Although I take most FOX NEWS stories with a pretty big pinch of salt, this one definitely got my attention.
A $100 BILLION annual fund that wants complete immunity from all laws (including civil and criminal) in regards to what it spends its money on?
And they want a guarantee that whatever country they end up in will adher to this immunity?
In other words, give us $100 billion a year, which we MIGHT put towards lowering global emmissions, but hey, we might just all buy Ferraris and
apartments on the Lower East Side or fund nuclear weapons research in North Korea or send a few billion worth of weapons to terrorist groups and
there's diddley squat that anyone can do about it.
I'd think that EVERYONE should keep a close eye on this one. I'm predicting that this is going to be another money pit of taxpayers' money, with
no tangible results reports. We definitely need to keep a very close eye as to who gets put in charge of this group.
$100 billion a year to do what you like with? SIGN ME UP !
I'll say whatever it takes for that sort of funding. Of course, you know that this money will go towards funding those scientists that say that
global warming is man made, in the face of any sort of legitimate science that might even slightly detract from showing this.
It's also interesting to me that this comes right at the same time that "about 160 years of meteorogical data" since about 1850 are being
"reevaluated". What's the betting that any data showing any sort of cooling trends will mysteriously disappear?
