South Africa Calls Climate Deal “Apartheid” for Developing Nations

climate_change_dollarsBy Joshua Krause

While many citizens of the developed world often view climate change policies as an attack on their economic prosperity, it’s easy to forget that these policies can have an even greater effect on the Third World. Countries that are already struggling to raise the standard of living of their citizens have enough to worry about, without environmentalists telling them to shut down their factories or use less fuel.

While South Africa is widely considered to be a developed nation, their nation is still brimming with poverty and strife, and they’ve recently criticized the UN’s latest climate change deal as ‘apartheid’ for developing nations.

A delegate for South Africa spoke on the behalf of the developing world, and claimed that their demands were largely omitted from the UN’s recent draft of the climate agreement, as other delegates complained that the document favored wealthy nations. If true, it would suggest that this document is really an attempt to suppress the economic competitiveness of emerging economies. Delegates from these nations managed to revive their right to make national demands in the document, which other members feel would make the climate deal too unwieldy.

In response to these demands, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon spoke like a true globalist.

There is no time to waste. It has been quite frustrating to see negotiators negotiating only based on their very narrow national perspectives. This is not a national issue, it’s a global issue.

I guess poor nations should just yield to the whims of rich nations, and sell out their own people in the name of environmentalism.

    More like climate starvation.. The majority of food is for profit, and the areas that exist where there are no humans are not sufficient. While the areas that exist where both humans and animals exist, are food deserts. The rise in CO2 should have been an indicator of that, nope. Now the sun is shutting down in a maunder minimum type style because instead of working together to feed the ecosystem, humans go to war… like is that going to make things better? So until after humanity destroys most of itself, no good can be done, and worst of all, I have to live through an Ice Age and A Dark Age because you all are too smart with your college educations to be able to figure it out… FML
