Cop26 deal falters as U.S. and Australia hint at no new targets next year

Key clause in Glasgow Climate Pact asks countries to set out updated plans to cut emissions between now and 2030 by end of 2022 

In the bizarre world of climate politics, we are to believe that:
• carbon emissions are solely responsible for the earth’s temperature; and
• that limiting warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius will halt future climate changes.

Both hypotheses lack credibility. We have no hard evidence that the earth’s temperatures are rapidly increasing or that carbon emissions are the only factor affecting our climate.

The sun is the sole energy source that warms the earth. Our atmosphere is our sunscreen. Without it, we would perish from radiation. Nitrogen makes up 78% of our  atmosphere, Oxygen 20-21%, Argon 0.93%, Carbon Dioxide 0.036% and Methane 0.00005%.

Our government has announced it will reduce methane emissions to combat climate change despite methane being a minuscule part of the atmosphere. That speaks to the irrelevancy of the IPCC, COP26 and our federal government.

It seems that PM Trudeau fancies himself as a knight in shining armour leading a world crusade to vanquish imaginary climate dragons.

The Cop26 deal faltered within 48 hours as the US and Australia, two of the world’s largest emitters, suggested they would not set new climate targets next year, reports the UK Telegraph.
