Obama, EU to stand together on climate change draft
Reuters ^ | Thu Mar 13, 2014 3:08pm EDT | Barbara Lewis

U.S. President Barack Obama and EU leaders meeting in Brussels this month will throw their combined weight behind tackling climate change, a document seen by Reuters says, in a show of developed world solidarity on the need for a new global deal.

But the guarded, diplomatic language is likely to disappoint environmentalists calling for urgent, ambitious pledges to cut greenhouse gas emissions.

“Sustainable economic growth will only be possible if we tackle climate change,” a draft communique ahead of the EU-US summit on March 26 says. The text is subject to further negotiation between the European Union and the United States.

“Change the climate by invading Russia.”

That should make it a bit windier and warmer. Three thousand degrees, or so. Do they make SPF 40,000?

I have a mental picture of Zero and the EU enviropuppets dressed in Mayan garb, standing high on a mountaintop ordering the skies to stop snowing - now. They might as well order the Sun not to traverse its celestial plane for all the effect spending billions and billions on a non-problem will accomplish.

liars creating lies and then acting like they believe their own lies. being pissed the rest of us won’t give them the courtesy of believing their lies.

and read the draft sentence as it really is, them being liars:

we can’t continue to destroy economic growth and thereby wipe out the middle class unless we get severely punitive global warming laws passed.

"Sustainable economic growth will only be possible if we tackle climate change"

Huh. Now that's a pretty wild statement.

The climate change priests are banding with the economists. Nary a hard science to be found in that neighborhood.

That’s been going on for a while. Ever since we had the much-abused phrase “climate change” hurled at us by the UN, they’ve always coupled it with “sustainability” in terms of economic development.

Hasn’t it been about 17 years since any climate change has been registered according to our own governments info? and what is the excuse Obama offers for giving up control of the internet?

Climate change has been happening on Earth for 4 billion years. Because some bureaucrats sign a paper, it’s not going to change. All that will happen is money that could be spent preparing for climate change and saving lives will be wasted trying to prevent the change that’s going to occur.
