    They blow money like crazy, living in extreme luxury, and this whole 'jet-set' thing is just part of that "we're special, we can spend tax payer money on anything we want", and the Brits eat it up.

    Who are they to lecture anybody on making sacrifices? And why are you defending that crap?
    I'm not 'defending the actions of these spoiled brats'. I'm saying your criticism they should have taken a commercial jet to their destination is unfounded. They have security concerns others do not have and for them to travel by commercial jet is not practical.

    And I could turn it around and ask why you are not critical of the excess of some other 'spoiled brats' I'm aware of - but I wont - at least not today.

    But to get a bit more real. Could you clarify the part that actually annoys you. It it that they are spoiled brats spending boo-coodles of money, or is it more that you think AGW is a farce and these guys advocating for change while living like kings (or at least prince and princess) is just more proof it's all a farce?

    Can you please show me where I ever claimed they should have take a commercial jet?

    Let's deal with that first, while I ride my moped to pick up my $7.00 pizza to share with Mrs CP tonight.

    Um, wasn't the conference in Italy? It's actually possible to drive from Britain to Italy - even with secure vehicles, that's gonna be a lot less 'carbon costly'.

    But really, why travel at all? The whole thing could be video conferenced - and no nasty fossil fuels* required!








    *depending on where the person's electricity comes from and other things... Still, less wasteful than a jet!



    I want pizza...

    That would be the big bolded part:

    The primary criticism in that phrase (which is nearly the whole of your commentary on the article linked below it) is the use of a private jet over a commercial one.

    Jim, it's not nice to doctor or manufacture a quote in such a way as to make it look like I said what Seer posted. I'm going to be charitable and assume that was an accident - but please be more careful in the future, OK?

    And I have NOT proposed or defended the use of a commercial jet as an alternative --- I have been asking the PURPOSE of this lavish trip - the necessity of it. Why these spoiled brats had to go at all.

    THAT was my argument.

    Already dealt with that false claim.

    And I could turn it around and ask why you are not critical of the excess of some other 'spoiled brats' I'm aware of - but I wont - at least not today.
    I'm game - bring it! But note that I'm referencing spoiled brats living the lifestyle of the rich and famous on the back of the taxpayers, while lecturing others on sacrifice.

    But to get a bit more real. Could you clarify the part that actually annoys you. It it that they are spoiled brats spending boo-coodles of money,
    It is EGGzackly what I've been saying all along. Just read what I actually wrote instead of making something up.

    or is it more that you think AGW is a farce and these guys advocating for change while living like kings (or at least prince and princess) is just more proof it's all a farce?

    Jim
    And, see... I think this has been your problem all along - you did an Olympic style 'jump to conclusion' that I was commenting in any way, shape or form on the validity of climate change. I was not. But the mere thought of that sent you on this silly "defend the Royals" mission.

    THAT was my argument.
    First I would never, nor have I ever. manufactured something like that.

    So, yes I was responding to that quote of seers from the beginning of our exchange.My mistake was grabbing your post instead of seers to reply to, doesnt happen too often fortunately. So sorry for the confusion on that.

    I wouldn't think you would do that on purpose, no.

    You said we are good, but this response would indicate that is at best a fragile state. Is there any way to dial it back a notch and increase the probability poor wording or an honest mistake can be non fatal in a conversation?
