Here’s a trade-press headline from this morning:
South African warning on Copenhagen — ‘No money, no deal’
Uh . . . OK.
But seriously. That’s adorable. And it would be politely ignored in any world except one in which the U.S. president is desperate to make pointless international (and transnationalist) gestures.
That being the case, it’s fair to say that international rent-seekers see us coming — and plan to milk you U.S. taxpayers for all that they can get. Because, you know, we cause the weather now. The government says so.
