Climate extortion

From the BBC: Ministers from 10 African countries have met in Ethiopia to try to agree a common position on climate change, months before a crucial UN meeting.

More precise: they’ve been discussing how to guilt Western countries into handing over more cash to prop up the mostly dysfunctional regimes in that benighted continent.

They were expected to renew demands for billions of dollars in compensation for Africa because of damage caused by global warming.

And they are likely to ask rich nations to cut emissions by 40% by 2012.

Says Kenyan environmentalist Wangari Maathai:

We are all hoping we will develop and attain a higher quality of life

I just bet you do…
