Good News: Madrid Climate Meeting Is The Point Of No Return

I was wondering who would trot this kind of stuff out, because it seems like every year’s UN IPCC COP is the last one to Save The World from getting a fever

COP25 really is the ‘point of no return’ in the climate emergency. Here’s why

BTW, once you throw “here’s why” into the headline, you’ve gone all Vox and this is no longer news, it’s activism

It’s a summit that could make or break the world’s climate commitments.

Would those be the commitments that most nations have failed to even get close to?

Around 25,000 people from 200 countries are descending on Madrid this week to attend the COP25 climate change conference. They include dozens of heads of state and government, business leaders, scientists and, of course, activists — including Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg.

So, around 25,000 will take fossil fueled travel? Huh.

That will require most countries to up their commitments ahead of the next COP meeting in Glasgow next November. According to the UN, if we rely only on the current climate plans, temperatures can be expected to rise by 3.2 degrees this century.

Yet, most nations aren’t even close to achieving their much lower commitments, so, good luck!

That sounds scary. Can we do anything to stop this?

Only to an unhinged climate cultist is that scary

Experts say that if the delegates reach a deal on emissions trading, we might just about be able to reach the targets. If they fail, we will definitely trail behind the plan.

That doesn’t mean all is lost — but it does make dealing with the consequences of climate change even more expensive. The later we wait, the more drastic (and pricey) measures will be needed to save the planet.

Basically, this is a redistribution scheme, where 3rd world shitholes, er, developing nations (that never develop) can trade their lack of greenhouse gas emissions to nations that are productive. For cash.

Anyhow, I’m sure there will be plenty of articles about Doom if they don’t Do Something.

  1. They upped the damage to 3.2 degrees because no one could get excited about 1 degree per hundred years.

    So, if it’s really the Point of No Return, all that we need to do is re-elect President Trump, and all of this silly bovine feces will go away?

    Are there any countries that agree with you in that global warming is not a “bad thing”?

    • Professor Hale says:

      John,
      A country is not a person. It can neither agree nor disagree with anyone or anything. In most of the world, the vast majority of the population of every country simply doesn’t care about this “issue”. And if you look at their actions instead of their words, not a single person on the planet really agrees that Global Warming (TM) is a bad thing.

        Except for greedy, envious, jealous losers who want things and wealth taken away from the successful and the hard workers and given to them for their “crime” against “The Climate” (i.e. themselves).

        They are the over-educated under-achievers who, discovered that a tenured “gender studies” position in a university is way more scarce than their Profs made it out to be and their “Gender Studies” degree isn’t worth the paper it’s printed on in the private sector.

        The rest are the idiots who were lazy, barely getting by people who have lived beyond their means and they’ve realized that someone, somewhere has more stuff or money than they do and, “IT’S NOT FAIR!!”
