The Globe and Mail reports in its Monday, Jan. 16, edition that climate activists protested in Davos on Sunday against the role of big oil firms at this week's World Economic Forum (WEF), saying they were hijacking the climate debate. A Reuters dispatch to The Globe reports that major energy firms are among the 1,500 business leaders gathering for the annual meeting, where global threats like climate change are on the agenda. "We are demanding concrete and real climate action," said Nicolas Siegrist, the 26-year-old organizer of the protest who also heads the Young Socialists party in Switzerland. "They will be in the same room with state leaders and they will push for their interests," Mr. Siegrist said of the involvement of energy companies at the WEF meeting. The oil and gas industry has said that it needs to be part of the energy transition. More than 100 protesters gathered in a Davos square and chanted, "Change your diet for the climate, eat the rich," while some booed oil firms cited during a speech. "I know some of the companies are involved in alternatives but I think governments, with their subsidies, have to skew the field in favour of alternative energy," said protester Heather Smith.
