    They're going to have a wonderful time - seeing the sights in Denmark - all patting obama on the shoulder for winning the peace prize.

    Have they ever heard of teleconferencing - no , that would be too easy and take all the fun out of it.

    Copenhagen climate summit in disarray after 'Danish text' leak | Environment | guardian.co.uk

    1. copenhagen collapses once more

    2. this time, tho, it's from the opposite corner

    3. the "danish text," leaked like an east anglian email, calls for the world's richest nations to be empowered, the poorest to be punished, and the UN to be universally uninvolved

    4. who's responsible for this thorough ripoff of the third world?

    5. according to The Guardian, it's the "circle of commitment," some escoterically secretive society "understood to include the UK, US and denmark"

    6. that dirty "danish text," evidently, "forces developing countries to agree to emission cuts that were not part of the original agreement"

    7. it also limites nascent nations to 1.44 carbon tons per person per year, while richer regions like ours are rationed 2.67 per

    8. furthermore, just like a harry reid health care bill, the copenhagen accords are being crafted in complete secret

    9. "clearly the intention is to get obama and the leaders of other rich countries to muscle it through," opined an anonymous diplomat

    10. "it is effectively the end of the UN process," concluded the crestfallen, excluded non-contributor

    11. obama syndrome is spreading worldwide, the international left is catching his complete incompetence

    12. he's contagious

    To be fair, the Copenhagen folks realise this problem and are making attempts to mitigate it.

    *Delegates are encouraged to use mass transit around the city as much as they can, furthermore rentable bicycles are on hand for the delegates' exclusive use.

    *200 climate-friendly (biofuel powered) limos are available if buses or bikes are not suitable.

    *Furthermore, the organisers have struck a deal with Bangladesh to help offset emissions from the event by providing funding for some more environmentally-friendly industrial facility (can't quite recall which) in that country.

    Let's not forget that there are something like 20,000 delegates. With the logistics of getting them all there and back, it was inevitable that emissions would be high. What makes Copenhagen different from the average summit is that attempts are being made to compensate, and we should at least be thankful for that.

    EDIT: There's a reason why videoconferencing isn't used at major events like this. Simply put, interpersonal negotiations are far superior when conducted person-to-person whilst also eliminating any possibility of setbacks from connection dropouts etc. that could occur during a videoconference. One other thing: I wonder what the CO2 emissions of all that videoconferencing equipment would be?

    Well he did place in bold the comments he was speaking of, he was hardly coming across like Col. Cathcart. Unless of course you were being serious about the Co2 output of telecommunications equipment..................
