According to Tom Harris and Madhav Khandekar’s Commentary piece (“Blaming the developed world for the forces of nature,” Dec. 4), the U.N. climate conference has decided that starting in 2014 developed nations should pay $100 billion per year to underdeveloped nations to help these nations take action against climate change. Such an action is nothing less than global communism, or “take from the rich and give to the poor.” It appears the United Nations intends to transfer the wealth from the rich to the poor until all nations of the world enjoy the same economic base and hold hands as they march into the universe of equality. That’s all well and good — so long as the U.N. bigwigs raise the pay of the janitors in the U.N. building to equal their own.
