While the Daily Mail is a tabloid rag and not a reputable source, I still think it works as a lead-in to this topic. I'm sure the article is hyperbolic and slanted I frankly haven't read it. Hopefully we can focus not on it, but on the underlying issues that it brings up. It does strike me as antiquated that ~12,000 people need to gather anywhere to discuss something, and when the subject is Climate Change, then that just invites cries of "hypocrisy" or at least "short sightedness". Moreover, acceptance of the science is still being questioned and public perception is playing a big part in the debate, so not only does image matter, but it also makes sense to lead by example and adopt smarter methods for doing business. I would love to see these groups (scientists, diplomats, world leaders) conduct their summits remotely, taking advantage of the technologies available to them and setting an example by walking the walk, not just talking the talk. Thoughts?
