Well that's what it was, a two week expenses paid holiday in the Danish capital with the prospect of another bash in Mexico. Combined with the ability to indulge in some self righteous posturing on the world stage what politician would turn it down.
They should all be shot.
I volunteer my services, I don't even want paying.
China - bad Mo fo's who will do what they want anyway
U.S. Bad Mo fo's who will do what they want but will pretend to save the world as the Nobel winner lies through his teeth and offers to shut a steel plant in South Philly to save the Seychelles
Africa - all Nations give us money lots off it
We have no heavy industry to chop and reduce carbon emissions but we need 100 Billion a year to replace our aging Lear Jets, Rolls Royce and Ferrari's
U.K. Despite being skint and a small country we like to be the big man of the world
We offer to pay for everything and shut all off our heavy industry to reduce our carbon footprints
We scrap all our militarty jets in an offer to reduce the RAF's Air Miles and stop it raining in Ethiopia
Gordon Promises 100 Billion himself knowing he'll be well out of it when it comes to pay it
Gordon takes a moment to lead another failed Pollitian into a broom cupboard
He braeks off talks to praise a retiring D.J. then can't remember what he was talking about and offers the BBC and Terry Wogan Â£2.5 billion per year in aid
Everyone gets back in theoir private jets and flys the long way home
Yet again the curse of Jonah McBrown rears its head.While he is away grandstanding at our expense and generally embarrasing himself as usual (Brown goes for a knee trembler in a broom cupboard),the country grinds to a halt under snow storms and freezing temperatures.
Good on China for kicking this scam into the long grass,for now.
Sir! Please sir please!! and erm.. could you please please send it in Euro's 'cause your money and our money aren't worth much now.
Well, one thing about Obama. He promised to end global warming and a blizzard hits the US East Coast the next day. Fast work Mr President. Now to sit here listening to the wind howling and hope my power stays on.
The key elements of the Copenhagen Accord, worked out among the United States, China, Brazil, India and South Africa, on Friday:
â¢ Nations agreed to cooperate in reducing emissions "with a view" to scientists' warnings to keep temperatures from rising more than 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees F) above preindustrial levels.
I have never understood how we can stop the temparature rise at a given figure. What do we do when it reaches 2.1 degrees...Turn everything off?`
â¢ Developing nations will report every two years on their voluntary actions to reduce emissions. Those reports would be subject to "international consultations and analysis," a concession to the United States by China, which had seen this as an intrusion on its sovereignty.
So Umbotoland reports every two years that it has killed 10,000 of it's citizens...thus reducing it's carbon footprint and offsetting the presidents lear jet!
Richer nations will finance a $10 billion-a-year, three-year program to pay for poorer nations' projects to deal with drought and other climate-change impacts, and to develop clean energy
â¢ They also set a "goal" of mobilizing $100 billion-a-year by 2020 for the same adaptation and mitigation purposes.
So while the developed countries continue to pollute the planet, they can feel better by taxing their citizens to the hilt in order to pay the developing countries billions of pounds for weapons, grand palaces and a space programme!
The whole thing was a complete waste of time and money, but it made a few poloticians feel warm and fuzzy for Christmas.
