The sky is falling and nations open an umbrella

If The New York Times says it, it must be true:

“An analysis by researchers at Climate Interactive, a group whose calculations are used by American negotiators and by numerous other governments, is expected to be released Monday and was provided in advance to The New York Times. It shows that the collective pledges would reduce the warming of the planet at century’s end to about 6.3 degrees, if the national commitments are fully honored, from an expected 8.1 degrees Fahrenheit, if emissions continue on their present course. …

“At a meeting in Cancun, Mexico, in 2010, climate negotiators from nearly 200 countries agreed that they would try to limit the warming to 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit, or 2 degrees Celsius, above the preindustrial temperature, a level that would require that emissions from fossil fuels largely cease within a few decades.” (Emphasis added.)

This is what it is really all about:

“Poor countries that have had little to do with causing global warming, but are likely to suffer the worst effects, are demanding billions from rich countries to help them manage.”

    Of course! It’s the doing of those evil poor countries that have developed an agenda to take over the world through global warming propaganda. Thanks for the warning Thomas. So does this mean the whole global warming thing thing is a massive conspiracy?

  2. Steve says:

    The “rich” are responsible for ALL the worlds ills….they must be FLEECED!

  3. Winston Smith says:

    Except certain rich who are pushing the AGW bullshit, including Blood and Gore…

  4. Vernon Clayson says:

    If only humankind could control the rotation and tilt of the earth in its relation to the sun and moon. Perhaps the geniuses in this BS issue will figure that out, maybe millions of fat Al Gores placed advantageously but no one should hold their breath waiting for that.

  5. Rincon says:

    “The “rich” are responsible for ALL the worlds ills….they must be FLEECED!” Might as well. The middle class has already been fleeced by the rich. It’s time for payback. Turnabout is fair play.

  6. Patrick says:

    Both the poor and “the middle class” (what’s left) have and are being fleeced by the wealthy; that’s what capitalism is all about after all so, as bush would say:

    “Mission Accomplished”

  7. Steve says:

    I say start with Buffet, Gore, Soros, Steyer, Bloomberg, Simons, Stryker, Benioff, Parker, Bass, Ballmer (yes THAT Ballmer) and then we get the Koch bros!

    Put your billionaires where your mouths are!

  8. Rincon says:

    OK by me, as long as we fleece all of ’em, which includes anyone with a net worth greater than mine 🙂

  9. Steve says:

    That was unnecessary and a picture I will need to forever eradicate from my memory Brien!

  10. Winston Smith says:

    You’re right patrick, what this nation needs is a way to “soak the rich” so that those bastards pay for most of the government’s expenses. And the richer they are, the MORE they should pay!

  11. Patrick says:

    Winston, what we Really Need are more bumper sticker slogans promulgated by the wealthy to convince us bottom feeders that the rich are being taken advantage of.

    “Mission Accomplished”
