The US and us

Bluntly, the Copenhagen Accord divides the world into ‘polluters’ and ‘beggars’. China, India, South Africa, Brazil and the like are being promised the right to pollute if they legitimize the right of the US and the rest to pollute. The rest of the world, apparently hungry for money, is promised funds for compliance. Remember how, the last night in CoP-15, the US and UK openly told the Maldives and Bangladesh they would not get money if the accord was not operationalized because of intransigent developing countries. In all this, it’s downright criminal there is just no clarity where this money will come, and when. Fictional money, riding on a dishonest bribe.
