Among all of these, Harper stands out as the biggest climate menace. Abe is not much further behind. The only one who has shown some leadership is Merkel. Obama talks the talk, recently, but doesn't walk the walk.

Those are great masks. Well done, Oxfam!

Interesting line up of the usual suspects. Surprised the Chinese aren't being tarred with the same brush.

@warispeace, your comment is worse than a pathetic joke, primarily because the caricature mask of what's labeled as Canada's Prime Minister is nothing like his real visage. BUT, what's more pathetic about your comment is that it's not climate change that's making people hungry or starving, it's the waste of food that western governments don't do anything about. When was the last time you actually did any research about the amount of food that's wasted in the movement of crops through warehouses to grocery chains, and the ultimate horrid waste from those grocery chains that ends up in waste bins behind their outlets? You know nothing about the subject.

Does Oxfam have a realistic plan to stop climate change? If it's just one that ticks all the trendy boxes, then Oxfam are part of the problem.

These 6 people (behind masks) needs to get a real job and education. "Stop climate change, Making people hungry"? are you serious? You really think these 6 masks are responsible or they have power to stop it?

Climate change is not man made. Its from solar flairs. Research and science have shown. We need China and India to sew a big blanket to mount in space to protect the oith from sun rays.

Yup, another populist slogan about people and their illusory power. Maybe I should make another sign too: "Flatten the mountains, turn back the rivers, reforest deserts... because it would be so cool" So, can any of you do it? You can't do it? How come? But I see you on the TV so much, you can do anything, right??? :(

@Alphaape, my comment was deleted by JT. They don't seem to like debate. Makes me think thrice about bothering with an inane online tabloid.

Get used to it, JT is in the same fold as Abe, they suppress the free flow of information and censor contrary thoughts or opinions.

Once one get used to their methods of bullsnit it's easier to understand their ignorance and stupidity.
