Sounds about right.

"At a news conference last week in Brussels, Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of U.N.'s Framework Convention on Climate Change, admitted that the goal of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity but to destroy capitalism."

I'd show you my shocked face, but I'm too busy rubbing my temples with exasperation that everyone seems to have fallen for this shit, and is in the process of destroying  first world nations' economies in the guise of trying to save a planet that isn't dying.

Granted, developing countries--like India and China--need to do an absolute fuck-ton of work on just how badly their industries pollute their air and water; however, these nations either are too busy trying to boot-strap themselves up into the current century to give a flying fuck about trying to save the rest of the planet (which again, isn't in danger), or they saw through what had fooled everyone else.  Honestly, I'm betting on the first: it takes an affluent society to have the breathing room to raise their eyes from their work and wonder what they can fuck with next.
