COP19 Hosts Poland “Melting Arctic Ice Offers New Opportunities For Drilling, Chasing Pirates, Terrorists & Ecologists”
“You could not make this up“, done to death you to have to admit, but sometimes a cliché really is the only the way to go.
You really could not make this up, the sheer ludicrous farce that the UN Climate Process has degenerated into continually plumbs new depths, or possibly heights of absurdity with COP19 hosts Poland doing a Greenpeace in reverse.
A certain post on the COP19 website has got every Green, warming alarmist, hippie and watermelon offended and indignant in the way that only the self appointed can be, for this is the best foot shooting yet: Read the rest of this entry
The run up to United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Conference of the Parties (COP) like Christmas seems to begin earlier each year, and 2013 is no exception.
Absolutely anything that could be tenuously attributed to Anthropogenic Global Warming is being broadcast by the usual Green propaganda outlets, the UK Guardian is working flat out to keep the scam alive, the story about the dead polar bear on Svalbard, which according to the Guardian starved to death because of global warming, is typical of the shoddy journalism masquerading as Green propaganda, or is it shoddy Green propaganda masquerading as journalism?
Polar bears live on average between 15 – 18 years in the wild and the dead bear in question was 16 years old.
Last years COP18 meeting in Doha was the biggest COP failure yet, ever since the total failure of COP15, and Climategate in 2009 the whole UNFCCC has been in accelerating decline. Read the rest of this entry
Ever since COP15 in Copenhagen, each successive year’s Conference of the Parties (COP) has been a bigger failure than it’s predecessor, COP18 was even by the standards of the UNFCCC, a spectacular failure, the delegates left Doha without any of the major emitters making a new pledge to cut their CO2 emissions.
The chances of a global climate deal have receded to virtually nothing, Canada has turned it;s back on Kyoto, and already this year Russia has said it will never sign up for Kyoto 2.
The US under Obama will not sign up for anything that harms the US recovery, China plays a game of pretending to be Green will getting on with their economic expansion and India is unlikely to sign up to anything that will stop India’s economy growing.
However for some people in the Green boondoggle this reality, and the reality of the standstill in global temperature for what will be 20 years according to the UK Met Office, has still to sink in: Read the rest of this entry
COP18 has ended, and like its predecessors COP15, COP16, COP17 and Rio+20, COP18 has failed to achieve very much, which was frankly the expectation of both sides of the Anthropogenic Global Warming debate, before the conference even started.
Words and phrases like lame, toothless and the much used hell in a handcart have been used to describe the outcome of COP18.
So what was achieved at COP18?
Well the Kyoto Protocol will be extended until 2020, the problem being that only 37 countries out of the 194 attending signed up for the extension.
These countries are responsible for just 15% of global CO2 emissions, the treaty is not internationally binding, so it falls far short of the benchmark of the warming alarmists, and it is yet another example of the totally pointless Green gesture politics that the European Union excels at.

Day 4 and COP18 struggles on in an ever growing climate of mistrust about the host nations position on climate change, accusations of delaying and stalling tactics by some countries and anger regarding the choice of the COP19 host nation, Poland.
The current impasse revolves around the Long term Cooperative Action (LCA) and the need for an agreement, without this agreement the 2015 plan to reduce emissions will not happen.
The negotiators are rushing to complete a draft before the Ministers fly in to Doha on Monday: Read the rest of this entry
Life is full of surprises, like holding a UNFCCC COP meeting in Qatar, one of the worlds largest natural gas producers and as far as the Greens and ecomentalists are concerned, a country with an ambiguous position on Anthropogenic Global Warming.
The environmental circus in Doha is full of mistrust and suspicion of the COP18 President Abdullah bin Hamad Al-Attiyah who is a supporter of the evil Shale Gas, so the choice of Poland for next Conference of the Parties (COP) 19 is quite frankly bizarre.
Poland’s position on Climate Change is most definitely not ambiguous, Poland has consistently blocked further attempts by the EU and Connie Hedegaard to implement their Green Dream: Read the rest of this entry
