"Hi, this is Susan Elbow at the U.S. Center at the United Nations Conference on Climate Change in Copenhagen. Today, I am standing in the main meeting room of our center, and this where every day, all day long, non-stop, we have presentations and panel discussions by experts on all kinds of subjects related to climate change. For instance this morning, I listened to a NASA scientist talk about the satellite imagery they provide, which is critical to our understanding the climate changes that are taking place every day. And this afternoon I listened to a panel discussion of experts from the public and private sector talk about their efforts to help the developing world achieve sustainable low carbon energy systems. All of these events are streamed live, so you can watch them, and you can also send in questions to the panelists while the event is taking place. This is day five of the conference, so we still have another whole week to go. So, I invite you to take a look at the State Department's special COP-15 website, where there is information on all of these programs, and I invite you to check in again with me as I tell you abut and show you what is happening here in Copenhagen."

However, why other countries do not financially contribute to this effort? When America saves the world, they say: we did all together. When they have to "pay" -I'd say contibute- for our services, they get back with a: Bad Americans...
