As with any U.N. climate conference, standard “hold on to your wallet” rules apply. While you’re doing that, try and predict the size of this carbon footprint:

Some of the main proposals in a draft text for negotiation at a U.N. sustainable development conference next month are being watered down at informal talks in New York, observers said on Tuesday, heightening fears the summit will fail to deliver.

The Rio+20 summit in Brazil from June 20-22 is expected to draw more than 50,000 participants from governments, companies and environmental and lobby groups.

It will try to hammer out sustainable development goals across seven core themes including food security, water and energy but is not expected to produce mandatory targets.

After watching how many summits around the world these jet-set people travel to, I can solve Al Gore’s “climate crisis” with a two word recommendation: Web conferencing.
