Climate Change

Protest against carbon trading

A group of climate activists staged a demonstration in the City of London today to protest against carbon trading as a "false solution" to climate change.

Around 15 people set up tents outside the European Climate Exchange building in Bishopsgate, to coincide with the start of the crucial climate change conference in Copenhagen.

One of the activists said: "Carbon trading is part of the false solution being put forward in Copenhagen by the same people who brought us the financial crisis."
