#COP21 The morning after the night before

Polar bear

Nearly 200 countries have [signed up] to the most expensive agreement in history amid a party atmosphere in Paris, now comes the hangover.

After two weeks of intense negotiations, by thousands of delegates from around the world,  on Saturday evening an agreement was reached. Bjorn Lomborg (Director of the Copenhagen Consensus think tank) describes it as “The costliest treaty in history, solves almost nothing.”

The majority of NGOs are cockahoop  of course, as they are the only big winners. Their campaigns are now turbocharged by this document. Expect a protest at a petrol station near you. The ideologues are beside themselves.

Christians Figueres: “This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the industrial revolution.”

However the likes of George Monbiot and James Hansen have pooh poohed the conference. They do have a point, an agreement that is voluntary in the sections that matter and binding in the areas that don’t  could be considered meaningless. One of the hold ups towards the end, was America’s insistence that a [shall] must be a [should], the former enforceable, the latter not.

The U.K. PrimeMinister wrote “..means that the whole world has signed to play its part in halting climate change.” @don_don666 pointed out the stupidity of the statement ” Hope it’s not raining the day the climate stops changing.”I won’t bother with President Obama’s reaction.

Christopher Booker gives his reaction in the Telegraph. The Stream declares Saturday as  The day science died. The prize for best take down goes to Tyler Durden for Zerohedge.com.

Twitter, as always, has supplied one or two quotes and observations.

If your interested, here is the text. Enjoy.

    Hopefully we won’t have to wait till solar cycle 25 arrives to get some cooling to take the wind out their sails.

    They should declare victory over AGW and go home as the “fever” broke 20 years ago. Not likely as that would be the end of these massive all expense paid parties all over the world. What would the worlds ELITE do next!..pg

    Who has been fooling who in Paris?

    ‘Overall what came out of Paris was the diplomatic equivalent of a New Year’s resolution to go on a strict weight loss regime involving no more than six chocolate eclairs between meals.’

    The only good Markó sees from COP21 is: “it is over and we finally can return to the realities.”
