WWF (http://www.panda.org/climate/) held a staged event urging ministers to agree to limit emissions trading. WWF members wore masks with the faces of Yelstin, Clinton, Obuchi, Blair and Schroeder. Yelstin held emissions certificates which Japan and the US, who want unfettered trade, were trying to buy and EU leaders, who want to put limits on the amount traded, were trying to block them from buying emissions.

This meeting, arranged by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) in collaboration with BP, involved a demonstration of the game to interested climate change experts and an invitation to provide feedback to help the development process.
