Penny Wong and the Climate in Copenhagen

Posted on: December 12, 2009

“Senator Wong said the big problems in the talks were the targets to cut greenhouse gas emissions, how to verify that countries made good on their climate promises, and how to finance poorer countries to tackle global warming. (Well, we all knew that Penny Wong.) Ms Hand though, Australia’s Official Person, in her speech, also drew attention to the problem in deciding what legal form a new climate deal should take – a hot topic which relates to the future of the Kyoto protocol.”

Well, nice try…to get Nations together again after Geneva and the war to end all wars in 1918, then the U.N.after another war to end all wars in 1945 but history has clearly shown that there is no such thing as obtuse Nations doing anything together for the common good least of all in good faith. More so when rising populations with rising affluence become consumers of manufactured goods from polluting processes. The U.N. says another 2.9 billion by 2040, an increase of one third, Penny Wong, one third. Therein lies the problem of trying to create a new World Order.

If the causes of climate change, are indeed man made, then the answer is unclear and requires the sacrifice of vested interests. Legislating an Emissions Trading Scheme is Australia’s example, but if it is the forever changing elliptical orbit of the Earth around the Sun then the answer is clear..adapt to it as all other life on Earth has adapted to climate change. But the melting of the Ice Caps raising the sea levels before they begin to freeze again create a problem for some of the Pacific Nations…this is the area to prepare for a different future on higher ground….. in rented space?. In the meantime it appears that Copenhagen is all about money.
