An Open Letter to Climate Negotiators:

A year ago world leaders gathered in Copenhagen in an effort to take-on one of history’s greatest threats to humanity- climate change. Some important progress was made but sadly not nearly enough. In Cancun, you can make history.

For millions of people on the front lines of climate change, the time since Copenhagen has been the year from sheer hell as floods, droughts, fires, storms and other extreme weather events have wiped out crops and destroyed the livelihoods of some of the poorest people in the world. We know that the destructive impacts of climate change will mean more misery and pain for the world’s poor, and increasing instability and insecurity around the world unless action is taken. As you prepare for a new round of talks in Cancun next week it is abundantly clear that you must do better. And fast.

At Cancun, climate funding to help poor communities protect themselves and develop in a low carbon way could help break through the current stalemate. Progress on setting up a new global climate fund that enables vulnerable people in poor countries to build resilience to growing threats – especially women who bear the hardest burdens – could be the key to moving the world closer towards a global deal. A fair, effective and accountable UN body is needed to give voice to those who need the money most and can use it best. These measures of success are within our grasp if you seize this moment in Cancun.

Time is running out but it’s not too late to prevent a climate catastrophe. We look to you to play your part in the historic challenge of our time so that a safer future is secured for us all and generations to come.

Yours truly,

Scarlett Johansson – US
Djimon Hounsou – Benin
Gael García Bernal – Mexico
Helena Christensen – Denmark
Miguel Bosé – Panama
Kristin Davis – US
Bill Nighy – UK
Angelique Kidjo – Benin

    These people are idiots. What are they going to do about the sun?? How are they going to convince Mr. Sun to cooperate? We just heard Al Gore admit that the whole corn ethanol thing was a gigantic waste of billions of dollars of taxpayer money, because it turned out it used more energy to make the ethanol – of course, Gore is now on his way to being a billionaire because of it. These people have no idea what they’re doing. It’s all about money now.

    Carbon taxes are a scheme to tax life itself and as the banksters are ultimately out to grab sovereignty itself, for themselves, they plan to collect the carbon taxes directly in the future.

    Cap and Trade is a scheme for polluters to pass the buck on their pollution and the trafficking in the offsets, (the “trade”), will be sold off and divided and resold as “derivatives” , in the same manner as the derivatives that caused our massive mortgage backed securities crisis.

    All Derivatives globally are estimated at some $600 Trillion already. Compare that to a GDP of only $45 Trillion.

    Derivatives will implode society long before greenhouse gasses will devastate the planet.

    @sillyme: I can’t stand this girl or her husband Ryan Reynolds. I guess Washington and the UN only listen to Hollywood bimbos and airheads. Who cares about what the peasants think??

    @marq: Bingo! Finally someone who sees the big picture and the truth behind the climate scheme!

    don’t you mean “global warming” pfft it’s all a money making scam folks, so it’s no surprise to me that these hollyweird twits buy into such rubbish.

    Do some research before jumping on board .. It’s very simple really — just follow the money.
