Even Swiss banks can't hold that much stolen money

'Africa seeks climate change cash

By Matt McGrath
BBC News science reporter

Africa is set to suffer the worst impacts of climate change

The leaders of 10 African countries are gathering in Ethiopia to try to agree a common position on climate change...'

I wonder what they'll come up with?

'...Proposals for discussion include the suggestion that developed countries should cut their emissions by at least 40% by 2020, and that the richer nations should provide funds of $67bn (£40bn) a year to help the least well off cope with the impacts of rising temperatures.'

I really actually laughed out loud when I read that. Given what happened to the previous $67 billion given to Africa 'to help the least well off', I foresee some truly enormous Swiss-bank account balances.
