    Danish police have come in for heavy criticism over their handling of demonstrations taking place at the UN climate change summit in Copenhagen. In the course of two days, more than a thousand people have been detained most of them released without charge. Apart from world leaders - only attending the conference in its last 2 days - delegates have come in their thousands from all over the globe. NGOs, charities, independent observers, scientists, national representatives, journalists. With the flights and transport for all those people, the forum as a whole will generate nearly 41 thousand tonnes of CO2, as much as the whole of Switzerland in 2006. All in the name of creating less CO2 in the future.
