WASHINGTON - DECEMBER 09: Activists from Avaaz pull inflatable manequins out of the reflecting pool on the National Mall after throwing them in to protest climate change December 9, 2009 in Washington, DC. Wearing t-shirts that say 'CO2 Kills,' the manequins are supposed to represent the more than 300,000 people who die from climate-related illness, according to Avaaz. The organization is calling on U.S. President Barack Obama to 'earn' his Nobel Peace Prize during the UN climate talks in Copenhagen. (Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images)
