Show me your climate leader

Posted: Updated:

The clock is ticking on climate change. In one month, 192 countries will meet at the international climate summit in Copenhagen to negotiate a new global treaty to prevent catastrophic climate change.

Everyone, including our political leaders, know what needs to be done in the deal: it must be fair, ambitious and binding. But at talks this week in Barcelona -- which aimed at trying to build consensus on key issues ahead of the final discussions -- progress was idling and political will from rich countries was severely lacking.

Heads of state need to step up and be the leaders people everywhere expect them to be. Today, aliens from Planet B went looking for climate leaders in Barcelona. Their message was delivered loud and clear to governments at the UN by TckTckTck -- a global campaigning force including 350.org, Avaaz, IndyAct, Greenpeace, and Oxfam -- watch the video and see photos below:

Here's a photo of the aliens with lead US negotiator, Jonathan Pershing:
