Five thousand activists from around the world joined the Friends of the Earth International ‘Flood for climate justice’ in Copenhagen today. They demanded climate justice and an end to offsetting carbon emissions. Our spectacular, blue-coloured, crowd flooded through the streets of the city with a clear message to decision makers: Offsetting carbon emissions – the practice whereby rich industrialised countries pay developing countries to cut emissions rather than making cuts at home – is unfair, and will not lead to the cuts in greenhouse gas emissions the world desperately needs.
