There are a myriad of ways we can all get the word out on the dangers of global warming, but scaling the 52-story NY Times Building in Times Square with absolutely no ropes or other safety accessories is not one we recommend. However, if you’re a gifted ‘Spiderman’, such challenges are a walk in the park.

Earlier yesterday, Frenchman Alain Robert (also know as the “French Spiderman”) successfully climbed up the building and unfurled a huge green banner at the top with the words: “Global warming kills more people than 9/11 every week.” Ironically, The Times tower is one of the greenest buildings in Manhattan After stepping safely onto the roof, he was immediately arrested by the waiting NYPD. 

Of course, it didn’t stop there. Another guy from Brooklyn took to climbing the tower hours after Spiderman to draw attention to Malaria. His t-shirt read: “Malaria No More. Save the Children.”

Great causes, idiot stunts.
