Climate Talks Held Hostage

Greenpeace Rescue Unit on Scene!

Feature story - December 17, 2009
Greenpeace activists and emergency vehicles descend on the Chamber of Commerce in response to a climate emergency.

This global warming crime scene was quickly taped off by Greenpeace activists as a hostage negotiator attempted to make contact with the group. Tension mounted as the negotiator and activists attempted to convince the Chamber to "put down the coal, step away from the climate talks, and set the world free."

The Greenpeace climate crime unit intervened at the scene of the crime, confronting the lobbyists who work for the very industries who create and profit from criminal climate destruction.

The Chamber and its clients have a history of climate crimes, and clearly their motive is to maintain the obscene profits of their clients. Already, an estimated 300,000 people die every year as a result of the global warming that the Chamber's clients contribute to.  In the coming year, it's crucial that President Obama not allow climate criminals like industry lobbyists to handcuff progress on global warming.
