The Climate Change Ritual Dance.

Oh, this is good.

…there is a very real hope that the 21st UN Climate Change Conference (COP 21), which starts on Monday, will be the last. Either Prince Charles and Dame Vivienne will prevail, and COP 21 will rescue Mother Earth from destruction by agreeing worldwide legally binding carbon emission restraints; or they won’t, and then, by their own logic, it will be too late for any international conference to do anything ever again, so they might as well shut up.

In case you were wondering, the author takes a third position: to wit, nothing will happen, and… nothing will then happen.  Which is very sensible of the fellow… and by that I mean that I agree with him, of course. Nothing will happen, and nothing will happen.  Which is the solution that everybody wants, really.  Well, everybody who isn’t a dupe, of course.

  1. There was a rather obscure George C. Scott movie called, “The Flim-Flam Man”. It’s about a rural con artist who takes on a young army deserter to teach him the tricks of the trade. Wonder why this movie isn’t seen more often?
    Guess the “Con Artists” have gotten too high class.
    Or “Paper Moon” for that matter.

  2. The one thing to keep in mind here is .. 2016 is coming.
    This is the penultimate climate conference Obama gets to attend as POTUS, and next year his dead-duck status will preclude any substantive changes.
    So .. this is effectively the last time Mr. $700k motorcade can try something green-shady, eh?
