A Typical UN/Obama Result in Copenhagen.

Sphere: Related Content

Obama jetted over to Copenhagen to save not only the world but the greatest global warming conference ever attended by UN shills, despots and thugs. It was a big deal. No really. John Kerry said so and everything. So what did they accomplish besides spewing massive amounts of carbon--the evil stuff we exhale every second--into the air?

They accomplished absolutely nothing. When even the far-left British rag The Guardian can't spin it (buit the administration and MSM can), you know it was an epic failure:

Like businessmen who insist a deal is legit, politicians protesting they have done something "meaningful" arouse suspicions that the opposite is in fact true. And "meaningful" was about the best word the spin doctors could muster in respect of the agreement of sorts that was brokered in Copenhagen late last night.

The climate change summit had three big tickets on its agenda: emissions, financial assistance and the process going ahead. And on each of these counts the accord – which was effectively hammered out not by the whole conference, but rather by the US, India, China and South Africa – fell woefully short. There was no serious cementing of the positive noises on aid that had emerged earlier on in the week. On emissions, a clear-eyed vision for the distant future was rendered a pipe dream by outright fuzziness about the near term. And most alarmingly of all, there was no clear procedural roadmap to deliver the world from the impasse that this summit has landed it in. Outright failure to agree anything at all would have been very much worse, but that is about the best thing that can be said.

...Only two years ago, the world's leaders swore this would be the summit to build a new carbon order. The threadbare agreement thrashed out last night has not even laid the foundations. The progress on financial assistance over the fortnight is welcome, but with much of the money earmarked for climate adaptation, the global community is left resembling an alcoholic who has decided to save up for a liver transplant rather than give up drink..

Although no one who supported the conference will ever admit it; the leaked e-mails that collectively became Climategate (thank you Russia) destroyed the conference before the diplomats descended on the Danish city. Scepticism has grown over the years and the perfect storm of "hide the decline", arrogance of the global warming community and recessionary pressures merged to create what can only be described as the biggest UN failure since...well, whatever they last tried to accomplish.

For the record; South Jersey is expected to get 12-20 inches of global warming today with 3 already on the ground. The only takeaway I get from the Copenhagen circle jerk is that Pelosi and Obama had leave early because of this storm that is the biggest to hit the region in years. All one can say is thank the good Lord that the UN and Obama adminstration contains people so inept that they couldn't come to any real agreement so it looks like environmental and economic idiocy was narrowly averted.

Update: Mark Steyn has the last word on the joke that was Copenhagen.

Copenhagen has failed. The UN has failed to address the most important crisis in human history. This is now the time for sanctions, boycotts and embargoes. A new alliance is needed. An alliance of hope and peace and justice must be built to oppose the axis of pollution, extinction and self destruction.

Canada Guy, Al Gore just said we need too take advantage of geothermal energy (using the heat from in the earth too heat our homes) this is being done right now as I have a friend who has geothermal heat for the last 10 years. Gore said the earths core is many millions of degrees. The sun's surface is only 6000 degrees which means we would be sitting on a molten planet. Gore lies and the gullible American people believe him. At the beginning of the Iraq War the UN offices in Baghdad were attacked by Iraqi terrorists and the head of the mission was killed. The UN pulled out of Iraq never too return again(do you trust them?)they are cowards. The UN asked 8 thousand African troops from countries around Darfur too protect the people from genicide. These troops have done nothing but sit and watch this travesty take place. The UN is the most impotent organ in the world.
