Hopenhagen 2009, doubtful....

Click title for a sweet video.

With the climate talks about to begin hundreds of UN reps and guests are piling up private jets and luxury cars. BMWs and Jaguars. Mercedes and Audis. This summit plans to put a cap on how much CO2 the world (America) is emmitting and then leave it up to the nations to tax the shit out of green and not-so-green industries.
Seriously. Why don't they just do a Cisco video conference like in all those awesome commercials we see? Face time. Some douche-sack wants a photo-op with the president of Luxembourg so we all go to Copenhagen. Our president will be there along with about 20 members of the cabinet.
They say all these people traveling to and from the conference will leave the carbon-footprint of a small country. This doesn't make sense to me.
With all the talk of global warming (or not global warming, that is the question) and humanity's negitive impact on the environy, how can they do this? This is blatantly hypocritical. So obviously against the grain (green), that I really wonder if they're just having a party and laughing it up while they rake in the dough from cap-and-trade and make us sit in soybean sofas and drive shitty cars.
They tell me, "Ride your bike to work! Save the environment!"
Then they pull up in the 2009 BMW 7 Series (seen below).

My work is 10 miles from my house. No way in hell I'm waking up at 4:30AM and riding the bus downtown. I should not have to sacrafice my liberties just for these guys to fly a private jet on a 2 week jaunt to beautiful Denmark. Eff that.
