Leaving Carbon Footprint While Promoting Green Movement

I read with amusement the feedback on "Parking cordon as bad as tissue paper reservation'' on 8/10/09. The tissue paper is in reference to S'porean 'particular' habit of reserving seat at crowded hawker centers...etc with tissue pack while they get their food. So now even our MPs are doing it, only the 'technique' employed is different.

A Member of Parliment and his Bishan/Toa Payoh GRC are planting trees as part of Singapore effort in the Green movement. 20 parking lots were reserved for them for the tree planting event. Is this not an irony ? They are leaving carbon footprints while promoting a green movement.

Besides, where is the consideration for the public by causing so much inconvenient ? So many parking wardens deployed just to reserve parking lots for them - is there misuse of manpower and public fund ?
