COP17 Day 1 The UN Were Right, It’s Doomed
A degree of sense and political reality is starting to gain ground at the UN COP17 Climate Synod being held in Durban South Africa as more countries are abandoning the head long rush to be first over the cliff of economic ruin, sadly this dose of reality came to late to save Australia from having that dubious honour.
As the evidence continues to stack up that CO2 does not increase global temperatures and the global financial crises deepens it has become increasingly difficult for politicians and the Watermelon marxists to convince an increasingly sceptical public about the man made CO2 Wolf that never materialise no matter how hard Greenpeace, FoE and the WWF try to summon the beast.
Even the UN were pessimistic about COP17 a long time before it began, and just for once the UN are right:
The politics of the UN climate process are undergoing something of a fundamental transformation.
Increasingly, countries are dividing into one group that wants a new global treaty as soon as possible – the EU plus lots of developing countries – and another that prefers a delay and perhaps something less rigorous than a full treaty.
The divide was evident earlier this month at the Major Economies Forum (MEF) meeting in Arlington, US – the body that includes 17 of the world’s highest-polluting nations.
There, the UK and others argued that the Durban summit should agree to begin work on a new global agreement immediately, to have it in place by 2015, and operating by 2020 at the very latest.
The US, Russia and Japan were already arguing for a longer timeframe.
But BBC News has learned that at the MEF meeting, Brazil and India took the same position.
Brazil wants the period 2012-15 to be a “reflection phase“, while India suggested it should be a “technical/scientific period”.
Interesting choice of phrases “reflection phase” and “technical/scientific period” , India is right climate change could do with some science as in the real science, not the junk implementation so common in the warming alarmist science whose results are predetermined by political correctness.
