The laughable part of this is how all these leaders pledge to cooperate and stop the 'apocalypse'. These are people who would come to blows about picking up the check at a dinner party and argue how much of a tip to leave.
Every politician gets elected by protecting those in his/her domain. How far would Merkel get if she, for ex, helped the French if it hurt some Germans?
I know I sound like a 'doom and gloom' guy all the time but these people infuriate me to no end --- they first F everything up, then blame the free market and use that to grab more power.
