Hillary Clinton will head to Copenhagen

By Ed O'Keefe

By Steven Mufson in our blog, Post Carbon:

Just in case there weren't enough policy star power in Copenhagen, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton plans to attend the climate conference, according to sources with non-governmental organizations at the conference.

Clinton plans to travel on Wednesday and take part in negotiations on Thursday, a day before President Obama is due to arrive. She has booked a full day of meetings on Thursday and will join Obama once he arrives.

Why the Secretary of State? The top U.S. negotiator at the conference, Todd Stern, hangs his hat at the State Department. And the U.S. position on climate change has been a central issue in relations with other nations, especially in Europe, which has been pressing for an accord.

I don't believe for one second any of these countries are truly concerned with global warming, especially the poor nations out there. It ALL has to do with getting money from prosperous nations into their pockets. If we provide them with the funding to help resolve the problem, I am sure 90% of it would end up in somebody’s pockets, instead of the intended use. I’ll bet everything I have if we were to provide the “services” to assist them without any cash they would tell us to buzz off!

It ALL has to do with the new “wealth re-distribution” crap that keeps coming up every where. What they don’t realize is if we were to re-distribute all the money to all people, in about 10yrs time, all the money would be right back in the hands of the smart people!! Why I say this? The average person is stupid and spends their money instead of investing or saving it. Bottom line; the smart gets rich and the dumb ass do all the work! You see, we are ALL NOT created equal.
