Tensions Cause The Chief Negotiator For The G77 To Walk Out of COP15 Meeting at Copenhagen

     According to the Copenhagen Post, The G-77 walked out of the negotiations at Copenahagen because of tensions between developing and developed countries. I just recently finished my last final in my college class called The Other World, which in fact covered the very topic of both developing and developing countries and whether the West is imposing cultural imperialism on the develping countries . Some people believe that the problem is external and that the West, or the Developed nations are using the developing countries for their own profit while others believe that the problem lies internally within the developed countries. I know some of the environmentalist's policies, like banning DDT have caused an extreme amount of harm to Africans. Malaria is one of the leading cause of deaths in the world, but especially in Africa. DDT kept malaria under control before the environmental nutjobs lied about the so-called harmful effects from DDT. Now, due to the environmentalist's policies a massive amount of Africans have died from Malaria.Here is information on Malaria: http://www.cdc.gov/malaria/impact/index.htm



        I don't know whose fault it is that the developing countries and its people are suffering so much and are lagging behind the rest of the world, but I believe that we should help these countries build their infrastructures and help with various other projects so that they may have thriving economies. But, I also believe that we cannot help these countries forever. The developing countries must start doing more things for themselves and leaders must stop taking advantage of the poor in order to line their own pockets with money. The Developed countries must not enable the developing countries so that they think they are entitled to aid without making much progress in the area of economic growth.  The developed countries must put more pressure on the leaders of the developing countries to stop the corruption because if the corruption doesn't stop, then the cycle of poverty within the developing countries will continue. This is definitely a very complicated set of issues that both the developing and developed countries face today.

But, since negotiations are in turmoil, maybe this is a good sign for us people who know the truth about man-made global warming being a hoax? Hopefully, the talks will break down further and nothing will be signed in Copenhagen? Maybe, the developing countries will be our heroes if in the end the Copenhagen Treaty is not signed?  I hope so.


Here is the article: Tension between developing and developed countries builds as climate summit enters its fifth day
The chief negotiator for 134 developing nations left the UN Climate Change Conference (COP15) yesterday in anger.
Lumumba Stanislaus Di-Aping from Sudan, the G77 group’s top negotiator, is also accusing Denmark of driving the climate summit into the ground.
‘Things are not going well,’ he said after walking out from an hour-long negotiation. ‘It’s very problematic that there’s a different agenda running alongside the official UN process,’ Di-Aping told Politiken newspaper.
When asked to elaborate on those comments, he said:

’Your prime minister has chosen to protect the rich countries, and that’s not ok,’ referring to Denmark’s Lars Løkke Rasmussen
‘If the Copenhagen summit ends in failure, the whole Scandinavian multilateral tradition will be jeopardised. What your prime minister is doing is completely against the spirit of the foreign aid Denmark and the Danish people have given to Africa for so many years,’ said Di-Aping.
The G77 group represents 134 mainly developing countries, including China, Indonesia and Argentina.
COP15 President Connie Hedegaard, Denmark’s former climate minister, has refused to comment on the case.

Hi Teresa: This is a great link and great breaking news. I've been posting lots of video's about this all week.

You also have some very good ideas here. With all your studies, I think you should go there and represent our interests...you'd do a MUCH better job that obummer and his lying weenies.
Happy Weekend.

Teresa said...

Bi Bunni: How are you doing? Thanks for your confidence in me. If I could find a job doing something like that, I would accept it in a heart beat. I will add links to your site soon. Yesterday, I was exhausted from studying for my last final and the lack of sleep, so I didn't do too much after finishing my final.

Have a great weekend!

What else could "we" throw into this fire? I know ... let's tell them that ZERO wants to be their King.

Snarky Basterd said...

Frankly, India and China are moving right and we are moving left, so I'm not really sure our "values" mean anything there anymore.

Now ... Africa? Yeah ... give them the DDT. I hope Rachel Carson rots in hell for all the death she's caused.

Pouring money into third world countries is pure folley and the only result is to line the pockets of the strong men there and their friends and make the doner countries feel good. These people will have to pick themselves up. Private companies contribute more to the growth of the countries than any govenment handouts can ever do.

I think we are out of money and really can not help them with aid. But we can give them the freedom to develop. When you say to a poor African all you can have is wind and solar power, you are saying they can not have industry. They can't run steel mills and factories with solar power, they do not have enough money for that. The eco fascist are in effect keeping them down.

They do have their share of problems from within, but the geenies have made things much worse.

Odie,
They might like that since Obama's father was from Kenya.

Teresa said...

Snarky,
Rachel Carson must have been channeling the devil when lying about DDT. This action has caused many deaths.

Teresa said...

Ron,
Your right. Private companies can help more than our government can. There needs to be incentives for companies to add locations in Africa.

Teresa said...

Trestin,
Your right. The eco fascists are effectively keeping the Africans poor.

Thank you for the Hat/Tip, Teresa! You are a great friend and always post the most informative things as well! I took a break and posted funnies today! All this bad news being shoved on us daily is giving me headaches! Enjoy your weekend and Congrats on finishing all your exams, With A 's I'm sure.

Teresa,

You're completely right. For Africa to become more prosperous, it needs plentiful and inexpensive energy. This means that they need to use fossil fuels.

The green revolution will make energy more scarce, thus more expensive. This will cripple Africa's already fragile development.

But the magnanimous leaders of the Left will claim that they are saving Africans from the environmental apocalypse (so what does their continued poverty matter?), ignoring the patronizing, condescending and demeaning nature of their own actions.
