Copengeld

Time to re-introduce an old word into our modern vocabulary and then propose a modern variant.

Danegeld

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Danegeld
a tax raised to pay tribute to the Viking raiders to save a land from being ravaged

Since the raiders today are not Viking [they were just visiting Copenhagen at the time] I propose the word Copengeld. All the tribute money is dressed up with the pretense of being for Copin' with the effects of climate change.

Either way, it's just another shakedown.

I like it! Very fitting. The Danes may not be the main shakedown artists but Copenhagen is hosting, aiding and abetting them.
