Climate negotiations are a strange beast; lurking within what seem to be pages of dry, impenetrable text are proposals that could change the world. One of these is a proposal for compensation and redress for “loss and damage”- harm caused by climate change that is now so severe that it can’t be adapted to. This harm is becoming an everyday reality for developing countries, even though they are not responsible for the emissions causing it.

World is ruled by a cabal of “TOO BIG TO FAIL INTERNATIONAL CORPORATIONS”. They believe in “might makes right” and “them that has the gold rules”. Fat chance of getting them to even tolerate replacement of fossil fuel with renewable energy at some else’s expense even with that someone else buying their remaining fossil fuel reserves at a generous price over the same time frame as it would be used with business as usual in time to save even the already industrialized nations from severe famine due to catastrophic climate change. I see no chance of populations of less developed nations even surviving this disaster that is admittedly the fault of the TOO BIG TO FAIL firms headquartered in already industrialized nations.
