EPIC FAIL: UN climate talks fall apart as 132 countries storm out

Poor countries pulled out of the United Nations climate talks during a fight over transferring wealth from richer countries to fight global warming.

The G77 and China bloc led 132 poor countries in a walk out during talks about “loss and damage” compensation for the consequences of global warming that countries cannot adapt to, like Typhoon Haiyan. The countries that left claim to have the support of other coalitions of poor nations, including the Least Developed Countries, the Alliance of Small Island States and the Africa Group.

Poor countries have demanded that the developed world give them $100 billion annually by 2020 to prepare for the impacts of global warming, such as heat waves and droughts. Brazil even put forward a proposal last week that would have made rich countries pay for historical greenhouse gas emissions.

“The US, EU, Australia and Norway remain blind to the climate reality that’s hitting us all, and poor people and countries much harder,” said Harjeet Singh, spokesperson for ActionAid International. “They continue to derail negotiations in Warsaw that can create a new system to deal with new types of loss and damage such as sea-level rise, loss of territory, biodiversity and other non-economic losses more systematically.”

It's a money grab ! They smell money ! Thx You Al Gore !!

Money?  All I see are Federal Reserve 'notes' and shiny metal planchetts.  No money,  Been GOING since 1913, and finally gone in 1964.

Absolutely right.

Generally, Americans are the most generous people on the planet with their gifts and fortunes.  We haven't changed in this, although we are under control of the huge banks and greedy politicians, therefore limited like we've never been in history.  We just don't have it to throw around.  WE must eliminate the baggage created by millions of illegal immigrants into this country.  This is a major problem which is stealing jobs from able and willing Americans.  It is also criminal and unconstitutional.  If anything, we are making hundreds of $$$ billions of contributions to the nation from whence these people come from already.

I would be open to supporting the lesser healed countries out of my pocket, but only if our government conjures up the political will to restore our economy first.  Bring back the jobs and abolish the FED Reserve, IRS, Payroll Taxes, Corporate Tax, Windfall Profits Tax, Death Tax, and put a 1/2% tax on the $1.5 quadrillion in annual commerce through predatory investment banks, securities markets, COMEX, Bond Market, and our economy will heal itself.  Then, and only then should we consider making any contributions to anyone or any countries. 


If we put govenrment in its proper place at its proper SIZE, there would be NO NEED for the taxes and agencies you cite.  Total return to the Constitution would result in a, once again, wealthy and powerful Country.

Oh, there is such a thing as global warming, however it is not as a result of our doing as the Liberals would have you believe. This earth is an ever changing entity. The depletion of the ozone layer which is the cause of global warming is a natural occurance. Those particles were put into the atmosphere by whatever caused the Ice Age. Before the Ice age, the planet was a tropical place. The Ice caps did not exist. As time goes on those particles settle out of the atmosphere. If we have anything to do with global warming it is neglegable and it's not something we are going to fix because the government says they can make a difference by collecting taxes from you and then increasing those taxes because it's not getting better and they could do it if they had more of your money!

They just discovered a VOLCANO under Antartica.  That's our fault, too, i guess!

Their attempt at extortion failed. Let's hope they keep up the idiocy and our politicos tell them to go jump in the lake.

Get the USA out of the UN, and Ship the UN out of the USA!

set up the UN on Gitmo good place for it

I second that Frank.

Where do they get the idea that the "richer" countries, owe the "poor" countries, environmental protection  Has Obama been making more promises?

Probably...Billary was globe hopping the whole time she was sec of st.....who knows what she did....we know at Benghazi she did nothing..but hey..that was Americans in trouble....

Pay-Back !!! Pedophile Who Assaulted Nearly 200 Kids Stabbed To Death In Prison

A convicted pedophile who abused almost 200 children was stabbed to death in North Yorkshire, England, on Sunday.

Richard Huckle, 33, from Ashford, Kent, was given 22 life sentences in 2016 after he admitted to sexually abusing 71 kids whose ages ranged from six months to 12 years between 2006 and 2014, according to the BBC.

The report said Huckle was attacked with a makeshift knife while inside his cell at the Full Sutton Prison.

At the pedophile’s trial in 2016, investigators said they found over 20,000 indecent photos and videos of his assaults, which were shared with other pedophiles via a site on the dark web called The Love Zone.

Reports said that prior to his arrest, Huckle posed as an English teacher and Christian volunteer worker in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where he groomed impoverished children.

In one of his online posts, Huckle reportedly wrote “Impoverished kids are definitely much easier to seduce than middle-class Western kids.”

Reports said he attempted to make money from his crimes by crowdfunding the release of the photos.

“Huckle also created a 60-page ‘how-to’ guide for other pedophiles seeking to evade being caught, and kept a scorecard and points system regarding the children who were abused — leading investigators to speculate he may have as many as 200 victims,” a Fox News report stated.

At his sentencing in 2016, Judge Peter Rook condemned Huckle for his heinous crimes he said had become routine for the pedophile.

Rook commented:

Your offending behavior became entrenched in your everyday life. Your life revolved around your sexual activities with young children. Your distorted beliefs in respect of children are deep-seated. Your self-delusion knows no bounds. It is also clear that, had you not been arrested, you planned to continue the same lifestyle using the expertise that you were keen to show off to and share with other abusers so as to continue your sexual exploitation of the children of such communities.

Reports said prior to his death, Huckle refused to cooperate with authorities when they tried to unlock a cache of encrypted files he had access to that may contain the names of victims and other pedophiles, according to Fox News.
