Flying…

So if all these delegates to the climate-talk-fest are so interested in reducing carbon emissions…

Can somebody tell me why Australia needs to send 90 people?

And can somebody tell me why they don’t use a video conference? After all, its much cheaper and it emits far less muck than flying almost half a plan load of people half way around the world. And buying carbon credits is a BS answer that does not cut it – that’s a silly excuse for rich people simply buying off their guilt with somebody not so fortunate.

Or perhaps its really just a big junket?

Hmm . .been a long time since I had junket! My boss (high ranking public servant) recently had a nice little jaunt to the US to look at . . .architecture . . .and I guarantee he didn’t stay in the Bates hotel either! (sorry if you get two comments, had a router breakdown in the middle of the last one)

Pollies want an overseas holiday, pollies get an overseas holiday. If by chance they happen to chat about the climate a bit, well, that’s just a bonus isn’t it? Video conferencing makes so much more sense, that’s why pollies never think of it….
