Global Warming Summit December 6, 2007

No, I’m not in Bali.

Unlike approximately 10,000 participants (from 190 countires) of said UN summit on global warming.

Anyone see the irony of transporting all those people by plane to a resort island to discuss global warming? I won’t deny that there are cases where face-to-face meetings are invaluable if not absolutely necessary, but 10,000 people???

It IS an irony – and so is the fact that Al Gore has many massive homes and flies between them.

Now if the meetings were held virtually that would send a better message about using technology to conserve energy and be more efficient and cost effective as well.

10,000 does seem to be a bit much. Especially seeing as how there is little hope that even the most forward thinking nations will move towards any binding agreements on climate change (even then, as with Kyoto, they may not even be able to honor them).

wow! I didn’t know so many people was going. 10.000 it’s absurd, maybe 1.000 people would be more appropriate, I think.
