Rio +20 will fail, just like Rio before, Johannesburg, Kyoto, Copenhagen.
and Rio +20 will follow suit.
Until there is a mechanism that controls the duplicity of politicians and punishes them heavily for consorting and being funded by corporations and vested interests, all will be a failure.
For there to be any future progress in these types of conferences politicians need to be kept as far away as possible, banned from the event.
The event participants need to be independents and have the powers to dictate to the politicians the results that will benefit mankind and the planet.
Politicians, and I don’t give a tinker’s cuss if he’s a president, ought to be fined; or tried for treason and imprisoned or banned from holding public office for life.
Corporations who flout the laws, should be fined heavily and I am talking 1bn+ for each and every infraction; or have their companies closed. Put the executives on the dole queue.
Until this happens, we, our descendants and the planet are doomed.
