Women Who Find Ferrari Drivers Sexy Contribute to Global Warming?

Global Warming

If it seems like there’s a lot going on in the Climate Change news recently, you can attribute it to the UN conference on Global Warming in Bali last week.

Well, one of the more interesting things learned from the conference comes via Britain’s top government scientist Sir David King, a chemist at the Univ of Cambridge.

Sir David King said that the best thing women can do to ease global warming is “stop admiring young me in Ferraris.”

Really? There’s nothing more proactive women can do other than that?

Wired’s blog has full quotes from David King.

Amazingly it was only 70ft off the shore and in 10ft of water, makes you wonder why it took so long to find it.

Lets wish the research team good luck in the plunder they find.
