Monty Hall would have been impressed by this train wreck of a deal
Now that the Concun Climate Conference is over we have everyone scurrying about telling us that a big ‘deal’ was made. They got no extension of Kyoto, no new treaty, nothing legally binding. Basically what has come out of Concun is the only kind of real global warming we have, which is hot air from the United Nations abetted by the lamestream media and some so-called scientists. So, what did they con everyone out of? Oh, only a $100 billion transfer of wealth per annum, that’s all. Sounds way better than anything that was ever behind door #1, #2 or #3 on the TV show ‘Let’s Make a Deal.’
It seems to me that every time they worry about climate change it cost us money. Hundred’s of millions of dollars may be transferred to so-called ‘poorer’ countries from the so-called ‘wealthy’ counties under the guise of saving them all from global warming. Never you mind about the 56 million people who die annually from real problems like AIDS, Cancer, smoking, heart disease, starvation and other things! We need hundreds of millions of dollars to prevent non-existent anthropogenic global warming! Never mind about those other people who die, they don’t count!
I bet that dictators around the globe are probably having a big celebration today because they’re on the verge of the biggest screw job since Bernie Madoff. They’ll be getting money for nothing that will have little or no controls over its dispersal. Want to place a bet about how much of this will actually go to climate related things vs. how much will end up in numbered Swiss bank accounts? I bet Las Vegas wouldn’t give you odds on that one.
Below are some comments from a Telegraph article about this so-called ‘deal,’ aka gigantic screwjob. I’ve placed my comments below their comments in bold italic, highlighting how this is a big con job from Concun.
What has been achieved?
Campaigners claim it has placed UN talks back on track after the disaster at Copenhagen. Countries agreed a ‘balanced package’ that will keep temperature rise below 2C (3.6F).
It stops short of a legal treaty, but commits all countries to cutting emissions for the first time under the UN.
So, basically, about 15,000 people, who spewed carbon getting to/from and while there, didn’t get jack shit. Many of them did sign up to ban DHMO though, bless their little pea brains.
How did they do it?
Haunted by the Copenhagen summit, the host country Mexico tried to focus on areas of agreement instead of seeking an ambitious full treaty.
It also insisted on transparency rather than closed-door talks among major powers. This and an unrelenting positive mood made it difficult for trouble makers to complain.
So, we have Mexico, a country now run by drug cartels, trying to tell the whole world how we should do things. Talk about some big cojones, that about takes the cake in my book. Note the ‘agreement instead of ambitious full treaty,’ which means they already knew this was DOA before they got there.
How will countries cut emissions?
More than 80 countries, including the US, EU and China, put forward voluntary emissions cuts in Copenhagen. These have now been made a formal agreement under the UN process.
Yes, a formal agreement that isn’t legally binding, but never mind that, they had to come up with something to justify all those Pina Coladas and parties.
How will emissions be measured?
China has always been uncomfortable about having its emissions measured by the outside world, claiming only rich countries that can afford the technology should be monitored.
However the US has insisted it is only fair that all countries are exposed to the same amount of scrutiny.
In an uneasy compromise the two superpowers have agreed that it is only fair that the world’s biggest emitters agree to international standards to measure their carbon.
So, we’re now up to an agreement that’s not legally binding, where no one’s in agreement about who’s going to measure emissions, or how they’ll be measured. From what I see of China no one will ever measure their CO2 anyway. They’ll keep on pumping out pollution while collecting money and laugh all the way to the bank.
What has the Kyoto Protocol got to do with it?
The Kyoto Protocol commits rich countries to cutting emissions. It was very important to developing countries that targets in the treaty are extended beyond 2012 because it is currently the only legal climate change agreement the world has.
However rich countries are nervous of committing to the treaty as it does not include China or the US.
In the end a compromise was found where the Kyoto Protocol will be continued, but targets for emissions cuts do not need to be decided until all countries makes cuts.
It is hoped that eventually the Kyoto Protocol will be continued as part of a legal treaty that commits all countries to cutting emissions.
The reality is the Kyoto Protocol has absolutely nothing to do with it. Re-read the above if you didn’t get it. We have “In the end a compromise was found where the Kyoto Protocol will be continued, then the next line says “It is hoped that eventually the Kyoto Protocol will be continued.” So which is it? I’d say that since we don’t have a legally binding agreement that the Kyoto Protocol is deader than a doornail and now has nothing to do with anything.
What does it mean for the UK?
Britain has already committed to cutting emissions by 34 per cent by 2020 under domestic law. But the Government has promised to increase this to 42 per cent if there is a global deal, which is now looking increasingly likely.
It means nothing for the UK. They’re already in the process of committing economic suicide and don’t need any help from the UN. Their government already needs to be committed to an insane asylum. I think those student riots are merely the beginning of a pissed-off British population who are figuring out that their government has bankrupted their country, one that was once one of the richest on the planet.
Is there any money on the table?
Countries have agreed to set up a £60 ($100bn) per annum ‘Green Climate Fund’ from 2020 to help poor countries adapt to climate change.
It could also help developing countries, including India and China, develop green energy like wind turbines and solar panels. The UK will be expected to contribute around £1.5bn per annum towards the fund.
Ahh, the heart of the matter – MONEY! Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! Let’s see India and China are “developing” countries? Hmmmmm…according to Wikipedia, based upon GDP, in 2009 China was the 3rd largest economy and India was the 11th. But never you mind that! They ‘desperately’ need some of those hundreds of millions you know. They’re ‘poor’ you know. The 3rd largest economy in the world being considered as a ‘poor,’ ‘developing country,’ should tell you about all you need to know about how insane this agreement is.
