NAIROBI, Kenya Africa contributes little to global warming but suffers disproportionately from its effects, the continent's environment ministers said Friday, calling for more money and support from rich nations ahead of a landmark climate conference.
The ministers, meeting in Nairobi, said they will ask for funding from rich nations at December's U.N. conference in Copenhagen of 190 countries.
They did not give a figure, but the U.N. says Africa needs at least $1 billion a year to manage the effects of climate change such as sinking islands, changing farming techniques and even relocating people from areas affected by extreme weather.

Africa has sat on its behind since the beginning of time and now they want to get paid for it.
They did not give a figure, but the U.N. says Africa needs at least $1 billion a year to manage the effects of climate change.....
It’s easier to play along with the hoax, ask for a handout, than it is to produce DDT.
Since DDT was banned by EPA fiat in 1972, after losing the court case to try and prove harm, nearly 35 million African children under the age of five have died of the heinous disease malaria. Millions worldwide suffer from malaria sickness each year.
All because of another liberal fraud, Rachael Carson.
Did you know that WHO tried for over 30 years to prove DDT caused something bad and failed. In 2006 WHO allowed the use of DDT after having found nothing harmful, except it kills malaria carrying mosquito.
So what does more harm, the global warning nonsense or the very real DDT ban?
When the melting glaciers flood the Sahara and create a massive verdant wonderland, we'll send you the bill for a few trillion.
In the meantime, get a job.
So Africans want free money? Well why not. They’ve been getting it in the US for decades!!
The ministers, meeting in Nairobi...
And we laugh when people get taken by the 419 scammers...
Maybe we should allow Africans to use their coal reserves for a power plant or two. The progressives have all joined together at the hip to prevent any electric power generation for the masses in Africa.
Am I the only one seeing the irony here: Kenya?
Sure, a billion in Zimbabwe money. No problem.
Yeah right. Kenya asks new Kenyan prez fo some mo.
The um.... global warmin & stuff ya know. It’s umm,.... burning us & we need money to stop the umm.... burnin.
but why not? we actually pay for their food,education,medicine,officials... so why not for their climate too?
So we’ll just have an 11% VAT, vice 10%, and send the additional 1% to Africa. It’s all for the common good because spreading the wealth around is good for everyone. /sarc
