Ever wondered how to make a HUGE Carbon Footprint?

Well it's easy.

Just get a few thousand of your friends to come along, invite some press and have a chat about saving the planet.

I found this Article at Watts Up With That.

Here is a quote from the article;

On a normal day, Majken Friss Jorgensen, managing director of Copenhagen's biggest limousine company, says her firm has twelve vehicles on the road. During the "summit to save the world", which opens here tomorrow, she will have 200.

"We thought they were not going to have many cars, due to it being a climate convention," she says. "But it seems that somebody last week looked at the weather report."

Ms Jorgensen reckons that between her and her rivals the total number of limos in Copenhagen next week has already broken the 1,200 barrier. The French alone rang up on Thursday and ordered another 42. "We haven't got enough limos in the country to fulfil the demand," she says. "We're having to drive them in hundreds of miles from Germany and Sweden."

And the total number of electric cars or hybrids among that number? "Five," says Ms Jorgensen. "The government has some alternative fuel cars but the rest will be petrol or diesel. We don't have any hybrids in Denmark, unfortunately, due to the extreme taxes on those cars. It makes no sense at all, but it's very Danish."

Read the full article here.

The people going to this conference are telling us to reduce our CO2 output.

Is it a case of do as we say, not as we do.

Or is it a fact they are just hypocrites, who enjoy their luxuries to much.

We should be making small, but significant steps to help the environment.

Like i have said previously in this blog, we should start by stopping the deforestation of the rain forests, and to start planting more trees and plants.

I would love to know how much this conference is costing and who is paying for it?