How will it stop deforestation?
Deforestation causes a fifth of global emissions so protecting trees is claimed to be key step in mitigating global warming.
A new fund called Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation or REDD will be set up that will pay poor nations not to chop down trees.
The text includes safeguards to make sure the scheme respects the rights of indigenous people and biodiversity.
Language around carbon markets has been left deliberately vague so it is possible in the future for businesses to make money from ‘carbon offsetting’.
Wetlands will also be protected by allowing countries to offset carbon by protecting peatland such as the Yorkshire Moors.
Evidently they don’t care about global emissions causes 1-2-3-4, just #5. Oh, and you can bet that new fund will also come with a herd of new bureaucrats who will be overpaid by the UN. Those ‘safeguards’ are merely another way for them to come back for more money later because they won’t have enough, they never do. Also, note that ‘vague’ language remark that leaves the door wide open for businesses to screw more money out of this ‘deal.’ Peatland? WTF’s up with that? A way of throwing a bone to the morons who run the UK?
Why is Bolivia so angry?
The Plurinational State of Boliva believes that any UN agreement should ‘protect the rights of Mother Earth’.
The South American country believes that the targets are not strong enough to stop catastrophic climate change and signing up to a deal would be ‘tantamount’ to genocide. They are threatening to keep fighting within the UN process for a stronger deal.
You can bet the real problem is that it’s ‘tantamount’ to moneycide. They would have been able to screw more money out of this deal if they got what they wanted, they didn’t, so they’re pissed off. No Swiss bank accounts for them!
Anything else controversial?
Saudi Arabia won the right to get climate change subsidies for developing ‘clean’ coal, oil or gas. Carbon capture and storage or CCS takes the carbon emissions from fossil fuels and stores it under ground.
So, one of the oil countries selling billions of oil also needs subsidies? Wow! they must be ‘poor’ like the Chinese are! Well, I guess sooner or later they’ll run out of oil and have tons of leftover holes under their useless sand to sequester CO2 in. They have to keep those fleets of private jets, palaces and Rolls Royce’s going you know, not to mention the price of those gold-plated toilets is rising. May as well let the suckers, I mean infidels, pay for their research and development.
Who are the heroes and villains?
Japan came out as an early villain after refusing to sign up to a second period of the Kyoto Protocol but was persuaded to compromise.
By the end of the conference Bolivia was the trouble maker refusing to sign up the deal because they claimed it was too weak to keep temperature rise below 2C.
Mexico has been the hero throughout, with one delegate describing the President Patricia Espinosa as a ‘goddess’ for guiding the talks so well.
The UK Government has been praised for leading efforts to find a compromise on the Kyoto Protocol.
Naughty naughty Japan, refused to sign something that’s retarded so they’re labeled a ‘villain.’ Bolivia is only a ‘trouble maker’ because they raised a stink because El Leader won’t get as fat of a Swiss bank account. Mexico is a ‘hero?’ The same Mexico who’s overrun with drug cartels? The same Mexico with the corrupt government who wants to tell everyone else how to run their country while their own turns into a steaming pile of shit? The suicidal UK government gets ‘praised’ for being, ummm….suicidal? Something wrong with this picture, it’s warped, very warped. Especially when you look at what they consider ‘poor’ countries to be, which means that the real ‘poor’ countries will get little or nothing out of this ‘deal.’
Will this save the planet?
Not yet. The latest scientific analysis suggests that the pledges currently on the table will only get the world 60 per cent of the way towards the emissions cuts that are hoped will keep global temperatures rising by more than 2C this century. However the deal agrees that ambitious must be increased.
All this and it won’t save the planet? There’s nothing to ‘save’ it from and you can damn well bet that they will alway need more money to ‘save the planet’ because this is about greed, power, control and the redistribution of wealth, nothing more, nothing less. Climate change is merely the excuse du jour.
Is this really a success?
Yes, after Copenhagen there were fears that the UN process would collapse. It is embarrassing for the UN not to have a full consensus but the agreement of every country except Bolivia still makes it a very strong agreement. Even though the deal is not legally binding it puts in place decisions that will help the world draw up a new treaty in the future.
Success? Let’s see, no new legally binding treaty, no extension of the Kyoto Protocol, but it’s a success? That’s a pretty piss-poor idea of ‘success’ if you ask me. I guess it’s a ‘success’ because they think they’ll be getting $100 billion dollars to pretty much do with as they please with little or no control over who gets what. Talk about’pork!’ Not to mention I bet the mafia is salivating already as they have already had the ‘success’ of ripping off the EU carbon trading scheme for a mere 7 billion Euros.
What happens next?
The world now has a year to resolve any outstanding issues over the final form of a legal treaty that commits the world to binding targets. There are high hopes this could happen in a UN meeting in Durban, South Africa next year.
However, a deal will need America to up its target which is unlikely while there is a Republican Senate.
So there you have it. No legal treaty, no Kyoto Protocol, no nothing. They’ll have to wait until Durban to try to get this ripoff extended so they can complete the con game. They do have it right that with a Republican Senate this is already a dead horse and will justifiably remain that way. Hopefully by then more people will awaken to the scam and put it to a halt before further financial damage is done.
You can bet that if this scheme doesn’t pan out that the UN will find another ‘emergency’ to be used to extract billions of dollars. I bet they’re already scheming as I type.
Yet more CO2 Insanity!
