For all the damage the Wikileaks saga is doing, there is a silver lining. The insidious attempt by the Obama administration to seize control of the US economy based on climate-change, and the lengths to which it will go to facilitate it, is exposed as utterly corrupt and baseless....
From Guardian -- Hidden behind the save-the-world rhetoric of the global climate change negotiations lies the mucky realpolitik: money and threats buy political support; spying and cyberwarfare are used to seek out leverage.
The US diplomatic cables reveal how the US seeks dirt on nations opposed to its approach to tackling global warming; how financial and other aid is used by countries to gain political backing; how distrust, broken promises and creative accounting dog negotiations; and how the US mounted a secret global diplomatic offensive to overwhelm opposition to the controversial "Copenhagen accord", the unofficial document that emerged from the ruins of the Copenhagen climate change summit in 2009.
Negotiating a climate treaty is a high-stakes game, not just because of the danger warming poses to civilisation but also because re-engineering the global economy to a low-carbon model will see the flow of billions of dollars redirected.
Can we once and for all dispel the notion that the industrious activities of man have anything at all to do with the overall climate? If man-made climate change was real, the hand-wringing Obama administration wouldn't have to dig up dirt on, black-mail, and cajole other nations into pretending that it's real too.
The rottenness and malfeasance of the Obama administration and it's craven attempts to control the US economy based on a complete hoax hatched in the deranged, patchouli-addled brain of Al Gore is breathtaking.
