Obama Administration's 'Diplo-Dippiness' Over Climate ChangeTopics: Political News and commentaries
As Chris Horner points out at American Spectator, we learned yesterday from the WaPo how Mexico President Calderon is focused first and foremost on the minutiae of 'global warming', over other minor issues like a civil war raging with bazooka-toting drug lords. Not exactly putting one's efforts on the most pressing problem.
Today, ClimateWire reports:
NEGOTIATIONS: Leaked cables show U.S. pressured Saudis to accept Copenhagen Accord (11/30/2010)As is the case with Mexico's president Calderon putting climate change ahead of saving his country from civil war and being taken over by bazooka-toting drug lords, the Obama administration puts climate change over saving the planet from radical Islamists blowing up the world with nuclear weapons.
The Obama administration leaned heavily on Saudi Arabia to associate itself with the Copenhagen Accord climate change agreement, confidential State Department memos show.
The handful of climate-related cables -- among the hundreds of thousands of secret and unclassified messages released by the whistle-blower organization Wikileaks -- show the United States put climate change at the center of its foreign policy relationship with the oil-producing giant in the months after last year's blowout U.N. climate summit in Denmark.
