Warsaw Climate Conference has been a fault. But nobody surprise of it, every year there is Climate Conference and the result is equal: good words and nothing more. In Doha conference was even ridiculous, because how they want to speak about CO2 reduction in home of great world producer of Oil? One sign of their redundancy is the very poor coverage by the press, we could name it as the “hidden conference”; people can say more or less what Kyoto Protocol is, but asking the signatories they can’t say what about the current commitments.
Obviously specialized press has echoed of event. They showed to word the desperation of scientific world, the cynicism of skeptics and paralyze of politics. Fiona Harvey talks in “As the Warsaw climate talks end, the hard work is just beginning” about work that countries have in home to prepare the 2015 conference. I haven’t any doubt of countries will but the reductions of 2015 had been to apply today; in fact CO2 has increased rather than reduced. Today we are in front of a new point of start but as the precedents nothing begins to walk.
In background of this heap of nonsense that has become the climate problem, there is a point of no return. Even we will stop to emit CO2 it will remain in atmosphere, warning will not stop and CO2 will grow equal due of feedback. Climate Change is inevitable. The real action to do is to prepare the dramatic change and to make palliative actions, as CO2 reduction, to mitigate the final impact. But economic powers see in these possible actions something that can reduce the profit in business, and they are systematic opposing to them.
Government’s actions are stopping in part of economic power pressure but in other part for scientific uncertainty. Science have consensus about climate change but they haven’t a path that climate could take really. And how can politicians explain to population the reduction of fuel consumption or increasing energy prices, in the context of crisis. So politicians take the solution of forward scape. They continue applying the same solution from XIX century: growing until the end. When demand of raw materials is downing due the crisis, we are increase the extraction of them; today after the explosion of financial bubble there are a new bubble waiting it turn: the Oil Bubble. The Oil reserves grown but extract doesn’t reduce and we must add Fracking.
Trying to understand the situation there is only one explication of this aberrant policy. They know that climate fate is done, and in front of this they think that all was unless. Yes it’s a fatalist view but realistic. Powerful and politics don’t want expend any dollar or euro in climate. Today they are taking positions from a new world that will come, or they are arming with the next fight that every people must fight. Fight in the literal sense, when resources don’t arrive of everybody the excluded people fight against those who have the resources. Climate day by day will toughen the economic situation; infrastructures, trade and agriculture are very weak front it; and war is inevitable immersed in a crisis with masses of people lost economically. Today we are living in a global predation orgy of natural resources without logical, if we think in term of after survive. Their greed is easy to understand, they have a privileged situation and they don’t want lose it; and in other hand they can use this privileged position to take advantage from the other people. But this attitude is only sign of their lack of perspective on reality.It’s true the Early Middle Ages the lords had been mainly roman rich families, but majority of roman rich families disappeared in transit and there was lords (high lords precisely) becoming of Germanic families; this proves that to be rich isn’t guaranty of nothing in turbulent time.
Politicians and powerful have left the people to their fate. This isn’t strange, rats are always the firsts to abandon chip. But they aren’t aware of disaster will fall upon us. While they continue postponing important decisions, doing conferences and destroying every millimeter of planet.
