Call it Carbonhagen ~ By Joseph Farah

Commentary from WorldNetDaily
Joseph Farah By Joseph Farah Posted: December 10, 2009 ~ 1:00 am Eastern © 2009 Sometimes it's difficult to accuse liberals of hypocrisy because they don't believe in standards – or, at least, the standards are always changing. But not so with the climate alarmists like those meeting in Copenhagen this week. There they are – the elite of the world – making pronouncements about the way the rest of us have to live in the future: No big cars and trucks. No more power plants. No more refineries. It will be a future of windmills and solar panels as far as the eye can see. Somehow people will make their money trading carbon credits and in illusory "green jobs." In matters of man-made, catastrophic climate change, they have set the standards. But is that how they live? Not by the looks of what we see in Copenhagen – or is it Carbonhagen? The London Telegraph reports at least 1,200 limousines have been booked for the occasion – only five of them electric or hybrids vehicles. There aren't enough limos in all of Denmark to meet the demand. They are coming in from Germany and Sweden – driven hundreds of miles for the convenience of the international cartel of carbon cops. But that's not all. The airport is expecting the arrival of 140 additional private jets during the peak period of the global climate change convention. There's not enough room for them all to park in Copenhagen, so they will have to be flown to Sweden and then fly back for return flights. Nobody is walking. Nobody is riding a bicycle. Nobody is living the lifestyle they insist on compelling us to live. All told, the Telegraph reports, the 11-day convention will create a total of 41,000 tons of carbon dioxide – equal to the amount produced by a major city in the same time period. In other words, they're not going to allow their grave concerns for the planet affect their own comfort – not even for a few days, not even for show. READ FULL STORY>>
