These brave African nations are, however, selling themselves grossly short, by only demanding $67 billion (AUD?) dollars per year as climate reaparations from the polluters of the West. See:
Only 67 lousy billion dollars per annum? Who can we get to administer the spreading of this largesse, I wonder? Let's ask an Emminent Person, like former Prime Minister of Australia, Malcolm Fraser:
"I reckon that His Excellency President Field-Marshall Robert Mugabe is the One!"
OK, let's see whether Bob wants the job. Bob is well known for his economics, and ability to spend money wisely.
We need to assuage our collective responsibility to these poor Africans, suffering droughts, hurricanes, snow, rising sea levels, melting glaciers, and everything else that we polluters in the West are liable to account for. His Excellency, Mr Mugabe, is an excellent choice to administer the fund!
"Hey, Kuffir! I want a new Mercedes Benz! The old one has seen better days, and if I'm going to be a Big Wheel in distributing the environmental reparations, I need a better image!"
"Just look at what I have to put up with! You Kuffirs just don't appreciate how important image is to a Big Man in Africa!"
"In fact, this old one is so environmentally unsound, I was thinking of trading it in Cousin Obama's "Cash-for-Clumkers" program."
"Can you guys help me out here?"
Let's all get together, and make sure Bob gets the limousine that he really, truly deserves.
Perhaps a hybrid?
I mean, it's only $67 billion. Per year.
The poor of Africa are bearing the brunt of the evil West's profligate burning of fossil fuels, so we really need to get behind this notion of reparations.
$67 billion per year is just small change, when you look at the Wall Street bail-outs. Seriously small change, and I'm almost embarassed to put that into the collection plate this Sunday.
Surely we can band together, and help these climate-dispossessed Africans?

In a further climate disaster, billions of red Sockeye Salmon, (a perfect accompanyment to a cheeky French Chardonnay) have literally disappeared. Yep, you guessed it - Global Warming:
Not only are the poor and dispossessed having their lifestyles threatened by Global Warming, but so too are the polluters themselves.
Time to wake up! We need to stop climate change now!

So, as I understand, you have been praying to the Big Fella for 147 years, that this glacier would shrink?
And now, you come to me, seeking permission to change the OUTCOME sought from your prayers, that the glacier does not shrink, but in fact grows. Have I got this part correct?
We all know that the death gas, carbon dioxide, has caused all of the heating of the atmosphere and seas since the Industrial Revolution (and remember the gross pollution and child slavery that wonderful event brought us!), yet these "scientists" propose the deployment of 1,900 wind-powered ships to pump clouds into the atmosphere, in order to deflect sunlight.
See link, and especially note the picture: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/environment/globalwarming/5987229/Cloud-ship-scheme-to-deflect-the-suns-rays-is-favourite-to-cut-global-warming.html
"Wind powered"? I can't see a single bloody sail, can you?
These clowns deny the effect of not curtailing mankind's profligate use of fossil fuels, and are playing God with our children's future.
There is no alternative but to reduce carbon dioxide emissions to zero by 2020 at the latest, otherwise we will reach a tipping point of runaway global warming or cooling.
Schemes like this only derogate from the pressing need to completely curtail carbon emissions, and are likely to be clutched at by ignorant voters as a panacea to all problems.
Kaboom is completely disgusted by the sell-out by these denialist "scientists".

"The new $94 million jobs package will be made up of around 30,000 trainee and apprentice positions concentrating on "green skills" in building and construction; 10,000 jobs in a new National Green Jobs Corp; 6,000 local green jobs through the jobs fund, and the 4,000 people already working in the housing insulation program."
"The climate change sceptics constantly scare-monger about the possible loss of jobs through the transition of a lower carbon economy," he said.
"But they constantly fail to talk about the new clean energy jobs of the future which will arise from the introduction of the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme."
As always, Kaboom stands ready to help Dear Leader save our planet. Here, Kaboom "value-adds" the jobs potential of the Green Revolution five-fold, by a simple example:
The concept is both simple and elegant (as usual), and the five-fold employment opportunities are as follows:-
- When the petrol runs out because of Peak Oil, or because it has become so expensive that no-one besides environmental consultants can afford it, there will be millions of useless old "clunkers" (like the MINI Cooper S shown above) lying around rusting. Not only that, but there will be billions of people walking to work. The first employment opportunity will be for someone to cut these hulks of a past epoch in half, using carbon-friendly tools such as a hack-saw.
- Next, someone will be employed to smooth off the rough hacksawed edges, fabricate by hand the steps, and ensure that the end product meets all necessary safety requirements.
- Another person will be employed to remove the air-bags from the old clunkers, and insert these devices into the rear compartments used for the Greenshaw.
- Another person will be employed to hand fabricate (using recycled materials, NOT wood) the carrying frame of the Greenshaw.
- Finally, and most importantly, someone with the innate strength and green-savvy to pull the Greenshaw.
As you can see, by using a bit of Green ingenuity, we can massively redeploy employment to cure major social problems of (1) unwanted cars, (2) people having to walk, and (3) unemployment.
As we greenies like to say, "A win-win situation!"
It is climate-induced species migration which brings home to us all how much mankind is affecting all of Gaia's little creatures. Just contemplate the sad look on Bigfoot's face:
Coopenhagen CANNOT be delayed any further! Stop Climate Change now!
