Pre Rio+20 climate talks in Bonn, another epic fail for the UNFCCC headed by Christiana Figueres
Poor old Global Warming Climate Change Climate Disruption Climate Change after so many name changes and failed cataclysmic events, Climate Change has been dropped for “sustainable development” and publicly demoted by such luminaries as Barack Hussein Obama.
The purpose of the 2 week long meeting in Bonn was to set the framework and agenda for the next big warming alarmist meeting, the Rio+20 Earth Summit next month, when the Green climate zealots will ignore the possibilities of video conferencing and hypocritically emit tons of CO2 when 50,000 of them get into those evil winged machines and fly to Brazil.
The Bonn meeting was supposed to prepare the way for the bright new shiny Green scam of sustainable development, instead there was no agreement about anything really, and what little progress there was at COP17 Durban started to unravel:
At the talks, countries were supposed to set out a workplan on negotiations that should result in a new global climate treaty, to be drafted by the end of 2015 and to come into force in 2020. But participants told the Guardian they were downbeat, disappointed and frustrated that the decision to work on a new treaty – reached after marathon late-running talks last December in Durban – was being questioned.
China and India, both rapidly growing economies with an increasing share of global emissions, have tried to delay talks on such a treaty. Instead of a workplan for the next three years to achieve the objective of a new pact, governments have only managed to draw up a partial agenda. “It’s incredibly frustrating to have achieved so little,” said one developed country participant. “We’re stepping backwards, not forwards.”
The only developed country participant left will be a Green Liberal Climate zealot from the EU, Canada and Japan having left Kyoto already, the US never signed and China, Russia and India are in no hurry to destroy their economies with carbon stupidity.
Connie Hedegaard, the EU climate chief, said: “The world cannot afford that a few want to backtrack from what was agreed in Durban only five months ago. Durban was – and is – a delicately balanced package where all elements must be delivered at the same pace. It is not a pick and choose menu. It is very worrisome that attempts to backtrack have been so obvious and time-consuming in the Bonn talks over the last two weeks.”
Things are really bad when Comrade Connie, the unelected EU Climate Commissar cannot put a positive Green spin on the proceedings.
There was also little progress on the key issue of the financing by rich countries of actions in the developing world. Meeting in Bonn, negotiators and officials from around the world haggled over the set-up of a ‘Green Climate Fund’ that would channel cash from the developed world to poorer countries, to help them cut greenhouse gas emissions and cope with the effects of climate change.
Probably because there is no money, the politicians know that their voters are wise to the Climate Change scam and there is one thing politicians fear far more than the manufactured threat of Anthropogenic Global Warming, and that is being voted out of office.
Tove Maria Ryding, coordinator for climate policy at Greenpeace International, said: “Here in Bonn we’ve clearly seen that the climate crisis is not caused by lack of options and solutions, but lack of political action. It’s absurd to watch governments sit and point fingers and fight like little kids while the scientists explain about the terrifying impacts of climate change and the fact that we have all the technology we need to solve the problem while creating new green jobs.”
Still more reasons why Greenpeace should be ignored, there are no such things as lasting Green jobs, a report by US House of Representatives in September 2011 concluded that globally Green jobs have been a myth.
If you need further proof of the illusion of Green jobs then Spain is the case in point for a country that Greened its economy early on, each Green job killed 2.2 jobs in convential industries.
Christiana Figueres really hit the nail on the head when she complained that “Citizens Are Not Pushing For Climate Action“, which would account for why the politicians are doing nothing.
To Green environmentalists, the UN and all those complicit in the Climate Change scam democracy is something they want suspended, so they can save us all from a terrible death by CO2.
The major lesson to be learned here, is beware of people wanting to save you from a crisis they have manufactured.
