Interesting ad campaign by Greenpeace for the Copenhagen climate summit
nice posters - but ultimately this conference is a waste of time
1. nothing is legally binding
2. countries in the developing world are more interested in growth than in green targets - President Lula in Brazil is sitting on massive oil reserves in the atlantic, he has massive poverty in the favelas, and a middle class which likes its cars or he can be lectured to by the West on how to behave... go figure...
3. the automotive industry is on its knees and desperate for sales - it will lobby hard against higher taxes...
4. rather like the arms race during the cold war - nobody will cut their stocks until someone else does ie 'who blinks first' - everyone will point fingers and expect someone else to take a lead
5. who is going to determine emission targets? the UN? greenpeace? Obama? Sweden? East Anglia University?
6. who is going to enforce them? (see 5)
7. Congress has a frightening number of climate sceptics
8. it may already be too late
9. people may already have given up (see 8 )
10. who is going to pay for it all....
If the science is truthfull you mean.
which is a fancy way of putting what i said anyway...
d florishIt's common sense that belching out carbon monoxide, burning up fossil fuels, doing nothing to curb our habits and giving birth to millions more dysfunctional consumerist humans who will repeat the cycle is destructive behaviour.
I'm finding this climate change skeptics (not you my friend - the ones on telly) kinda yawnsome tbh.
and long after we've died out the earth will again, renew itself and florish with the next dominant species.
Im putting my money on giant frogs.
its not the end of the world stuff, just end of the human race stuff.
