Bonn, Germany -- At a climate conference here, a pair of senior White House officials convened several executives representing coal, natural gas and nuclear power industries to tout why these resources should be part of the world's solutions to climate change.

About 20 minutes into the event, dozens of protesters taking up most of the room stood up and starting singing alternative lyrics to the song "God Bless the USA." They sang for almost 10 minutes before walking out, leaving a mostly empty room. Gradually new attendees filed in.
