On the eve of Australia’s federal election, Prime minister John Howard was followed on his morning walk by polar bears protesting against the destruction of the polar ice caps.

The Greenpeace-organised bears tailed Mr Howard on his walk around Canberra’s Lake Burley -Griffin to remind him of the urgency in dealing with climate change and to send him the message “we are both fighting for survival”.

Greenpeace’s The Big Switch campaign is surveying every candidate on their position on climate change. While more than 50 candidates had returned the survey, Greenpeace said not a single Liberal politician had responded.
