Obama's Lonely Climate Summit – world leaders are staying home

Eric Worrall writes: The imminent climate summit in New York is rapidly turning into an utter embarrassment for President Obama and UN Secretary General Bank Ki-Moon, in addition to becoming a bit of a punishment round for national deputy leaders.

Aussie PM Tony Abbott today defended his decision not to hop on an earlier flight to America, so he could attend the UN climate conference in New York, because he has more important matters to attend to, such as running the country.

http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/national/tony-abbott-defends-skipping-un-climate-change-summit-in-new-york/story-fni0xqrb-1227060005413

Chinese President Xi Jinping and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi  have also indicated they likely won’t attend the summit.

Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper has indicated he will not be attending. https://ca.news.yahoo.com/blogs/canada-politics/stephen-harper-to-skip-un-climate-summit-183946998.html

Even Angela Merkel, President of über green Germany, will not be attending the UN climate summit. http://notrickszone.com/2014/05/26/merkel-snubs-new-york-ban-ki-moon-climate-conference-burying-the-global-climate-agreement/

Of course, things would probably have been totally different, if the summit organisers had guaranteed that attendees would definitely not have to sit through any more boring climate presentations by former Vice President Al Gore.

The economic crisis (i.e. a lack of jobs and a lack of money to spend on health care, education, roads, defense, and so on.) is not over. In a time of economic crisis it will be impossible for politicians to push Climate change policies which are obviously mutual assured economic destruction.
The climate change policies will and have wasted trillions of dollars on green scams which have resulted and will result in almost no significant reduce in CO2 emissions to solve a problem which is not a problem.
P.S. The public is not going to support sending billions of dollars to corrupt developing countries.
The only people who have benefited from the climate change scams are the US, UN and EU climate change bureaucracy, the green scam providers, and the climate ‘change’ scientists.
How long will the warmists keep up this charade? What is their back up plan? The planet has started to cool based on record sea ice in the Antarctic and the rapid recovery of sea in the Arctic.
http://arctic.atmos.uiuc.edu/cryosphere/IMAGES/seaice.anomaly.antarctic.png
There is a physical reason for the sudden high latitude cooling. Cosmic ray flux/galactic cosmic rays (CRF/GCR) (mostly high speed protons that create ions in the atmosphere which cause clouds to form and affect cloud properties is the highest ever recorded for a solar ‘maximum”. More CRF/GRC more high latitude clouds, colder planet. The planet has and will cool.

Part of their backup plan is to lie about temperatures by homogenizing data. May, June , August are the hottest May,June and August ever they claim, and 1/2 year data has been readjusted by a few hundredths of a degree to make it look warmer as well so NASA can proclaim 2014 the hottest year ever while the sea ice and glaciers grow.

Realistically the only way to reduce carbon dioxide, supposedly to reduce global warming, is to no burn fossil fuels. By staying home each “leader” is preventing many tons of CO2 from spewing into the air. If they care about GW they will stay home.

The best way to reduce CO2 is to grow more plants, Plants take in CO2 and give off O2. By the way O2 is what man breathem to stay alive. If we reduced CO2 to zero, all life on earth would expire.

William Astley,
Yes. The Antarctic is gaining lots of ice, and global ice cover is right at it’s 30-year average. Therefore, CO2 cannot be the cause of any significant [ie: measurable] “global warming”. CO2 simply does not cause any measurable global warming.
In fact, global warming stopped in the 1990’s. But the eco-lobby is still flogging that dead horse.
Over the past century and a half, the trace gas CO2 [“carbon”] has risen from 3 parts in 10,000, to only 4 parts in 10,000. That is a verified empirical observation.
Based on that small, harmless rise, President Obama proposes that we must endure skyrocketing utility bills, and drastically reduce our standard of living. All based on Obama’s scientific illiteracy.
We are burdened with a President who listens to eco-lunatics, but who disregards honest scientists.

Let’s not forget the reason for the panic now being displayed by the Marxists. They want that global carbon tax! They realize we’re in for another brutal winter. The thickening ice caps at both poles guarantee it. They also realize their dreams of scarooing us with a carbon tax will be doomed before next spring.

