I had to laugh at this story on Decanter magazine’s website yesterday about a little sideshow event at last month’s World Business Summit on Climate Change (Copenhagen, 24-26 May):
What made me laugh? Not so much the story itself – although that was pretty weird. (Eleven of the world’s top chefs “foraging for wild herbs, flowers and plants”? If only they’d had a camera crew with them.)
No, the thing that had me crying with laughter was the first comment in response, posted by a Neanderthal person named Guk.
I’m sure the chefs were trying to make a valid point. I just wonder how much carbon they poured into the atmosphere in getting there.
