The United Nations World Summit on Sustainable Development is meeting now in a concerted effort to blame everything on the U.S. Actually, they want us to admit culpability and send them some money. They claim that the earth is being ravaged by we eeeeeevil capitalists, and mass extinction is just around the corner unless we implement Kyoto and other GDP-reducing programs. The problem is, or a least one of the problems is, that the earth isn't being destroyed (according to Bjorn Lomborg). Dr. Lomborg has written a book about this very topic, by the bye.