But we can’t have plenty of time either, for the same reason. So, it has to be …. just about enough time to “do something”.

It is always ALMOST too late. There is always JUST enough time to save the world. In 2009 the timeframe was 50 days, according to the Britsish Prime Minister. Today, “almost too late” is as flexible as a fisherman’s yardstick.
And it is ALWAYS worse than we thought. Just not quite bad enough to assure immediate or short-term climate disaster. It must be so. When the climate moves in the direction of what is predicted, the catastrophe-cries have a field day. Same thing when the climate DOESN’T move as they have claimed, just a blit more shrill in tone; now budgets are at stake, soemthing far more important than saving the planet.

The US has experienced more record cold temperatures than at any time in the last 50 years. I am genuinely sorry if you bought into all of Al Gore’s Chicken Little nonsense.

“saving the planet” from WHAT? the planet will go on doing what is has been doing, and will do, whether mankind exists or has self-anhialated. The question is not whether the climate is changing. It is, whether it is anthropogenic. And the answer is , yes is is in localized areas such as Bejing – and NO it isn’t, across 99% of the land/sea area and volume of this planet.
Hence, there is nothing to talk about in NY summits. The “global warming” scam is over. The data does not support. The “scientists” are really politicians, who cooked the books, in order to create a crisis they could use to institute more taxes and revenue sources.
What is clear though, is that this green pagan religion is causing our economy to crash and keep on crashing, globally. Maybe, just maybe, THAT is the real reason the other leaders will not participate. Maybe they want to put their people back to work, unlike Obama, who continually establishes “new normals” of underemployment, small business failures, and smaller middle class.

Climate Summit: European Union surprised Tony Abbott will not attend high level climate talks
Mr Abbott will not be attending, despite the fact that he is due to attend a UN Security Council meeting in New York the next day.
EU commissioner for climate action Connie Hedegaard said it came as a surprise.
“It is, of course, I think, a pity that not everyone is going,” she said.
“At least 125 heads of state have sent a strong signal to the rest of the world that … climate change is important, and they know they have a role to play and a responsibility to take in order for the world to address climate change.

“an old lady to support a prince” . . good one CodeTech.
It really is a problem across Africa where these little green monsters and their NGO’s are able to apply their social engineering fantasies on unsuspecting, trusting, people. You see it everywhere, Jatropha crops for bio-fuel are one instance. They just fail in every way but the “expats” get paid big bucks anyway while the locals just get poorer and poorer because they are denied access to cheap, reliable and ubiquitous energy and modern technology that works.
I have long been of the opinion that the best way to save the environment is to hook up every village to a decent electricity supply. That would be the very best use of aid money and it would stop trees being felled for cooking fuel, allow people to get educated and read even when the sun goes down, and fuel economic growth and thus reduce poverty.
Here in the Western Cape everybody gets the first 50 kwh each month for free and that has transformed many lives.

There is no worming at all not even your 0.01, does not exists, all the numbers are made up and phony, there is no global worming, never was never will.
The sun controls earth climate and since the sun is a variable star, the earth temperatures will fluctuate with the sun intensity increasing or decreasing.
And that is what I call settled science, not want politicians or other idiots tell you.

Tony Abbott spent the week:
1) visiting Arnhem Land to meet the local Aboriginal people and find out directly how to help them. This group with the lowest life span, highest incarceration rate and greatest degree of poverty.
2) ensuring a bunch of wannabe terrorists in Sydney got arrested before they could cause terror
3) attend parliament which is his prime role as Prime Minister.
Meeting the UN, Al Gore et al, and a bunch of wackadoo communists to discuss climate mythology in New York comes a distant 12,456 on the list of things Tony Abbott could have done.
Kevin Rudd and Juliar Gillard would have been in New York, which is why they and their Green mates were sacked last year.

So what should President Obama do? He was expecting essentially a summit conference of the major energy consumers of the world, and all he gets are second and third level stand-ins. I guess he’ll have to meet with the leaders of the impacted countries and promise lotsa US aid. (Perhaps he can offer the Maldives an air traffic control system when they have to evacuate. At least they’ll have plenty of airports!)
He won’t be able to play his Copenhagen get-out-of-town-card – No blizzards in September and the hurricane season has flopped again.
It’s lonely at the top.

