Al Gore, occupant of the only private house that can be seen from space, so huge is its energy consumption, wanted to charge punters $1,200 to be photographed with him at Copenhagen. There is a man who is really worried about the planet’s future.


Is all that true? :shock:

When your attempt at recreating the Congress of Vienna with a third-rate cast of extras turns into a shambles, when the data with which you have tried to terrify the world is daily exposed as ever more phoney, when the blatant greed and self-interest of the participants has become obvious to all beholders, when those pesky polar bears just keep increasing and multiplying – what do you do?

If there were not $45trillion of Western citizens’ money at stake, this would be the funniest moment in world history. What a bunch of buffoons. Not since Neville Chamberlain tugged a Claridge’s luncheon bill from his pocket and flourished it on the steps of the aircraft that brought him back from Munich has a worthless scrap of paper been so audaciously hyped. There was one good moment at Copenhagen, though: some seriously professional truncheon work by Danish Plod on the smellies. Otherwise, this event is strictly for Hans Christian Andersen

That is the best summing up of the whole ridiculous affair that I've seen. Let us hope this will be the last of these idiotic meetings, fighting a non-existent problem with histrionic gestures.

He can't...

HE'S BEEN BANNED!

Thanked: time in post

NOOooooooooooo...........

Please don't tell me, in large bold capitals, that our very own Ejnar has been banned! :(

What for? Did he interfere with a photo posted here of a Bavarian woman wearing a dirndl? In my book that is about the only thing anyone should ever be banned from PnP Hard for. (Or maybe for interfering with the woman herself. :shock:)

Is all that true? :shock:


Here in Queensland, the popular saying is "Is that true, or did you read it in the Courier Mail?"
(The Courier Mail being the major newpaper in Brisbane)

In the case of P&P it's more like "Is that true or did truchas post it?" :lol:
