Interesting People # 72 - Nicolas Sarkozy

According to ecological magazine, Terra Economica, President Nicolas Sarkozy has a carbon footprint equivalent to that made by 1,000 of his fellow French citizens.

(Over the past 11 months he has produced 7,061 tonnes of carbon dioxide, which is the equivalent of the annual total emissions -- transport, housing, food -- of 1,000 ordinary French people. The hot air wasn't produced through all the gassing he does though, it was all that globe trotting in the presidential jet.)
