COP17 Day 2 The Gloom Continues
Day 2 at the Climate Synod in Durban and all is not well, Canada is the new great evil and the epic failure of Kyoto is about to be carried out in a body bag, but then there is also Brazil where economic reality is also biting hard.
Brazil despite all the propaganda from those that believe in Anthropogenic Global Warming, wants a “reflection phase” before signing a global economic suicide pact, latest news is, there is a vote in Brazil to change the forest code and campaigners and NGO’s are very worried that this could result in a loss of forest many times the size of Western Europe or something like that, no mention of the right of the Brazilain people to have the same economic luxuries that the developed nations already enjoy.
Canada is now the great Satan for wanting to withdraw from the Kyoto protocol when in fact Kyoto has been dead for years and there is a no chance of an extension, or successor to Kyoto.
The lack of commitment from Barack Obama’s administration is being described as outrageous by Greenpeace, WWF, FoE et al, according to lead US negotiator Jonathan Pershing there are an infinite number of ways to skin the global warming cat, it’s just the US is spoilt for choice.
Durban will achieve nothing except more demands for our money from countries like the Maldives who pretend their islands at risk from the urban myth of rising sea levels and all the while behind everyone’s backs the Maldives are having a new airport built.
The new Maldives airport is designed to be in service long after the Maldives according to their Government, would have slid beneath the waves.
