Save the climate now

We're already making news in Copenhagen. Friends of the Earth and other groups called out the Danish government for acting in a biased, manipulative and nontransparent manner as it presides over the UN climate conference. Danish leaders are holding secret meetings that exclude representatives from developing countries -- and then ignoring their demands!

In this picture from last night, Bund (the Friends of the Earth group in Germany) uses a "melting" mermaid ice sculpture to bring attention to the need for a just climate agreement, which must include ambitious and binding commitments by developed countries to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. World leaders: don't sit back and let us melt away!
