Video: Protesters rally on behalf of Tuvalu

By Juliet Eilperin

COPENHAGEN--One of the biggest flashpoints at the climate convention has been the push by small island states, which are threatened by rising sea levels, for a legally-binding treaty with ambitious emission reduction targets. In this video, a group of protesters from the small island-nation of Tuvalu gathered outside the main delegate meeting room over the weekend and chanted in support. They are chanting "350," which is a shorthand for the atmospheric concentrations of carbon they think the world should aim for, 350 parts per million.
