Pacific Leaders Say Paris Climate Talks Are Totally Their Last Chance

Their last chance to get lots and lots of sweet, sweet cash

(AFP) Pacific leaders said Monday that upcoming climate talks in Paris are the last chance for the world to reach an agreement that can save their vulnerable island nations.

The leaders of the six smallest members of the Pacific Islands Forum (PIF) said they were among the hardest hit by climate change, and a binding agreement at the so-called COP21 talks in December was crucial.

Because high tide and storm surge never happened before CO2 went over the “safe” limit of 350ppm.

Territories such as Tuvalu and Tokelau fear their nations will become unlivable as rising waters erode coastlines and ruin crops, while Kiribati has purchased a large block of land in Fiji in case its entire population needs to relocate.

Except, the seas are barely rising in those areas, and there’s nothing new about sea rise during a Holocene warm period. What is this really about? Money. These island nations want lots and lots of money. Interestingly, this is what’s embedded in the photo stream for the article

It seems rather serendipitous that the big ad of the day at Yahoo News is Citi bank pimping credit cards, which shows up in the article photo stream.

Maybe these islands should be more worried about their poo infested waters. And should wonder how coral based islands came into creation in the first place.

    Yep. No one knows Pacific Islands like a conservablogger from NC.

    How many “last chances” have we heard out of this scam over the years? Yes, it’s their last chance of money redistribution from “rich” countries. Until the next last chance.

    Those islands started wearing away the day the volcanoes died. They wear down until they’re just the coral atoll, then disappear beneath the ceaseless waves.

    Get used to the idea, is my advice.

    While the nutty Republicans and their minions deny that 1) the Earth is warming, 2) that it’s from greenhouse gases and 3) we can do anything about it; a funny thing has happened. The US and Europe reduced their greenhouse gas emissions, replacing coal fired energy with natural gas and renewable sources. China is following suit. Developing nations will be able to bypass coal generated electricity and move directly to renewables.
