Copenhagen is preparing for the climate change summit that will produce as much carbon dioxide as a town the size of Middlesbrough.
Opening of a climate summit in Copenhagen: Copenhagen climate summit: 1,200 limos, 140 private planes and caviar wedges.
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.
Climate Change vs Global Warming OK, I didn't get the memo where the term 'Global Warming', the rallying cry of the Green Movement, became out of favour and replaced by 'Climate Change'. Why the name change? Is there truth to the recent hacked Emails exposing Global Warming scientists selectively using only data supporting the cause? Because there is inclusive data to support global warming beyond what is cyclical, so let's call it climate change because this phrase need not be proven. Yeah, everyone knows that the climate changes - every day it does! Yesterday, raining and warm; today cold and sunny.

@old fart Ok, you seem to be seriously misunderstanding science. The term is irrelevant - global warming, climate change etc. so trotting out that old denier axiom "the name has changed! OMG!" isn't changing anything. Fact is that by examining CO2 closely and dealing with that aspect of pollution by increasing energy efficiency will help across the board - stop using giant vehicles to transport one person is going to decrease the amount of gasoline and thus the amount of other pollution. Insulate buildings better, use solar panels etc., etc is simply going to have a major effect in the amount of ALL pollution. And no, use of ethanol isn't the only way to power cars. In fact, that's the lst thing that should be done - reduce the weight and size of cars, then use ethanol to power them. Simple science really.
