Yeah, but how many trees died in vain?

On Thursday, Greenpeace handed out print copies of a spoof edition of the IHT ...

to press world leaders to agree on ambitious efforts to tackle climate change.

The eight-page mock-up included everything from an environmentally friendly Garfield comic strip to a horoscope (Sagittarius: 'There is a limit to what you can do with the resources available to you').

There was even a full-page, but fake BP advert bearing the slogan: "We changed our logo. We can change the world".

The paper was handed out in Brussels' European quarter shortly before EU leaders were to begin a two-day summit at which the environment is on the agenda.

In all some 50,000 copies were distributed free in the European capital as well as several cities in Asia, the United States and Mexico.

The edition was dated December 19, 2009, the day after a global climate conference will take place in Copenhagen.
