UN Climate Talks In Bonn Fail

The latest round of UN Climate Talks in Bonn have failed with the usual lack of trust between the parties.

The latest round of UN Climate Talks in Bonn have failed with the usual lack of trust between the parties.

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

The Classic Green Non Story – Coal Assets Could Be Halved If…..

Coal assets could be worth less than half of their current market value if the world agrees tougher climate targets according to a report by the bank HSBC

Coal assets could be worth less than half of their current market value if the world agrees tougher climate targets according to a report by the bank HSBC

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

A Week in Green Warming Alarmist World – Communism, Fear and Blame

The-Greens

If 2013 was the worst for the Big Green Machine since records began, then 2014 is rapidly shaping up to be an even worse year with the Green decline slipping into hyper drive as more politicians run away from the Green Agenda.

There have been far too many Green stories to write about all of them so here goes with a weekly roundup.

First off the blocks is Christiana Figueres head of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) who thinks that the only answer to stop the global warming that isn’t happening is Communism. Figueres is a long time communist and protegé of the late Hugo Chavez, and was among those that cheered Chavez’s infamous COP15 silent and terrible ghost in the room speech which referred to capitalism and democracy.

Being Green is all about blame and fear, blaming someone or something so that you have something to fear, bread and butter to the warming alarmist industry. So no surprises then in a new Green report they have finally decided on a country to blame for Global Warming Read the rest of this entry

Future EU Climate Policy – Environmentalists Are Horrified

Polar Vortex was cause of the bitter winter of 1812 which hindered Napoleon's long retreat from Russia. Now 200 years later Napoleon's successors, the EU are in full retreat on their Climate Policy.

Polar Vortex was cause of the bitter winter of 1812 which hindered Napoleon’s long retreat from Russia. Now 200 years later Napoleon’s successors, the EU are in full retreat on their Climate Policy.

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

The UNFCCC, Lima, Paris And The Road To Nowhere

The dust has settled on COP19, mega quantities of Green Turd polish have failed to disguise the fact that COP19 was yet another dismal failure for the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

COP19 was most the divided COP meeting so far, with the Green NGOs and the other self appointed representatives of “Civil Society staging a walk out, followed soon afterwards by the Venezuelan vice minister Claudia Salerno accusing Connie Hedegaard of damaging not only COP19, but COP15 as well.

The reality of the collapse of the Global Warming Boondoggle has at last percolated through to the highest levels of the UNFCCC and according to the 3 past and present leaders of the UN wealth redistribution scheme the future is far from bright: Read the rest of this entry

COP19 Postmortem – Bring On The Green Turd Polish

Even sprinkling glitter on COP19 won't make a shine.

Even sprinkling glitter on COP19 won’t make a shine, dull or otherwise

The COP19 Climate Circus has finally ended, despite the Greens and wealth re-distributors setting the bar for success this year, even lower than in previous years, COP19 still failed to deliver.

The pattern for acrimony was set at COP15, Copenhagen in 2009 and in each successive COP meeting the acrimony and bickering has got worse, culminating in the unelected Green NGOs walking out of COP19 after the wealth re-distribution scam know as loss and damage failed to gain much traction.

COP19 was a disaster, just as much on the global stage as in the stadium in Warsaw.

Overshadowed by coal in Poland, 60 countries did not send ministers to COP19 thus preventing any global agreement from being signed, Australia and Canada said they were not going to give any more money away, Japan decided to reduce its CO2 ambitions drastically and in Britain David “Call me Dave” Cameron was oozing snake oil and possibly muttering darkly about Green Crap.

Against this background COP19 headed into overtime and at the eleventh hour, for the fifth successive time, produced an agreement that was worth less than the paper it was printed on. Read the rest of this entry

COP19 And The Climate Of Blame, Connie Hedegaard Damaged COP15 And COP19

EU Climate Commissar Connie Hedegaard ""I hope to hear from the blamed for failures at COP15 and COP19

EU Climate Commissar Connie Hedegaard  blamed for failures at COP15 and COP19

One of the joys of the failure of any socialist scheme is the apportionment of blame for the failure, every scheme needs a Stalin style scapegoat for when it all goes to hell in a handcart.

Enter the new Green scapegoat blamed not only for the failure of COP19, but COP15 as well, the one and only EU Climate Commissar Connie Hedegaard.

In an amusing and ironical twist Comrade Connie, a great exponent of the junk science of attribution where by everything that has ever happened, might happen or will happen is attributed to Anthropogenic Global Warming, is now having the same attribution logic applied to her.

Only in this case it is a brand new branch of Green science that evolved during the latter stages of COP19, the attribution of COP failure: Read the rest of this entry

COP19 – Green NGOs To Walk Out Of The Climate Circus

Green NGOs are set to walk out of COP19 talks due to lack to progress in wealth redistribution.

Green NGOs are set to walk out of COP19 talks due to lack to progress in wealth redistribution.

After years of having a hysterical mainstream media pushing the Green fear meme, having politicians desperate to placate their shrill demands the Green NGOs like Greenpeace, WWF, FoE et al are having a tough time adapting to the new reality.

The writing first appeared on the wall at COP18 for the Green NGOs, when their interruptions to the climate talks was for the first time limited to just 30 seconds. A year later and the reality has still not sunk in, Green NGOs are now irrelevant to the COP negotiating process, despite still weaving their Green propaganda and junk science into IPCC Assessment Reports.

COP19 was always going to deliver absolutely nothing,even before the Boy King Obama killed off wealth redistribution loss and damage which effectively delivered the coup de grâce. Read the rest of this entry

COP19 – Aussies In T Shirts Blamed For Loss And Damage Walkout

Aussies in T shirts like Brad and Dan are the reason that COP19 failed.

Casually dressed Aussies like Brad and Dan are the reason that COP19 failed.

As the warming alarmists and UN wealth re-distributors thrash around desperately seeking someone to blame for the 5th Successive COP meeting failure in a row, some incredibly silly and pathetic reasons will be forthcoming.

Like Aussies in T shirts for example.

The Greens have it in for Australia, following Tony Abbott’s crushing defeat of Julia Gillard’s Labor government and her Green allies in the September General Election, the rollback of Green stupidity down under has begun.

Tony Abbott chose not send Environment Minister Greg Hunt to Warsaw, having him instead stay in Australia to begin the process of removing Gillard’s Carbon Tax. Read the rest of this entry

COP19 – Now The Fifth Successive UNFCCC Failure Is Complete

Green propaganda admits that COP19 has stalled, which is Greenwash for crashed and burned

Green propaganda admits that COP19 has stalled, which is Greenwash for crashed and burned

That’s 5 UNFCCC COP failures in a row, an unprecedented record of failure, each Conference of the Parties has disintegrated faster than the COP that preceded it, with COP19 holding the current record.

There was never any doubt, from the outset that COP19 was going to be the biggest failure since records began, what has been surprising is the speed of that collapse, COP19 was effectively dead before it had begun.

It has just taken 5 days for COP19 to realize it was dead and hit the floor.

The make or break issue for COP19 was “loss and damage“, wealth redistribution to us regular folks and that great Green Socialist Barack Obama made sure that loss and damage was deader than Osama Bin Laden, before COP19 even started. Read the rest of this entry
