Communism by other means
'Social justice demands that the industrialised world digs deep into its pockets and pledges cash to help poorer countries adapt to climate change, and clean technologies to enable them to grow economically without growing their emissions.... And fairness requires that the burden placed on individual developed countries should take into account their ability to bear it; for instance newer EU members, often much poorer than "old Europe", must not suffer more than their richer partners.'
Quote from the Guardian,
If that sounds like communism rather than environmentalism, you would be entirely correct. I am now firmly convinced that that is what underlies what is going on at Copenhagen- not some kind of settled climatic science.
