Record low temperatures at the global warming summit in Cancun, the midwest is getting buried in snow, the roof of the Metrodome has been brought down by tons of global warming, and Europe is seeing its heaviest snows and coldest temperatures in some time (but that’s the fault of global warming too).
The Advisory Group was formed to identify ways to meet the Copenhagen Accord pledge that developed countries will provide $100 billion of climate financing to developing countries each year, beginning in 2020. The Group officially delivered their report to the Secretary-General in November.
In talking about why the group’s work is valuble, the Secretary-General stated, “Financing for climate change is not about charity. Ultimately, climate financing is an investment in a safer and more sustainable world.” That set the tone for the rest of the meeting, which described climate finance as a serious financial undertaking.
“Climate finance as a serious financial undertaking.” No argument here.
As if things weren’t bad enough, they’re now telling us that melting glaciers cause cancer (glacier huggers hardest hit). Perhaps some warning labels are in order — which will no doubt cost a couple billion each. A suggested label: Warning: The mere threat of melting this product has been known to cause swelling in Al Gore’s bank account
