The G8: Can We Bear It?

The leaders of the United States, Germany, Japan, France, Britain, Italy, Canada and Russia convened in Italy today to begin the G8 Summit. They will undoubtedly focus on the economy.  But to make sure other issues are addressed, common people are there to protest and have their concerns seen by those most powerful. 
Greenpeace wants to ensure the climate issue gets its fair time in the talks and has organized a cheeky way to get their point across.  
They have peppered, er... salted, the streets of L'Aquila Italy  with Polar bears. 
These 'Homeless' bears bear signs that read "My home has melted" "I've lost my home because of Global Warming" and "I'm a Climate Refugee" .
Go Bears!
