No Emissions Goal At Major Economics Meeting

meeting.jpgNo fixed targets were set at the two-day Major Economies Meetings in Paris which brought together delegates from 16 countries that produce about 80 percent of the world’s carbon emissions, AP reports. The meetings were “dominated” by debate over how much to cut GHG emissions.

Bush’s speech on emissions that was made last week was a topic of conversation. “The president gave a disappointing speech,” German Environment Minister Sigmar Gabriel said in a statement issued in Berlin headlined “Gabriel criticizes Bush’s Neanderthal speech. Losership, not Leadership,” Reuters reports.

A South African participant said unchecked global warming would cost the world $200 billion a year to overcome.

The meetings were launched last year by the U.S.

  1. I found the presidents speech too little, too late, and quite laughable. I wrote my “senior” thesis paper at UCF on The Economics of Global Warming; advocating that the government subsidize clean energy in much the same fashion that European countries have done. The Europeans countries have shown us true leadership; Bush is truly a loser; borderline criminal! I advocated that the president do much more to curb emissions and even became very upset at the obvious conflict of interest; it seems all to likely that someone who wants to profit from destroying the earth’s climate would do absolutely nothing except cloud the issue and create doubt that Climate Change is really even real. No wonder so many people in America are confused. We have become a step closer to communism with Bush in office!
