Best of Day One at Paris Climate Summit

cimate

Proceedings got off to a shaky start at the Paris Climate Summit yesterday when protesters desecrated a memorial to terror victims, even going as far as throwing memorial candles at police. That really got on Guido’s wick…

Such deranged antics were small beer compared with the genuine wrong ‘uns who turned up today. Robert Mugabe kicked things off with an anti-capitalist rant expressing his “dismay” at the “miserly” developed countries that burden the developing world without “cleaning up the mess they themselves have created”. That put the iPhone-wielding, Starbucks-slurping protesters to shame…

That’s the same Mugabe whose agricultural reforms led to hyperinflation of 250 million percent. Please, tell us more about your plan for the environment…

Then came Bolivia’s Evo Morales, who readers will remember has spoken recently of the need to eradicate the “capitalist system of death”:

“Mother Earth is getting close to the end and the capitalist system is partly responsible for that. Capitalism has fostered and introduced and driven forward over the past 200 years the most savage and destructive formula against our species….Today we have a unique and historic responsibility with Mother Earth. Let us express our concern with the dramatic effects of climate change that threaten Pachamama”

Pachamama is is a fertility goddess that embodies Mother Earth, long revered in Inca mythology and by the indigenous people of the Andes. Nice to see the summit give a platform to rational and scientific arguments…

Quote of the Day

Logging company Resolute’s CEO Richard Garneau suing Greenpeace

“A funny thing happened when Greenpeace and allies were forced to account for their claims in court. They started changing their tune. Their condemnations of our forestry practices “do not hew to strict literalism or scientific precision,” as they concede in their latest legal filings. Their accusations against Resolute were instead “hyperbole,” “heated rhetoric,” and “non-verifiable statements of subjective opinion” that should not be taken “literally” or expose them to any legal liability. These are sober admissions after years of irresponsible attacks.”
