Bank of America (BAC_)'s annual shareholder meeting Wednesday was dominated by speeches from anti-coal activists, prompting CEO Brian Moynihan on at least one occasion to ask whether anyone had anything else to discuss.
"Anyone have a comment other than climate change?" Moynihan said as the meeting approached the two-hour mark. "Let's diversify a bit."
Anti-coal activists led by the Rainforest Action Network (RAN) and the Sierra Club sent 30 activists to the meeting in Charlotte, N.C. Wednesday, according to Kerul Dyer of RAN, who herself attended.
