Four Greenpeace activists who crashed a gala dinner for heads of state at the end of the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen have been released by Danish police, Reuters reports. Three of the activists had dressed themselves in evening attire and walked the red carpet at the event, where they unfurled signs that said: "Politicians Talk, Leaders Act." They were protesting what they deemed a failure of the UN talks to reach an agreement that would significantly curb carbon emissions and global warming.