From Ric Werme’s ABC post above :
“I do not know what the reasons would be behind it, but, of course, the world will interpret who is showing up and who will not be showing up.”
The interpretation is obvious to any thinking person – this is not the crisis it was trumped up as being, as few leaders can be bothered to show up at all.

We have the sanely-run regions of the Anglosphere who finally have leaders willing to stand up for sanity.
And we have the Germans who can’t bring themselves to acknowledge they’ve been scammed but who at least have decided they won’t turn their pockets out for the Wabenzi.
This summit will consist of those industrial states whose leadership still believes in unicorns, and all the third-world kleptocrats running around with their hands out.

Like a Dull Knife: The People’s Climate “Farce”
Tuesday, 16 September 2014 10:25 By Quincy Saul, Truthout | Op-Ed

The climate justice movement has an expiration date. If the tipping points in the earth system are passed, and the feedback loops begin their vicious cycle, human attempts at mitigation will be futile,
[…]
In other words, we have roughly four months to work for climate justice. The world is literally at stake; all life on earth is at risk. Never has there been a more urgent or comprehensive mandate.
[…]
We are going to join the rest of the human race. For 200 years too long, citizens of the United States have been parasites and predators on the rest of the world. To prevent climate catastrophe, we are going to leave our imperial hubris behind, and join with the revolutionary ecosocialist uprisings that are sweeping the global South.

September 16, 2014 7:06 am

The calculating psychology of the thing intrigues me. I’m pretty sure Abbott is leaning heavily towards scepticism, both about the cause and the proposed solutions. And he is no shrinking violet, and he doesn’t have to face the electorate for a while. But he still feels the need to go along with the warmist flow to a significant extent. Leaving aside the very smooth and intelligent but largely unprincipled Obama and Cameron, I figure there are a number of other leaders thinking like Abbott, but going with the tide all the same.
Why is this? I think they all – like half the world – feel an oppressive moral obligation not to oppose the general will in the face of a substantial (if largely imagined) threat. A sort of group-think has developed among the great and the good – and not for the first time! – and breaking ranks will take great moral and political courage. We’re going to need a Churchill to get us out of this and, just as in 1940, we are only going to turn to him when the enemy battalions (energy crises, draconian regulation and taxation, and great impoverishment) are at the very door. And where is he? Is he yet amongst us?

Climate has been changing since Year One and will continue to change regardless of the inept flailing of the Left. Mankind has neither the power or the wisdom to affect climate and honestly, why would we want to? Climate change is beneficial. It contributes to the tremendous bio-diversity we see around us and is a driving force in Darwin’s theory of the survival of the fittest. A static climate would only serve to create stagnation within the ecosystem and eventually the death of most species presently alive, with no adaptations coming down the pike to replace them. These “Global Warming” acolytes are nothing more than ill informed ideologues in it for their own self enrichment or because of the brainwashing being conducted by the compromised media and the corrupt governments that dictate the news to them.

Citizens are beginning to comprehend climate change. It means a collapse of their standard of living, and massive government control of everything. If it is needed. If the sacrifice is needed, it will redefine life on earth. Billions will stay in poverty and many middle class people will fall into the lower class.
Burning carbon means exploiting a economical life supporting fuel, to make energy. Do without and starve. All the green energies cost too much and always will as their technical processes are inherently very poor (excluding fission.)
As people comprehend these facts of life, their “leaders” go into hiding.

