REDD: who are the Mercedes dealers?

mani bilang skai (c) Global Witness

North notes the $100 billion ‘jungle bunny bribe‘ ‘fund’ a.k.a Green Climate Fund, promised coming out from Cancun.

On the other hand, the citizens of Papua New Guinea  shake their heads in wonderment at ‘mani bilang skai‘ – or ‘sky money’ that is yet to come their way. ‘mani bilang skai’, of course refers to the ‘billions of dollars’ that were to flow into the tropical forests of Papua New Guinea with the start of Australian emissions trading.

One ought to realize that gallows humor is wasted on the humorless.
