Climate change summit slightly hypocritical wouldn’t you say?

As many of you treehugger types will know there is a major summit happening in Copenhagen that is dealing with climate change and the reduction of carbon emissions.

Amongst the delegates and VIP’s in attendance will be Leonardo DiCaprio, Daryl Hannah, Helena Christensen, Prince Charles and even our very own Archbishop Desmond Tutu.

Here’s the thing.

1200 limo’s have already been ordered and the airport is expecting 140 extra private jets during the conference.

Guess how many ecofriendly cars are in action during the summit.

 A whole 5 hybrid vehicles will be used.

Thats some bonafide hypocracy if you ask me hey.

“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. 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.” [telegraph]

Enjoy how they especially singled out the French  there.

The 11 day conference is estimated to produce 41 000 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent. I have no idea how much that is but it sounds like a sh*t load.

Not cool.
