A protester in a polar bear costume holds a sign chiding the U.S. at the U.N. climate change talks in Cancun.

Climate talks in Mexico wrapped up with a bare-bones compromise. As with every other international climate negotiation, some see the pact as a big step forward, while activists claim the deal doesn’t go far enough.

The agreement includes setting up a fund to help poorer countries meet goals. But it lacks any legally binding way to get countries to live up to promises to curb emissions. —JCL
 

The BBC:

UN talks in Cancun have reached a deal to curb climate change, including a fund to help developing countries.

Nations endorsed compromise texts drawn up by the Mexican hosts, despite objections from Bolivia.

The draft documents say deeper cuts in carbon emissions are needed, but do not establish a mechanism for achieving the pledges countries have made.

.. and media flummery..

“As with every other international climate negotiation, some see the pact as a big step forward, while activists claim the deal doesn’t go far enough.”

Fair and balanced! .. but there is real climate science.. and real issues with climate change and real causes and effects and dangers.. Plus of course real players in the game for huge stakes..

All distilled to what some people may or may not believe.

Great!

INDIA PROPOSING LEGALLY BINDING EMISSION CURBS AT CANCUN:
What these buggers agree to is what their C.I.A. masters dictate and how many hundreds of millions of dollars bribe the C.I.A. gives them. India cannot “enforce"anything on the U.S. but this will give the U.S. another pretext to invade and subjugate India. Until the per capita emissions of the U.S. come down to India’s level, India should not make any commitments of any kind. India must demand, for example, that SUV’s be banned in the U.S. and India should reserve the right to invade the U.S. to enforce the ban. I am India’s expert in strategic defence and the father of India’s strategic program including the Integrated Guided Missile Development Program. In my blog titled ‘Nuclear Supremacy for India Over U.S.’, which can be found by a Yahoo search with the title, I have shown how India can have the military and economic strength to start doing this to the U.S. immediately, not just in environmental issues but in all areas. This move on the part of the U.S. is meant to throttle India’s economic and military strength. As I have shown in my blog, this will not be allowed and nor will numerous other things these buggers have agreed to which grievously injure India. It will require the nuclear destruction of New Delhi followed by the coast-to-coast destruction of the U.S. by India with 10,000 thermonuclear warheads and extermination of its population. This is the only thing—extermination of the United States’ population by India—whose environmental effects matter. For one thing, it will end all emissions generated now by the U.S. population. This so-called conference takes no account of this all-important factor and is, therefore, worthless.
As I have shown in my blog, after British rule, India has been under C.I.A. rule. This goveeconomically and my blog above shows how India can start doing this immediately, the United States said India can play a very important role at the Cancun conference, that is, propose this ‘legally binding’ commitment as a proxy for the United States because, first and foremost, it cuts India’s own throat and gives the United States a pretext to invade India if it does not accept the slavery of the nuclear deal) but was kept secret even from the Indian delegation to pre-empt any opposition to it in India and spring it as a surprise and a fait accompli. This is treason of the most brazen kind.  Satish Chandra
rnment has no legitimacy and no agreements it makes will bind India in any way.
This ‘legally-binding’ commitment by India regarding emissions has been pushed by the U.S. in support of the nuclear deal which fatally injures India’s defence and economically loots it in numerous ways; see my blog. The U.S. is saying that if you use coal to generate electricity instead of buying nuclear reactors from us—which, besides looting India, cripple its nuclear weapons program, we will invade you and enforce this. As I have said (see my blog), this requires the nuclear destruction of New Delhi and then the coast-to-coast destruction of the United States by India.
This ‘legally-binding commitment’ offer from India was pre-arranged by the United States with Jairam Ramesh and Manmohan Singh (several days before the conference, after I wrote that the combined population of the 28 white countries in NATO, which assert a right to invade and occupy the Indian subcontinent—that is, India—at will, does not equal India’s and India must refrain from touching them or sitting near them or at the same level with them militarily or

climate science has been exposed as a scam
this is simply a tax on countries and a massive transfer of wealth
this is the elite making more money for themselves and the rest of us suckers paying for it
