More bad news for warming alarmist central, this time from a pillar of the Church of Climatology, the Norway based Center for International Climate and Environmental Research (Cicero).
A report by Cicero has concluded that the chances of an effective international treaty being signed in 2015, are about as likely as the Arctic being ice free in 2012, or was it 2020?
The world is actually further away from a climate deal than it was 16 years ago when the Kyoto Protocol was adopted, decades of the annual UN Climate Circus have achieved nothing it is against this background that the Cicero researchers decided to try an ascertain what an effective climate agreement would consist of.
Their findings are really bad news for the UN backed AGW boondoggle: Read the rest of this entry
Its business as usual in Big Green world, as their Climate Religion Scam comes apart around them, the policy makers and propagandists continue to push ideas that are never going to win them new friends or stem the tide of dwindling support.
Their faith is either touching, or stupid because they still believe that their boondoggle will come to fruition in Paris in 2015, that all the countries of the world will sign up to a legally binding climate treaty.
A key part of the climate treaty is further emissions cuts and wealth redistribution, the warming alarmists will say that wealth redistribution is a denier lie, as usual they are either wrong or lying, in the words of UN IPCC official Ottmar Edenhoffer “ we redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy.”
Wealth Redistribution or “Climate Justice” is sanitized Greenspeak, really it is all about the 2 core left wing principles: apportionment of blame and payback. Read the rest of this entry
This latest piece of news for Big Green is going to cause “unprecedented” levels of Green outrage and wailing, already at record levels over Australia dumping its Green carbon tax.
Now it transpire the UK has dared to cut its budget for promoting climate religion overseas by 39%, and to make matters worse, all this took place while a believer in the cult of man made climate change was Foreign Secretary.
The Greens, rent seekers and crony capitalists, sometimes called the Green Blob are shocked that these drastic cuts will shatter the UK’s image as a global leader in the fight against the non existent problem of Anthropogenic Global Warming.
One of the memes continually pushed by the warming alarmist industry is the old Liberal/Socialist myth of leading by example, we will lead the way and the rest of the population will follow inspired by the moral superiority and nobleness of our cause.
The only problem with the leading way theory is no one follows, after years of leading the way in January 2014 it dawned on European Energy Commissioner Günther Oettinger that: Read the rest of this entry
The UN Climate Circus met in Bonn, Germany last week, though with the exception of dedicated Green news outlets and blogs the whole event passed with no main stream media attention, such is the state of global warming fear fatigue these days.
The divisions are along the usual lines of who will cut emissions and by how much, the lack of contributions from the so called rich countries to the Green Climate Fund and Loss and Damage, more commonly known as wealth redistribution.
Loss and Damage was the reason that COP19 was dead in the water, even before it had started. Barack Obama instructed US Climate Envoys prior to COP19 that giving away trillions of dollars for years to pay for the guilt of being an industrialized nation would not “float with the voters.”
A few months on little has changed as the latest round of UN climate talks achieved nothing: Read the rest of this entry
“If is the middle word in life” said Marlon Brando’s character Colonel Kilgore in the movie Apocalypse Now.
Generations of computer programmers know If is a conditional, as in the conditional If, used in many programming languages, only in warming alarmist world are conditionals an absolute, where if and could, are actually synonyms for will.
When you couple this skewing of language with vested interests reporting on vested interests, you end up with the a classic Green non story like “Value of coal assets ‘could be halved’ if world goes low-carbon“.
Conditionals are of course based upon probability, and obviously there is a chance that the entire world could decide to believe the Green meme, leave fossil fuel reserves in the ground and decide to follow a dimly lit future based upon intermittent Green approved energy generation.
The big question, is it likely? Read the rest of this entry
The 20th century successors to the failed dictator Napoleon Bonaparte, the EU are having their retreat from Moscow moment, as EU Climate Policy comes apart, quite literally at the seams.
The Climate Commissar Connie Hedegaard, Greens, Liberals and other beneficiaries of the warming alarmist industry are pushing hard for binding targets for renewable energy for 2030, while on the other side of the argument countries, industry and politicians are against binding targets.
Just before the UNFCCC COP19 climate circus in Warsaw last year, Hedegaard sort of admitted that the EU Climate Policy was not supported by all member states and that some countries are no longer taking part, for example the Czech Republic and Poland, the COP19 hosts. Poland is currently involved in a legal standoff with the EU, which if the EU lost would totally destroy EU Climate Policy in a single stroke. Read the rest of this entry
