Polar Bear Spotted in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK

Continuing the idea that the Polar Bear is now the symbol of global warming, this ice sculpture was created in the centre of Newcastle upon Tyne yesterday as part of UN World Environment Day. Other exhibits included a dry stone wall, a climate change garden, a Honda Civic hybrid car, the Climate Dome, various renewables technologies and lots of more traditional stalls. A good show all round and it attracted a lot of interest from passers by. With the Green Festival in the city this weekend, there's a lot going on just at the moment.

If your hometown put on anything for WED, tell us all about it in the comments (you've all been a bit quiet recently).
