COP15 Opening Press Conference

COP 15 President Connie Hedegaard and UNFCCC Executive Secretary Yvo de Boer held a joint press conference on the opening day of the meeting.

Hedegaard spoke of an unprecedented political will to reach an agreement. With 110 Heads of State confirmed as attending the conference, she said there is a huge pressure on everyone to deliver not just a deal, but an ambitious deal in Copenhagen.

She emphasized the urgent need for such a deal to be reached here in Copenhagen, saying that we cannot send 110 Heads of State home to tell their populations that we couldn’t make it.

Yvo de Boer stated that countries in the conference room this morning made clear their desire to deliver a strong and ambitious outcome in Copenhagen. I believe the conference will write history, but we must make sure it writes the right history, he said.

He underlined the need for ambitious commitments to cut and limit emissions, for immediate funding and for prompt action on the ground.

  1. ‘Unprecedented political will’? What does that mean? Is anybody listening to the news about the information recently leaked from the CRU in Great Britain? Shouldn’t the World’s leaders be saying we need to get to the bottom of this BEFORE we obligate the United States to trillions of dollars in new taxes? Of course not! They have their hands in our pocket and the ‘political will’ is to let them take our money. Hey, why not? If the World is about to take trillions of dollars from us and our leaders and citizens are going to let them do it, who would pass up that opportunity? The ‘progressive’ left has been indoctrinating us about global warming/climate change and ‘save-the-Earth’ for 2 or 3 generations now. It is a route to a one-World Government and redistribution of wealth. Why aren’t people smart enough to be able to take a step back and realize what has been done to them and to their decision-making capacity? Uninformed people let emotion trump objectivity every time and the liberal elite know that and they are counting on it! They found a way to program everyone that was ‘acceptable’ and ‘under-the-radar’ by focusing on ‘Earth Day’ and ‘Environmentalism’. They started with the Preschoolers who are now voting adults and it worked!
