China promises to keep increasing their CO2 emissions for the next 15 years, while calling the massive increase a “carbon intensity reduction”
Beijing: China, the world’s biggest emitter of greenhouse gases, has submitted a new carbon intensity reduction target to the United Nations while reaffirming its goal to curb carbon emissions by 2030, or “even earlier”.
Premier Li Keqiang made the announcement while during a visit to Paris, where the global climate conference will take place at the end of the year.
“China’s carbon dioxide emissions will peak by around 2030 and China will work hard to achieve the target at an even earlier date,” Mr Li said in a statement after meeting with French President Francois Hollande.

In other words, when they complete all their new coal plants around the year 2030, then they won’t have to build any more. China understands that western governments and press are mentally defective, and will believe anything they are told.
Bill Gates points out that wide scale wind and solar energy are a farce, and that people who claim it isn’t have no idea what they are talking about.
Retired software kingpin and richest man in the world Bill Gates says today’s renewable-energy technologies aren’t a viable solution for reducing CO2 levels, and governments should divert green subsidies into R&D aimed at better answers.
Gates expressed his views in an interview given to the Financial Times yesterday, saying that the cost of using current renewables such as solar panels and windfarms to produce all or most power would be “beyond astronomical”. At present very little power comes from renewables: in the UK just 5.2 per cent, the majority of which is dubiously-green biofuel burning1 rather than renewable ‘leccy – and even so, energy bills have surged and will surge further as a result.
In Bill Gates’ view, the answer is for governments to divert the massive sums of money which are currently funnelled to renewables owners to R&D instead. This would offer a chance of developing low-carbon technologies which actually can keep the lights on in the real world.
“The only way you can get to the very positive scenario is by great innovation,” he told the pink ‘un. “Innovation really does bend the curve.”
Gates says he’ll personally put his money where his mouth is. He’s apparently invested $1bn of his own cash in low-carbon energy R&D already, and “over the next five years, there’s a good chance that will double,” he said.
The ex-software overlord stated that the Guardian‘s scheme of everyone refusing to invest in oil and gas companies would have “little impact”. He also poured scorn on another notion oft-touted as a way of making renewable energy more feasible, that of using batteries to store intermittent supplies from solar or wind.
“There’s no battery technology that’s even close to allowing us to take all of our energy from renewables,” he said, pointing out – as we’ve noted on these pages before – that it’s necessary “to deal not only with the 24-hour cycle but also with long periods of time where it’s cloudy and you don’t have sun or you don’t have wind.”

At current rates of ice loss, the Arctic will be ice-free by July 1 – Just as Al Gore and Peter Wadhams predicted

Supposedly St. Francis of Assisi had a terrible illness, and emerged with a vision to end his life of debauchery, and take care of lepers.
Similarly, I have been suffering from the flu from hell for the past week and have had an epiphany to stop global warming. Here is my prayer to Gaia
Gaia, chief bitch of the universe
Help me to end imaginary global warming, imaginary acceleration in ice loss, imaginary acceleration in sea level rise, imaginary increases in heat waves, imaginary increases in extreme weather, imaginary increases in drought, and most importantly – tell big tobacco to pay up or else
And grant me the serenity to accept the fact that our government is a bunch of idiots and crooks.
– PS tell big oil to pay up too
Climate morons believe that glaciers calving are an indication of “climate change”
Glaciers are rivers of ice that flow towards the sea. Snow falls in the interior, and eventually finds its way to the ocean via gravity. All of the snow that falls, has to return to the sea. In the case of Greenland, that is 500 billion tons of ice per year.
Their logic is as intelligent as saying all the water flowing out the mouth of the Mississippi is an indication of drought. Complete imbeciles.
