“IT HAS been billed as the summit that could help save the planet, but the latest United Nations climate change conference on the paradise island of Bali has itself become a major contributor to global warming.
Calculations suggest flying the 15,000 politicians, civil servants, green campaigners and television crews into Indonesia will generate the equivalent of 100,000 tonnes of extra CO2. That is similar to the entire annual emissions of the African state of Chad.”
Climate scientists such as Leo Di Caprio, Arnie Schwarzenegger, and Al Gore could be there. WWF, formerley known as the ‘World Wildlife Fund,’ are said to be sending at least 32 staff. Unfortunately Biggsy has a real and potentially useful job, in order to earn a living, so won’t be able to attend. However, UK taxpayers will be funding the £330 per night suites for the British delegation. UK Environment minister Hilary Benn (he’s a bloke) seems well qualified with a degree in Russian and East European Studies. Rumour has it that the next UN climate conference will take place on the moon, so that the delegates can observe the effects of humanity on the Earth. Be there, or be square.
