Soros: Finance gap could 'wreck' climate talks

COPENHAGEN — The $10 billion a year proposed by rich nations to help the poor adapt to climate change is "not sufficient" and the gap between what's offered and what's needed could wreck the Copenhagen climate conference, American billionaire George Soros said Thursday.

The investor-philanthropist, one in a line of international notables visiting the 192-nation meeting, told reporters he had developed a partial solution. Soros suggested shifting some International Monetary Fund resources from providing liquidity to stressed global financial system to a new mission of financing projects in developing countries for clean energy and adapting to climate change.

"It is possible to substantially increase the amount available to fight global warming in the developing world," he said. "All that is lacking is the political will. Unfortunately the political will will be difficult to gather because of the mere fact that it requires congressional approval in the United States."

Interesting...sounds like it wouldn't break his heart IF Congress simply went away.

I knew this would happen. Gore and Soros have alot at stake, and this has been scripted to a "T". Nothing more than an orchestrated wealth re-distribution plan, under the guise of climate change.

This is the ultimate conflict of interest. Too bad Soros is too savy to keep investigators from following the money.

I agree. Soros is NOT American. I don’t care whether he’s a naturalized citizen or not. His thoughts and deeds are contrary to all things American. In fact, he’s an enemy of American concepts of liberty.

He’s a wanted fugitive in a few nations. I believe Thailand considers him to be an economic terrorist.

Unverifiable, unreproducible, not honestly peer reviewed “data”, that has since conveniently been destroyed...

GloBull Warming is no more real than ‘Cold Fusion’.

Americans for Prosperity reported today from Copenhagen that the "Copenhagen Treaty" language has been changed in two critical ways. First, the word "treaty" has been changed to "agreement" so that Obama can sign it without review by the U.S. Senate, and second "worldwide government" has been removed. Nevertheless, the "treaty" creates some 700 new global government offices and entities which will supercede the U.S. Constitution.

What is this guy worried about? BamaKennedy has a committee of czars, the EPA, and a willing Congress to fund their handiwork. I have stayed away from the weather channel prophets the past couple of days, but seems there has to be some reason why old man winter has been raging out of control before Winter officially begins. I can't wait to find out why.

Thanks for posting this. So, ZERO is having the Europeans circumnavigate our politics—by using agreement over treaty. Where are the Repubbies on this? I have to check out FR to find this. This should be NEWS.

When did Soros come out in the open and pushing his agenda? Isnt this new? I mean he usually works in the shadows, sneaking around making his fortune.

He owns Brackp Bama lock stock and barrel and now he is coming out of the closet.

Soros and his paid for groups are so anti Israel that it is a wonder the Mossad isn’t on his case.

Then why doesn’t Soros step up? He could quit wasting his money trying to destroy the U.S. and start putting it where his fat mouth is.

You’re most welcome. I was just stunned when I came across the thread. I had heard Rush speak about a UK Guardian article (which I didn’t get around to looking for) that reportedly said something about the US, UK and Denmark were planning to take control of ‘global warming’ away from the UN and into control of their own so it (the money) could be managed by the world bank and the first person I thought of was Soros.

Now I see this article and WHAM.

“i propose Soros puts his money where his big fat mouth is,”

Well, I think he is certainly putting his money where his beliefs are. If you have ever wondered why Pelosi, Reid, Obama are willing to sacarificed the house and senate majorities and the presidency if that’s what it takes to pass nationalized health care, cap and trade, it’s because the Puppet Master, aka George Soros has directed that it will be done....

Is Soros really an American or is that a lie too? Can’t wait for him to be perp walked to a jail cell. Maybe he can be Bernie’s cell mate.

to help the poor adapt to climate change

It seems like there is a new language developing - a leftist patois that only they comprehend.

You just know that adaptation by poor folks involves more than better winter coats and summer air conditioning.

And somewhere it's all about holding onto other peoples $$$.

He needs to depart our company. How many times was his name listed on the WH visitor list?

This is his plan and Obama is a bought and paid for puppet.

How old is Soros anyway?

When is everyone going to realize that we are no longer one of the ‘rich’ countries. We are so far upside down that we will never be close to paying off our debts. A baby born today owes over $300,000.00 just to pay off current debt and unfunded liabilities and the amount just KEEPS GROWING!

Soros is 79. Born in 1930 in Hungary. Unfortunately, I went to elementary school with his nephew.

Franklin, Jefferson and Adams were certainly prescient to be able to foresee a George Soros in the future

According to a court ruling last week, here in Pennsylvania is it apparently OK to pray for someone to kill him.

So since the only reason anyone listens to him is because he's a billionaire, and the problem he's talking about is money, why doesn't he just fix it?

With libtards, “charity” and “compassion” only involve other people’s money.

Not that this has anything to do with charity, but to a libtard, transferring $ from producers to non-producers IS charity.
