I came across an article that just happen to discuss three of my favorite pet peeves (global warming, UN, and wealth distribution). How in the world could I NOT comment on it!
The myway.com site was putting up an AP article (press to read) that, in a nutshell, says that the UN feels America should pay the poor countries to compensate for the losses they will endure due to the effects of global warming. It goes on to state, that since America is a rich country, and since America contributes to global warming but the poor countries do not, America should cough up the dough.
What a joke.
First of all, the entire discussion of global warming as it pertains to being caused by human beings is still in flux. Oh, I know that the mainstream media outlets have accepted this lie and are so unwilling to consider the alternative (that it is part of a natural warming/cooling cycle) that they spew this garbage to the (at best) uneducated and (at worse) the lazy. But, the bottom line is that there is not a global agreement amongst the scientific community on this THEORY, and the continued movement to adjust our actions is ridiculous.
My biggest problem with this, however, is the thought that America should be the Mother Theresa to the world. I’m so sick of this idea that at times I want to scream at the ceiling, fully aware that it would have the same impact as if I were somehow able to discuss this matter to people that could make a change: absolutely nothing.
We have so focused on others, that we have forgotten our own. Real problems are occurring in America that need attention (the loss of our manufacturing expertise, the weakening dollar, more and more socialized agendas, and the monstrosity of government just to mention a few). Our foundation as a country is crumbling underneath us and we’re actually talking about carbon-trading as a mechanism for providing capital to developing countries.
For the life of me, I just do not know why we continue to support this farce called the UN.
Bring me a bucket. My lunch is coming back up…
