Now this is priceless. The UK Telegraph has calculated that the 60,000 attendees at the Earth Summit in Johannesburg will produce 500,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide, or as much as 500,000 ordinary Africans would in a year.

Is anyone going to try and tell me that they couldn’t have done most of it by teleconferencing? But of course, that would reduce the amount of five-star schmoozing available.

Why call it an "Earth" summit? Are they considering holding it somewhere else? Perhaps at the bottom of the garden.
