    Global Wealth Can Heal the Planet

    Here. friends, is the REAL agenda of the summit:

    Bolivian president Evo Morales was interviewed by Al Jazeera television while in Copenhagen. “The principal obstacle to combating climate change is capitalism,” he explained. “Until we put an end to capitalism, it will continue to be a big obstacle for life and humanity.”

    Zimbabwean dictator Robert Mugabe proclaimed in a speech: “When these capitalist gods of carbon burp and belch their dangerous emissions, it’s we, the lesser mortals of the developing sphere, who gasp and sink and eventually die.”

    The big name in the anti-capitalism club was, of course, Hugo Chávez, the Venezuelan national-socialist strongman. In a typical stem-winder, he belched: “Capitalism is a destructive model that is eradicating life, that threatens to put a definitive end to the human species.”
    Global Wealth Can Heal the Planet by Jonah Goldberg on National Review Online

    Its not about saving the planet from global warming, its about making the world safe for Marxism/Socialism.

    Aside from that, the article makes all kinds of good points.
    Like:

    The historical record is clear: Democratic free-market nations are better at protecting their environments than statist regimes for the simple reason that they can afford to. West Germany’s environment was far cleaner than East Germany’s. I’d much sooner drink the tap water in South Korea than North Korea.

    Well, just when you think you have seen the stupidest thread ever, some one has to come along and top it. This is a shining example of a complete lack of logic. Because 1 man, from 1 of the 193 countries attending the summit said something, this must be the thoughts of all those attending. Brilliant! Keep up the good work here Goobie.

    I guess since we go down this road, we can take every quote from every conservative, and assume Goobie thinks the same thing. This could be fun!

    This post is over the top.

    You didn't even bother to read the post.
    If you had, you would not have posted what you did.

    But then, attacking the poster rather than responding to his message is usually what happens when the message cannot be countered.

    That doesnt really bother me -- if anything, His participation in that farce only weakens him politically, which is a good thing.

    The Obama's luster is wearing off. Perhaps He is not the Messiah that He was thought to be, by Himself and His followers.

    Given that - should I stop capitalizing His personal pronouns?

    Play it up a bit more. It'll be even funnier after His fall from grace.

    The OP posted comments from 3 world leaders. The link in the OP also said this:

    Also, if environmentalists want to avoid the “watermelon” charge (“green on the outside, red on the inside”), maybe the delegates and activists in the audience shouldn’t have given Chávez such a loud and boisterous round of applause? Perhaps the folks who gave him a standing ovation didn’t help either?

    Yup, now we've hit upon the ugly truth of the matter. It's not about pollution, or resources or anything else. It's all about the money. It's about wealthy countries paying tribute to the poor countries.

    You did listen to the Chavez speech and the response it evoked from the crowd...right?
