Behind the Scenes at COP-18 - By Craig Rucker - Planet Gore - National Review Online
But the COP chieftains have instituted a “paperless” policy, depriving delegates of daily programs and copies of negotiating documents that keep them relatively informed. And while this policy has allegedly “saved” 217 trees as of yesterday (I know this because the U.N. keeps a running tally prominently displayed on electronic billboards throughout the conference site), it has angered many who find this policy a means to keep the public in the dark about the current status of demands and negotiations.

Cathie Adams, president of the Texas Eagle Forum, made this point at a CFACT press briefing in Doha yesterday. She noted that in all her 17 years of attending U.N. climate gatherings there has never been this much difficulty getting up-to-date information or reluctance to accomodate informed public input into the process. A harsh indictment, indeed.

Crews at Stockholm’s Arlanda airport were forced to remove 200.000 cubic meters of snow in the wake of the storm, nearly as much as the 250.000 cubic meters removed for the entire 2011-2012 winter season.

Wind power receives federal financial support per mWh between twenty and one hundred times that given conventional power; the PTC does not “level the playing field.”

I think one day wind farms WILL become a tourist attraction: as a static museum to greed, folly and corruption on an epic scale.
