|COP21 - Political Fantasy Island04-12-2015 17:52|
|Apparently COP21 is like a political "Fantasy Island" in which politicians and political interest groups can pretend they are gods and can deliberate the fate of nature and of the planet.|
I found this item to be particularly intriguing:
Nicholson was informed that Caribbean negotiators are insisting that global warming be limited to 1.5 degrees Celsius by the end of this century – that's less than the 2 degrees Celsius for which developed countries have been advocating. - The Gleaner, COP21: Caribbean countries standing firm on global warming limit
This is accompanied by the expectation that this 1.5 degree limit be signed into some sort of international law which will be executed by the gods presiding at COP21.
Along those same lines, I found this item to be similarly intriguing:
In 2015 COP21, also known as the 2015 Paris Climate Conference, will, for the first time in over 20 years of UN negotiations, aim to achieve a legally binding and universal agreement on climate, with the aim of keeping global warming below 2°C. - The Gleaner, COP21: Caribbean countries standing firm on global warming limit
As solar output continues to decrease towards the solar minimum, and thus as the earth continues to cool, is all the warmizombie insistence that the earth is actually warming toward oblivion intended to ultimately credit the climate gods they sent to COP21 as having performed the miracles necessary to save the planet?
Question: What sort of fine/sentence can be levied against "climate" if it warms more than the 2-degree legal limit?
Sea level varies from place to place in the world - keepit
Clouds don't trap heat. Clouds block cold. - Spongy Iris
Printing dollars to pay debt doesn't increase the number of dollars. - keepit
If Venus were a black body it would have a much much lower temperature than what we found there.- tmiddles
Ah the "Valid Data" myth of ITN/IBD. - tmiddles
Ceist - I couldn't agree with you more. But when money and religion are involved, and there are people who value them above all else, then the lies begin. - trafn
You are completely misunderstanding their use of the word "accumulation"! - Climate Scientist.
The Stefan-Boltzman equation doesn't come up with the correct temperature if greenhouse gases are not considered - Hank
:*sigh* Not the "raw data" crap. - Leafsdude
IB STILL hasn't explained what Planck's Law means. Just more hand waving that it applies to everything and more asserting that the greenhouse effect 'violates' it.- Ceist

It comes down to a simpler question. What do you do about dissidents?

|This is ridiculous. Read this latest development out of COP21:|
We can already guarantee that this "accord" will never amount to anything but we can guess as to how long it will be before the political strategy will transition to making the entire topic just "go away" and be forgotten.
Also, notice how CO2 is equated with pollution. The accord never had a chance.
