    ” …but those officials are heading back to their respective countries with nothing to show for their efforts.”

    Au contraire. Think of all the good meals and cocktail hours these so-called representatives had with nary a dime coming out of their own pockets. And please, don’t think for a moment that this isn’t a great motivating force for these shallow, but pompous, people

      You forgot all the CO2 emitted to transport these parasites to and from their meaningless climate conferences. How about a ban on climate-related travel?

      • WP.

        I’d like to know just how much CO2 resulted from the flatulence created directly by meals consumed at the conference. I’m sure it would out weigh any benefits, based on the info in the article.

          Flatulence would generate Methane, not CO2

          • Andrew Allison

            Methane is a much more potent greenhouse gas than CO2.

          • f1b0nacc1

            Precisely! This parasites (and your use of the term is extraordinarily appropriate here) do worse than merely emit CO2, they emit Methane, which is a far more intense greenhouse gas…
            Ever see the old British series ‘Bottom’?

    The UN Secretary-General is already dismissing the Lima talks. Instead, he’s focusing on the 2015 Paris talks. After all, where would you rather be, Lima or Paris? I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that the Paris talks will be well attended by ministers and their minions. I don’t think any country will miss this one. Look for a surprise appearance by either Obama or Kerry (assuming both are performing the duties of their respective offices in November 2015). The bloviating will be a wonder to watch.

      I think you’re spot on about Obama. He’ll want to brag about all the illegal executive orders he’s issued to entrench climate change BS in mandatory governmental policy.

    If the expected 2014 El Nino burps out some of that heat stored in our oceans we will likely see more folks understand where we are headed. The cynicism of the article is appropriate since each country has disparate conditions and must solve them individually.
    It’s nice the article ended with this: “To that end, parallel talks held at a summit in Mexico City, predicated on countries sharing best practices regarding adapting to and mitigating climate change at the national level, “

      “If the expected 2014 El Nino burps out some of that heat stored in our oceans we will likely see more folks understand where we are headed.”

      Never count on changing the mind of one whose livelihood (real or psychic) depends on never agreeing with you.

      • keith

        Oh I realize that is futile in trying to change entrenched minds. The real audience is others on the margins that are trying to learn about the topic or are being swayed.

  • Corlyss

    May it ever be thus.

    It should fail, as it is all just a big boondoggle based on the lie of “Global Warming”.
