He asks Dickon Pinner, a partner with McKinsey and Marc Stuart and founder of Ecosecurities, whether the recent climate conference in Copenhagen produced any meaningful policy or regulations.
Was the Copenhagen Climate Conference a failure?

a great joke. I am still laughing today. They fabricated data to support man/bear/pig in the 20th century, but chose to ignore 200,000 years of data that says the world has gone through several cycles of hot and cold weather in recent history. The global temperatures we have now are almost 10 degrees below what they were during the Medieval Warming Period (800 ad to 1300 ad). Where were the factories, planes or cars to warm the earth then? What warmed the planet then when the global population was a tiny percentage of what it is today? By ignoring the past we miss the chance to see the real causes of global warming are out of our hands. Mother Nature rules?
It was all hot air using bogus information passed off as "scientific." It appears to be more geared toward a power grab. I think I'll buy a bigger car next time; the plants need more CO2 to prosper.
iT IS DEFINITELY A FAILURE BECAUSE THE SO CALLED DEVELOPED COUNTRIES FAILED TO TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THE POPULATION OF EACH INDIVIDUAL NATIONS. SO, ALTHOUGH EACH AMERICAN CONTRIBUTED 4 TIMES AS MUCH OF GREEN HOUSE GAS AS ONE CHINESE CHINA WAS UNFAIRLY BRANDED AS THE BIGGEST POLUTER. WHY IS IT THAT DEVELOPED COUNTRIES' CITIZEN CAN CONTRIBUTE MORE GREEN HOUSE GAS THAN CITIZENS FROM OTHER COUNTRIES. THE ONLY FAIR WAY TO COUNT GREN HOUSE GAS FROM EACH COUNTRY IS BE PER CAPITA.
