I’m watching the climate conference in Copenhagen with great anger, mostly because I’m just feeling confirmed that the manhood is simply stupid. Not individuals on their own, but if they’re organized and have to go into the one, the only right direction, they’re completly dumb. I mean, how many homeless, how many dead people do we have to count before everyone, and I really mean everyone, acts in concert?
Sadly, this won’t happen in one, five or even ten years. Maybe within the mid of this century, when there have been enough Tsunamis, Hurricanes and Typhoons killing people, and enough floods, ground erosion and slash-and-burn have taken place and have wiped out enough farmland to let the remaining poor people die on hunger, then maybe some leaders will open their eyes and come to the conclusion “We’ve fucked up in Copenhagen ’09″.
Update: I’ve stumbled across a noteworthy article of The Guardian from Mark Lynas about the conference and the blocking position of China:
[...] China’s growth, and growing global political and economic dominance, is based largely on cheap coal. China knows it is becoming an uncontested superpower [...] Its coal-based economy doubles every decade, and its power increases commensurately. Its leadership will not alter this magic formula unless they absolutely have to. [...]
History tells us that a single human life – or even hundreds or thousands of them – doesn’t count much in China. I expect this won’t change in the future.
