Video from the EU Parliament debate: 'The man-made global warming hypothesis is dead in the water! It's face down!'

In video from the lively debate yesterday in the EU Parliament, UK representative Godfrey Bloom emphatically declares, "The man-made global warming hypothesis is dead in the water! It's face down! ... We know that carbon dioxide in the atmosphere always follows periods of global warming, we know that the hypothesis that man-made global warming was going to cause totally apocryphal boiling in 2015 is now complete nonsense... There has been no statistically significant global warming now for over 15 years. There isn't a single independent scientific institution which doesn't acknowledge that fact. So all this debate is a lot of nonsense because it simply isn't happening." Bloom then asks why the Climate Commissioner Connie Hedegaard is in denial over these facts. Following the debate, the EU Parliament apparently agreed with Bloom and torpedoed Europe's flagship CO2 emissions trading scheme by voting against a measure to support the price of carbon dioxide permits.

Europe and Japan are already running very carbon efficient economies.



It is US and China that needs to get their acts together.



simply put....................a 7% annual growth in carbon emission means doubling in 10 years and four times in 20 years. Definitely the end of climate as humans know it for the last 100,000 years.

it is a political failure, not a failure of climate science.

Germany has met their Kyoto commitments.

Now, it is turn of US and China to cut their emissions.........................................

Excerpt:

Telegraph, 16 April 2013
Given the manifest reluctance of the world’s big emitters to accept any legally binding carbon targets and in face of our deepening economic crisis, Europe should undertake a comprehensive review of its economically damaging carbon targets and — in the absence of an international agreement — should consider the suspension of all unilateral climate policies that threaten Europe’s economic recovery. –Benny



Peiser, National Post,  25 November 2011
“The decision means the end of a European approach to climate policy.” –Felix Matthes,

CARBON CRASH: VOTE LEAVES EU EMISSIONS TRADING IN TATTERS

Date: 17/04/13The Wall Street Journal
The European Union’s flagship program to fight global warming suffered a major blow Tuesday when lawmakers rejected a proposal aimed at shoring up the region’s carbon-emissions trading system, putting its survival in doubt. Germany’s Minister of Economic and Technology Philipp Rösler welcomed the rejection of the backloading plans as an “excellent signal” for an continuing economic recovery.
After the European Parliament’s surprise afternoon vote, spooked investors drove the price of emissions permits down by nearly half. Benchmark electricity prices also fell.
The legislature derailed—at least temporarily—a plan to push up permit prices by postponing issuance of new permits for between five and seven years. Electricity generators and others must buy the permits in order to emit carbon dioxide.
Europe’s so-called Emissions Trading System, first launched in 2008, was designed to raise the cost of polluting and discourage the production of greenhouse gases to protect the environment.
But lately, politicians’ focus on generating jobs and sparking growth in a region struggling to recover from recession is relegating green concerns to second place behind economics.
“It was a vote of reason,” said Poland’s environment minister, Marcin Korolec. Poland, one of the EU’s less-affluent members, has been outspoken in its opposition to the measure, which it said could hamper development.
The parliament’s Environment Committee after the vote said that some lawmakers felt that “a rise in the carbon price would erode the competitiveness of European industry and be passed on in household energy bills.”
Germany’s Minister of Economic and Technology Philipp Rösler welcomed the rejection of the backloading plans as an “excellent signal” for an continuing economic recovery. “Reducing supply CO2 allowances would equate to an intervention into a functioning market system,” and further burden industry, he said.
The EU’s executive arm, the European Commission, which devised the so-called backloading plan, said it regretted parliament’s move. And the EU’s Council of Environment Ministers said it would try to draw up an alternate plan.
“Today’s vote is a historic failure,” said Joris den Blanken, EU climate policy director at environmental advocacy group Greenpeace. Without action to deal with an oversupply of permits, the trading system won’t “dissuade polluters and promote investments in cleaner production.”
Slack demand for electricity and an abundance of permits in the market helped push the price of emitting a ton of carbon below 5 euros earlier this year, down from nearly €30 in 2008. After the vote, the price dropped to €2.55 before recovering partially to €3.2.
Without the backloading plan to increase scarcity on the emissions permit market, “the ETS will almost certainly collapse,” said Kash Burchett, a London-based analyst at consulting company IHS Energy.
“Prices will likely sink below €1 per ton as participants recognize that there is no political will at present to restore the market mechanism to functioning order,” he said.

sansukong,


you know what is the price of petrol in Europe vs the price in US and China?

so, dont simply open your big mouth.

this climate change can be solved. But to solve it requires unity and cooperation.

The inability to solve the problem is not a failure of science.
It is a failure of politics,
it is a human weakness.

Not a failure of science.
