1,200 Limos, 140 Private Jets—Let the Copenhagen Hypocrisy Begin!

Copenhagen hasn't even begun and we're already witnessing environmentalists' hypocrisy.  The city has seen a huge influx of luxury, co2-emitting travel.  Majken Friss Jorgensen, managing director of Copenhagen's biggest limousine company, usually has 12 limousines on the road but during Copenhagen she'll have 200 in service.  Of the 200 Jorgensen is managing, only 5 will be hybrids.

There is an estimated 1,200 limos escorting attendees during the summit, and limos are being driven in from other countries in order to meet the demand.  On top of this, there are an 140 extra private jets flying in political dignitaries and their celebrity counterparts.  Not that I have anything against private jets or limos—it's just more than ironic that upon landing they'll preach to annihilate the very comforts they so enjoy.

Between the limos, private jets, trains, commercial airfare (I doubt many are riding bicycles to the event) and activities for the twelve-day conference, it is expected that 41,000 tonnes of carbon will be emitted for the 16,500 attendees.  This is the same amount of carbon that was emitted by Morocco in 2006.

It is yet another instance where environmental elitists dismiss their behavior because of the "importance" of their work.  It seems they are always enjoying the comforts of luxury when demanding that others need to start sacrificing for the good of the planet.

I've decided we need to coin a new term for liberal hypocrisy since when they engage in hypocrisy they don't seem to see it, they only see it when conservatives and Republicans. So I'm thinking maybe if we make the word liberal part of the new term they will notice it then. Or, I am just delusional? smilies/cry.gif
