Another "Climate Trick" Controversy: Copenhagen Prostitutes Giving Freebies

red-light-crop-webHad enough of climate-change deniers harping on the “trick” used by researchers working with raw climate data? The Danish government has their own brand of denial for you—they’d like to pretend the country’s sex industry doesn’t exist, according to Der Spiegel:

Copenhagen Mayor Ritt Bjerregaard sent postcards to city hotels warning summit guests not to patronize Danish sex workers during the upcoming climate conference. Now the prostitutes have struck back, offering free sex to anyone who produces one of the warnings.

The postcards are complete with the catchy and eco-friendly slogan, “Be sustainable–don’t buy sex.”

The Sex Workers Interest Group was unimpressed. So to fight back on behalf of the country’s working girls, they will offer free sex to any delegate that flashes both the government postcard and their conference ID badge.
