Group brings Cancun delegates to nearby village without electricity

In case you were unaware, the United Nations is holding a climate summit right now in Cancun. They are sunning and making big plans to limit international economic growth, because they are convinced that the observed phenomenon of Global Warming will result in a disaster right out of some movie.

Meanwhile, the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT) is making its own plans — to being delegates and reporters to a nearby Mexican village with no electricity:

(Cancun, Mexico) On Wednesday, December 8th, CFACT will bring COP16 delegates and press to tour La Libertad, a Mexican community only minutes from the comforts of the Cancun tourist zone, where the poor live without electricity. CFACT will provide transportation which will depart the Westin Hotel (first stop on COP16 shuttle one) at 9:30 AM. Return approximately 1 PM. Lunch provided.

Participants will visit with local people, learn about the challenges of living without electricity, and then spend some light-hearted time with village school children. CFACT is working with local organizers to install electric lights in the community school for the first time.

Lest you conclude that this is just a group of wise guys, CFACT says it has provided computers, electricity and money for environmental cleanups in the area outside Cancun. But their press release almost screams out: “Here's the future you're planning for these people.”
