The hucksters, charlatans, communists and rent-seekers gathering in Paris are celebrating:
Negotiators from 195 countries agreed Saturday on a blueprint deal aimed at reducing global carbon emissions and limiting global warming, a significant but far from conclusive step in the multinational effort to keep climate change in check. The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) posted on its website a copy of the draft agreement, which officials have been working on intensively for some time.
The document addresses deforestation, food security, poverty and a host of other issues, with chunks of the document focused on what developed countries can do to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by a yet to be determined level by 2050. This includes what they can do to help other countries. To this point, one line in the draft states, “Developed countries shall provide developing countries with long-term, scaled-up, predictable, new and additional finance, technology and capability-building.” Officials will now work through next week at the COP21 conference in Paris to craft a complete, final agreement.
Doing so may not be easy, but that didn’t stop those involved in the process from celebrating Saturday’s announcement. “One more step in writing of history,” tweeted Christiana Figueres, the executive secretary of the UNFCCC. “#ADP adopts the Draft Paris Outcome and forwards it to #COP21 for finalizing.”
Except the joke’s on us, because none of it — none of it — will make a damn bit of difference as far as the “climate” is concerned. It’s all just a scam to separate guilty fools from their money, score political points in the minds of simplistic idiots, enrich themselves while beggaring first-world countries for no reason (other than than obvious one that that’s where the money is) and allowing the developing world to keep on “polluting” as much as it wishes.
Reduce carbon-dioxide emissions by 2050? Just stop breathing, and get all this over with much faster.
