    hmmm i suppose it would be crass for me to point out that the 1 man from the 1 nation came out and blasted capitalism..... and the other representatives from the other 192 nations gave him the largest standing ovation of the entire conference?

    would it be too stupid for me to point out that Thomas Friedman (and a few others) basic response to the Climategate emails was "so what if AGW isn't true? So long as it gives us a reason to do what we want to do, then its' beneficial." ?

    It's the ends (control) that are important, not the myth [ame=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georges_Sorel]myth[/ame].

    Nope ma'm... 1 in 193 is willing to say it! 192 are scared to tell the truth!

    If it WAS about the climate there wouldn't be throngs of anti-capitalists pushing this global enviro-fascism treaty.

    I KNOW conservationists, I KNOW environmentalists.... and I know more than a few socialists....

    Conservationists want you to turn off the lights when you're finished..

    Environmentalists want to ban all lights.

    Enviro-fascists are just socialist, anti-capitalists who hate the success of America and demand they pay the rest of the world for their own failures and couldn't care less about the environment.. IE: The anti-American socialists you see in Hopenhagen!

    The latter people (and I use the term LIGHTLY) are the ENEMY of freedom and liberty... you may take their side if you choose.

    It's a simple and clear difference that you will see if you only look 1 inch past the headlines.

    Hell, that's what we've been doing for 50+ years. I would venture a guess that if we gave 100% of our GDP to poor countries, they would still be the crapholes they are now. Money is not the problem.

    The problem is corruption.. as very little of the money we throw around the world goes to help those it was intended to help. Most of it goes to the corrupt politicians in those countries.

    Environmentalists have been overrun by the anti-capitalist, socialists, as has DC.

    I have NO PROBLEM taking care of the planet.. I've got a BIG problem surrendering our sovereignty to socialist enviro-fascists! and buying gold-plated biz-jets for dictators!

    that is correct. Africa, for example, has received the equivalent of three Marshall Plans in public aid; yet remains mired in chaos poverty and suffering.

    a bug in the plans of all wealth-distributionists everywhere: you can't make people rich by giving them money.

    Two examples of why throwing money at problems doesn't fix them: Africa (as mentioned above) and American Ghettos.

    Am I wrong here?

    Re: Global Wealth Can Heal the Planet

    Its definitely not the rich developed people to blame for global warming. It's surely the poor people for not being rich. For not doing as the US says with their economies.

    Congratulations americans. You are the only ones in the whole planet that get it. Good job spotting this obvious global communist plot against you.

    Anyways...

    In a free world you are free to make the obvious connection that it is capitalism that has caused global warming. You don't have to be a communist to say that. Happy indigenous folks in their huts didn't cause it.

    Maybe those smart-ass folks in the international world of books and political theories are too loose lipped and should fear the word capitalism?

    You might be right if Capitalism didn't result in most of the environmentally friendly advancements in industry. OH, yeah and there's still that part about Global Warming not even being Humanity's fault anyways.
