cancun failure

looks like the doomed cancun talks have now failed. kyoto is pretty much dead. So millions of dollars wasted all for nothing. There would have more decrease in carbon dioxide if all these "activists just stayed home.

The future of international climate diplomacy was put in jeopardy yesterday as the UN global warming conference at Cancún entered its final hours with no resolution to the divide between rich and poor countries. "We have very limited time to make a last push," warned Mexico's foreign minister, Patricia Espinosa. "No party can lose sight of what is at stake."

On what should have been the final hours of two weeks of negotiations, Connie Hedegaard, the EU's climate change commissioner, warned that the UN process was at risk of becoming a neverending set of meetings unless they reach a positive outcome at Cancún.

"Everyone must realise that if we don't get things done here in Cancún, it's very difficult to see how you go from A to B," she said. "If we leave Cancún without getting anything out of this, I think multilateralism has a problem."

To be quite honest even the so called environmentalists have given up. They know they lost.

Not until the final bell would I ever declare this rabble over. I was taken in and marched with the same type of clowns 50 years ago when earth day was started.
I direct everyone's attention to all the green crap at the civic level and by the way read how the Globe & Mail quotes the "Greenpiece and WWF crowd. No...they will never give up, their bread and butter depends on it.

“looks like the doomed Cancun talks have now failed”

They’ve failed only if you think this was about Global Warming or Climate change or whatever new name they put on their real mission….redistribution of other people’s money.

When the Berlin Wall fell many of us fell for the End of History according to Francis Fukuyama. It seemed obvious that democratic capitalism had clearly won the day. However fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me. These utopians have been around since Plato and will never go away. They simply change their garb and we need to constantly battle them.

Question to the environmentalists: elizabeth may,suzuki, sierra club and others.
How did any of you arrive at cancun without using oil to get there?

BTW Dr. Roy, since Elizabeth May and other canadians so call evironmentalist don't want to tell canadians which I find rather strange is that CANADA'S GAS EMISSION went from 34% increase during the Liberals thirteen years in government, down to 24% since the conservatives took office in 2006.
