Poor nations want U.S. to pay reparations for extreme weatherWhen a "science" has a decidedly Leftist political leaning, it is inevitable that it will culminate in Marxist redistribution of wealth on grand scales. After all, these nations are "Victims", and Leftist "science" is the Messianic lever to enable plundering the Oppressors. It's always a great set-up for grabbing some significant graft right off the top, too.
Poorer nations suffering from extreme weather disasters, so much so that their citizens are seeking refuge in safer terrains outside their borders, want rich nations like the United States to pay for reparations and to relocate populations.
Preparatory talks ahead of the United Nations Conference on Climate Change to be held in Paris in December has representatives from developing nations asking for more than an already agreed upon $100 billion per year for climate change mitigation measures. They want additional compensation for weather-related disasters as well as a "displacement coordination facility" for refugees. And they want all this to be legally binding as part of the larger anticipated Paris accord.
And of course, it is NOT "just weather" for these Leftists: it is climate change due to the USA. They will not send a bill to China, or Russia, or to the faceless, stressed EU.
The fact is that most poor nations have plenty of money; it's just concentrated in the ruling class. Additional infused funds go to the already wealthy dictators and their cronies. Trickle down doesn't exist in these places.
