Red-eye to Copenhagen

By Juliet Eilperin

The upside to catching the direct SAS flight from Washington-Dulles to Copenhagen Monday night: you catch a glimpse of several D.C.-types headed to the U.N.-sponsored climate talks, including Ben LaBolt, spokesman for President Obama's assistant for energy and climate change Carol Browner; Kit Batten, science adviser to Interior deputy secretary David Hayes; Brooks Yeager, executive vice president for policy at Clean Air-Cool Planet; and Alexander Ochs, international policy director for the Center for Clean Air Policy.

The downside: you have to listen to people chatting about "the structure of the deal" and "inter-agency consultation" when you're trying to sleep, as the bluish glow from their laptops illuminate the darkened cabin.
