G-20 Summits Still Pointless and IrrelevantWhat breathless globaloney journalists and government flacks describe as the world’s most powerful supranational body proved once again
that it is ill-equipped to produce much more than hot air. If world leaders actually cared a fig about carbon emissions, these summits would die a quick and merciful death. Reminder to all students and other persons trying to follow the news in a serious way: G-20 summits are NOT NEWS. They are taxpayer funded campaign ad photo ops for incumbents combined with ego boosts for insecure powers. Via Meadia
