WikiLeaks cables reveal how US manipulated climate accord | Environment | The GuardianHidden behind the save-the-world rhetoric of the global climate change negotiations lies the mucky realpolitik: money and threats buy political support; spying and cyberwarfare are used to seek out leverage.
The US diplomatic cables reveal how the US seeks dirt on nations opposed to its approach to tackling global warming; how financial and other aid is used by countries to gain political backing; how distrust, broken promises and creative accounting dog negotiations; and how the US mounted a secret global diplomatic offensive to overwhelm opposition to the controversial "Copenhagen accord", the unofficial document that emerged from the ruins of the Copenhagen climate change summit in 2009.
I thought the left claimed the world hated us for this type of behavior while Bush was in office?

I remember how they stood before the American people claiming that Bush was guilty of strong arming, threatening, lying and financially aided allies and enemies alike of America to get the world to believe what they wanted them to believe.
