Not decreasing CO2 emissions will fuck them over. Let's be clear here, most of those who suddenly have this great concern for the plight of the developing world when the topic of fossil fuel use reductions come up couldn't give a burning piece of shit about the fate of people in the developing world. It's all about trying to stave off the inevitable decline in the use of fossil fuels, and, presumably, the decline in returns from fossil fuel company stocks.
That's a nice stock answer, but it's bullshit. First, you think there is "manmade global warming." Personally, I think that's bullshit as well, but I think we can both agree that even on the most extreme scale presented, your worst case of global warming is half a century to well over a century away. Again, I think it's bullshit, but it's far enough to not matter.
Second, I don't think anyone has a "great concern for the plight of the developing world when the topic of fossil fuel use reductions come up." Coal is the best tool for the job. You're thinking "Hey, these coal people suddenly give a fuck about these dirt poor Africans when they can make a sale" when you should be thinking "Coal is the best and cheapest option for dirt poor people and, BTW, it keeps them from cooking their food with shit."
Third, it isn't trying to "stave off the inevitable decline of fossil fuels." I have no money involved in fossil fuels. But I do believe in common sense. Fossil fuels, which is a misnomer, are cheap energy. Extremely cheap. There are other options available but use the best option for the job.
Fourth, it's liberals like you that are fucking those people over. Again, they are cooking food with shit. SHIT. While liberals have been fawning over themselves with cries about how the planet is doomed in twenty years for over fifty years, they jet all over the world while ignoring people are cooking their food with shit. Even worse than ignoring, actively denying these needy people cheap fuel.
