The UN Frame-Up Convention on Climate Confabbery in Cancun concluded last week, with an agreement to talk more in South Africa next year about how hopeless it is to write a sequel to the Kyoto Protocol, but at least the food will be good again. Meanwhile delegates in Mexico at least were able to create an unfunded Global Climate Fund, which set up another framework for wealth transfers from developed countries to underdeveloped. Clearly the problem is they have too many frameworkers and no drywallers.
Anyway, over at the National Legal and Policy Center blog, I discuss how big corporations like PepsiCo, Nike and eBay put pressure on the Obama administration to get U.S. taxpayer dollars into the fund. Might happen with the omnibus, as Chris Horner noted here yesterday.
