thinglets: Copenhagen Creed

I believe you have a Little Mermaid.
I believe she's not the one that sang songs written by Disney Inc.
I believe you are gearing up to host the world.
I believe you will do a good job.

I believe we could conserve more.
I believe we could recycle more.
I believe we could reuse more.
I believe climate always changes by our mere presence on this globe.

I believe the earth is looking more like a cesspool every day.
I believe education, not legislation will be the difference for most of us.
I believe that, if humanity is going to be architect of its own destruction, we deserve it.
I believe we have sold out the earth's environments for our home environments.

I don't believe a bunch of politicians schmoozing in Denmark will make one lick of difference.
I don't believe in Cap and Trade.
I don't believe people should make money from trading futures and derivatives in carbon.
I don't believe Cap and Trade is about helping the environment as much as helping portfolios.

I believe industrial carbon emissions should be Capped - period.
I believe penalties should be harsh.
I believe when Cap and Trade is introduced, people should follow the money .
I believe something is rotten in the state of Denmark.

I believe that politicians don't meet without a political end.
I believe that businessmen don't meet without a business end.
I believe that evangelists don't meet without a sermon.
I believe that our so-called leaders will be making decisions for us because of our inability to take action.

And thus the native hue of resolution
Is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought,
And enterprise of great pitch and moment
With this regard their currents turn awry
And lose the name of action.
