"Brisbane Airport Bans Climate Ad Ahead of G20"

"CANBERRA, Australia — A bid by environmentalists to confront world leaders with a digital billboard highlighting climate change has been thwarted by Brisbane airport authorities who deemed the message too political.

Brisbane Airport will be the Australian gateway for leaders of 20 economies when they gather in the Queensland state capital next week for the annual G20 summit.

Dermot O'Gorman, chief executive of the World Wildlife Fund, said Monday he was surprised that the Brisbane Airport Corp. had refused to allow the climate change message in the international arrivals hall as part of the #onmyagenda campaign."

The Associated Press had the story November 2, 2014.
