I'd Use this Declaration as a Bar Coaster for My Margarita

It's the Margarita Declaration and it's comprised of 130 environmental groups -- with the backing of the UN, no less -- calling for an end to capitalism.  With a hat tip to Drudge, here's an excerpt from a Daily Caller news story:
Environmental activists met in the oil producing, socialist country of Venezuela as part of a United Nations-backed event to increase civil engagement in the lead up to a major climate conference.
But environmentalists surprised U.N. officials by offering up a declaration that not only seeks to end capitalism, but one that also opposes U.N.-backed efforts to fight global warming — namely, cap-and-trade and forest conservation programs.
As I've said before, it's not about the environment.  It's about sneaking collectivism in the back door using green language and concepts.  Promoters are usually less blatant than the groups in this new story (of course, they're making their declarations from a staunchly socialist country), and are labeled by enviro skeptics such as OLS as "watermelons".
