China has now destroyed Western hopes for a new global warming agreement, just weeks before global talks in Poland aimed at writing a successor for the Kyoto Protocol -- which expires in 2012.

China has attached a ransom note to its Polish meeting RSVP: They might go along with a new warming pact if the rich countries agree to hand over 1 percent of their gross domestic product (GDP) -- about $300 billion per year -- to finance the required non-fossil, higher-cost energy systems the West wants the developing countries to use.

The world is now colder than in 1940, when the Post-WWOII Industrial Revolution started spewing lots of man-made CO 2 in the first place. London had snow in October for the first time in more than 70 years.

But what I'd really like to know is, did you block the UNSC resolution to declare JuD a terrorist organisation, and if so WHY?!
