It would seem the entertainment consists of hurling insults at one another.

Much more interesting that discussing possible future pathways.

Bartlett thought humanity’s biggest failure was not understanding the logarithmic function.

I think it’s our inability to let the past go (Balkanization) and turn to the future where we have the ability to do something positive.

What and when are the next round of climate negotiations?

Funny how these discussions here at our resort among our guests when they rarely do happen are always civil.

If anyone comes to this site for much of anything beyond entertainment then one must then reflect on the social dificiencies one is sufferin in their organic social life that they come expecting something more.

The UNFCCC continues to hold meetings, with the next one scheduled for Bonn, Germany in 2019. I'm not sure what the focus of this upcoming meeting will be.

There isn't much for them to do now that they are locked into the Paris Accords except watch global CO2 emissions continue to rise and wait for global temperatures to exceed the limit of 2°C agreed upon in Paris in 2015.

Arctic pact scuttled by USA.

The United States has refused to sign an agreement on challenges in the Arctic due to discrepancies over climate change wording, diplomats said on Tuesday, jeopardizing cooperation in the polar region at the sharp edge of global warming.

With Arctic temperatures rising at twice the rate of the rest of the globe, the melting ice is creating potential new shipping lanes and has opened much of the world’s last untapped reserves of oil and gas to commercial exploitation .

A meeting of eight nations bordering the Arctic in Rovaniemi in Finland on Tuesday was supposed to frame a two-year agenda to balance the challenge of global warming with sustainable development of mineral wealth.

No not “Thanks Trump.”

He has given you the gift of being a convenient person to blame. Precious little has been done during Democratic Presidencies.

If you don’t like what he does then ask yourself what POSITIVE CONCRETE steps you have done to forward your position. Which of the 21 (22?) prospective Democrat candidates has a cohesive and intelligent suggested platform for dealing with Climate Change? (None) Writing letters bitching to congressmen doesn’t count, that’s just being a bitch.

The world now subsidizes fossil fuels by $5.7 trillion dollars, according to the latest estimates published by the IMF. The biggest contributors are:
China—$1.4T
U.S.—$649B
Russia—$551B
EU—$239 billion
India—$209 billion


Here's the download link: imf.org/~/media/Files/… 1/

[ https://t.co/kHvJzD8I7q ]

https://twitter.com/tsrandall/status/11 ... 3835696128

- Since the language of the Paris Climate Accord was adopted, subsidies of fossil fuels have actually increased—by 11%.

Coal and oil accounted for 85% of the global $5.7 trillion subsidy bill. Renewable power, which isn’t included, gets just $140B. 2/


- The $5.7 trillion fossil fuel subsidy figure includes externalities that aren’t included in the price of fuel: environmental destruction, human illness from pollution, etc. Direct subsidies (pre-tax) are much narrower: $296 billion in 2017. 3/ pic.twitter.com/Y8Ny91XM6f
- The dip in direct fossil-fuel subsidies shown above is primarily a reflection of cheaper prices. Higher prices will bring back subsidies. There's also been subsidy reform in a few oil-producing nations (e.g. gasoline in Saudi Arabia now costs $2/gallon instead of $0.61) 4/
- An interesting note on externalities: It’s not just global warming. For coal, 69% of the cost society bears is from local pollution and the sickness that comes with it. For oil, 38% is local pollution and 36% is auto congestion/crashes 5/
