A Mindless Montage of Beliefs all Around, like being a Pro-Choice Vegan Pet Owner Wearing Uggs

Nag, nag, nag, nag.

In Brussels, European Union officials have grown increasingly frustrated at the US stance, saying it has fallen short on both its level of ambition to reduce emissions and on offering aid to developing nations.

“So far, we thought the basic problem was the Chinese and the Indians. But now I think the problem appears to lie most clearly with the US,” a European Commission official said. Talks were “not going well”.

European officials say the Obama administration lacks focus because its top talent is wrapped up in the all-consuming debate over healthcare.
So Osama bin forgotten again, eh?

But the European delegation appears to be turning the appearance of the situation around. Having been permanently pussy-whipped by NGOs as these Europeans are, with a larger GDP than the US, they trying to look like they’re speaking truth to power and imply that the US government is cheap, thoughtless, hates the poor, etc. with resembles a kind of tongue in cheek irony of a drunk trying to talk his way out of being pulled over for running a red.
EU criticised for 'inadequate' climate fund
Civil society groups worry that if the West does not stump enough cash for adaptation and mitigation, any global climate deal is off

EUOBSERVER / BRUSSELS - The European Commission has proposed that the EU pay as little as €2 billion a year to fund third world carbon reduction measures and adaptation to unavoidable climate change.
Climate finance for the third world has become the main focus of discussion in the lead-up to the Copenhagen climate change summit in December. If the EU and US stump up significant chunks of cash for cutting emissions and climate adaptation, developing countries may in return commit to considerable CO2 reductions, even though it is the industrialised north that is responsible for most of the emissions that caused the problem.
Look, that butch act might work in the bushes at the park, but a certain bulging plain manila envelope has been forgotten.
Last December at the UN climate talks in Bali, Indonesia, the EU committed to such monies, but it was only today for the first time that the EU executive has proposed any specific figures.
So over the past year, unspecific figures have been transmitted to some fashionably poor society? Will the wonders of their love of humanity ever end?
The EU "will not and cannot bankroll the negotiations alone," Dimas said.
Which sounds a lot better that saying that even though you think it’s a Star Trek like planetary emergency, you haven’t thrown in a centime.
