Climate Deal: Show me the money!

Everybody who imagined himself anybody raced to Copenhagen last year for the global-warming summit, renamed "climate change" when the globe began to cool, as it does from time to time. Some 45,000 delegates, "activists," business representatives and the usual retinue of journalists registered for the party in Copenhagen. This year, only 1,234 journalists registered for the Cancun beach party. The only story there is that there's no story there. The U.N. organizers glumly concede that Cancun won't amount to anything, even by U.N. standards.

Cancun Beach
How much is the taxpayer spending to send our state funded media to Cancun?

Looks like several American heavy hitters are missing an opportunity to hit the beach.

Left wing think tank Pembina Cancun Briefing note here.
An amount “approaching” US$30 billion in “new and additional resources” from 2010 to 2012, “with a balanced allocation between and mitigation.”
• A goal of “mobilizing jointly USD 100 billion dollars a year by 2020,” with the funding coming from a variety of
sources (including “alternative” sources).7

Anyone think building new factories in China and Brazil with our taxes is a good ideas still?

In Ontario we are diverting millions to put up Giant Fans in the country and install giant mirrors so special interest groups and Energy companies can have unsustainable profits for twenty years.

Ontario Liberal Government is planning to spend almost $87 billion. We are creating an unsustainable burden to the individual taxpayer and business, fail to improve our power generation,transfer capacity and drive in the pursuit of a Green Economy.
