States imperilled by warming rebel at climate talks
By Nina Chestney and Jon Herskovitz

The U.N. negotiators regrouped in 2010 in Cancun, where a more modest programme of action and a set of voluntary pledges to curb carbon emissions were drawn up.
Scientists say those promises are not yet enough to limit global warming to the two degrees Celsius judged necessary to stave off the most devastating effects of climate change.
U.N. reports released in the last month show time is running out. A warming planet has already intensified droughts and floods, increased crop failures and sea levels could rise to levels that would submerge several small island nations.
The protracted talks frustrated delegates from small islands and African states, who joined a protest by green groups outside as they tried to enter the main negotiating room.
"You need to save us, the islands can't sink. We have a right to live, you can't decide our destiny. We will have to be saved," Maldives climate negotiator Mohamed Aslam said.

Uh, oh. There's another goofball running around out there.
If these folks believe this, then they should start building dykes and windmills like Holland.
Whether the planets warms or cools is just a natural event and has nothing to do with what humans do.
All this green house crap is just that, crap. It is stuff made up by ignorant people so they have something to blame.
Climate change just happens. The causes are diverse but have nothing to do with man. Man cannot control sun spots, shifting of the Earth’s magnetic poles, solar flares or anthing else that actually contains sufficient energy to have an impact on the climate.
And as for CO2 emissions, they are caused by warming; they do not cause warming.
They forget the dust bowl. they forget devastating Hurricanes, they forget tornado’s of the past.
WE have had bad weather before and will have it again. If there is Global Warming there is nothing we can do about it.We didn’t cause it and we cannot stop it.
It's FUN to lie!
LOL! They know how to shovel it but they can’t build a dyke.
See? It’s not about the welfare of our descendants or our current safety from the “effects” of GW. It’s about redistributing wealth from rich countries to crapholes. The only way to pull it off is to make it appear man-made.
Don’t you just love how these guys hold their conferences at beach resorts?
2010 - Cancun
2011 - Durban
Oh, how ‘bout someone googleup and post some pics of what these pigs are eating?
They fancy themselves our overlords, while shrimp sauce drips offa their fat chins.
Emitting methane in their general direction...
I thought there was a “Warming Rebel” person around threatening people...:^)
UN phony baloney is nothing more than an excuse for the idiots of the world to send a bill for their foolishness to the US taxpayer.
No, Jack, it is much more nefarious than that. It is made up by Marxists as a way to obtain more government control over the lives of us all. Just as the Marxists gained control over the UN by insisting that all the small nations of the world, especially those that comprised the USSR, be members, they designed these global accords to force the US and Europe to pay tribute to the "under developed nations." That buys the allegiance of those small nations. Ironically, those "under developed nations" include Russia and China.
AGW is a designed plot to control industry through environmental regulations. Basically, it makes prosperity more expensive and more difficult for the USA and Europe and easier for the others.
National Healthcare is another leg of the stool as it allows the government to regulate everything that is personal for people. That means they can tell us what to eat, how much to exercise, whether or not to drink or smoke, etc., else we will lose our healthcare.
It is all about the Marxist elites controlling the rest of us and you are right, it is all a lie.
