The United Nations Climate Change Conference is taking place in Cancun, Mexico, from 29 November to 10 December 2010. It encompasses the sixteenth Conference of the Parties (COP) and the sixth Conference of the Parties serving as the Meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol (CMP), as well as the thirty-third sessions of both the Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI) and the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA), and the fifteenth session of the AWG-KP and thirteenth session of the AWG-LCA.
Yay! A conference! Nothing says "we're serious!" like a conference, especially one with LOAs (lots of acronyms).
From the unfccc.int website under the heading of Essential Background:
The Convention and the Protocol
Over a decade ago, most countries joined an international treaty -- the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) -- to begin to consider what can be done to reduce global warming and to cope with whatever temperature increases are inevitable.
Once these serious people are finished beginning to consider what might be done reduce global warming, at least using their definition of More CO2 = Increasing Global Warming, maybe they'll stop hosting these mega-galas in exotic locales inviting thousands of people.
Yeah, right. As Instapundit says, "I'll believe it's a crisis when the people who keep telling me it's a crisis start acting like it's a crisis."
Anyway, until that point (and I am not holding my breath) let's go to the Cancun
weather report Climate Change Forecast for the duration of the conference:
The temperature will be significantly below average during this conference.
OMG! Does that prove once and for all that Global Warming is a hoax?
Of course not.
It's just further evidence that Gaia is funnier than these people are serious.
