1,200 Limousines for the Copenhagen Climate Summit

As ministers, representatives, and journalists from around the world gather in Copenhagen to discuss climate change, rental car firms are having difficulty providing enough limos to meet the demand:
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 local airport is expecting so many private jets that there will be no room to park them; the jets will have to fly to Sweden or other regional sites and then return later for their passengers.

What is the world coming to, is it falling apart or not? Would somebody please make up their mind? I mean we just love a good disaster don’t we. We do everything possible to destroy our planet and then say whoops what we gonna do now…
I have to say this article was interesting though http://ketiva.com/Environment/so_what_is_the_climate_like_in_copenhagen.html

If that happened, each of those jobs would be filled by limo drivers from India, and they would probably be just as competent then their predecessor. I'm also curious about what this "mysterious force" you're referring to could be.


I probably will have to agree with you on this one. Limousine can just mean a taxi service that charges a flat rate instead of a distance charge, and probably only so many of them being stretch ones. But even though, 1,200 is excessive.


Great vid, thanx! I think the whole thing was pretty relevent concidering the comments and the topic.

it is worth pointing out that plenty of opponents to environmental regulation and climate change are there as well. and also lots of hypocrites, of course.
