There's a 2000-year-old archaeological mystery preserved in Southern Peru: Enormous images carved into the desert by unknown ancient artists. The beautiful Nazca Lines depict birds, monkeys and humans, and some of the creations span up to 370m. And a man just drove over them with his truck.

Operators of the Dakota Access Pipeline filed a lawsuit against the environmental activist group Greenpeace on Tuesday that accuses the group of violating US federal racketeering laws. The suit outlines sweeping claims of collusion between Greenpeace and numerous other organisations and individuals. It paints a picture that wouldn't be out of place in an Alex Jones fever dream.

Greenpeace can get a little aggressive with its tactics. That doesn't mean that it's not fighting for a good cause! But after the organisation marched through the sacred Nazca Lines etched into the Peruvian desert for a climate protest, capturing it all on camera with a drone, you have to wonder what the hell they were thinking. Greenpeace isn't the best at thinking things through though.

The Rockaways in New York are in a state of emergency. They haven't had power in a week, and it doesn't appear to be coming back any time soon. Independently operated aid distribution centres have been popping up, helping people get the food and supplies they need. But given gas shortages, it's been hard to keep things up and running at night.

Earlier this morning, Greenpeace launched a full offensive against Apple's Cupertino headquarters. First, in the middle of the night, they projected messages onto the main façade of Infinite Loop. Later, they placed an Apple-branded pod right on the door, inside Apple's property.

Call it the Battle of Maiden. This week, Apple and Greenpeace traded very public barbs over how much clean power is used by Apple's $US1 billion state-of-the-art data centre in Maiden, North Carolina.

When it comes to technology companies, Nintendo have one of the worst environmental records out there. They have owned the last placed slot on the Greenpeace Guide to Greener Electronics for years now, and don't look like they're about to change. But what if they did? Mark over at Kotaku spoke to Casey Harrel from Greenpeace about exactly what Nintendo could do to make them seem a little more eco-friendly.
