Putting anti-pollution face masks on two 2,000-year-old Chinese terra cotta warriors on view at the British Museum, a father of two young girls sought on Sunday to draw attention to China’s role in carbon dioxide emissions and global warming, Reuters reported. Hustled out of the exhibition by guards, the father, Martin Wyness, said he was protesting the lack of international action. “Nothing was damaged,” he said. “It was all very respectful.”
