Andrew Gilligan examines the hypocrisy:

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.”

The airport says it is expecting up to 140 extra private jets during the peak period alone, so far over its capacity that the planes will have to fly off to regional airports – or to Sweden – to park, returning to Copenhagen to pick up their VIP passengers.

    The whole thing is a joke! It is all for the show, a political correct one that is. The Emperor’s New Clothes, the Potemkin Villages… all in one soup of mysticism and religion… so help us God (and by the way he is dead)…

    And as for objective and critical media reporting… these ‘fine’ media is all supporters of the conference and the importance for it to close a ‘Hopenhagen’ deal! So much for critical and objective journalism:

    How deceptively clever, the One-Worlders are meeting in Copenhagen under the pretense of solving global warming.

    The plot thickens.

  3. bobbo, libertarianism fails when it becomes dogma says:

    Yea, its not enough “to be right” on an issue, we also have various moral litmus tests you have to also follow before we allow ourselves a new idea.

    For global warming/pollution/coming energy crunch we require you to wear sack cloth, walk everywhere in sandals or preferably barefoot and limit yourself to washing by wet cloth once a month.

    Silly Hoomans.

  4. Faxon says:

    This story is even better than I would have thought. Jet planes having to fly to back and forth for the big shots. Typical.

  5. Uncle Patso says:

    Time to change the name of the blog to “Climate Change Debunked While You Wait”

    Sounds a lot like Louisville during the Kentucky Derby weekend, without the mint juleps.

    Seems like WebEx is missing a fantastic promotional opportunity.

  8. Animby says:

    You can’t really expect world leaders to fly in on RyanAir. But, how many of these people are really leaders and how many are just bureaucrats with a high self-importance index?

  9. ECA says:

    NOW…
    can we get cameras and RECORDERS in the meeting..

  10. martron3000 says:

    What? They couldn’t just charter some buses to carry these so-called “VIP’s” to the conference. Oh no, they need to ride in luxury in their gas-guzzling limos. Buses are for the “common” people!

    But don’t worry- they will find ways to save us all from the evils of “carbon dioxide”. Maybe they should start by not breathing for awhile.

  11. Ed Hayes says:

    Has anybody noticed where it says:

    “Outraged by a council postcard urging delegates to “be sustainable, don’t buy sex,” the local sex workers’ union – they have unions here – has announced that all its 1,400 members will give free intercourse to anyone with a climate conference delegate’s pass. “
