Not everyone is a fan of Apple. It wasn’t that long ago when Greenpeace protesters released black balloons inside Apple’s 5th Ave. store to protest the use of coal to fuel its iCloud service and now seven people have been arrested and charged with trespassing after chaining themselves to train tracks used by Duke Energy and Apple to ship coal outside of the Marshall Steam Station in Catawba County, North Carolina.
Protesters also raised a sign that read, “Save Our Mountains Clean The Cloud” and draped Apple logos over the train cars, so that everyone would know who the coal was for. The activists see coal as a dirty energy source that causes asthma, other sicknesses, and contributes to global warming.
They would rather have companies focused on using clean, renewable energy sources. There is no comment from Apple yet.
