    I’m shocked, SHOCKED that this conference appears to be meaningless!

    • Fat_Man

      It is not meaningless. A lot of Delegates have been able to eat 3 star cuisine on their expense accounts.

      • John WB

        Who are you kidding. 3 star cuisine doesn’t figure on the menu for these Parasites, far too downmarket.

        • Fat_Man

          I thought 3 was as high as the Micheline scale goes.

          • CapitalHawk

            You are correct. Michelin awards no stars, one, two or three stars. Three stars is as good as it gets.

            Both literally and figuratively (grin)….

    This conference has reached the inevitable stage of all such things…arguing over who gives money to whom. It is the only reason that three quarters of the countries at the conference are even participating.

    From here on out the base reason for the conference…climate change…will take a back seat and the money will be most of what they talk about. After all…the science is settled, right? Everything that can be said about climate change has been said over and over again and there is no point to say it again.

    Now, it is all money.

    I am getting bored. The globe can be getting warmer or colder, but the idea that the human contribution from burning carbon
    fuels has anything to do with it is not only IMHO the biggest political and intellectual fraud ever – but so says the IPCC itself:

    The ongoing discussion pro and con is becoming akin to the scholastic argument as to how many angels can dance on the head of
    a needle. Which is, of course, exactly what is intended to achieve worldwide disorientation away from the actual IPCC aims of global de-democratization and helotization through monetary and energy politics– and bringing a whole, if not all, of science into disrepute. Even the UK Royal Society has become Lysenkoist.

    David Archibald sums this up in these quotes from his TWILIGHT OF ABUNDANCE, [Regnery Publishing, Washington DC, 2014]:

    “Do we live in a special time in which the laws of physics and nature are suspended?

    — No, we do not.

    Can we expect the relationship between the Sun’s activity and climate, which we can see in data going back several hundred
    years, to continue for at least another twenty years?

    — With absolute certainty, we can.

    The Sun drives climate. The demonstrated relationship between solar activity and climate predicts a severe cooling out to at least the year 2040 – that is, for the next quarter of a century or so.

    Meanwhile, changes in the atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration will have a minuscule effect on climate. Increased atmospheric carbon dioxide is not even a little bit bad. It is, in fact, wholly beneficial. The more carbon dioxide we can put into the atmosphere, the better life on Earth will be for human beings and all other living things.

    If all that is true, you will ask, how is it that the United Nations-derived Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) came up with its icecap-melting prediction of a 6°C increase in average global temperature by the end of this century?” …

    “The UN-EU establishment that gave us the global warming scare in order to establish a new world order (after the fall of Communism) …. was necessary … to negate the triumph of liberal democracy that Francis Fukuyama predicted in 1992. As a belief system, global warming gave its adherents some of the basics in spiritual nourishment – original sin, the fall from grace, absolution, redemption, and sacrifice, to name a few…

    “It is one thing for the UN-EU bureaucrats to conspire against the productive elements of society. Nothing less is expected of them. Similarly, individual scientists selling their miserable souls for thirty pieces of silver is also completely understandable, and nothing
    new. What has been extremely disappointing is the learned societies, professional societies, and other scientific institutions accepting the global warming hoax without question, even though a moment’s consideration would have shown that the premise is laughable. Evidently global warming filled a sort of emptiness, a hollowness in many men’s souls. Perhaps if people come to see through this con job and understand the psychology behind their irrational belief, they will not be so gullible when the next one comes along.

    “Global warming did serve a couple of useful purposes. The issue has been a litmus test for our political class. Any politician who has stated a belief in global warming is either a cynical opportunist or an easily deluded fool. In neither case should that politician ever be taken seriously again. No excuses can be accepted.”

    Knowing that there is no escape from THE FOUR LAWS WITHOUT WHICH NOTHING WHATSOEVER IN THE UNIVERSE THAT HAPPENS, HAPPENS – and which cannot be overruled by edicts from whoever, be it Dalai Lama, Pope, Obama, Merkel, IMF,
    UN, EU, IPCC, PIK, the Supreme Court, EPA, or anyone, I suggest a look at some facts I collected on the subject in my IDIOT GUIDE TO GLOBAL WARMING at
