Unexpected admission from the OECD

September 18, 2009

ClimateWire reports that a new paper by economists at the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) says that:

… if OECD countries acted alone on climate, containing global temperature rise below 2 degrees Celsius above preindustrial levels — the benchmark expected in Copenhagen — would be impossible.

So even if you believe in the global warming alarmist fairy tale, since India and China have vowed not to cut emissions at the expense of growth, nothing will be achieved by the developed world committing economic hara-kiri over CO2.

    There is an informal de facto conspiracy among those of the authoritarian bent to acquire and preserve their personal power. They are united only by their mutual understanding of that common purpose and the means necessary to accomplish it. That is to monopolize resources, enabling themselves and disabling their opponents. This unity of purpose applies to all policies: environmental, economic, energy, health care, etc. The inevitable crisis will come when they start competing with each other.
