It is being hyped as the summit that will save the planet. But, according to critics, next week's climate change talks in Copenhagen are more likely to cost the earth.
Researchers yesterday estimated that the bill for the 12-day jamboree will top £130million – and will generate as much greenhouse gas as an entire African country.
The flights, limousines, energy, and food will produce 41,000 tons of carbon dioxide, which is more than the annual greenhouse gas output than Malawi, Afghanistan or Sierra Leone.
But don't worry--the Danes say they will offset this hypocrisy by planting trees and investing in green endeavors.
Why can't they just plant trees and cancel the summit?
