COP19 Postmortem – Bring On The Green Turd Polish

Even sprinkling glitter on COP19 won't make a shine.

Even sprinkling glitter on COP19 won’t make a shine, dull or otherwise

The COP19 Climate Circus has finally ended, despite the Greens and wealth re-distributors setting the bar for success this year, even lower than in previous years, COP19 still failed to deliver.

The pattern for acrimony was set at COP15, Copenhagen in 2009 and in each successive COP meeting the acrimony and bickering has got worse, culminating in the unelected Green NGOs walking out of COP19 after the wealth re-distribution scam know as loss and damage failed to gain much traction.

COP19 was a disaster, just as much on the global stage as in the stadium in Warsaw.

Overshadowed by coal in Poland, 60 countries did not send ministers to COP19 thus preventing any global agreement from being signed, Australia and Canada said they were not going to give any more money away, Japan decided to reduce its CO2 ambitions drastically and in Britain David “Call me Dave” Cameron was oozing snake oil and possibly muttering darkly about Green Crap.

Against this background COP19 headed into overtime and at the eleventh hour, for the fifth successive time, produced an agreement that was worth less than the paper it was printed on. Read the rest of this entry

COP19 And The Climate Of Blame, Connie Hedegaard Damaged COP15 And COP19

EU Climate Commissar Connie Hedegaard ""I hope to hear from the blamed for failures at COP15 and COP19

EU Climate Commissar Connie Hedegaard  blamed for failures at COP15 and COP19

One of the joys of the failure of any socialist scheme is the apportionment of blame for the failure, every scheme needs a Stalin style scapegoat for when it all goes to hell in a handcart.

Enter the new Green scapegoat blamed not only for the failure of COP19, but COP15 as well, the one and only EU Climate Commissar Connie Hedegaard.

In an amusing and ironical twist Comrade Connie, a great exponent of the junk science of attribution where by everything that has ever happened, might happen or will happen is attributed to Anthropogenic Global Warming, is now having the same attribution logic applied to her.

Only in this case it is a brand new branch of Green science that evolved during the latter stages of COP19, the attribution of COP failure: Read the rest of this entry

COP19 – Green NGOs To Walk Out Of The Climate Circus

Green NGOs are set to walk out of COP19 talks due to lack to progress in wealth redistribution.

Green NGOs are set to walk out of COP19 talks due to lack to progress in wealth redistribution.

After years of having a hysterical mainstream media pushing the Green fear meme, having politicians desperate to placate their shrill demands the Green NGOs like Greenpeace, WWF, FoE et al are having a tough time adapting to the new reality.

The writing first appeared on the wall at COP18 for the Green NGOs, when their interruptions to the climate talks was for the first time limited to just 30 seconds. A year later and the reality has still not sunk in, Green NGOs are now irrelevant to the COP negotiating process, despite still weaving their Green propaganda and junk science into IPCC Assessment Reports.

COP19 was always going to deliver absolutely nothing,even before the Boy King Obama killed off wealth redistribution loss and damage which effectively delivered the coup de grâce. Read the rest of this entry

COP19 – Aussies In T Shirts Blamed For Loss And Damage Walkout

Aussies in T shirts like Brad and Dan are the reason that COP19 failed.

Casually dressed Aussies like Brad and Dan are the reason that COP19 failed.

As the warming alarmists and UN wealth re-distributors thrash around desperately seeking someone to blame for the 5th Successive COP meeting failure in a row, some incredibly silly and pathetic reasons will be forthcoming.

Like Aussies in T shirts for example.

The Greens have it in for Australia, following Tony Abbott’s crushing defeat of Julia Gillard’s Labor government and her Green allies in the September General Election, the rollback of Green stupidity down under has begun.

Tony Abbott chose not send Environment Minister Greg Hunt to Warsaw, having him instead stay in Australia to begin the process of removing Gillard’s Carbon Tax. Read the rest of this entry

COP19 – Now The Fifth Successive UNFCCC Failure Is Complete

Green propaganda admits that COP19 has stalled, which is Greenwash for crashed and burned

Green propaganda admits that COP19 has stalled, which is Greenwash for crashed and burned

That’s 5 UNFCCC COP failures in a row, an unprecedented record of failure, each Conference of the Parties has disintegrated faster than the COP that preceded it, with COP19 holding the current record.

There was never any doubt, from the outset that COP19 was going to be the biggest failure since records began, what has been surprising is the speed of that collapse, COP19 was effectively dead before it had begun.

It has just taken 5 days for COP19 to realize it was dead and hit the floor.

The make or break issue for COP19 was “loss and damage“, wealth redistribution to us regular folks and that great Green Socialist Barack Obama made sure that loss and damage was deader than Osama Bin Laden, before COP19 even started. Read the rest of this entry

COP19 – Dominated By Typhoon Haiyan And Falling Levels Of Ministers

Typhoon Haiyan has been a terrible human tragedy, the sort of human tragedy that should be above politics, the sort of human tragedy that should not be used to falsely advance a political agenda concerned solely with wealth redistribution.

