No wonder the negotiations are stalling in Copenhagen when the UN Secratary General Ban Ki-Moon doesn’t even know how much CO2 is emitted in a year.
In this video he states “This cube represents 1 ton of carbon dioxide, 80 million tons are emitted every year…”. The UK emits 560 million tons on it’s own every year!
If you watch the second video, the Millennium Art CO2 CUBE the video was recorded for, the mistake is conveniently edited out!
Clearly this is just a verbal typo, in that he meant to say “…each day…” but you have to think that maybe, if they put a little more effort into getting things right, rather than seeming to get things right, the negotiations might be going a bit better.
