Hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving.
The UN climate conference begins in Montreal. The article says that there will be about 10,000 people attending. I’ve been to conferences where there were over 10,000 people before and what I want to know is, what is the environmental impact of transporting, housing temporarily (in posh hotels no doubt), and feeding that many people for 10 days? Keep in mind that the feeding part is going to be mostly restaurant fare, and all the waste that implies.
All that for what gain? Will anyone really care in 10 years if the US doesn’t sign?
