Marathon UN climate talks have a rather disappointing outcome

Disappointment as marathon climate talks end with slim deal. AP News,  By FRANK JORDANS and ARITZ PARRA,MADRID (AP) 15 Dec 19, — Marathon U.N. climate talks ended Sunday with a slim compromise that sparked widespread disappointment, after major polluters resisted calls for ramping up efforts to keep global warming at bay and negotiators postponed debate about rules for international carbon markets for another year.

Organizers kept delegates from almost 200 nations in Madrid far beyond Friday’s scheduled close of the two-week talks. In the end, negotiators endorsed a general call for greater efforts to tackle climate change and several measures to help poor countries respond and adapt to its impacts.

U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres said he was “disappointed” by the meeting’s outcome.

“The international community lost an important opportunity to show increased ambition on mitigation, adaptation and finance to tackle the climate crisis,” he said. “We must not give up and I will not give up.”

The final declaration cited an “urgent need” to cut planet-heating greenhouse gases in line with the goals of the landmark 2015 Paris climate change accord. But it fell far short of explicitly demanding that countries submit bolder emissions proposals next year, which developing countries and environmentalists had demanded……

Thankfully, the weak rules on a market-based mechanism, promoted by Brazil and Australia, that would have undermined efforts to reduce emissions, have been shelved,” said Mohamed Adow, director of Nairobi-based campaign group Power Shift Africa.

Helen Mountford, from the environmental think-tank World Resources Institute, said that “given the high risks of loopholes discussed in Madrid, it was better to delay than accept rules that would have compromised the integrity of the Paris Agreement.”…….

Delegates made some progress on financial aid for poor countries affected by climate change, despite strong resistance from the United States to any clause holding big polluters liable for the damage caused by their emissions. Countries agreed four years ago to funnel $100 billion per year by 2020 to assist developing nations, but so far nowhere near that amount has been raised. …..

The United States will be excluded from much of those talks after President Donald Trump announced the country’s withdrawal from the Paris accord, a process than comes into force Nov. 4, 2020…….

  1. Nuclear will destroy the world before cliimate change does. Nuclear is a causative part of climate change . Nuclear is precipitating the more fulminant aspects of climate change. Climate change will set-off more nuclear disasters in the short-term from flooding, wild fires, and hurricanes.

    The northern hemisphere is flooded w radionuclides. The New, New World Order is of a decidedly fascist flavour. It is committed to nuclear power and nuclear proliferation. It now controls most of the west. Th UK, The USa Japan etc. It is making japan worst. The greed of the fascist plutocrats pushes them to leave nasty reactors open. Their greed pushes for constant building of more nuclear weapons. Of insane crackpot schemes, like nuclear weapons in space aimed at the populaces. Of tactical nuclear warfare.

    Of tens of thousands of tons of hi level waste stored ouside everwhere.

    San Onofre’s, crappy Holtec, Hi level nuke waste casks, are leaking a great deal of radionuclide into the ocean in the san diego area. Surfers and San Diego City people say they constantly have a metallic taste in their mouth and nausea, like people did after 3 mile island at fukushima and chernobyl.

    Of dangerous reactors that poop out megatons of hi level nuke waste. They always have more crackpot schemes and none of the old reactors are safe . Especialy now that most are more than 30 yo

    Thi organization has info about nuke safety

    They keep reactors opened that should have closed 20 years ago. It will precipitate multiple nuclear catastrophes soon in murica europe, japan, korea in old beat up reactors that have no supervision that are constantly flood hurricaned and some earthquaked. Most have massive overfilled and dangerous used fuel pools by them and pads of shoddy thin hulled casks. Each cask, with the equivalent high level radionuclides of 10 thousand nuclear bombs, that could easily exlode or catch fire if damaged and futher contaminate most of the world.

    Radionuclides, catalyze trillions of complex chemical reactions in the earths atmosphere. Many radionuclides like cs137, co60, st90, iridium, plutonium generate their own heat
    The nucleoape countries have dumped, a half million or more tons of high and medium level radionuclides into the arctic ocean and the other oceans, including old nuke subs and reactors and do it daily
    Plutonium , rcesium and iridium and uranium 236 are pyrophoric in trace amounts . Most radionuclides are pyrophoric especially radium and uranium. That is way uranium is used by the us military in bullets and most other munitions, because of the heat they generate on impact.
    They spontaneoulsy set off fires in already climate changed areas . 
    Radionuclie pollution helped catalyze the wildfires at old nuke shitholes, like the Idaho National Nuclear Lab Nuclear Reservation where 900, 000 acres burned. There was also Santa Susana
    Accumumulated hyrdrocarbon residues in the ground from burning hcs all these years probably helps  wildfires burn. Radioactive gasses like radon and krypton from  gasoline burning and nuclear reactors respectively, cause free radical reactions in the upper atmosphere, that deplete ozone.

    Climate change and nuclear catastrophe are accelerating now at a pace where massive cateclysm will occur sooner rather than later.
