Today the World Speaks as One

With all eyes turning to Copenhagen this morning the world is hoping for a result that the planet can live with coming out of the Climate talks. 56 papers in 45 countries covering 20 languages (incudung Chinese, Russian and Arabic) including our own Guardian have taken the unprecedented step of carrying a common editorial, many have also moved it to their front page.

I'll let you read it for yourself, but I'll also direct you to the story of how this project came about.

  1. It doesn't speak for me or the other sceptics about the AGW scam. This is about taxation and wealth distribution not about environmentalism. How else do you explain 20,000 delegates descending on Denmark – representatives of 192 countries with entourages of dozens, a myriad of 5000 mesmerised journalists and 45,000 Greenies all jetting in for a jolly – the Copenhagen carbon footprint will take years to undo. The UN has confirmed flights, rail and bus travel, food and energy from the conference will generate at least 41,000 tons of carbon dioxide. That's more greenhouse gas than produced by Malawi, Afghanistan or Sierra Leone over the same period.

    Hypocrisy, sheer hypocrisy, so please don't assume you're speaking for me or the majority of the UK who smell a very large green rat here.
