It’s mind-boggling that this circus to save Gaia requires 1200 limos.

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.”

Please note there are no hybrids

“We don’t have any hybrids in Denmark, unfortunately, due to the extreme taxes on those cars. It makes no sense at all, but it’s very Danish.”

It’s delicious, really. The hypocrisy is breathtaking…and completely predictable.

And frightening.

But I need a laugh today so I thought I’d resurrect this old thread from Tim’s old home where we re-wrote some Springsteen lyrics…

Old Bruce “I’m On Fire”

New Green Bruce:

Hey little girl, is your daddy home?
Will you please put down that damn cell phone
And pull back that curtain
Damn Halliburton

Tell me now baby, don’t you think it’s alarmin’
How celebrities contribute to Global Warmin’
With our greenhouse gasses
Pompous asses

Sometimes it’s like someone took their Hummer, its engine throaty with brawn,
And spent an hour doing donuts in the middle of my lawn

At night I wake up with the sheets soaking wet
Pursued in my dreams by a Swift Boat Vet
And when we tour he won’t come see us
Can’t get laid in a Prius…

    I’m just waiting for the video of them driving a limo from Sweden to Denmark on the direct route.:)

    I wish I could find my post about burning down a swamp. Even Blair was impressed, if memory serves.

    But enough bragging. Let’s send a couple dozen stretch Hummers so we can say we’re doing our part for the children.
