    It is the developed nations removing the path to development from the countries trying to become developed. It is hypocritical, elitism, and overbearing. Without the developed nations taking the lead and at least showing some effort to cut their emissions, then why should the developing nations go a higher cost route to become developed nations? It is just one more barrier to become a developed nation. And when you through in the growing evidence that this is "fake science" then it becomes a tool to keep the little guys down while continuing to grab it all for the big guys.

    So look at it from their perspective and see that it sure seems like another way to keep the poor nations in the dirt and under the heels of the rich nations.
    I agree to some extent. However, I think that the bottom line is to bring us all down to banana republic status. We can all become peasants while the UN appoints our kings and queens. I only hope that the "little guys" cause enough of an uproar to derail the whole movement.

    Update:

    Developing nations ended their boycott of climate change negotiations in Copenhagen after finding a solution to their dispute with industrialized nations, an official with the European Union said Monday...

    Developing countries, including China and India, brought the negotiations to a halt earlier in the day with their demand that rich countries offer much deeper cuts in their greenhouse gas emissions.

    You see there is the loop hole.

    Developing countries, including China and India.....
    Total crap. Developing countries don't have nukes.

    In other news, the Canadian delegation was delayed due to weather...

    Does global warming equate to cold weather no longer existing? I would think it would be called "global warm" at that point as the world would no longer be warmING.

    The black and white nature that opponents of global warming interpret weather is quite ludicrous.

    "OMG it's cold today that means that global warming is false!"

    Why are the data sets used to formulate this hypothesis that the earth is warming due to man's emission of CO2 now not available?

    And, let me guess, you think 'cold weather' means no global warming?

    Those PR firms working for big energy and coal companies sure earn their fees.

    Let me guess, you think that a theory based on manipulated data sets, and trotted out there as some doomsday scenario, when in reality it is nothing more than a political, Marxist take over of the world is all true don't you?
