion protesters who climbed on top of a train at Canary Wharf DLR station in London on April 25 as part of the group’s two-week action against government inaction on climate change. The Guardian named him as 83-year-old Phil Kingston. He had earlier been filmed eating a sandwich while on top of the train. According to the Bristol Post, Kingston used to be a lecturer at the University of Bristol and is part of a group called Christian Climate Action. The paper reported in 2018 about Kingston’s unsuccessful attempts to get himself arrested by lying down on a road outside the Houses of Parliament at Westminster. It appears the police were reluctant to detain him on that occasion because of his age. Christian Climate Action quoted him as saying: “I take action for my grandchildren. I love them so much & it breaks my heart the thought of the world we are leaving them.” He has also been linked on Facebook to a group called Grandparents for a Safe Earth. The Extinction Rebellion protests began on Monday, 15 April, with supporters taking part across Europe, North America and Australia. Credit: Fight 4 Our Future via Storyful

Canadian geologist Shahin Dashtgard filmed the incredible natural phenomenon of the mud volcano at Yangpu pond near Kaohsiung, Taiwan on April 20, 2019. Several small active mud volcanoes are located in Southern Taiwan, according to tourism guides. According to Dashtgard, the volcanoes are formed when intense tectonic pressure combines with abundant rainfall that turns the earth to liquid. Dashtgard recorded this video of the mud volcano alight. He told Storyful that a local man set the mud alight for Dashtgard to see, and that it stayed lighting for around five minutes. The mud is made up of mainly organic material; bacteria use the material and water to generate methane in the mud, which fuels the flames. Dashtgard told Storyful that the spectacle was “probably the coolest thing I’ve seen.” Credit: Shahin Dashtgard via Storyful
