Of all the places to host a conference on climate change, the UN stupidly chose the place as far from UN headquarters as they could get....the tropical island paradise of Bali. 10,000 people will attend the "conference"(I used quotes because the "conference" is really a tax-payer funded vacation for family and friends of UN reps). Unless you are completely devoid of humor, liberals-I'm talking to you, you can't have missed the irony of jetting half way around the world to gripe about CO2-induced global warming having just gushed millions of tons of CO2 into the atmosphere by flying there.
I was curious about the "carbon footprint" this UN jaunt would leave so I Googled it. What I found was this site run by Scott Kirwin called The Razor, in which he details the carbon footprint of the UN conference on global warming. It's pretty interesting, but the bottom line is that they presume to lecture us little people about driving SUV's and grilling burgers, but their flight to Bali left a footprint thousands of times bigger.
