Quoted from Reuters, Widening agreement that next months Copenhagen summit will likely fall short of a legally binding treaty runs the risk of a longer-term stalemate, which at worst could drag on like the Doha trade round, experts say.
No. Didnt make sense of that at all.
The gist though seems to be that the Copenhagen talkswhich may be one of the largest liberal power-grabs in historyare starting to have terrible problems.
…[G]overnments should still focus on trying to get a legally binding treaty in Copenhagen meant to help avert heatwaves, droughts, rising sea levels, more powerful storms and species extinctions.
All that, eh? Gosh. It is important to understand that taking billions of dollars from hard-working Americans and simply handing it over to a bunch of out-of-work Ghanians will prevent a drought. This is what the treaty writers call climate debt. It is a term that exists neither in climatology nor in economics, but solely in the minds of the liberal authors of the bill. And as you can guess, America has a whole lot of it. And the only way we can save the world is by sending 0.7% of our annual GDP to the United Nations, who will in turn hand it out to whomever they wish. This is your fault for owning an air conditioner.
Update! Now, Copenhagen will finally end all world hunger!
Recession and high unemployment in many developed nations has distracted many governments from fighting climate change.
Not to mention the astonishing collapse of evidence that any of this is a possibility.
Yvo de Boer, head of the U.N. Climate Change Secretariat, suggested mid-2010 to tie down all legal points and keep momentum from Copenhagen, after which U.S. mid-term elections in November may play an unwelcome role.
One might think unwelcome is a very strong probability.
Божію Поспѣшествующею Милостію Мы, Дима Грозный Императоръ и Самодержецъ Всероссiйскiй, цѣсарь Московскiй. The Czar was born in the steppes of Russia in 1267, and was cheated out of total control of all Russia upon the death of Boris Mikhailovich, who replaced Alexander Yaroslav Nevsky in 1263. However, in 1283, our Czar was passed over due to a clerical error and the rule of all Russia went to his second cousin Daniil (Даниил Александрович), whom Czar still resents. As a half-hearted apology, the Czar was awarded control over Muscovy, inconveniently located 5,000 miles away just outside Chicago. He now spends his time seething about this and writing about other stuff that bothers him.
