            Activists for a greener earth are holding demonstrations around the world Saturday prodding policy makers to cut carbon concentrations to below their current levels, according to The Washington Post.

            Many U.S. officials and experts are trying to dampen expectations for climate talks that culminate in Copenhagen, Denmark, in December, The Washington Post said.

            In 173 countries more than 4,500 events were including; children racing through the main square in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, also Chinese university students wearing scuba outfits in popular areas, according to the Washington post.

            The protests were organized by the 350.org movement, whose name refers to the goal of reducing carbon concentrations in the atmosphere from its current level of nearly 380 parts per million to 350, according to the Washington Post.
