Kyoto Protocol, COP17 Durban And The Death Of Climate Religion
The Kyoto Protocol, the prototype document for economic suicide was signed in 1997 and came into force in 2005, since that date Kyoto has failed to live up to the expectations of the environmentalists , as country after country failed to meet their commitments.
The US failed to ratify the agreement, India and China were exempt from the treaty, in reality the world’s top three polluters never took part.
COP17 Durban is destined to fail by the UN’s own admission and with very little chance of an extension or replacement to Kyoto, this is significant smelling of the coffee by the warmists:
Kyoto’s first commitment period finishes at the end of 2012, and the question of whether governments will sign up to a second commitment period is seen by many as the linchpin of the negotiations. Allowing Kyoto to lapse would be a very, very bad idea for several reasons:
1) It’s the only binding international climate law we’ve got, with no alternative in sight. Without a legally binding agreement, we are left with vague intentions and no guarantees of success.
With a so called legally binding agreement, the UN could still not enforce the agreement, so it is difficult to see what a difference another unenforced legally binding document would make.
If Kyoto’s future dies in Durban, it may well be the death knell for an effective, comprehensive internationally co-ordinated and legal response to global climate change in this decade. We can’t afford to let that happen.
The industrialised world cannot afford a replacement for Kyoto, as Australia will find out as Gillard’s Labor party commits economic suicide, alone.
The death knell has sounded for the Global Warming scam, there is no successor for Kyoto in the pipeline and by the warming alarmists own admission they have lost the battle to make everyone on the planet scared of some cataclysmic event or other, that has simply failed to happen.
