In this May 15, 2013 photo, protesters piloting the lobster boat Henry David T.,  attempt to block delivery of coal to the Brayton Point Power Station in Somerset, Mass. A trial begins Sept. 8 in Fall River District Court for Ken Ward and Jay O’Hara, the two environmental activists who used the boat to block the coal shipment to the region’s largest coal-burning power plant. Their attorneys don’t intend to dispute many of the facts in the case, but plan to argue that their actions were necessary because of the threat posed by climate change.
