Revkin on the Cancun climate hoax fest: "the extravagance of some of the parties was beyond parody..."

Climate and Energy Beyond CancĂșn - NYTimes.com
My departure does not mean I think the talks are a waste of time. (Mind you, I do think they waste a lot of resources and money; much of the first week of jockeying and events could have been done virtually, for instance, and the extravagance of some of the parties was beyond parody considering the poverty outside the hotel zone.)*

    I'm Beginning to be Annoyed by Gringos!

I'm beginning to be annoyed by gringos
Everywhere I go;
Take a look in the tiki bar, drinking once again
With bloodshot eyes and Hawaiian shirts aglow.
I'm beginning to be annoyed by gringos,
Drunks in every bar, But the sorriest sight to see, the UN IPCC
On the damn dance floor.

A pair of rude yahoos both wearing patent white shoes
trying to buy Spanish Fly again;
Tightwads that will flock in here round the clock
and they treat tipping as a sin;
And cannot wait for the buffet to open once again.

I'm beginning to be annoyed by gringos
Everywhere I go;
There are dozens in each hotel, none would be realy swell,
These nerdy pseudoscientists really blow.

I'm beginning to be annoyed by gringos;
dressed for ole Wal-mart,
And the hope to which we cling is that next year will be Beijing
And they'll soon depart.
