Energy Futures Summit, Abu Dhabi

A holographic prince, saving carbon emissions by appearing in virtual reality image to give a speech, in which religion is linked to saving the planet from climate change, a new renewable energy university funded by an oil shiekhdom, and a government sustainable development adviser who doesn't think his government is sustainable enough. Gotta love it.

Is the Guardian becoming the "People" magazine of the emerging climate cognoscenti? Or do I just live on a farm in Maine?

Maybe Prince Charles can "holographically" come talk to my sustainability economics class about his point of view. Now that would be a technological feat.
