Wonderful wonderful Copenhagen

Developing and island nations don't believe they're getting enough money in Copenhagen. Which says it all really. They don't protest in the streets because of rising sea levels or warmer temperatures. They protest in the streets because they don't believe USD$10 billion per year is enough cash. And, of course, it won't be because you can't go on about sea levels rising by six metres and ice shelves collapsing, and then only donate a $10 shopping voucher. This biggest ever fear campaign - bigger than SARS, AIDS, Y2K, and Swine Flu - will be accompanied by the biggest ever wealth transfer in the history of mankind from the world's leading democracies to some of the world's leading cleptocracies! The Swiss bankers will be very busy!

There is something rotten in the state of Denmark!
