We're all DOOMED!

That's what we all hear from the religiously dogmatic adherents to man-made global warming. "We gotta do something NOW, dammit!!" the Al Goreists shout until their vocal cords are frayed apart.

Then why the f*** do we read things like this: Copenhagen climate summit: 1,200 limos, 140 private planes and caviar wedges???

On a normal day, Majken Friss Jorgensen, managing director of Copenhagen's biggest limousine company, says her firm has twelve vehicles on the road. During the "summit to save the world", which opens here tomorrow, she will have 200.

"We thought they were not going to have many cars, due to it being a climate convention," she says. "But it seems that somebody last week looked at the weather report."

Ms Jorgensen reckons that between her and her rivals the total number of limos in Copenhagen next week has already broken the 1,200 barrier. The French alone rang up on Thursday and ordered another 42. "We haven't got enough limos in the country to fulfil the demand," she says. "We're having to drive them in hundreds of miles from Germany and Sweden."

And the total number of electric cars or hybrids among that number? "Five," says Ms Jorgensen.

Ever hear of teleconferencing? The free Skype download?? Nothing like preaching about how everyone needs to "do something NOW," then generating the carbon footprint of the country of Morrocco from 2006!

And then even when sensible measures are taken to switch to cleaner power, we see idiots like Diane Feinstein getting in the way:

Senator Dianne Feinstein introduced legislation in Congress on Monday to protect a million acres of the Mojave Desert in California by scuttling some 13 big solar plants and wind farms planned for the region.

Oh no! The plan might affect some monuments! So much for our impending doom from global warming -- a crisis so severe that a couple of monuments thwart the construction of facilities to produce clean energy!!

But the dogmatic rock on ...
