This is what Copenhagen is all about, Charlie Brown:

I saw an interview on BBC the other morning with the Sudanese Ambassador speaking for the G33 bloc of "developing" nations (essentially China, India and Brazil and a gaggle of 3rd World mini-states and odd dictatorships) and he made it pretty clear. They want 100 Billion a year to "clean up their act" and they want the tech to do it, for free. And we have to cut our emissions by 30%...and if they don't get the bribe money, they'll go on clear-cutting the rain forests, burning all the coal they can get their hands on, and dumping their mining waste wherever they please, and it will all be our fault for being greedy capitalists.

Oh, and when the interviewer asked him about Darfur, he said the UN report was nonsense...but he was happy to accept the IPCC report. Copenhagen is a global cap-and-tax shakedown, nothing more.
