Leaders, Activists Throwing in the Towel in Copenhagen
FoxNews.com ^

Posted on 12/18/2009 12:05:11 PM PST by DadOfFive

COPENHAGEN — Has Copenhagen collapsed?

That seems to be the growing sentiment inside the city's Bella Conference Center, where officials, environmentalists and even delegates to the international climate conference began streaming out Friday evening. What began with excitement and anticipation two weeks ago ended Friday night with disappointment and anger for thousands.

"This is a sad day for my country," said Mama Konate, chief delegate from the West African nation of Mali. "We have worked very hard to reach this agreement. And now it seems over. Without a deadline, I don't know if we will ever finish."

The conference, the largest of its kind, attracted scientists, activists and human rights supporters from every corner of the globe, who believe that without a climate accord limiting greenhouse gases, glaciers will melt, oceans will rise and the weather will go so warm it could wipe out 50 percent of the Earth's species. Until Friday, they saw Copenhagen as their last chance to stop it.

"You can scapegoat the process. That wasn't it. It was the unwillingness of people to move around big issues: China on verification, the U.S. on deeper emission cuts," said the head of an NGO that does relief work in Africa.

At least the state-run media isn't blaming Copehagen's collapse on Bush!

Climategate may have been buried by the MSM, but its impact is being felt. The scam is being unraveled.

All these elites get to jet off for two weeks to talk, network, stay in nice hotels, get paid by American taxpayers (even UN delegates from foreign countries), have sex with prostitutes, eat the best food for free - everything is free, and redo their commie oaths. Nice work if you can get it.

What? You mean a little thing like fraud, destroying RAW data, forging new data, ignoring substancial data points that do not support your theory - is somehow ‘bad science’?

Leave it to an idiot like Obama to be the last Rat to leave a ship that not only hit an icebert, but then got torpedoed, has a plague, has been set afire and is already completely submerged.

This was the best the Democrats had to offer? His only qualification for the office of POTUS is, has been and forever will be that he is half-black. And even at that level of qualification, is woefully inadequate among his peers.

You worked very hard at producing nothing and asking for everything, Mama. But at least you got a nice vacation out of it. Maybe you should have a snowball fight with a rival tribe or something before you head home.

Sniveling, polar ice cap prostitutes, posing as Greenware, when all they really want is America’s wealth and for us to drop to our knees and hand it over.
Anti-capitalist, lying busterds can crawl back to their palaces and huts and start planning for their next enviro-global BS/hot-air session.
Other than that-—its a great day!

His reason for promoting this farce was exactly the same as his reason for wanting the Olympics in Chicago.

Money to be made for his cronies.

We can only pray for a republican takeover of congress and the senate in 2010 or this country is DOOMED.

There is no doubt that we cannot afford another congressional session with these evil people in charge.

This will be reported by the media as a rousing success for Mr. Obama. He will be shown as working very hard to achieve an agreement.

Dmitry Medvedev has left the building




Friday December 18, 2009 04:37:18 PM GMT
by Denis Dyomkin, Reuters News

COPENHAGEN, Dec 18 (Reuters) - Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has left United Nations climate talks to fly back to Moscow, a Kremlin spokesman said on Friday.

Medvedev is one of the first world leaders to leave the summit aimed at breaking deadlock in talks to secure a deal to cut greenhouse gas emissions and provide financing for poor countries to help them combat climate change.

If what I’ve heard of Mali (and Africa as whole) is true, they have a lot more important things to worry about than global warming.
