Another Seaside Climate Meeting

For people who profess to fear warm temperatures, the climate community sure seems to love them in winter.  While the big news is that the British Met Office just called for a "do over" with regard to the world temperature record, I was amused to read in the news story,

At a meeting on Monday of about 150 climate scientists in the quiet Turkish seaside resort of Antalya, 

I did a little checking and here is what the tourist web sites say about this location.

This idyllic location results in the region basking in a glorious typical Mediterranean climate of long, hot summers and mild winters. Antalya is situated upon a cliff overlooking the sea, and due to its proximity to near by mountain ranges the region is protected from cold northerly winds.

If they are that concerned about our carbon footprints, why don't try video conferencing?
