    The coming climate change summit in Cancun, Mexico, should be called COP-OUT.

    After all, it’ll probably be a meeting where delegates will get to wine and dine, and Obama will take zero part in the discussions until the last few days when he’ll suddenly announce that he has come up with a brilliant new paradigm for Doing Nothing About Climate Change, because Doing Nothing About Climate Change is extremely important for preserving the dream of Bipartisanship — because Bipartisanship is the most important thing in the Obama universe, even more important than planet Earth itself.

    Also, everything wrong with this brilliant new paradigm is either China’s fault, or is the environmentalists’ fault.

    Welcome to the game-changing, paradigm-shifting climate change summit in Cancun, Mexico — the COP-OUT summit.

    CBD also stands for Central Business District, just to add more confusion into the mix.

    I’d be interested to hear Dr Ng’s plain English explanation of the Clean Development Mechanism. Is it really the massive “pay the polluter” Ponzi scheme it appears to be to my simple, humanities-educated eyes, or is there more to it?

    A friend of mine working in IT was part of a project having the inadvertent acronym DRIP. One of the managers, unimpressed with the staff’s frivolity towards the “drip” name, took it upon himself to rename it at the full-title level.

    The acro of his new project name? JISM.

    Sounds more like “un-fuck” to me. As in unfucking the climate problems.

      Totally with you on the “unf**k” part. Hence the irony.
