Is it too late to halt global warming?

U/S. President Barack Obama and leaders from the rest of the world’s top economic powers acknowledged Monday NZT that there is no hope of a major breakthrough over climate change by the end of the year.

Are world leaders taking climate change seriously?

This bleak acknowledgment followed comments from Danish Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen at the APEC summit in Singapore that next month’s conference in Copenhagen is no longer likely to yield a major accord to battle global warming.

Kumi Naidoo, the new International Executive Director of Greenpeace, told CNN that climate talks have so far been strangled by “short-term expediency, election cycles and national parochialism.”
He said politicians need to realize that this is not a business negotiation because “nature does not negotiate.”
He added: “From Florida to Bangladesh one in 10 people live within a meter of sea level. The ice-caps are melting and it seems inevitable that all of those people will have to defend or abandon their homes this century.”
According to Mike Froman, White House deputy national security adviser, President Obama made a surprise appearance at a breakfast devoted to climate change at the APEC summit and told other leaders it’s important for at least some progress to be made next month.
But Naidoo insists we need a deal now before it really is too late.
Do you have any confidence that the world’s leaders are united in their desire to secure meaningful agreements on climate change?

….Are World leaders taking Climate Change seriously?

.. Yes. Because they are part of the NWO scheme of things to reduce world population, by hook or by crook!…Vaccinations, chem trails,reducing advanced western countries to third world status through their carbon tax, carbon footprint nonsense…and so it goes on, ad nauseum…

…climate warming is scaremongering at it’s best or worst, it is not science, and the fact that Obama is pushing it along with the present encumbant usurpers of the Vatican should be proof enough!

If enough of the sheeples go along with their continuing lies, then God help us!

To David of New Brighton: ignorant denialist nonsense.
