Comments on: Sleeping next to activists in Copenhagen http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/2009/12/12/sleeping-next-to-activists-in-copenhagen/ Global environmental challenges Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:14:55 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Karun http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/2009/12/12/sleeping-next-to-activists-in-copenhagen/comment-page-1/#comment-343702 Sat, 12 Dec 2009 21:11:34 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/?p=15330#comment-343702 Considering the very slow progress of negotiations, it seems unlikely that any of the two side shall be taking the demosntration seriously. If they can not have empathy with sufferes of Climate Change then personal experience of adverse impact only can bring out the change. Mediators require meditation to empower themselves and influence the two sides. Only feeling or stick shall bring out the change, neither thoughts nor demonstrations.

But again what are these demonstrators trying to achieve? One expects heating, a contributor to climate change. Someone trying for connectivity, which means computers, mobile phones, again a contributor to climate change. They are wearing clothes, probably leather shoes, jackets too, again climate change contributor. Most of these folks would then be non vegetarian, again non veg takes longer time to cook, again climate change. Non veg also means allocating land for grazing, required in large area than vegetarians. Are the demonstrators aware what they are contributing towards global warming than these stupid demonstrations?
