100 Monkeys and Climate Change

   If you put 100 monkeys in a room with 100 typewriters, they say, they’ll eventually write the complete works of Shakespeare. This automatically makes me think of the Paris Climate Change Accord.

I’m a regular guy, not pretending to be some climate change expert. All I really know is that something has to be done. So I watch our leaders susposedly action on the subject. The World Leaders started the conference off telling everyone that they are behind sweeping changes. This was a World scale “Photo-Op”. Then they took off and the worker bees were left to hammer out a deal. Good for them that they all came to a soft agreement.

 

 

The first thing to hit me was the fact that the “have” countries are going to give millions upon millions to under developed countries to help them become greener. Come on, we all know that some of these countries are where kickbacks, pay offs and corruption are a way of life. It’s almost like FIFA is running the Government. So when countries are lining up to give you millions, of course you’re going to say, you want to fight climate change. No one is keeping track of this money.

I’m confused on one point, some say this accord is not legally binding and some say that it is. All I can say is that, if countries are not going to abide by the rules, there has to be massive repercussions.
How about China? Tons of people are walking around with masks on because of pollution. If the World was to hit China with any kind of action because they didn’t live up to the accord, all they’d have to do is call in a few loans, stop a few manufacturing plants and the World would be screwed. So for all intents and purposes lets call them out of the agreement. That would be like the GOP telling Donald Trump to give up his Presidential bid.

All this accord does is draw attention to the fact that we have a problem. Congratulations to the World for all agreeing to something but all we can see through all the smoke and mirrors, is it might be too little to late. Now I have to run, and take my VW into the shop for servicing.

Top 8 Hazing Pranks At The G20 Summit

g20-türkiye

   The new kid on the G20 block is Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada. At just 43 he’s the youngest and the most inexperienced of all the G20 Leaders. Outside the doors of the G20 Summit, is the predictable circus of protesters. Little is known about what goes on behind the closed doors of this high power meeting except it has something to do with Money. As the each countries Prime Ministers, Chancellors, Kings and Grand Poo-Bah’s kick back and try to figure out the global economy, you have to think they can’t really be “serious” all the time. After minutes of research, I’ve found that out of all the countries involved the G20, there are a few jokers in the midst. You can bet that this noble group has rituals that are unknown to the general public. Like maybe, the hazing of new members. This brings us back to the young Canadian Prime Minister, Justine Trudeau. Here’s what’s in store for the fresh, new, young Canadian face at the G20….

 

 

Germany… These jokers of the EU will force Justin to pound back Jello Shots off of Angela Merkel’s chest.

 

 

The President of Indonesia, Joko Widodo …He makes Justin wear nothing but a thong at a meeting… This teaches Trudeau something every World leader knows, how to cover one’s ass.

 

 

Vladimir Putin from Russia…invites young Justin into the hotel freezer and tells him to stick your tongue on the metal door. After he tries in vane pull his frozen tongue off the door, Putin says…Sorry, I’ve only one form of warm liquid to free you. This teaches Trudeau … on the World stage, somethings can piss you off.

 

 

The President of CHINA…Amongst cheers from all the Leaders Trudeau has to give his laptop to Xi Jinping for 1 hour. Then without help, try to find the hack.

 

 

From Australia’s Prime Minister Malcom Turnbull…What a kidder he turns out to be. Malcom sticks a sign on Justin’s back saying, “Kick Me, I’m Canadian, watch me apologize”.

 

 

Salman, King of Saudi Arabia… Has a tried and true prank. He sneaks in while Trudeau is sleeping and puts his finger in a cup of warm oil.

 

 

Prime Minister David Cameron from the UK…Forces Justin to eat Haggis which is a sheeps stomach filled a surprise. Yes, with the stuff that comes out of the other end of the sheep. Trudeau cuts into it which releases the pressure.. BOOM…crap everywhere. Then he’s handed a note saying…”Hey kid, you have to learn to take some crap, some of the time”.

 

 

President of the United States Barack Obama… He’s got a real funny bone. At a lavish dinner he insists that Turkey is served (because the host country is Turkey, I guess). Before the turkey is cooked a small game hen is placed inside and cooked along with the massive bird. Then at dinner just as he’s about to carve it, he reaches inside and pulls out the small game hen. In a big voice he announces, “this turkey was to going to have a baby” and holding the game hen above his head, he states, “and we name it Justin”.

 

 

Here’s hoping all the leaders have a great time in Turkey at the G20 Summit. For Justin Trudeau this will be a learning experience and maybe a bit of fun will be had by all.
