Santa's Carbon Footprint

As the big climate conference in Durban, South Africa, totters toward its conclusion, delegates are turning a blind eye to a previously unexamined source of greenhouse gases: Santa. Activists are focusing on issues like the growing U.S. export of coal to Asia, but what about Santa's worldwide coal-export racket? And just imagine the carbon burden imposed by his perverse siting of a major industrial facility on the rapidly melting North Pole. Thanks to Ethical Ocean for the expose.
