The Hypocrisy of the Climate Changers

I don't know if Drudge was intentionally doing this (he probably was), but here are two items that appeared on the Drudge Report this evening:

Copenhagen climate summit: 1,200 limos, 140 private planes and caviar wedges


Christmas trees banned for climate summit

Now admittedly, the ban on Christmas trees has more to do with political correctness than with the climate impact of the trees. But just imagine the dichotomy, on a day when the Obama Administration is preparing to issue new rules that could require business to cut down on carbon dioxide emissions, that the natural carbon dioxide scrubbers (trees) are banned from a summit designed to reduce the trees workload.

I profess to not spending as much time on the climate change hullabaloo as others. But the environmental impact of a climate change summit seems more than a little hypocritical to me.
