Navigating the American Carbon World (with the UN)

There is much activity in the UN climate arena at the moment, as they push for yet another “Global Agreement on Climate Change”

At the moment, UNFCC executive secretary, Christina Figueres is boasting that they have an agreement to come to an agreement by 2015. Whilst it is to be hoped that this agreement to agree goes the way of previous ones, it highlights that they haven’t gone away and are determined to keep pressing on, no matter that the AGW paradigm is collapsing.

She gave a speech this week in San Francisco, entitled Navigating the American Carbon World

Hurricane Sandy is not evidence of climate change

This month, the United Nation’s Secretary General has repeatedly spoken of extreme storms like Hurricane Sandy, harsher droughts and floods because of climate change. Stating the science is clear and undebatable, he predicted even larger climate shocks unless the world urgently reduced greenhouse gas emissions. Yesterday, 125 climates qualified on climate responded with an open letter in the Financial Post, disputing such assertions. Continue reading

The World Meteorological Organization — the United Nations’ “authoritative voice on weather, climate and water” — issued a press release this week saying greenhouse gases in the atmosphere had reached a record high. Continue reading

Flatulence debunked as major cause of global warming

Curbing methane emissions from farting animals may now be ranked lower as an environmental issue at the UN, but the livestock industry remains a focus.

Obama’s U-Turn: UN Climate Talks Going Nowhere

After one week of UN climate talks in Thailand, not a single country has made a fresh commitment, and US negotiators stunned delegates by calling for any new treaty to be ‘flexible’ and ‘dynamic’ rather than legally binding, representing a complete U-turn on its previous position. Continue reading

Hank Campbell: UN Agrees To Do Nothing On Climate Change, Arranges More Meetings

Being on a UN committee to discuss climate change must be a lot of fun; you get to fly to exotic locations and no ever expects you to get anything done. I guess that applies to the UN overall. Continue reading

UNFCCC Newsletter #31

It is not true that UNFCCC stands for “United Nations for Союз Советских Социалистических” (UN for Soyuz Sovetskikh Sotsialisticheskikh or Union of People’s Councils). In fact it is supposed to be the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change and entirely coincidental that the organization is densely populated with anti-democratic big “S” Socialist anti-capitalist zealots.

Steve Milloy: Models, Not Climate, Are Hypersensitive to Carbon Dioxide

The Kyoto Protocol is expiring this year, having accomplished what climate skeptics expected — nothing. Manmade greenhouse gas emissions and atmospheric greenhouse are up while global temperature have gone nowhere, the latter a trend that started years before Kyoto went into effect.

But before the international climate kleptocracy descends en masse to its next exotic location (Doha, Qatar in November 2012) to try breathing life into the Kyoto Protocol, someone should check under the hood to review what is trying to be achieved and why. Continue reading

Board members of the U.N’s Green Climate Fund (GCF) must rise above politics when they meet for the first time later this week to help channel $100 billion a year towards the world’s poorest nations to fight the catastrophic effects of rising temperatures, and to act as a springboard to a global climate deal in 2015.

Dennis Ambler: Things More Worrisome than AGW: UN seeks to control 70% of Earth’s surface – The Oceans

There are many politicians, both Democrat and Republican, who constantly press for the US to ratify “The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS),” commonly referred to as LOST, an international agreement that was concluded in 1982, and came into force in 1994. Continue reading

Profits on Carbon Credits Drive Output of a Harmful Gas

When the United Nations wanted to help slow climate change, it established what seemed a sensible system.

Sensible to whom, one might wonder. They are talking about a scam far worse than Montreal, the mean the Kyoto Protocol. Continue reading

via Bishop Hill: Madrid 1995 – the last day of climate science
