Protesters from 30 countries unite to fight global warming
Up to a million people will take to the streets of more than 100 cities in 30 countries today to demand greater action on tackling global warming.
The first worldwide demonstration on climate change will coincide with the opening of a key United Nations conference to set out the basis for the reduction of greenhouse gases after the Kyoto treaty expires in 2012.
Parties to the Kyoto Protocol have adopted a set of decisions that complete the protocol rule book. "The Kyoto Protocol is now fully operational. This is an historic step," said Canadian Environment Minister StÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â©phane Dion.
Naturally, the US is not a signatory, as the Flat Earth Society are currently the scientists in residence at the White House.
