Jon Stewart kicked off the week with coverage of the COP15 climate summit in Copenhagen. He does an admirable job of summing up the good, the bad, the ridiculous, and the maddening from the news that's emerged over the last couple of days. And then there's the limos, and the scientists' get-rich-quick schemes . . . Video's after the jump.

For the record, that's one of my favorite attacks on climate change that Stewart mocks in there: that global warming is a hoax designed to line scientists' and Al Gore's pockets. Seriously--it's one hell of a PR machine that can convince anyone that the money grubbers in this scenario are the scientists--and not the fossil fuel execs who probably make more money than all the scientists in the world combined.
