Closer look at “landmark” climate deal reveals UN’s “low confidence” assumptions

Brian LilleyArchive

The headlines are declaring a “landmark deal” on climate, but will this deal work and if so, for whose benefit?

Despite the heavy push by green activists, this is a voluntary agreement. It isn’t binding and countries will set their own targets and spend a lot of taxpayer money fighting a rise in temperature that scientists aren’t even sure is happening. They say there is consensus but actually none exists.

Remember this entire scientific process is based on computer modelling and though this fact is buried in the UN’s scientific review, computer models have consistently been proven wrong when later compared with actual measurements. Not only wasn’t it as warm as the models predicted but it was actually colder.

None of the dire and extreme weather predictions about temperatures, floods, droughts, hurricanes or other assorted catastrophes, were right.

After getting so many details wrong, they use very careful language in their documents, so careful that the whole document comes with enough caveats and cautions to make it essentially meaningless.

And for this, we will try to change our entire planet and Canada will revamp our entire economy? That is a bad idea.

We were sold a bill of goods going into this conference, and now that they have their deal, watch for what they will promise next, what other snake oil they will try to sell us.

Lets face it, the Marxist/Leninist Proletariat revolution never materialized and all the dreaded Capitalist countries were not overthrown in bloody violence. But the Oligarchs still want their power and the loot with it so they use other nefarious means to get it. They will use the U.N. to push their hidden agenda of Global Governance and they will promote Cultural Revolution. They will come after your guns (your personal protection from them), your property rights (bill C6), your money (carbon taxes), your family unity and your faith. They want to destroy the middle class (de-industrialization), they want a few wealthy Oligarchs to rule and the rest of us (peons) kept in Feudalistic poverty. The citizens have to be kept “Dumbed Down” with “Bread and Circus” so as not to awaken them to the Crimes being perpetrated on them. These criminals must be EXPOSED for who they are. Keep up the good work Rebels.

bill Smith commented – “Our forests absorb CO2 from countries that are net emitters of CO2 such as China and USA…….. how much are we charging them for this service?”

You must have been reading my posts of the last 3 yrs :-)

Yeah sure, because the liberals sure honored their Kyoto agreement LMAO.

You hit the nail on the head,Chris Kealey, lets have some accountability as to the 2.6 Billion committed
by our niaive PM in order to ensure that the money that our hard earned taxpayers has been used for the sole purpose of ensuring it goes into green energy, rather than going straight into the countries the pockets of the third worlds dictators and kings that have control of these countries. In addition, I am still not a believer of Climate Change and be to trust any of their computer models to forecast the weather into 10 to 20 years ahead when our local weather channel cannot accurately forecast the weather only a few days ahead. I do think we should at least get the message to our local opposition party member and sign any petitions they recommend in support of them on this issue, as I think that Harper was on the right path on this in not having anything to do with it. I feel we are in for rough economic times ahead if a carbon tax is put into effect as it will increase the cost of anything that moves and here in Canada it is very necessary that a lot of things that move because of our large land base across Canada I have not heard any suggestions from any of them as to how to run an agricultural tractor on a windmill or any of the mining companies able to run their operations on either wind or solar.

In addition to my last comment. The best thing we can do about Climate Change is to sit back and do nothing. The climate will look after it’s self. If it were possible to reduce man made carbon to the levels that NATO idiots espouse, it is likely that all the trees and plants, on earth, would die.

There is low confidence that the United Nations is incorruptible , but there is very high confidence that the United Nations is a extortionate organization.

It’s already started. The shiny pony has promised to give $2.6 billion to the UN climate change fund. As this is Canadian taxpayers money we should demand that it come with a stipulation that the UN provide proof that this money is being spent on helping third world countries fight climate change. My bet is it will be spent by the UN and third world dictators and never get to the people that need it. Only an idiot would throw that much money at something without getting back tangible proof of how it is going to be used. Oh. that’s right it’s a Liberal government and they will just add it to the other billions they will spend over the next 4 yrs. So much for the small deficits they promised during the election campaign. We, our children and grandchildren will be paying for all this eventually and the UN will keep asking for more as it won’t do a thing about climate change. What a scam.

Climate change is real…. BECAUSE THAT"S WHAT CLIMATES DO!!!!! Believing in our ability to control that is hubris of the worst kind. Volcanos are real… perhaps we can control them by sacrificing more virgins. It’s exactly the same fairytale fantasy these climate-change conferences embrace, but funded at the expense of tax payers…. with the resolve to ensure there are far less tax payers to fund these luxurious jet-set party junkets by killing jobs. Western civilization is now in self-destruct mode.

Did anyone notice, it is not Global Warming anymore, this has now become Climate Change. This is because that it has been proven, beyond doubt that global temperature have not changed, other than minor fluctuations, due to abnormal activities of the Sun, for the last two decades.

