Posted on 12/09/2018 4:54:10 AM PST by Oldeconomybuyer
Attempts to incorporate a key scientific study into global climate talks in Poland have failed.
The IPCC report on the impacts of a temperature rise of 1.5C, had a significant impact when it was launched last October.
Scientists and many delegates in Poland were shocked as the US, Saudi Arabia, Russia and Kuwait objected to this meeting "welcoming" the report.
Instead they wanted to support a much more lukewarm phrase, that the conference would "take note" of the report.
The dispute dragged on as huddles of negotiators met in corners of the plenary session here, trying to agree a compromise wording.
None was forthcoming.
With no consensus, under UN rules the passage of text had to be dropped. Many countries expressed frustration and disappointment at the outcome.
The report, launched in Incheon in South Korea, had an immediate impact winning praise from politicians all over the world.

“trying to agree a compromise wording”
Climate science is hardly more of a science than is political science or social science. Climate science does not use the scientific method, which requires falsifiability. Climate science uses theory to interpret data rather than let data verify theory.
rofl, fun to see the globull propagandists run into a road block.....
“COP24 fails to adopt key science fiction report!” There, fixed it.
The report itself showed that the existing “sky is falling” climate change models were FALSE. If adopted it would’ve meant that all of the currently adopted “science” was incorrect and based on false modeling.
The climate change believers wanted this adopted purely for political reasons and not because they’re looking for an actual solution.
Thy don”t want a “solution”...That would stop their gravy train....
You have to read all the way to the bottom of the article before it mentions that all the ministers have not arrived.
Literally LOL. Climate change and "scientific" in the same sentence. If, and that's a mighty big if, there has been any real science done in the field of climate research in the last quarter century it has been thoroughly drown-out by all the would-be fascists seeking to use "climate change" to gain power and control.

There ya go. And the horse you rode in on, demagogues.
As log as so many nations grant “official” status to an orthodoxy of views and that orthodoxy alone, no “international” report, mimicking those self-proclaimed national orthodoxies, deserves the respect it seeks.
