After all the wasted time, money, hotel bills and stupid dancing tricks this is the result of COP17.
DURBAN, South Africa — A U.N. climate conference reached a hard-fought agreement Sunday on a far-reaching program meant to set a new course for the global fight against climate change.
The 194-party conference agreed to start negotiations on a new accord that would ensure that countries will be legally bound to carry out any pledges they make. It would take effect by 2020 at the latest.
The deal doesn’t explicitly compel any nation to take on emissions targets, although most emerging economies have volunteered to curb the growth of their emissions.
Real good hyperbole! But, what we have here is that they agreed to agree to continue to find something they can agree on. That’s all folks! No limits, no penalties, no taxes, no carbon trading, no anything, . AKA another gigantic United Nations FAIL.
Meanwhile we’ll take glee in the fact they’ll never get Congress to ratify whatever piece of crap they manage to try to ram up the posterior of the planet and the United States.
