For the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Cancun, which began today, representatives from somewhere in the neighborhood of 194 countries flew to Mexico from all around the world. Why? Well, partly to tell the rest of us we need to chill out on the long-haul flights:

In one paper Professor Kevin Anderson, Director of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, said the only way to reduce global emissions enough, while allowing the poor nations to continue to grow, is to halt economic growth in the rich world over the next twenty years.

This would mean a drastic change in lifestyles for many people in countries like Britain as everyone will have to buy less ‘carbon intensive’ goods and services such as long haul flights and fuel hungry cars.

Can we just go ahead and add “Climate Change Summits” to the growing list of things that cause global warming?

These climate change “scientists” are a self-fulfilling prophecy if there ever was one.

Do you think Al Gore has any plans to halt his economic growth?
