COP 25 was an utter failure for the United Nations.
Despite extending the conference into double overtime making it the longest COP ever, the UN was forced to adjourn without advancing the "rule book" for the Paris Climate Accord, or agreeing on a framework for an international carbon market.
UN Secretary General (and former President of the Socialist International) António Guterres was “disappointed” and stated that “the international community lost an important opportunity to show increased ambition on mitigation, adaptation & finance to tackle the climate crisis.”
The UN did at least agree on a "gender action plan." So there's that. They agreed to "strengthen the integration of gender considerations within the work of the UNFCCC constituted bodies, the secretariat of the United Nations and stakeholders towards the consistent implementation of gender-related mandates and activities." You can read the entire UN gender agreement at CFACT.org if you're interested in more of the same.
To sum up: The UN agreed to mention gender more often, spend more to transport women to future COPs, set aside places for women in meetings, and consider wasteful useless programs.
World ending, women hardest hit, token spending and programming -- WE'RE SAVED!
The big COP breakdown was over something called "Article 6" which deals with international carbon markets. Australia refused to give up past carbon credits and was joined by Brazil which shut the whole thing down. Good on ya, mates! Obrigado!
Check out Rupert Darwall's excellent analysis on why carbon markets are a useless charade at CFACT.org.
They also failed to increase national commitments to emissions reductions and sidestepped the issues of whether prosperous nations should reimburse poor countries for their "loss and damage" from bad weather. This despite warming pressure groups co-opting Greta Thunberg and "the children" to chant about loss and damage in the halls.
China emits more CO2 than the U.S. and E.U. combined! Taking the world's number one and number three emitters out of the mix effectively renders anything the UN does under the Paris Accord meaningless in terms of altering world temperature (if climate models suddenly become accurate which they never have been).
That's why President Trump described the Paris Climate Accord as a "terrible, one-sided" deal for America.
He was right.
For nature and people too,
That's too bad. (sarcasm)
This Alexandria Villasenor might be the replacement for the Greta.
And then here is a Climate Realist who was indoctrinated by Climate Alarmism.
