Copenhagen climate summit in disarray after ‘Danish text’ leak

The Guardian reports that the leak of the “Danish text” has put the Copenhagen climate change summit in “disarray” (see Copenhagen climate summit in disarray after ‘Danish text’ leak). Developing countries “reacted furiously to leaked documents that show world leaders will next week be asked to sign an agreement that hands more power to rich countries and sidelines the UN’s role in all future climate change negotiations.” The document apparently sets unequal limits on per capita carbon emissions, allowing people in rich countries to emit nearly twice as much.

Meanwhile, James Hansen, “the scientist who convinced the world to take notice of the looming danger of global warming says it would be better for the planet and for future generations” if the talks collapse.

If our children and grandchildren can’t stop us from destroying their world, who will?

  1. Global Warming Caused by Solar Radiation, Argue Some Scientists. While the world’s politicians argue in Copenhangen, some scientists are speaking out at an alternative “sceptics’ conference.”

    While the world’s politicians argue in Copenhangen, some scientists are speaking out at an alternative “sceptics’ conference.”

    more than 50 scientists, businessmen and lobby groups met to discuss alternative theories about global warming and climate change, reports the Telegraph. The paper highlights a few scientists, including Professor Henrik Svensmark, a physicist at the Danish National Space Center in Copenhagen, who said the recent warming period was caused by solar activity.

    Svensmark said that the last time the world experienced such high temperatures, during the medieval warming period, the Sun and the Earth were in a similar cycle.

    Professor Nils-Axel Morner, a geologist from Stockholm University, said sea-level rise has also been exaggerated by the “climate alarmists” using computer models.

    He said observational data from lake sediments, coast lines and trees show sea levels have remained stable.
