So the vast
“show and photo opportunity” meeting in Copenhagen is coming to an end now and could someone please tell what has actually been achieved in this huge media event.
A 3 page document with some teasers but now clear road-map on who-does-what-and-when. The talks on atomic weapons between the U.S. and Russia that happened at the same venue might prove to be more outcome oriented then that other show.
Will the bankster be allowed to expand their casino games with derivatives / virtual money creation for them to the so-called “Cap & Trade” certificates and thereby will most certainly create a world-wide crisis that will be bigger by orders of magnitude than the current financial crisis?
Will someone start to limit the global levels of pollution instead of fostering opaque trading schemes that are only good for story telling and profiteering – read: the industrialized nations reduced their pollutions – e.g. by 30% while at the same time the polluters have just shifted those factories somewhere else where these are then for whatever reason not counted into the scheme?
Will the whole thing like in other areas e.g. pandemics be handled by some kind of fund or financial instrument that in the past have regularly proven to be the most inefficient way, without any accountability or actual transparency, blowing money on themselves and their buddies, often institutionalized corruption and rates as bad as US$ 1000 put in and a mere US$10 arriving at the actual cause?
Well let’s see what the soon to happen next meeting in Berlin will bring. We haven’t given up hope completely and we know there are some people in Germany that actually would like to implement some measures that would most likely work.
For now it might be another wasted opportunity and in an opaque environment like this where hopes are high by some to make incredibly huge profits never seen before and others slowly realizing that some change at least must happen soon, we thought maybe the following songs better describe the differences between some of the “special interest groups” at-work here:
We leave it up to our readers to decide which of these groups most likely will succeed putting their agenda through – in a world which since a few years is best described by limitless greed, loss of almost all ethics and disrespect for value, knowledge and experience together with government protected organized crime popping up anywhere big.
Janis Joplin’s great song – Mercedes Benz
“…Oh Lord, won’t you buy me a Mercedes Benz
My friends all drive Porsches, I must make amends.
Worked hard all my lifetime, no help from my friends,
So Lord, won’t you buy me a Mercedes Benz…”
Zarah Leander – Ich weiss es wird einmal ein Wunder geschehn
“…Ich weiß, es wird einmal ein Wunder geschehn
und dann werden tausend Märchen wahr…
…Und darum wird einmal ein Wunder geschehn
und ich weiß, daß wir uns wiedersehn!”
translated: “…I know one day a miracle will happen
and then a thousand fairy tales will come true…
…And that’s why a miracle will happen
and I know that we meet again!”
Mack The Knife (original)
“…Und die einen sind im Dunkeln
Und die anderen sind im Licht
Doch man sieht nur die im Lichte
Die im Dunklen sieht man nicht…”
translated: “…There are some who are in darkness
And the others are in light
And you see the ones in brightness
Those in darkness drop from sight…”
“Mack the Knife” or “The Ballad of Mack the Knife”, originally “Die Moritat von Mackie Messer”, is a song composed by Kurt Weill with lyrics by Bertolt Brecht for their music drama Die Dreigroschenoper, or, as it is known in English, The Threepenny Opera
There is also a wonderful version of the song by Louis Armstrong

The climate and development organization Germanwatch has today published its Global Climate Risk Index 2010. The Global Climate Risk Index analyzes to what extent countries have been affected by the impacts of weather-related loss events (storms, floods, heatwaves etc.).
The Global Climate Risk Index (CRI) developed by Germanwatch analyzes the quantified impacts of extreme weather events in terms of people that have died from them, as well as economic losses that occurred. It is based on data from Munich Re´s Nat-CatSERVICE® which is one of the most reliable and complete data bases on this matter. While it does not take into account aspects such as sea-level rise or glacier melting, climate change is an increasingly important factor for the occurrence and intensity of these events. The CRI can therefore provide an indication of levels of exposure and vulnerability to extreme events which countries should see as a warning signal to prepare for more severe events in the future. The fifth edition of the CRI looks particularly at the impacts of extreme weather events from 1990 up until the most recent available data – 2008…
UK newspaper The Guardian has a gallery of eight paintings created by the Bangladesh government and NGOs to teach people in rural Bangladesh about climate change and how to adapt to it.
Like in other areas or countries around the world populated mainly by people who can’t read or write, screenplays, songs and dramas are used to communicate the change…
The UK branch of Greenpeace has put a model of an ideal city of the future online. The virtual town called “EfficienCity” shows with animations, videos and lots of information how a climate friendly city might look like. It generates its own energy decentralized from local renewable resources vs. receiving it from a centralized grid of nuclear or coal power plants. Greenpeace uses this Sim-City of Energy to demonstrate a way to lower greenhouse gas emissions, towards a more secure energy supply, cheaper electricity and heating bills and a whole new attitude towards energy…
Some more facts about “those leaked climate change emails” that have mobilized all those figures now claiming there’s nothing to be frightened about – its all a “scam” – you name it – well you know – just carry on watching TV – you know like the GOOOOOD people.
Yes Bernie that’s how you got those 50 billions but we’re not sure that this also works with mass manipulation.
And in completely unrelated news by these maSS-manipulators – the leading industrial nations – might be again announced during the Copenhagen photo opportunity – have agreed to shell out USD 10 Billions per year to fight those “non-existing” threats to human race on this planet – providing those monies to countries who are hardest hit by climate change – small island states – developing countries with long and low coast lines – i.e. BangLadesh – but don’t worry – nothing to fear here – move on – and if that won’t help – well there is still “duck and cover” that worked so well in the 1950s with the atomic bribery…
