COP16 – UN Attempts To Polish A Turd

UN attempts to put a shine on the COP16 turd

There is an old saying “You cant polish a turd”, it’s origins are obscure though my father who was Royal Navy tells a story from Naval folklore about a visit from King George V to the battleship bearing his name. During the king’s stay some enterprising matelots put a grill in the ships sewer system and captured a Royal deposit. This was duly dried and varnished which only produced a matt finish.

The story may or may not be true but it does illustrate beautifully the attempts to big up the car crash at Cancun by the UN and the usual suspects.

The modest deal wrangled out by the 200 countries meeting at the Mexican resort of Cancún may have done more to save a dysfunctional UN negotiating process from collapse than protect the planet against climate change, analysts said today.

“The UN climate talks are off the life-support machine,” said Tim Gore of Oxfam. “The agreement falls short of the emissions cuts that are needed, but it lays out a path to move towards them.”

There they go again, may is a conditional not an absolute.

The Global Wind Energy Council said Cancún was only counted a success because of the extremely low expectations going into the talks. “None of the fundamental political, legal and architectural issues that still must be resolved in order to establish an effective global climate regime have been solved,” it said.

They expected zero and they got one, now that is an outstanding success.

The look on Chris Huhne’s face must have been priceless, what with him being the Wind God and all.
