PROBABLY one of the best ways to cut CO2 emissions dramatically would be to cancel climate Conferences, starting with Poznan.
One has only to look at the skies filled with private jets and the subsequent use of limousines to ferry delegates to these. Once there, consider the great increase in emissions required to pamper these people in the style to which the climate industry has accustomed them. Carbon neutral? What a joke.
Similarly, look at the long line of climate scientists who happily travel the world to warn of the dire need for the rest of us to cut emissions. If they were really sincere, they would use teleconferencing. Their admonitions are not dissimilar to those of overpaid CEOs preaching about the need to cut wages.
Incidentally, since Kyoto was ratified: emissions worldwide increased 18%; emissions from countries that signed the treaty increased 21%; emissions from non-signers increased 10% and emissions from the U.S. increased 6.6%
