Warning, I'm back on my soapbox.

There is a meeting in Copenhagen this week and next to explore ways of reducing carbon emissions caused by the burning of fossil fuels used in transportation and other activities. This meeting is being attended by all those who believe in man-made global warming. They want us to reduce our use of fossil fuels to save the planet.

There's one problem with this meeting. The majority of attendees arrived in their private jets and gas guzzling automobiles. There was no carpooling or even planepooling. I guess the need to reduce CO2 emissions only applies to the "little" people. These scientists and other believers in man-made global warming don't have to reduce their CO2 emissions or carbon footprints. They are being hypocritical. Their philosophy seems to be, "Don't do as I do, do as I say".

If they were truly concerned with the temperature of the earth and not their own interests, they would have made arrangements to use commercial airlines and drive cars that don't use a lot of fuel. If private jets and gas guzzling automobiles are good enough for the global warming crowd, they are good enough for me.
