Doha Fail: Only 37 of 194 Countries Agree To Extend Old Kyoto Treaty

Well, clearly this was a failure.

Only 37 of 194 countries signed on to extend the Old Kyoto Treaty at the Doha Climate Change Conference. And it still remains open to how high their planned reductions will be.
No Trick Zone reported:

The German media report that only a totally lame climate treaty compromise was reached in Doha: Kyoto I will be extended until 2020.

For those calling for rapid reductions in CO2 emissions, the result in Doha can only be described as an utter disaster. The Doha agreement will do absolutely nothing to curb CO2 growth, let alone cut net CO2 emissions.

One reason is that few countries are left taking part. Online FOCUS magazine reports only a few countries have signed on to extending Kyoto I, which FOCUS calls a “minimal compromise”. Only 37 of 194 countries signed on. That means the treaty is internationally non-binding.

The only thing that is certain is that there are going to be many more climate junkets in the future, wasting more taxpayer money.

The left wing TAZ reports that these 37 countries are “responsible for about 15% of global greenhouse gas emissions. And it still remains open how high the planned reductions will be.” Those that signed on to make reductions couldn’t even tell us how much.

    Amazing. They have yet again failed to control a trace gas that is vital to life on this planet. I suggest each believer turn in their personal carbon that originated from air-born CO2. They will keep going as long as the junkets and $$ support can be extracted from the personnel property of others.

    “Only 37 of 194 countries signed on.”


    That’s what MSNBC calls a “Consensus”…….a “Clear Majority”…….

    I guess the memo “Re: The Emperor’s Clothes” hasn’t made it to the Doha delegation yet.

    Doha post mortem – some green activists ‘close to despair’

    [At the end of another lavishly-funded U.N. conference that yielded
    no progress on curbing greenhouse emissions, many of those most
    concerned about climate change are close to despair. –Barbara
    Lewis and Alister Doyle, Reuters, 9 December 2012


    The United Nations climate talks in Doha went a full extra 24 hours
    and ended without increased cuts in fossil fuel emissions and without
    financial commitments between 2013 and 2015. However, this is a
    “historic” agreement, insisted Qatar’s Abdullah bin Hamad Al-Attiyah,
    the COP18 president.]

    Doha climate talks throw lifeline to Kyoto Protocol

    Almost 200 nations extended a weakened United Nations plan for
    combating global warming until 2020 on Saturday with a modest
    set of measures that would do nothing to halt rising world
    greenhouse gas emissions.

    Many countries and environmentalists said the deal at the end of
    marathon two-week UN talks in OPEC-member Qatar would fail to
    slow rising temperatures or avert more floods, droughts, heatwaves
    and rising sea levels.

    [Environment ministers extended until 2020 the Kyoto Protocol, which
    obliges about 35 industrialised nations to cut their greenhouse gas
    emissions until the end of 2012. That keeps the pact alive as the sole
    legally binding climate plan.

    But the 1997 treaty, 23 days away from expiry, has been sapped by the
    withdrawal of Russia, Japan and Canada and its remaining backers, led
    by the European Union and Australia, now account for just 15% of world
    greenhouse gas emissions.]

    [Kyoto would have expired at the end of 2012 without an extension. The nations pulling out – Russia, Japan and Canada – say it is meaningless to take on new targets when emerging nations have none. And Washington never ratified the pact.]


  • any one want who those 37 countries were? I’d say norway, sweden, denmark, Finland, the netherlands, just to name some guesses.. as the media is always saying how great these places are to live all the time without any mention of Muslim populations over there.

    If they all stopped exhaling there’d be much less CO2… But eventually we’d have to deal with the methane given off from their rotting carcasses. Win-Win in my book.
