Copenhagen carbon load: 1,200 limos, 140 private jets

posted at 6:57 pm on December 6, 2009 by Allahpundit

Nothing new, but still pretty amazing. After Climategate, which the UN’s own climate chief now acknowledges is a PR nightmare, and with recent polls showing growing skepticism about global warming — and not just U.S. polls, either — you’d think the AGW crowd would go the extra mile at its big photo op to demonstrate the urgency of the crisis. Instead, this. Either they still don’t realize they have an image problem or they don’t care, opting to pay for their sins with indulgences from the corrupt carbon-offsets industry instead of emulating the average joe and doing without luxury transportation for two weeks. For a bunch of politicians, they sure are stupid about optics.

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.”…

The temptation, then, is to dismiss the whole thing as a ridiculous circus. Many of the participants do not really need to be here. And far from “saving the world,” the world’s leaders have already agreed that this conference will not produce any kind of binding deal, merely an interim statement of intent.

There are so many jets headed there that the local airport can’t accommodate them all; after dropping off their passengers in Copenhagen, some will have to fly on to other regional airports so that they can “park.” All this for the privilege of rubbing elbows at a conference that’s not only aiming at the wrong target, but is destined not to hit it. Exit quotation from Achim Steiner, head of the United Nations Environment Programme and a PR genius every bit as brilliant as, say, Barbara Boxer: “This is not ‘climategate’ it’s ‘hackergate’. Let’s not forget the word ‘gate’ refers to a place [Watergate] where data was stolen by people who were paid to do so. So the media should direct its investigations into that.”

Can’t they telecommute? They could have all the sessions virtually and get big sponsorships from Google Wave & Cisco. The technology is there for pretty much everything–other than probably the convention hookers.

dedalus on December 6, 2009 at 7:02 PM

Climategate – in the grand scheme of things – makes Watergate look like a nickel and dime misdemeanor! Watergate affected U.S. politics; Climategate affects the entire civilized world in a scheme that makes Bernie Madoff look like small potatoes.

Barbara Boxer wouldn’t know the difference. She’s just pushing the moveon.org talking points for the day.

Diane-

More symbolism.

ABOARD THE CLIMATE EXPRESS (AP) – A train splashed with a green stripe carried 450 U.N. officials, delegates, climate activists and journalists from Brussels to the climate summit in Copenhagen on Saturday to symbolize efforts to reduce the convention’s carbon footprint.

Most of the 15000 attendees will come by plane.

CWforFreedom on December 6, 2009 at 7:14 PM

And far from “saving the world,” the world’s leaders have already agreed that this conference will not produce any kind of binding deal, merely an interim statement of intent.

“This is not ‘climategate’ it’s ‘hackergate’. Let’s not forget the word ‘gate’ refers to a place [Watergate] where data was stolen by people who were paid to do so. So the media should direct its investigations into that.”

First, the stupid is strong in this one.

Second, the Watergate “burglars” were indeed investigated and punished, but the burglary itself started the avalanche of events that eventually brought down the President of the United States and many of his aides/enablers.

Third, the stupid is also strong in Barbara Boxer.

Fourth, the irony in this whole story – the 1200 limos, the 140 private jets used at a conference of “OMG! Teh World is going to become a desert in two years if we DON’T DO STOP USING FOSSIL FUELS NOW!!eleventy!!1″ – is even more rich than the caramel/chocolate cake my mom used to make. Couldn’t even drink milk with that sucker, had to drink water.

Liberals have a fatal logic flaw in their attempts to save the world; they believe more aid and platitudes will change a country’s course.

The only long-lasting change 3rd world nations need is to overthrow corrupt dictators and governmental entities. Corruption is what binds a nation to poverty, not a lack of funds. Democracy has freed more nations to pursue prosperity than paternalistic foreign aid ever has.
