For all the supposed consensus on global warming, every time the Kyoto parties get together, there are disagreement s about what to do. The latest meeting in Nairobi, Kenya, is no exception:
“A U.N. conference working to fix long-term rules to fight global warming beyond 2012 “as soon as possible” was split on Tuesday over whether that meant an accord should be struck in 2008, 2009 or even 2010.”
At the last meeting, the only thing they agreed on was to take out all the penalties for non-compliance with Kyoto. This was hailed as an â€˜historic agreement.’
CEI confidently predicts that whatever agreement they come to on when to set a deadline for further talks will also be hailed as an â€˜historic agreement.’
Meanwhile, Annex I parties will continue to emit greenhouse gases at an increasing rate.
