Topic: Trying (Futilely) To Keep Up

Didn't do it.

A couple of weeks ago the great global warming bandwagon coughed and spluttered to a halt in Doha, the latest stop on its never-ending world tour. The annual UN climate conference COP18 is no small affair. This is a bandwagon whose riders number in the thousands: motorcades of politicians, buses full of technocrats and policy wonks and jumbo-jets full of hippies travelling half way round the world, (ostensibly) to save the planet from the (allegedly) pressing problem of climate change — Andrew Montford, The Spectator 9 December 2012

At the end of another lavishly-funded U.N. conference that yielded no progress on curbing greenhouse emissions, many of those most concerned about climate change are close to despair. – Barbara Lewis and Alister Doyle, Reuters, 9 December 2012

Where's the United Nations when you need a responsible international presence to deal with even so obvious a made-up problem for civilization?

Oh, wait . . .

Update:

Meanwhile, behind the scenes, under the table . . .

Nothing happened either.

Bad news for the polar bear crowd.

Thanks to the Committee for A Constructive Tomorrow those of us keeping an eye on these charlatans, intent on transferring billions from developed nations to those that have failed to keep pace, we learned on December 8th that “The negotiations here in Doha have gone into overtime.”

As reported by Craig Rucker, CFACT Executive Director, “After going until after 3 AM last night, negotiations resumed today. Negotiators have sprung a dangerous proposal on the conference at the 11th hour. This time they have inserted a ‘Loss & Damage Mechanism’ into the final text which would require developed countries like the U.S. to pay poor nations for climate damages supposedly resulting from extreme weather events.”

The conference ended on Friday and the last money grabbing gambit failed. It was time for the 7,000 “observers” and its delegates to go home, all knowing that even the Kyoto Protocols will end in 2014 and that COP18 was yet another monumental failure.

And so - happily - it goes.

Belated Double-Take:

Assuming that it's not politically-incorrect to mock Climate Alarmists . . .

That is.

Because if it isn't, I'm done here.

Pretty much.
