The meetings in Copenhagen are not about climate change. They are about redistribution of wealth. The vast majority of the nations of the world are poor, and when they attend gatherings such as this, their primary concern is receiving more aid (“Climate talks begin in Copenhagen,” Web, World, Dec. 7).

Having worked as a volunteer lobbyist at the United Nations for seven years, I witnessed how the delegates won’t want to talk with anyone unless they are in a position to provide financial assistance (i.e., welfare). We are seeing the same situation right now in Denmark.

These “developing” countries are taking advantage of the opportunity to demand that they be compensated by the rich nations for the “suffering” they must endure because of our supposedly excessive carbon emissions. Never mind the fact that our industrialization has blessed them for generations with greater access to technology, products and services that they could not produce or provide themselves.

Their adamant refusal to sign any global resolution unless they obtain the foreign aid they want indicates where their hearts are. They do not care about the well-being of the Earth but about the free money they hope to get.
