Not Developing Nations
Posted by Jeff Condon on August 24, 2009
One of the most frustrating terms invented by the progressive movement is the term ‘Developing Nation’. In it implies the obviously false assumption that undeveloped nations have somehow been repressed or unlucky. Nothing could be farther from the truth. In fact, undeveloped nations are almost always the most totalitarian governments in existence. Cuba, Venezuela, Zimbabwe, Egypt, Iran, the success is proportional to the freedom of the people. You can’t sell cars to poor farmers making less than $1/day.
Well Africa finally stepped up to the climate change handout bag looking for 67 Billion dollars. Equivalent to 216 dollars from every American man woman and child to support the cause of climate change.
ADDIS ABABA, Aug 24 (Reuters) – African leaders will ask rich nations for $67 billion per year from 2020 to cushion the impact of global warming on the world’s poorest continent, according to a draft resolution seen by Reuters on Monday.
Environment and agriculture ministers from several nations are meeting at African Union (AU) headquarters in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa to try to agree a common stance before a U.N. summit on climate change in Copenhagen in December.
Experts say Africa contributes little to the pollution blamed for warming, but is likely to be hit hardest by the droughts, floods, heatwaves and rising sea levels forecast if climate change is not checked.
From the worlds Rich!!!! That’s you people, and a family of four in the us would fork over $800 for African’s development aspirations.
“This is the time for Africa to aggressively engage to ensure that climate change is effectively addressed,” Jean Ping, chairman of the AU Commission, told delegates.
“Africa’s development aspirations will be destroyed unless steps are taken to arrest the impact of climate change.”
The draft resolution, which must still be approved by the ministers, called for rich countries to pay at least $67 billion annually to counter the impact of global warming in Africa.
Development aspirations, if you have development aspirations, FREE THE PEOPLE!
Developing nations accuse the rich of failing to take the lead in setting deep cuts in greenhouse gas emissions, and say they are trying to get the poor to shoulder more of the burden of emission curbs without providing aid and technology.
BULL. It’s another opportunity to subsidize communism and Muslims in other countries while simulteneously adopting the same economy crushing policies the US. Well the Africans aren’t stupid are they, — ‘Show me the money!’
Here’s a list of countries working together on this resolution:Algeria, Democratic Republic of Congo, Kenya, Mauritius, Mozambique, Nigeria and Uganda.