The Philippines lead Climate Envoy Yeb Sano told COP19 just how much was at stake at COP19:

Sano wept as he told the room of the devastation that Super Typhoon Haiyan has swept through his country, and announced that he would fast throughout the two-week conference “in solidarity with my countrymen who are now struggling for food back home”.

The Filipino delegate said that he would keep this up until “a meaningful outcome is in sight”. This includes concrete pledges to fill up the coffers of the Green Climate Fund, as well as progress on a loss and damage mechanism, and “real ambition on climate action”.

Sano is without any doubt attributing Haiyan to Anthropogenic Global Warming, which is understandable from a man whose country has been severely damaged by the typhoon, but whose message is in direct contradiction to that of the IPCC Chair Rajendra Pachauri Read the rest of this entry

COP19 – Coal The Silent And Terrible Ghost In The Room

Coal the silent and terrible ghost in the COP19 room.

Coal the silent and terrible ghost in the COP19 room.

Flashback COP15 Copenhagen November 2009 Warming Alarmism as political force has just peaked and though the major protagonists have yet to realize it, the long slow painful disintegration of the Anthropogenic Global Warming scam has begun.

In blissful ignorance of the coming storm the true agenda of the warming alarmists was being openly aired and applauded by the likes of Gordon Brown, Nicholas Sarkozy, the late and unlamented Hugo Chavez and the late President of Ethiopia Meles Zenawi who pronounced that the answer to Climate Change was Global Socialism.

Not long afterwards Hugo Chavez made his infamous “Silent and Terrible Ghost in the room” speech, a reference to capitalism and the free market economy to rapturous applause from all present.

Among those in the enthusiastic audience was one Christiana Figueres, Head of the UNFCCC, socialist thinker and long time Chavez ally. Read the rest of this entry

On The Eve Of COP19 Connie Hedegaard Admits It’s All Coming Apart

EU Climate Commissar Connie Hedegaard ""I hope to hear from the big parties that this is not the case. The countries that want to keep a certain level of ambition [on moving to a low-carbon economy] are very important"

EU Climate Commissar Connie Hedegaard “I hope to hear from the big parties that this is not the case. The countries that want to keep a certain level of ambition [on moving to a low-carbon economy] are very important”

Later today the 19th UN Climate Circus will begin in Warsaw, Poland.

Expectations are low for the outcome of COP19, in a change from previous years where high expectations have been dashed continually, a new tactic of low expectation has appeared where the only way is up.

Most of the major players in the Great Man Made Global Warming boondoggle are aware that it’s all coming apart now, and no one is more aware of this than EU Climate Commissar Connie Hedegaard who is hoping against hope, that the UK will continue to play a strong role in the collective dream of Green economic suicide.

Greenpeace In Russia: The Criminal Charges Pile Up For The Arctic 30

Excellent video from CBC News showing the detention at gun point of the Greenpeace activists in their Zodiacs while the Russian Coast Guard ship pursues the Greenpeace vessel Arctic Sunrise, and then opens fire with several warning shots.

Right up to the point where the Russians open fire, Greenpeace really do not have any comprehension of where this is going, or just how much brown smelly stuff they are just about to step into.

In another video clip shot er sorry, filmed, on the bridge of the Arctic Sunrise the Captain of the Russian Coastguard ship can be clearly heard saying “if you do not stop your vessel we will use weapons“.

The response from Greenpeace is typically smug and very naive, because Greenpeace have a monopoly on deciding what is politically correct for Gaia, and more importantly how we should all live our lives.

Greenpeace:”We are here in order to make the world a better place and in response you are threatening to open fire on our ship“.

In reply the Russian Coastguard fires warning shots, the Arctic Sunrise finally stops, the Russians board the ship and tow it to Murmansk where all 30 people on board are charged with piracy. Read the rest of this entry

Poland, COP19 And The International Coal Conference

Hosting an international conference on coal at the same time as COP19, no doubt about it the Poles have a great sense of irony.

Hosting an international conference on coal at the same time as COP19, no doubt about it the Poles have a great sense of irony.

The decision made on Day 3 of COP18 for Poland to host COP19 was always a strange one, but then so was the choice of Qatar to host COP18.

Qatar’s position on Anthropogenic Global Warming could be charitably described as ambiguous, Poland is best described as obstructive to the EU Climate Change Laws and the aspirations of the UNFCCC.

Then last month the COP19 website caused massive Green outrage when a page appeared promoting the benefits of melting Arctic ice: “Melting Arctic Ice Offers New Opportunities For Drilling, Chasing Pirates, Terrorists & Ecologists”, unsurprisingly the Green meltdown exceeded that of alleged melting of the polar ice caps.

From a Green perspective things have pretty much gone to hell in a hand cart for COP19, but then when you think things can’t get any worse, or better, depending upon your point of view, this happens: Read the rest of this entry
