Wonder what you would find if you frisked the weather report at the Climate Change Summit in Copenhagen?
Answer: A lot of snow.
Hmm… How ironic:
World leaders flying into Copenhagen today to discuss a solution to global warming will first face freezing weather as a blizzard dumped 10 centimeters (4 inches) of snow on the Danish capital overnight.
Delegates from 193 countries have been in Copenhagen since Dec. 7 to discuss how to fund global greenhouse gas emission cuts. U.S. PresidentBarack Obama will arrive before the summit is scheduled to end tomorrow.
Denmark has a maritime climate and milder winters than its Scandinavian neighbors. It hasn’t had a white Christmas for 14 years, under the DMI’s definition, and only had seven last century. Temperatures today fell as low as minus 4 Celsius (25 Fahrenheit).
DMI defines a white Christmas as 90 percent of the country being covered by at least 2 centimeters of snow on the afternoon of Dec. 24.
HAHA! So while climate change scientists are trying to scare the bejesus out of everyone that our planet will be scorched to death in a matter of years, there’s a big ol’ snow storm going on outside of the conference… You have got to absolutely love this!
Good thing the Anointed One is scheduled to arrive in Copenhagen tomorrow and maybe he will put all these climate change buffoons in check, but I have my doubts:
Despite some rumors swirling in Copenhagen that the lack of progress at the ongoing climate change summit will cause President Obama to cancel his attendance tomorrow, the White House says no – the President is still committed to going.
There have been “no changes” to the President’s plans, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs told reporters this morning.
Mr. Obama is set to leave this evening for an overnight trip to Copenhagen. He’ll spend the day Friday on the ground in Demark in hopes to negotiate toward a politically non-binding agreement.
Personally, I think President Obama should listen to Sarah Palin and cancel his trip to Copenhagen. This trip could have the potential to blow up in his face (figuratively speaking) and he cannot afford that happening again:
The only time a President should travel to such a conference is if two essential elements are in place. First, the agreement should be all but finished in order to make the President look effective in completing it. Second, it should have considerable domestic support. Bill Clinton made the mistake of ignoring the second condition with Kyoto on climate change, and it ended up making him look particularly ineffective with the Senate unanimously voted to ignore the treaty rather than even consider ratifying it. If the same thing happens again to Obama for the third time in a year, he’s going to look not just ineffective but clueless as well.
The Climate Change Conference is turning out to be a disaster! Here’s some of things that have gone completely wrong so far:
- Climate Change conference president resigns
- U.S. pledges billions; China says climate pact is doubtful
- Copenhagen Riots Break Out
- Developing Nations Walk Out Of Climate Talks
Mr. President… Please just stay home, because you will save the United States some money and yourself from another political mishap.
