COP18 Fallout Russia Blocks UN Climate Talks

Flashback to the dying moments of COP and Russian climate change negotiator Oleg Shamanov trying to get the COP18 President’s attention

Just about 6 months ago the latest UN Climate Circus meeting, COP18 in Doha finished, just like it’s predecessors from COP15 onwards, COP18 was an unmitigated failure.

From the start COP18 was doomed, the plummeting attendance levels seen at COP17 continued with COP18, the conference being less well attended then even COP17 was.

What really made COP18 a spectacular failure was the conduct of the COP18 President Abdullah bin Hamad Al-Attiyah during the closing stages of the conference, where desperate to find a successor to the failed Kyoto Protocol that expired on December 31st 2012, Al-Attiyah effectively forced through new non binding Kyoto texts.

The Kyoto amendment was tabled by the grasping hands of the Alliance of Small Island States (AOSIS) who will stop at nothing to get their Climate Justice money, the money they were promised for playing along with the AGW scam and perpetuating the lie that their islands are under threat from sea levels that are not rising, naturally the amendment was backed by those strongholds of Green foolishness Europe and Australia.

When COP18 finished the Russians were far from happy about COP18 and Oleg Shamanov being ignored:

A key panel at UN climate talks in Bonn went into deep freeze on Tuesday as Russia ignored pleas to end a procedural protest, according to a webcast of the meeting and sources there.

Supported by Belarus and Ukraine, Russia refused to let work start in the Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI), an important technical committee in the climate talks, more than a week after the 12-day negotiations began.

Observers said if the three countries did not back down, the future of the entire UN process to fight greenhouse-gas emissions would be at risk.

The whole UN Climate Process boondoggle is doomed anyway, COP19 in December is being hosted by Poland, one of the few European countries where the Green cancer has not established a stranglehold over national government, a country less receptive to the Green Dream than even Qatar is.

“It’s a most unfortunate situation,” said Christiana Figueres, head of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), as delegates admitted the panel will most likely have achieved nothing by Friday’s close.

Another UNFCCC event that has achieved absolutely nothing, another failure to join COP15, COP16, COP17, Rio+20, COP18, and shortly to be joined by COP19 which will be the daddy of all failures and will almost certainly see the end of the UNFCCC scam as we know it today.

The Russians are incensed by what happened at the UNFCCC’s last big annual meeting, held in Doha, Qatar, last December.

They complain they were ignored by the conference’s Qatari chairman, who gavelled through a deal that extended the Kyoto Protocol.

It will be interesting to see how the UN Climate Scam mutates, 17 years of static global temperatures have not helped to underline the meme that we are all going to fry, the attempt to rehash Global Warming as Sustainable Development crashed and burned at Rio+20, every day brings new stories of the continuing decline of the Green Dream, all the successive COP failures alone dictate that a change of approach is needed.

If 2013 is the year of Green decline, then 2014 will be the year of Stalinist style Green purges, because with any left wing, socialist or liberal political agenda there always has to be accountability when it fails, the most high profile European casualty will likely be unelected EU Climate Commissar Connie Hedegaard, who could well be “spending more time with her family” or returning to hack journalism from whence she came.

Once upon a time Hedegaard could have expected a lucrative job from a profitable renewable energy company, but as Green subsidies are cut globally, there is no such beast anymore as a profitable Green energy company, a newly emerging trade war between the EU and China over solar panels will exacerbate the Green decline still further.

    We live in hope – I can hardly wait for its total collapse.
