"We really wanted to point out some of the lip service that is often paid to climate action still needs some more substantial, significant steps to phasing out those fossil fuels, including coal – but also of course, oil and gas, particularly in the United States."

– Cassady Craighill, media officer with Greenpeace USA, on Greenpeace International's daring climate activism at such events like the G20 Summit
