2012 was an unprecedented year of disaster and defeat for the Greens and warming alarmists, it was a year that on the face of it offered much hope to the watermelons, in June there was going to be the Rio+20 Earth Summit, COP18 in Doha was going to build on the progress of COP17 and the Durban Platform and the European Union was going to single-handedly enforce a flying tax on the world.
Instead it all went to hell in solar powered hand cart, as Green defeat followed Green defeat.
On January 1st 2012 the EU announced the start of its Green flying tax on all flights in and out of the EU, as global opposition to the Green tax mounted, Comrade Connie Hedegaard, the EU’s unelected Climate Commissar remained bullish and insisted that the world would bow down to her Green will.
Many nations including the US, China and India prohibited their airlines from taking part in the EU flying tax amid threats of a trade war, particularly from China. Finally in November Hedegaard and the EU backed down and suspended their Green flying tax for
forever 12 months.

The Rio+20 UN circus has ended in yet another failure, the switch from the Anthropogenic Global Warming scam to the sustainable development scam has

Greenpeace et al have no one but themselves to blame, they long ago abandoned any pretence at science, caring for the environment or the wildlife they were formed to protect, instead they got behind the great Green con trick of all time, man made climate change.
Now as the whole Climate Change/sustainable development scam has collapsed, those most involved in pushing the junk science and never ending fear stories, have learnt the hard way, the cost of continually crying wolf, people just ignore you. Read the rest of this entry
After the COP17 Durban failure, the next great hope for the warming alarmists was the UN Rio+20 summit in June, not anymore, in an move to reduce confrontation between the various parties attending Climate Change has been dropped from the agenda.
Instead the summit will concentrate on sustainable development which is defined as making sure economies can grow now without endangering resources and the environment for future generations, effectively Climate Change by another name, but by not speaking its name the UN are hoping for agreement.
The outcome however, will more than likely still be another massive fail for the UN, despite changing the date so British PM David Cameron could attend, “Cast Iron” Dave is still not going to Rio. Read the rest of this entry
