in Copenhagen; did these morons actually think they could trust each other?
The UN Copenhagen climate talks are in disarray today after developing countries reacted furiously to leaked documents that show world leaders will next week be asked to sign an agreement that hands more power to rich countries and sidelines the UN's role in all future climate change negotiations.
Heee, the UN weenies must have blown a testicle(metaphorically speaking*) when they read that.
Added: if you doubt this bad smell in Denmark is about money and control, go here.
Social justice demands that the industrialised world digs deep into its pockets and pledges cash to help poorer countries adapt to climate change, and clean technologies to enable them to grow economically without growing their emissions. The architecture of a future treaty must also be pinned down – with rigorous multilateral monitoring, fair rewards for protecting forests, and the credible assessment of “exported emissions” so that the burden can eventually be more equitably shared between those who produce polluting products and those who consume them. And fairness requires that the burden placed on individual developed countries should take into account their ability to bear it; for instance newer EU members, often much poorer than “old Europe”, must not suffer more than their richer partners.
I would like you to take a look at this line in particular: to enable them to grow economically without growing their emissions. I want you to read that line simply because it is a flat effing impossibility. Developing nations need energy and freedom to really grow, and the bastards meeting in Denmark want to refuse them both.
Good GOD, do these (unintelligible words trying to describe them) actually ever think about what they're putting out? THEY CAN'T EVEN GROW MORE FOOD WITHOUT RAISING THEIR EMISSION LEVELS, YOU FOOLS! Computers or radios or better building materials, better heating and cooling sources, better food storage, IT ALL HAS EMISSIONS. You're like that fucking bastard Ed Begley Jr., saying that African villagers should be 'allowed' to have some solar panels for radios or maybe some computers, but anything else would 'ruin their village existence'. You sorry bastard, they want to be able to cook without having to use charcoal or dried animal dung! They want to be able to preserve foods without being restricted to drying them or salting them or smoking(oops! Smoking means EMISSIONS, you going to ban that way of preserving meat? Or just ban meat from them?); they want to be able to move beyond late iron age or very early industrial age, and you miserable shits don't want to let them.
I'm stopping now, this is really messing with my appetite and state of mind. The little socialist tyrant wannabes fuck EVERYTHING up...
*Hey, it would have to metaphorically; they'd have to actually have some for it to be literal
