Thumbs up to Copenhagen pact

Canada among the first countries to officially endorse the climate change deal


Canada, along with Australia, Papua New Guinea and the Maldives, is among the first countries to officially notify the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change of its intention to sign on to the Copenhagen pact on climate change. Countries have until Jan. 31 to notify the international body of their willingness to ratify the deal; so far, only Cuba has denounced the agreement brokered by U.S. President Barack Obama. Under the terms of the pact, countries must pledge to keep the increase in global temperatures below two degrees Celsius, and developed countries must commit $100 billion U.S. by 2020 to the developing world to help emerging economies deal with their emissions. It does not include any caps on carbon emissions.

Thumbs up to Copenhagen pact

  1. Is this a joke?

  2. I am not in favor of an agreement being signed with the UN or IMF or any of it's affiliates as the whole Science CRU, East Anglia, United Nations and the IMF and their affiliates are a fraud – the science is proved a fraudulent manipulation of a pact between CRU and the United nations and their affiliates to be Fraudulent Racketeering! If Harper and Prentice sign on to this – if there will be a credible Independent party for the people by the people – I will vote for it will you? Folks , this is getting dangerous folks, Ignatieff and his Liberals along with Bob Rae – Bilderberg member are communist and Layton is no better!

  3. Come on folks let's hold on to our freedom let us push for some honest political leaders and I'd be willing to kick Harper and the Cons out on their ass, as they are not standing up for freedom and democracy either! I think they maybe slithering behind our backs like snakes as well! Lets get out of this Left Right Paradyne – both parties like cards are stacked with Elitists! We better watch or Harper will be handing over our Sovereignty! Check out what Government is doing behind your back at : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VebOTc-7shU

  4. Two thumbs up Canada, you're in good company.

  5. I thought the Copenhagen agreement was brokered by China and India and Obama agreed to it. Neither China and India were going to limit their chances at development for some quazi-science forecasts of 100 years. I agree with China and India. I'm disappointed that Harper and Prentice agreed to sign on to the agreement.

    Rudd of Australia is like Dion, nice guy but naive and will agree with anything to feel good.

  6. Thankfully this will have as much impact as Cretian signing the Kyoto treaty. Harper, Obama and the others just took a page out of the old master's playbook, say anything, sign on to any non-binding cockamamie scheme and then do absolutely nothing. China, India and Brazil killed this whole copenfraud charade before it ever left the station, just like Obama knew they would. Now Harper has given every Canadian the opportunity to feel like boy scouts to the world again, while continuing to drive the SUV and continue with life as usual(thank God for that). If the nutty professor(Dion) were in charge I would be worried. As it is now I am happy as a clam, except for the fact the world is having the worst cold snap in living memory. Hope were not entering that ice age the "experts" were telling us about in the 70's. Cheers.

  7. Ah, the irrelevance!

    Canada and Australia tripped while trying to walk the world stage.

    The science said to support the theory of manmade global warming has collapsed, but these "socially aware" governments are too scientifically illiterate to notice.

  8. "The science said to support the theory of manmade global warming has collapsed." I suppose, Jock Shockley, that's because you think so? Don't let facts get in your way. Don't waste the three or four hours, max, it would take for you to read your way out of your abject ignorance. Something seems to have collapsed Jock but it's not the theory of global warming.

  9. I think they failed to settle their self interest. I hope I am wrong with my conclusion. And I hope that it will be not be too late soon. Hence, sometimes issues relating to understanding needs a worst examples.
