COP18 – The Depression Phase
Posted by Tory Aardvark
COP18 in Doha could well be the penultimate UN Climate Circus in its present form.
The COP18 website had at one time a counter for the number of visa applications to attend the COP, then with just 20 days until the start of COP18 the counter suddenly vanished from the website.
Even before COP18 started the atmosphere was poisoned for the environmentalists because the COP18 President is pro Shale Gas, from the outset the conference has taken place in an atmosphere of mistrust, loathing and paranoia.
Then in a bizarre turn of events that not even the fertile mind of Hunter S Thompson could have conceived, just about everything that could be done to derail the conference has been done, Fear and Loathing in Doha really is the best description.
The Great Anthropogenic Global Warming scam is going through the five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance:
The Kyoto Protocol died in Copenhagen in December 2009. Why, then, are climate change officials, including our own, meeting a third time since then and, instead of finalising burial arrangements, still talking about extending Kyoto to tackle climate change?
The answer is simple: the international community of climate change officials is going through the five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance.
The Kyoto Protocol had its last rites read in Bali in 2007.
By 2009 the warmists were angry:
Next came anger. The idea that developing countries would not go along with the rich world’s proposals was intolerable. They were presented an offer they could not refuse – as much as $US100 billion over a decade to take action to reduce emissions. This was presented as charity. In truth it was an irresistible bribe.
Cancun COP16 and Durban COP17 saw the bargaining phase, and the first acknowledgement that the Great Man Made Global Warming scam was dying.
At the Doha negotiations concluding this week, it was clear the fourth stage of grief, depression, was setting in. A number of countries, including Australia, did not send ministers. Many NGO booths were empty. Greenpeace did not engage in the usual shenanigans for the TV cameras. This was the smallest, quietest climate change negotiation in a decade.
COP19 in Warsaw will most likely see the last COP meeting as they have existed, but rest assured, the people and businesses involved in the climate boondoggle will go away, lick their wounds and return with a new scary fear story which only they can save us from with lots of taxes, more state control and for our own good an unelected World Government staffed by the politically correct.
