They Lie About Almost Everything Now

BANGKOK, Thailand, April 6, 2011 (ENS) – The first round of UN climate change talks since the Cancun summit in December is underway in Bangkok this week.
Negotiators from 173 governments are supposed to build on the Cancun agreements and work towards establishing a new global climate change regime, to extend or replace the Kyoto Protocol, when its first commitment period expires at the end of 2012.

The talks are taking place as unprecedented heavy flooding in southern Thailand has claimed the lives of more than 50 people.

The floods were likely caused by climate change, Thailand’s deputy chief negotiator for the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change said as talks opened on Sunday.

The 1978 flood destroyed 550,000 homes in Thailand.

    Thailand….. why in Thailand? Easier to sin there? I don’t see any of these taking place in Billings, Montana.

    Is this the meeting where they decide the color of the napkins and the size of the water glasses? I think the next one is where they are required to select the lunch menu.

    • Mike Davis says:

      I understand they need to decide on the exact length of a 15 minute break. Will they use standard time or metric.

    Lets us hope the Japanese don’t roll up, then a ‘new’ or renewal of the Kyoto treaty will be shafted.


    The Chinese have damned the upper reaches of the Mekong, it’s a piddling rivulet these days – arguments rage about who is to blame.
