Getting Out of Saving the World
Yesterday it was announced that a coalition of African and developing countries had managed to get Zimbabwe Voted in as head of the Sustainable Development commission despite the terrible human rights abuses, the fact it's agriculture is in tatters and it can't even feed it's self. Add to this the fact that the Zimbabwe minister for the environment is not even allowed to travel to Europe due to sanctions and this effectively cripples the commission and this at a time when it's work to reduce CO2 emissions is at the top of the international agenda.
Africa and associated "Developing countries" claim that this is them standing up against the bullying of the west. It could of course all just be a conspiracy to avoid taking the necessary but possibly painful actions required to reduce global emissions.
