"The meeting was a disaster,” Lars-Erik Liljelund, the director general of Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt’s office, said in an interview today. “The process needs to be changed because if we continue like this, we won’t be any further a year from now."
The "unprecedented meeting", as President Obama pronounced, has yielded a major blow as the treaty is tabled for a year. Maybe we'll get some more e-mails public to prove that this is the greatest hoax in the history of science.
More from the Bloomberg article:
Rich countries offered to provide $100 billion a year by 2020 to help poor nations reduce carbon emissions, which is conditional on developing countries cutting gas discharges, according to the text. They may also pay out $30 billion in aid from next year through 2012.
“In terms of finance, it is vague, it is a big soup,” Pa Ousman Jarju, a Gambian delegate, said in an interview in Copenhagen. “It’s well below what is required.”
Well BELOW what is required -- got that. $30 billion NOW and $100 billion in ten years is simply NOT ENOUGH CASH for Gambia and other countries.
What did Obama say?
The agreement was reached after President Barack Obama had last-minute talks with Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao, Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva and South African President, Jacob Zuma in Copenhagen today. It was then taken to all nations and most backed it. -- from the article
Nations should try to keep the global temperature increase before industrialization “below 2 degrees” Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit), according to the agreement. Envoys from the U.S., Europe and China have supported the 2 degrees target. Poorer nations and environmental groups wanted 1 or 1.5 degrees, fearing a higher increase will raise sea levels and make coastal cities and some island states uninhabitable.
How carbon does it take to raise or lower the earth's temperature? This is the most absurd aspect of the global warming hysterical fear mongers. Within the last several months for example, we've discovered enormous algae beds that consume 10% of the world's Carbon dioxide. Moreover, these computer models predicting the elevated sea levels etc...still haven't explained (or been recalculated) for the decline in temperatures.
Dr. William Gray, who has predicted an active hurricane season in 2010, has denounced global warming hysteria as "indoctrination" and "one-sided".
From the press release: he warned that 'ClimateGate' revelations coming out of the University of East Anglia are but the tip of a giant iceberg of a well organized international climate warming conspiracy that has been gathering momentum for the past 25 years.
These e-mails are not the only question by skeptics, it's the straw breaking the camel's back. For years the IPCC has ignored amazing parallels in solar activity and previous warming patterns. Ice thinning in the arctic is being countered by the thickening and expansion in the Antarctic. The computer models are full of extreme worse case scenarios and treated as fact instead of a hypothesis.