Man Made CO2 emissions have remained roughly the same since the end of the Minnie Ice Age, (17th & 18th Century’s)

The whole Temperature and CO2 escapade is nothing more than a Marxist scam by the UN and Politicians.

Canada needs to get out of the UN, we can pick our own Allies. It is unfortunate that we have to deal with Trudeau and his gang, first.

Carbon Tax equals full slush buckets. Not to forget, we have to pay for the importation of Justins friends and we will also have to feed them.

While this agreement is voluntary and has no non-compliance penalty mechanisms, you can be sure our new government is going to take it run with it, with gusto. With Junior, and his sidekick Butthead at the helm, Canada has no chance. As I’ve mentioned before, expect a new carbon tax to be tabled in the spring budget that will essentially be a tax on everything. That will likely just be the start. My main concern is new federal regulations will be written mandating provinces generate a certain percentage of their power from renewables by a certain time. Ontario-style energy poverty coming to a province near you! And, BC won’t get off light since, in the greentard world, hydroelectric is not considered renewable energy. They truly do live in a land of rainbows and unicorn shit.

Richard Neufeld, they know that if they were honest about it, then they would never get a penny, so for them honesty is out of the question.

Now, to get this message out to the uninformed masses in North America will be the greatest struggle. And, in Canada, we do NOT have the assistance of the main stream media! Tough, isn’t it?

I wish these guys would be honest about it. They want a global socialist utopia and this is there way to start the ball rolling in that direction.

Exactly, the only cure these Government Representatives are going to try and sell us is simply an excuse and means to to siphon money from Canadian citizens’ in a so called wealth transference as they tell us they are re-distributing our money to poor Third world countries! Let me ask you do you actually believe a citizen from any Third World country would ever see a dime of benefit from that sucking siphon hose? :)
I am betting dollars to doughnuts that money will find it’s way into pockets owned by Al Gore, Pachurri of the UN and the likes of George Soros as well as being invested in the UN so that it can gain the strength of power and be the center of World Governance!
Yes we have been sold a Bill of goods and they are going to keep on pushing this fraud tyranny leading the people to chains and debt slavery if we don’t wise up to the gigantic line of BULLoney ( Balogna ) that they are shoving down our throats, take our stand vote them out of power and say NO to their proposals of theft from we the people!

  • Typo below*** forests of the world absorb 30%.. not 10% ****
commented 2015-12-15 12:23:30 -0500
So we are all going to die and dirty countries have to pay.. fine, I’ll play along.
Canada generates 1.6% of the world’s CO2 (UN)… and the forests of the worlds only absorb 10% of the CO2 generated (UN)… fine. Yet Canada owns 10% of all the world’s forests (UN). 30% x 10% = 3%… therefore, Canadian forests absorb almost twice as much CO2 compared to what Canada generates. But CO2 does not know political boundaries… Our forests absorb CO2 from countries that are net emitters of CO2 such as China and USA…….. how much are we charging them for this service?

There are only 3 reasons for these idiots to keep pursing this climate fraud – 1) stupidity ( which explains our PM’s support), 2) ego – can’t stand to lose credibility (which explains our PM and his anal wart Butts) and 3) rapacious insider greed -(which explains Mo Strong, Gore and Soozook who all will reap profits on climate fear mongering and crack pot placebo profiteering)

The science is faulty, the politics are anti-democratic and the economics disastrous. Ultimately it will be the economics which jar these paracites and fools back to the reality of a sustainable parasite-host symbiosis. You cannot suck blood from a dead host. In order for costly climate solutions to work you have to start with a vibrant economy which can sustain such parasitism without harming the worker bees at the bottom of the hive (where the tax revenues come from) . IF the parasitism you are running has killed productivity there is no longer any revenue to steal to lavish on anything but bare subsistence social safety net subsidy which an increasing number of citizens are drawing on as productivity collapses.

I see tat the thicker, more reflexive tax and spend Liberals have not fully realized that the borrowing they are doing to support non essential welfare systems will be defaulted on as productivity (revenues) decline. It is not a coincidence that the province with the largest climate/green debt load/borrowing – also has the largest number of minimum wage jobs. You can’t suck blood from a rock.You can’t finance airy fairy agendas with unrecoverable debt.

It’s just big government trying to create global taxes, global laws and a global government headquartered in Europe.

This is Europe’s final stand. Global economic collapse will crush Europe.
commented 2015-12-15 11:34:52 -0500
It will work just fine if the goal is to further destroy the worlds economies. Just look at what it’s done to the UK and the EU, who bought into all of this nonsense twenty years ago, and their 1930’s era unemployment rates, their energy poverty because of energy prices which are not affordable.

The truth is climate change will occur with or without our help. Climate change gas occurred thriughout earth’s history and long before man’s influence. Chicken little climate freaks are a joke ,unfortunately we will all pay for their insanity.
