This has been obvious for a while. If not for the MSM ignoring the likes of Climategate while actively promoting AGW nonsense, this enduring socialist scheme to transfer a massive redistribution of wealth from developed nations to poor nations in order to “equalize” the USA and other Western nations with those poor nations would be dropped like a hot tater. The left likes to pretend the difference between US/Western nations and undeveloped ones is due to our imperialism and cultural hegemony – gee, I wonder if they study Antonio Gramsci everywhere today – while ignoring traits such as ambition, hard work, independence, optimism, inventiveness, religious freedom, strong families and an economy that rewards products/ideas society wants and rejecting those we don’t.
The USA is blessed with abundant natural resources that some poor countries lack but that’s no excuse for failure. Before the xenophobia and silly socialist policies – e.g, feminism, enviro, and poor economic measures of quantitative easing and debt, overtook Japan to destroy their demographics, that nation was a world beacon for capitalism success. The left always works to endow successful democracies with guilt or victimization, in Japan’s case it was both.
The next time someone tries to shut you up – that’s the lefty way of dealing with dissension – with that old tired 97% canard, the first thing to do is ask them which 97% study and have them explain the validity of the research behind that specific study. They all stink.

The best thing about this? Greenies/lefties point to the gov’t as authoritative climate source info. Hah, these are the same people who formerly based their AGW “proof” on a lone gov’t scientist – James Hansen – who said the Bush admin was lying about climate and preventing his dissenting voice from being heard. Greenies seemed not to notice the hypocrisy of one scientist sucking the air out of the gov’t data; quick, can you name a Bush gov’t scientist other than the surly self-righteous Hansen? Me either but I know the rest of NOAA/gov’t scientists declared Hansen was the outlier and had little respect for him. https://stevengoddard.wordpress.com/2015/09/17/noaa-massively-ramps-up-their-temperature-fraud-ahead-of-paris/
The Scotsman is a lefty newspaper. AGW is a lie, recycling is a lie – except perhaps for West coast companies close to Asian companies that pay poor people pennies to go through the crap and a very few local industries in other parts of the US – and renewables are a lie. Nothing biodegrades in modern landfills anymore since they all use extreme compression techniques and the solar/windfarm industries are simply massive subsidies to reward cronies. http://www.scotsman.com/news/comment-renewables-drain-our-resources-1-3659067
Readers will no doubt remember the scandalous tale of WWF thugs attacking forest peoples in Cameroon. But apparently it doesn’t stop there. French TV station Canal Plus has recently uncovered widespread human rights abuses in the WWF-sponsored Kanha Tiger Reserve in India. There’s a transcript of the programme here
