The latest from Copenhagen: Prostitutes Offer Free Climate Summit Sex. Aren’t they aware of how much CO2 will be released by all of that heavy breathing?

Copenhagen Mayor Ritt Bjerregaard sent postcards to city hotels warning summit guests not to patronize Danish sex workers during the upcoming conference. … Copenhagen prostitutes are up in arms, saying that the council has no business meddling in their affairs. They have now offered free sex to anyone who can produce one of the offending postcards and their COP15 identity card, according to the Web site

So those postcards are kind of like a Monopoly “Get Out Of Jail Free” card, if you replace “jail” with “pants”?

…the move has been organized by the Sex Workers Interest Group (SIO). “This is sheer discrimination. Ritt Bjerregaard is abusing her position as Lord Mayor in using her power to prevent us carrying out our perfectly legal job. I don’t understand how she can be allowed to contact people in this way,” SIO Spokeswoman Susanne Møller tells

Of course. Another union. Why am I not surprised?

Møller adds that it is reprehensible and unfair that Copenhagen politicians have chosen to use the UN Climate Summit as a platform for a hetz against sex workers. “But they’ve done it and we have to defend ourselves,” Møller says.

So basically, Bjerregaard was trying to screw prostitutes by preventing people from … screwing prostitutes. This makes as much sense as anything else that will be coming out of Copehnagen in the near future. (BeerDrinkingVictoryMonkey pointed out earlier today that “with a little reworking ‘Copenhagen’ becomes ‘Hopenchange’.)
