"How many trees died in vain?" is a half-joke, half-cliche which always makes me grit my teeth, but it did flash through my mind as I read a spoof editon of the International Herald Tribune.
With the headline "Heads of state agree historic climate-saving deal" it's Greenpeace's vision of what the paper might look like on 19 December, after a successful end to the climate change summit.
It's imaginative, with other headlines on Sarkozy renouncing nuclear power and the Earth's atmosphere being declared a world heritage site. It's witty: "Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi was rushed to hospital late today and treated for confetti inhalation and minor hug-related injuries".
But was it really necessary for this environmental organisation to send me 44 copies?
Given I was handed one as I left the metro this morning I now have 45.
