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.

With little over a week to go until COP18 starts, there are increasing signs that the Anthropogenic Global Warming boondoggle is disintegrating at an ever increasing pace.
Attendance is down to a lower level than COP17, so slow has the take up for visas been that, the counter for visa applications was removed from the COP18 website.
Then in one of the strangest statements to ever come out of the UNFCCC, the COP18 President, Abdullah bin Hamad Al-Attiyah declared that Shale Gas was good news for the world as it would provide energy security for the next 300 years, which is poles apart from the UN official meme of abandoning the use of fossil fuels.
Now the United States has suggested that the UN is not the best place to ever achieve a climate deal: Read the rest of this entry
This years UN Climate Circus annual meeting COP18, is being held in Doha and as usual is being billed as the last chance to save the world from CO2, until COP18 fails and then the burden of saving the world will be on COP19.
Someone in the UN still thought that the annual COP meetings were as important as they ocne were, the high water mark for COP attendance was COP15 in Copenhagen with 33000 attendees including a huge press presence and the usual posses from the Green NGOs, but with just 20 days to the start of COP18 the counter for visa applications was well below 6000, not exactly the huge take up they were expecting.
Now just the 3 days later the visa application counter has vanished from the COP18 web site: Read the rest of this entry
The latest United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) pre COP18 meeting in Bangkok has just finished, having achieved absolutely nothing at all.
The Bangkok meeting was supposed to pave the way for advancing the global Green agenda at COP18 in November, instead confusion ruled as attendees disagreed about whether they are actually allowed to disagree: Read the rest of this entry
It always has to be someone’s fault in marxist circles, when the plot fails, the plot in this case is Anthropogenic Global Warming or Man Made Climate Change if you prefer.
So far the inability of the UN to force its Green vision on the world has been blamed on Big Oil, the weather, climate change deniers, right wing bloggers, Conservatives, Republicans, the Koch Brothers, BP, flat earthers and now its the people’s fault for not pushing their politicians harder for the drudge of the Green Agrarian society, ruled by one world government, the UN, and financed by a one world bank controlled by, the UN.
After 3 very public COP failures in a row, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Chief Christiana Figueres blames the ordinary citizens of the world for not sharing her and Hugo Chavez’s anti-capitalist agenda: Read the rest of this entry
As the great Global Warming Scam continues to unravel one thing is becoming clear, without the bi-partisan support of all political parties, Climate Disruption is really a socialist/liberal/eco mentalist agenda concerned mostly with wealth redistribution and the bizarre desire to abandon post industrial revolution living standards.
News that Texas Governor Rick Perry is going to stand in the US 2012 Presidential Elections were greeted with howls of hysteria and derision by the left with the Guardian giving a platform to the junk science NGO and eco terrorist supporting Grist.org.
The Republican victory in the US mid term elections on 2010 brought an immediate change in climate for the Climate Scammers with the announcement that it was “heads on poles time” for the junk scientists and other AGW scammers: Read the rest of this entry
