    There are alternatives to the methods that people used to get there, but logistically is there a way that would leave a lesser carbon footprint?
    How 'bout we just don't have the stupid meeting about something that doesn't exist? Just spitballin' here.

    These elitist have some nerve, no? One would think that if they REALLY cared about this supposed man made global warming or whatever they call it today, they might have took a train
    Didn't the Obama Administration just say that CO2 is bad for you health?

    the msm do NOT want to be talking about climategate, the emails

    but the president's idiotic descent upon denmark renders that discussion inevitable

    another smooth move, mr p

    Hong Kong 39,039
    Peru 38,643
    Slovakia 37,459
    Azerbaijan 35,050
    Trinidad and Tobago 33,601

    New Zealand 30,488
    Cuba 29,627

    List of countries by carbon dioxide emissions - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    I think you figures are more twisted than Glenn Becks brain.

    from the article:
    41,000 tonnes of "carbon dioxide equivalent", equal to the amount produced over the same period by a city the size of Middlesbrough.

    And you think this conference is causing more C02 than Hong Kong (with 7 million people) puts out in a year?

    Perhaps you should look where these numbers came from.

    Perhaps you should have read the details.

    The emissions listed are in "thousands of metric tons", ...quite a difference.
