Obama’s Lonely Climate Summit – world leaders are staying home | Watts Up With That?

Many politicians are staying home, but let’s not forget about this lot, as the build-up for “The People’s Climate March” reaches a hysterical crescendo, witness this article from Truthout:

Like a Dull Knife: The People’s Climate “Farce”Tuesday, 16 September 2014 10:25 By Quincy Saul, Truthout | Op-Ed

The climate justice movement has an expiration date. If the tipping points in the earth system are passed, and the feedback loops begin their vicious cycle, human attempts at mitigation will be futile,[...]In other words, we have roughly four months to work for climate justice. The world is literally at stake; all life on earth is at risk. Never has there been a more urgent or comprehensive mandate.[...]We are going to join the rest of the human race. For 200 years too long, citizens of the United States have been parasites and predators on the rest of the world. To prevent climate catastrophe, we are going to leave our imperial hubris behind, and join with the revolutionary ecosocialist uprisings that are sweeping the global South.
