the Paris-ites claim victory …

They achieved enough cash to to expand the UN bureaucracy, but not much else. What a farce, and a complete waste of time and money. You see, the ‘science’ they use is nonsense. They are obviously blind and Maths challenged, says one wag on Jonova.

That’s just the tip of the iceberg, so to speak. Even the warmist idol, James Hansen thinks it’s a failure, but for the wrong reasons. Former NASA lead ‘global warming’ scientist James Hansen on UN summit: ‘It’s a fraud really, a fake. It’s just bullshit’

Now, that’s too funny, especially when you read the Climategate emails.

They’re real and they’re spectacular!  with a hat tip to Jerry Seinfeld. The relevance of that headline is particularly interesting in the context of where Dr. James Hansen of the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) has his office in NYC.

The agreement, as expected does nothing for the environment, nothing to climate change or global warming, and nothing for the populations of the poorest countries. But it makes the Paris-ites feel good about themselves.

Jim Hoft is even more scathing:

Paris Junk Science Pact Calls for US to Redistribute Wealth to Banana Republics and 3rd World Hell Holes

Dec 12th, 2015 2:14 pm by

It’s a liberal’s wet dream… Global elites released details of their global warming junk science pact Saturday. The international agreement […]

Hehe, Rick Moran writes, calling it “a load of ‘hornswaggle'”:

[…] is an exercise in narcissistic self congratulations. Each leader will be able to go home, point to something or other in the document, and proclaim that they have saved the planet.

DSC00513So, in conclusion, what was it all about? Nothing:b4345-6a010536b58035970c01b7c7f4b97f970b-piUpdate, Dr Jennifer Marohasy  adds:

“Most expensive treaty in the history of the world.” That is political economist Bjørn Lomborg ‘s assessment of the newly sealed COP21 Paris Treaty. Furthermore, uncritical media reporting that states the treaty will keep temperature rises below 2 degrees Celsius are baloney. Indeed, according to Lomborg, “The math is simple: in an implausibly optimistic best-case scenario, Paris leaves 99 per cent of the problem in place.” The official maths claims the need to reduce emissions by 6,000 gigatonnes to ensure no more than a 2 degree rise, yet the expensive Paris Treaty only delivers a reduction of 56 gigatonnes! Of course, the official maths is based on its own fake remodelled temperature data, and a physical model that ignores key atmospheric feed-back mechanisms. In short, its all really expensive baloney, with 40,000 key contributors to the baloney now jetting their way home from Paris.

About Tom Harley

Amateur ecologist and horticulturalist and CEO of Kimberley Environmental Horticulture Inc. (Tom Harley) Kimberley Environmental Horticulture Incorporated Kimberley Environmental Horticulture (KEH) is a small group of committed individuals who promote the use of indigenous plants for the landscaping of parks and gardens. Rehabilitation of Kimberley coast, bushland and pastoral regions are also high on our agenda. This includes planting seedlings, weed control, damage from erosion or any other environmental matter that comes to our attention. We come from all walks of life, from Professionals and Trades oriented occupations, Pensioners and Students, Public Servants and the Unemployed. We have a community plant nursery where we trial many old and new species, with a view to incorporating these into our landscaping trials. Our labour force are mainly volunteers, but with considerable help from the 'work for the dole' program, Indigenous Community Development Employment Program (CDEP) groups and the Ministry of Justice, with their community work orders; in this way we manage to train many people in the horticultural skills needed for indigenous plant growing. We constantly undertake field trips that cover seed and plant collection in the Kimberley. Networking around the Kimberley region and the east Pilbara is a necessary part of promoting our activities. We consult on a range of Environmental and Landscaping matters that deal with our region. Our activities involve improving Broome's residential streetscapes by including 'waterwise' priciples in planting out nature strips. Sustainable environmental horticulture is practised by members of our group. We use existing vegetation as the backbone of any plantings, using these species to advantage when planning to develop tree forms or orchards. The Broome region is sensitive to development. Subsequently many weed species have become dominant in and around developed areas. The use and movement of heavy machinery is the biggest single cause of environmental degradation. We dont live in a 'Tropical Paradise' but on the edge of the Great Sandy Desert. The plants that survive best here, grow in well-drained pindan sand, and are found from the Dampier Peninsular southward to where average rainfall is below 600mm. When we use rainforest species, detail is important when planting, water catchment, sunlight and understorey species are all considered. The use of recycled 'grey' water is an advantage here as well as treated waste-water, although many local species do not fare well with nutrients from this source. We use waterwise planting methods which include harvesting asmuch rainwater as possible, with swales designed to hold up to 200 litres, to help recharge the local groundwater aquifer. There has been a serious decline in this aquifer over the last few years. With the fast expansion of the Broome peninsular, more and more land is being covered by concrete, iron and bitumen so that much less water is available to replenish the aquifer, allowing the salt content to become significantly higher. The small Broome Peninsular is on the south-western corner of the Dampier Peninsular (bound by Broome, Derby and Cape Leveque at the northern tip). Compaction by vehicles also inhibits water retention due to the content of our local pindan sand, hard as concrete in the dry, going to soft and sloppy mud after rain. None of us are botanists, inevitably we have got some names wrong, names changed, or have not gone to sub-species level.

One Response to the Paris-ites claim victory …

    When all the gloss has gone from the Paris talks,,, when all the backslapping has finished,,, when all the dust has settled and all the spin, smoke and mirrors have been scraped away ,,,,,, what will we be left with ? Yes, WHAT ?

    What effective action has been initiated ? I mean action which really will achieve a substantial and real reduction in pollution next week. I mean substantial action which will start NOW, and not weak political promises which may happen “soon”.

    I hope I’m wrong, but I feel the outcome may look something like this cartoon . . . . . . .
