Snake pliskin is so ridiculously deluded in his world view that it is not clear whether he is either extremely ignorant or just so partisan in his beliefs that, if at high noon with the sun beating down on him, he would close his eyes and try to convince the world that it is midnight. The evidence of global warming is abundant, from the north pole to the south pole. Fossil fuels will be the end of life as many people in this world now know it. Perhaps snake has no progeny whose future he need be concerned about. Perhaps he lives right on the coastline and has a boat.....he will need it. Idiots like him unfortunately abound and their ignorance comes with a massive price.....to be paid by all.

Both the US and UK are broke and heavily in debt. They don’t have any surplus money. They will need to print it from thin air to make these “donations”. Since that’s where it comes from wouldn’t it be more direct and reduce the number of bureaucrats required if developing countries just used the same thin air to print whatever they need themselves?

There is no such thing as global warming. It is just a way for the Dem-rats to line their pockets.