No wonder, the facts are very simple:
CO2 is a “trace gas” in air, insignificant by definition. It absorbs 1/7th as much IR, heat energy, from sunlight as water vapor which has 188 times as many molecules capturing 1200 times as much heat making 99.9% of all “global warming.” CO2 does only 0.1% of it. For this we should destroy our economy?
The Medieval Warming from 800 AD to 1300 AD that Micheal Mann erased to make his “hockey stick” was several degrees warmer than anything “global warmers” fear. It was the longest recorded time, 500 years, of peace with great abundance for all.
The Vostock Ice Core data analysis show CO2 increases follow temperature increases by 800 years 19 times in 450,000 years. That makes temperature change cause and CO2 change effect; not the other way around. This alone refutes the anthropogenic global warming concept.
Carbon combustion generates 80% of our energy. Control and taxing of carbon would give the elected ruling class more power and money than anything since the Magna Carta of 1215 AD.
Most scientists and science educators work for tax supported institutions eager to help government raise more money for them. And, they love being seen as “saving the planet.”

Do the math, if you can. Hard for the climate shrews to do maybe, but the percentage of the atmosphere that is co2 is less than .0004%. For you dumbass democrats, that is WAY less than 1%.

@rho1953…
I think you mean 0.04% CO2, which is 0.0004 of the atmosphere.
Man made CO2 = 3% and fossil fuel burning is about half of that.
Therefore Man-made CO2 is about 0.000006 of the atmosphere.
Who, in their right mind, would believe that this small amount of CO2 from burning fossil fuels can cause ice ages; global warming; catastophic sea level rise, etc., etc., etc., ……….

With major increase of ice in both Antartica and the Artic, the decrease in the ozone hole, and with the common knowledge that carbon dioxide is needed for plant growth and is not a pollutant, the global elitists who have been pushing the climate change scam do not have a leg to stand on. Their policies are degrading everyone’s economies and lowering the world’s standard of living, especially in the western countries. The third world countries and the communist countries are not participating in this economic suicide. I wonder if the Ohio state University discovery that coal energy can be extracted without burning, has been stopped by Obama and his minions. Climate Change enthusiasts have stopped major improvements in energy productions for the sake of their radical false beliefs. It is almost like a religious cult with that bunch.

But they will miss Leo’s film.

In the runup to the Sept. 23 UN Climate Summit in New York, Leonardo DiCaprio is releasing a series of films about the “climate crisis.”
The first is “Carbon,” which tells us the world is threatened by a “carbon monster.” Coal, oil, natural gas and other carbon-based forms of energy are causing dangerous climate change and must be turned off as soon as possible, DiCaprio says.
But he has identified the wrong monster. It is the climate scare itself that is the real threat to civilization.
DiCaprio is an actor, not a scientist; it’s no real surprise that his film is sensationalistic and error-riddled. Other climate-change fantasists, who do have a scientific background, have far less excuse.

Normal cyclicity. And they understand that a lot of people stand to make a lot of money and power hyping the false concept of anthropogenic global warming. World leaders have used the concept when useful politically but none of them are going to waste their own time attending to this farce. And given the fact that everyone paying attention understands by now what an inept lightweight Obama is, nobody will feel compelled to come to support him.

I have worked at, for over thorty years, and retired from The Los Alamos National Laboratory and while my fields were engineering and health physics I know enough, even as a drudge user, to have a valid opinion on the subject.
It is clear that global, warming as caused by human activity is a sham and has always been one.
It is purely a political construct to allow a small group of elitists to control the activities of the many, who they feel are entirely inferior to themselves. Power and money, money and power, it always comes down to that and that, my friend is a shame and a sham.

All Democrats and supporters here and abroad are trying to flood the media with hysterical climate change & global warming alarms and fabricated evidence to take the heat off Dem candidates in the November 2014 and 2016 elections due to the train wreck of Obamacare, ISIS inaction and immigration chaos! They shout, scream, cry, make outlandish claims and won’t stop till after the elections! Poor Democrats! The tsunami cometh!

Wonder if this has anything to do with the growing polar ice cap and the fact the the Antarctic Ice Shelf is larger than ever recorded. At any rate it’s a missed opportunity for Obama – no “selfies” or passing out CD’s full of his speeches – not to mention that Michelle Ma Belle won’t be able to model “his” latest living room curtain dress….

