Emissions rights in a breath...

”The politicians in Copenhagen have the power to shape history’s judgment on this generation. The transformation will be costly, but the shift to a low-carbon society holds out the prospect of more opportunity than sacrifice. Climate change affects everyone, and must be solved by everyone.” Opportunities for whom, one might ask. Everyone? “Many of us, particularly in the developed world, will have to change our lifestyles. We will have to pay more for our energy, and use less of it. The transformation will be costly. The flow of capital tells its own story.” So, who’s...

1%, 2%, 5%, why not 50%?...

Africa is about to turn up the heat on the climate conference by demanding that the developed nations sets aside 5% of their GDP and gives it to them, to compensate them for the effects of global warming. Some countries gives 1% of their GDP in contributions to develop and aid underdeveloped countries, the UN draft suggested a 2% levy on developed nations GDP, and now, Africa demands 5%.

The real and very controversial issue is if it is carbon dioxide – CO2 – that is causing it.  Why do I say that? Simple. The documents that many countries are supposed to sign in Copenhagen has 3 major parts. 1. Reduce emission of CO2. 2. Introduce a trading mechanism for treading emission permits. 3. Make UN...

In the name of the earth...

“If carbon dioxide would be such a big threat to humanity, how come there is such thing as emissions trading? Who could give anyone the right to sell out the survival of mankind in the name of the earth?” Damien Fields, December 8,...

CO2 – Is it really a demon?...

We have all over the last decade been told that CO2 is the main culprit for the “Anthropogenic Global Warming” (AGW) – later dubbed “Climate Change” (CC), but is this really true? The public story is that unless we reduce our emissions of CO2, the world will drown in rising seas, the arctic caps will melt, species go extinct and we will slowly cook to death. Is AGW, or man-made global warming real? While writing this, let’s keep it to layman terms that can be easily understood, potentially sacrificing a tiny bit of accuracy for ease of understanding and...
