Cancun Conference - It is Worse than We Thought!

In the absence of any real agreement of ways to limit "CO2 temperature rise" to 2 degrees C the meeting of the brains in Cancun have decided "it is worse than we thought " and we should adopt a more stringent approach and propose a target of 1.5 deg C which would need more draconian action, agreement to which will also not be forthcoming.



 WORLD leaders should boost the target set at Copenhagen and limit global temperature rises to 1.5C, not 2C, from pre-industrial levels.
This is according to a draft agreement from the UN climate change conference in Cancun.
The draft agreement was released on the eve of the second week at Cancun as Britain's leading climate science institutions rejected doomsday warnings but found that some risks posed by global warming were greater than had been stated. The study said claims about the slowing down of the Gulf Stream, with potentially catastrophic consequences, had been exaggerated, but that the North Pole could be ice-free as early as 2060 -- two decades earlier than predicted in the latest statement by the Intergovernmental panel on climate change.
Meanwhile Australia's Greg Combet is playing Santa with taxpayer's hard-earned so Chavez and his gaggle of mates in the UN with their "democratic" dictatorships can have a nice Christmas too! 
CLIMATE Change Minister Greg Combet is in talks to set up a fund to help developing nations cope with the impact of greenhouse gases.
Mr Combet started work at the UN conference on climate change in Cancun yesterday as Australia's co-chairman, with Bangladesh, of a new committee investigating ways to provide finance.
