It's Rat Eat Rat at Carp & Hog-in [Updated]

For those too young to remember the teach-ins protesting the Vietnam War (I witnessed the very first), the same format was repeated by the same crowd to protest "ecological imperialism" a few years later (I attended that one too).

Thus, I tell you faithfully, the last part of bowdlerized Copenhagen -- Hog-in -- in this thread's title fits the Sinister Wingers who dragged the world to this pig fest. The carping part you already knew.

(Is it really an update when you go back and add an element you had intended to spell out the first time? But your old-timers-disease slipped in back then, and you only remembered later you had forgotten to add it? Because God sees the need for us to feel our humility on a daily basis?)

Anyway, the rats of the third world were envisioning a feast for them at the expense of the civilized world (I think the PC prefer to call it "the developed nations," but you know what's really behind their double-think, right? Right.). As can be seen below, the taxation of civilization "for the 'developing nations' (wink)," is really a way for the übermenschen to steal from their middle class. So now they're apparently also going to make life difficult (per the "Danish text") for the uncivilized rats too -- Hence, "Rat Eat Rat" -- as can be seen at the end of the quote below (where this wrinkle was spelled out in my comment highlighted in blue).

**** End Update ****

From Papa Ray at BC:
Copenhagen climate summit in disarray after 'Danish text' leak

Highlights furnished by Buddy Larsen:
“…world leaders will next week be asked to sign an agreement that hands more power to rich countries and sidelines the UN’s role in all future climate change negotiations.

The document is also being interpreted by developing countries as setting unequal limits on per capita carbon emissions for developed and developing countries in 2050; meaning that people in rich countries would be permitted to emit nearly twice as much under the proposals.

The so-called Danish text, a secret draft agreement worked on by a group of individuals known as “the circle of commitment” – but understood to include the UK, US and Denmark – has only been shown to a handful of countries since it was finalised this week.

The agreement, leaked to the Guardian, is a departure from the Kyoto protocol’s principle that rich nations, which have emitted the bulk of the CO2, should take on firm and binding commitments to reduce greenhouse gases, while poorer nations were not compelled to act. The draft hands effective control of climate change finance to the World Bank; would abandon the Kyoto protocol – the only legally binding treaty that the world has on emissions reductions; and would make any money to help poor countries adapt to climate change dependent on them taking a range of actions [nice gig you have going here Mr. Strongman: would be a shame were anything to happen to it]."  -- bracketed interpretation added by PtD
Buddy's candid(e) impression:
Words fail. w*o*r*d*s f*a*i*l. Horrors! Red Fascism! Why, how on earth can such a thing BE?
