The nattering naybobs of negativity are gathering in Copenhagen to save the planet this week.  Al Gore can't make it for some reason, yet all of his close personal friends are getting together for one big group hug to stop GlowBall Warming.  so you would expect lot's of mass transit, green travel and minding your carbon footprint right?  Wrong.

1200 limos, 140 private jets, 5 hybrid cars.........

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. "We haven't got enough limos in the country to fulfil the demand," she says. "We're having to drive them in hundreds of miles from Germany and Sweden." 

And the total number of electric cars or hybrids among that number? "Five," says Ms Jorgensen. "The government has some alternative fuel cars but the rest will be petrol or diesel. We don't have any hybrids in Denmark, unfortunately, due to the extreme taxes on those cars. It makes no sense at all, but it's very Danish." 

The airport says it is expecting up to 140 extra private jets during the peak period alone, so far over its capacity that the planes will have to fly off to regional airports – or to Sweden – to park, returning to Copenhagen to pick up their VIP passengers. 

But they are gonna save us from......gotta run, my limo is here.

PRICELESS, indeed.
