Global warming's cash grab...

No wonder the left love this stuff -- it's just a massive transfer of wealth...
Helping the world's poor adapt to more floods, droughts and other changes from a warming planet will cost the richest nations at least $86 billion a year by 2015, an expert panel warned Tuesday.

"They must have help from the rich world," said Claes Johnasson, a co-author of the report commissioned by the U.N. Development Program. "Climate is forcing people into human development traps."

Half the cost, $44 billion, would go for "climate-proofing" developing nations' infrastructure while $40 billion would help the poor adapt how the live to cope with climate-related risks, says the panel's report. The other $2 billion would go to strengthening responses to natural disasters.

The report recommends the biggest share be paid by the United States and other rich nations, based on aid targets and financing calculations by the World Bank and Group of Eight major industrialized nations.

I have a simpler plan: Me and my friends build floating islands and watch from afar as the world goes to hell.

Its slightly more realistic than convincing the US to hand over $86 billion a year to solve a problems in places most of their citizens couldn't find on a map with labels.

The US needs to quit bailing out the rest of the world. As long as one person is hungry or homeless in America, not one cent should go to help "developing nations". 15 of the 19 most corrupt governments on the planet are in Africa, yet we continue to pump billions of dollars there. It is time for nationalism once again. America first, America foremost. Let the rest of the world play catch up.
