What’s The Biggest Sticking Point For Paris Climate Talks?

What could it be? Asking Warmists to reduce their own carbon footprints? Spreading more awareness?

The biggest sticking point in Paris climate talks: money


Another critical policy issue that is at the center of the Paris agenda is an age-old one: money. Going into the negotiations, there is a goal to scale up existing efforts toward providing US$100 billion a year to support climate change action primarily in developing countries by 2020. Ideally, these efforts should also contribute to long-term sustainable development.

Many Paris financing debates will focus on how to most appropriately use the recently created Green Climate Fund (GCF) – the new main multilateral vehicle for helping developing countries to lower their GHG emissions and adapt to the effects of climate change.

It’s almost like this has nothing to do with science.

    The GCF has received a first set of 37 funding proposals for major projects valued at $1.5 billion from public and private sector entities. Requests included proposals in the areas of water access, disaster preparedeness, land-use management, energy efficiency and small-scale renewables.

    The bulk of the funding proposals were requests for grants, rather than loans.

    With the lion’s share of carbon emissions coming from developed countries (eg China, US, EU, India, Russia, Japan, etc), why does giving money to 3rd world countries that account for maybe 1% of global emissions do anything to prevent climate change?

    I’m just asking!
