Surprise: COP26 Second Draft Failing To Resolve Disputes

Why does this seem to happen every year? It always seems to go long as people who took long fossil fueled trips try and hammer out the details of forcing Other People to comply with the measures the Elites themselves won’t, meaning they get to hang out in nice locations for longer on the taxpayer dime

Take 2: Second draft of Glasgow climate change agreement fails to resolve ongoing disputes

Just hours before the United Nations Climate Change Conference was set to wrap up, a new draft report of the final agreement was released showing that key differences remain on how to keep global temperatures from rising more than 1.5 degrees Celsius above preindustrial levels.

Negotiators worked through the night Thursday to try to close the gaps among nations on vexing questions such as how much money richer nations should pay for the damages that climate change has already caused in poorer countries, as well as what specific emissions targets are necessary and when they should be implemented.

“Most glaring is the lack of any mention of the finance plan for loss and damage that was proposed last night by the G77 group of developing countries,” Tracy Carty, head of Oxfam’s COP26 delegation, said of the second draft in a statement. “‘Acknowledging’ loss and damage will not bring back the submerged homes, poisoned fields and lost loved ones. Rich countries must stop blocking progress and commit to doing something about it.”

It’s pretty easy to offer up Other People’s money to give away, money that is forcibly taken from those citizens. It’s also very easy to demand that Other People in developed nations pony up money by taking it from the citizens of developed nations, eh?

Pledges made in Paris in 2015 for wealthy countries to mobilize $100 billion per year in grants and loans to the developing world have not yet been fully met, which the draft document states it “notes with deep regret.” New wording added in the second draft calling for rich countries to double such funding by 2025 could prove a stumbling block to a final agreement because rich countries may balk.

Climate activists, meanwhile, say that even the current wording lets the industrialized world, which has emitted far more greenhouse gases that have caused climate change, off the hook on financing for developing countries and eliminating their own use of fossil fuels.

Yet, the people demanding this aren’t giving up their own use of fossil fuels. Go figure.

“As the minutes tick down, accepting responsibility and how to ramp up climate finance should be the theme of negotiations,” Rachel Kennerley, international climate campaigner at Friends of the Earth, said in a statement. “But instead, it looks like rich countries are preparing their escape hatch. This new draft released this morning speaks about removing inefficient fossil fuels subsidies, as if efficient ones are acceptable.” (snip)

Underscoring the differences between the parties, however, is the ongoing debate about whether to include the words “fossil fuels” in the draft.

At the end of the day, possibly by Monday (which gives these climate cultists a nice weekend in Glasgow), they’ll suddenly announce a breakthrough, that the final draft is Historic!!!!!!!, and then outlets will start releasing how much this is going to cost the people in the developed world, how much it will increase their cost of energy and cost of living, and then the fun begins, especially when Surrender Joe announces his agreement.

    Exactly. These international meetings are always 3 wolves and a sheep voting on what is for dinner. Everyone in the international community expects the USA to pick up the tab. ALWAYS.

    That was what Kyoto was all about and the last Paris “treaty-ish” agreement. So naturally, when the USA didn’t come in with the big check book, the agreements collapsed as meaningless ink on paper always does. The only thing they have to discuss is how much the USA should pay everyone else.

    Too bad they can’t all discuss what actions they are all going to take in their own countries, on their own dime.

    It’s always good when they can stretch out stays with their mistresses! Leave the wife at home, enjoy time with the sweet young thing you brought along, and maybe forget the fact that your wife at home just might have Raoul the Pool Boy taking care of more than the pool’s plumbing.

    Why should we be on the hook for developing countries?

    The dirty little secret is that President Trump was the most honest of these guys: he stated, openly and honestly, that the United States wasn’t going to go along with that bovine feces, and withdrew from the Paris deal.

    All of those good countries which tut-tutted the US withdrawal, saying how bad we were? They stayed in the deal, but they never met their own obligations!
