I was reviewing BBC's page on the Copenhagen Summit (just now) and it was a very frustrating because this conference is about concrete actions, the talks should have been done before (!!!), and something legally binding should have been produced to discipline these countries!
I'm deeply concerned because if institutions fall, I might not make my speech in front of the United Nations! Seriously!
Loren Legarda said that the Philippines is included in the top 10 countries than can be devastated badly in case of climate meltdown, and believe me people, that event is not very far.
Haiti, Peru and China were hit by earthquakes. I don't want to sound like a scientist here and speak of data I partly understand, but these evident changes can be lethal if ignored. It's not enough for US, Britain or France to send donations.
Ian Fry, Tulavu's Lead Negotiator, was right when he said that "I've watched how the G8 monopolize or oligarch-ized decision processes just to protect their own interests, and the capitalists in their countries.
Thanks to these blatant obstructions by big emitting countries, islands like Maldives and the Philippines might sink so i'm trying to convince my dad in creating a floating house and selling it to the market. Haha!
It is true than when adversities come, a lot of people will take the chance to rise up and exploit other people. And it's just frightening what might happen when political tensions are at its worst.
The least thing that may happen is Japan (with their advanced army) invading (let's say) Mongolia because water levels are so high that their islands have sunk. World War III anyone?
These countries are capable of waging wars! And there's your reason why these G8 countries are so confident in continuing their treacherous acts against the people and the next generation!
