Aliens from Planet B stalk climate talks in Copenhagen

Environmentalists stage a protest with a banner reading 'Japan save Copenhagen $200 bn needed' at the UN Climate Summit in Copenhagen, Denmark, Thursday. AP

The visitors -- activists from environmental group Avaaz.org -- staged the stunt ahead of a government decision in Tokyo on setting Japan's contribution to a fund to help poor nations badly exposed to climate damage.

Under the gaze of bemused Danish security guards, the "aliens" were admitted to the delegation office where they explained they had come to deliver a warning from Planet B, a world destroyed by climate change.

"We have been searching all month for climate leaders, and today Japan is looking like our best hope," said a costumed E.T.
