Protests at Commuhagen are continuing, it’s a bit confusing who’s protesting and why but this article clears it all up.
COPENHAGEN — Police officers fired tear gas and wielded batons on Wednesday to beat back hundreds of demonstrators outside the global climate meeting here, as a police spokesman said 250 people had been arrested.
A hundred thousand conservatives march on Washington and get no press but this is headline news across the world with more coverage than climategate.
In Wednesday’s demonstrations, the largest so far of the conference, the protesters began massing north of the center shortly before noon and pressed into a tight line of riot police blocking access to the hall. Some of the officers wielded truncheons against the chanting, shoving protesters in a close-order scrum. News agencies reported that tear gas was fired at the crowd. After forcibly removing protesters from a truck parked in an intersection outside the Bella Center, police in blue vans kept moving the protesters backwards, nearly pushing some into a watery marsh.
Here’s the ungodly stupid plan and the problem.
Much of the focus on Wednesday was expected to be on the financing arrangements of the deal, under which industrialized nations would transfer billions of dollars annually to poor nations to help them cope with a changing climate.
How much money they want.
Norway and Mexico have also offered a financing plan, which envisions annual payments to developing countries substantially higher than the $10 billion annual figure that Mr. Obama said the United States would support in the near term.
Developing countries have said that they will need $100 billion to $200 billion a year by 2020 to pay for low-carbon energy development and adaptation to global warming changes.
And those involved.
Outside the hall, police searched the bags of potential protesters and watched warily as crowds began to gather at rail stops within walking distance of the Bella Center.
Mette Hermansen, 27, studying to train teachers, and a member of the International Socialists of Denmark, said, “In the Bella Center they are not discussing solutions to climate change. They are discussing how rich countries can continue emitting and how to sell that to the public. We are not preventing leaders from making solutions but encouraging them to make solutions.”
So America, your president offered 10 billion US dollars – per year. Consider that Nasa has like a 17 billion dollar budget. But that was not enough, they want 200 billion by 2020 – that’s per year. To prop up communist countries in the third world and help them go green.
So 10 billion divided by 350 million – Is only 28 dollars per man woman and child in america per year. A family of four would pay $112 USD to developing nations each year under obama’s plan by 2020, in addition to economy crushing CO2 emission promises, you will have paid $1120 to developing nations!! Of course developing nations is a pretty word for religious dictatorships and communist countries which cannot develop due to corrupt repressive government. But that’s not enough- no sir not enough! They would like to receive a figure 20 times higher than that or they will pull out of the deal.
And some young media brainwashed adults, who are under the mind-numbingly ignorant impression that socialism must work somewhere, are protesting.
