Saudi Arabia whines about Paris climate talks

http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/dec/08/saudi-arabia-accused-of-trying-to-wreck-the-paris-climate-deal?utm_source=esp&utm_medium=Email&utm_campaign=GU%20Today%20USA%20-%20Version%20CB%20thumb&utm_term=142656&subid=13943093&CMP=ema_565b

Unbelievable. What a horrible, toxic country.

The Saudis have also objected to demands for periodic reviews of climate plans, according to accounts from negotiators and observers. Saudi delegates complain that submitting a climate plan before Paris was difficult enough.

It is unacceptable for developing countries, like my own, to be asked to participate in this so called ratchet mechanism, the Saudis were reported to have told the session.

It was tough, we had to go to every ministry, every part of government. We developing countries dont have the capacity to do this every five years. We are too poor, we have too many other priorities. Its unacceptable, a Saudi delegate said.

And although Saudia Arabia ranks as the worlds 15th largest economy, it has resisted efforts to grow the Green Climate Fund to help poorer countries cope with global warming insisting only industrialised countries contribute.

Well if the Saudis hadn't squandered their oil billions on gold guilded tiolets for their kings & royal offspring, and invested in the solvency of their country, just maybe they wouldn't be so poor.
Royal assholes