If national leaders are out of touch, the elitist, sociopathic, shadow government control freaks are from another planet. The media is controlled, and the master manipulators take things to a level that amounts tomgas lighting abuse on a global scale. It has come to the point that the conspiracy theories that I once laughed at make perfect sense now. I don’t doubt NATO nations are comprised of manchurian candidates anymore, the Opium Wars are alive and well except today the victims are the West. What does the guy who installed Radical Islam and Carter Part Deux have in common? The man who in a 2009 speech to his fellow elitists, Zbigniew Brzezinski said, “It Is Infinitely Easier to Kill a Million People than it is to Control Them”. He is on video and can’t deny what he said, as he has done with his other statements.

Brzezinski was an “advisor” for Obama’s campaign, apparently not on the books. Nothing is what it seems friends.

Those on the left crave power, authority and money and they will say anything, do anything lie about anything to obtain all they can of each of those. The proof of what I say is right here, in front of us in the form of the utter [absence] of global warming.
It never was occurring, it is not now occurring nor will it ever occur, it is a myth designed to generate income and allow those on the left to lord over the rest of us.
One must realize that those on the left are utterly convinced that they are completely superior to the normal people out here and feel quite entitled to tell us what to do, how to do it and when we may actually do what they tell us while all the while they live like kings and queens on our taxes because us little people, why we owe them on the left. Yes sir, we owe them just because they are gracious enough to put up with us and allow us to serve them.
That is your typical leftist, your typical democrat, your ivy league elitist.

Margaret Thatcher was not of “the left” and she started the global warming scare.
Global warming is NOT a left vs right issue although the extreme right often tries to pretend it is.
Attempts to divide global warming sceptics on left vs right terms act to negate opposition to the global warming scare.

OK, then let’s divide global warming skeptics into The Have vs. The Have Nots, as regards to Common Sense, shall we?

You ask

NO! Let’s UNITE global warming skeptics in support of truth and, thus, in opposition to the global warming scare.
I don’t like concern trolls who look for excuses to ‘divide and rule’ global warming skeptics.

Uh o! Made a critical mistake. I criticized the left so inlieu of an audit by the IRS I am being moderated. Let us see if this morphs into censored!
At this point, only the shadow knows…

Some constructive criticism if I may, if you are employing a program that seems to contain, “black box software”, in that you do not know how it works, what to expect from it and apparently have found yourself either apologizing for or simply explaining, perhaps it is time to employ a different program. In fact you all may choose one that is more understandable or even may be made more user friendly for your application.
How often does this program select comments for review and what does this review consist of? These would be both logical and interesting places to begin an analysis of the performance of this software and allow you to figure out how it is thinking, or rather how it’s authors and users were/are thinking. That’s where it becomes interesting and fun.

“Aussie PM Tony Abbott today defended his decision not to hop on an earlier flight to America, so he could attend the UN climate conference in New York, because he has more important matters to attend to, such as running the country.”
Well see, Obama doesn’t have that responsibility so he can attend the summit as long as he wants then play some golf and then do whatever.

So, what they’re saying is that the only countries showing up are the ones hoping for a handout from the funding that comes from ludicrous “cap and tax” penalties on the richer countries. Finally the larger countries are figuring out that they arent interested in funding the prosperity of third world countries at the expense of their own. I guess the lessons of the EU havent totally been forgotten?

Well, what are they going to talk about? Ways to cover up the highest recorded Antarctica ice on record? That’s a no go! Wait for a hot year, and then gripe about the end of the world. The timing is bad.

More and more each passing day the world’s leaders realize Barry Soetoro-Obama is an empty suit. His hyperbolic “climate change” rants and vilification of all who question him as “climate deniers” has many people IGNORING the self-aggrandizing man-child POSER POS POTUS.

MORE GOOD NEWS…GLOBAL WARMERS EAT EXCREMENT SANDWICH:
PITTSBURGH (AP) — The final report from a landmark federal study on hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, found no evidence that chemicals or brine water from the gas drilling process moved upward to contaminate drinking water at a site in western Pennsylvania.
The Department of Energy report, released Monday, was the first time an energy company allowed independent monitoring of a drilling site during the fracking process and for 18 months afterward. After those months of monitoring, researchers found that the chemical-laced fluids used to free gas stayed about 5,000 feet below drinking water supplies.
