Der Spiegel: No Deal – Durban Sinks Into Chaos (It’s Over!)

P Gosseling at the NoTricksZone writes from Germany:
We’re hearing about clandestine evil deals being made in Durban and that the UN may indeed emerge as the global Führer soon. Rubbish!
Der Spiegel reports here that Durban threatens to sink into chaos.
According to Der Spiegel, a new paper had been drafted overnight and included things like “warming will be limited to 2°C, even 1.5°C” and that “by 2050 greenhouse gas emissions will be cut back 50 to 85 percent compared to 1990″ and that developing countries “will be obligated to cut back projected emissions growth by 2020 by 15 to 30 percent”.
Rumours are out claiming they’re closing in on a deal and that our liberty is about to end. But fear not. Der Spiegel, who have well-embedded reporters in Durban, writes:
In any case, a deal will not happen. In paragraph 47 of the paper, which looks at financial aid for developing countries, it is stated: The payments will be ‘equal to the budget that the industrial country has for defence, security and war.’”
We all know that Europe does very little in defense and military. That would mean the US would have to pay just about everything. If Obama accepted this, it would be a Jonestown-scale political suicide by the US Democratic Party. Even the biggest leftists in the US could hardly fantasize such a massive transfer of wealth by a single country. The condition is a set-up to force the USA to reject it – and thus take the blame again.
Read the rest HERE. I am not as confident as P. Gosslin that our lefty President would not sign up the this UN Junk Agreement, but it is the Senate that would have to agree it it were a treaty and that is a dead issue. We do not have the money to pay our debts, let alone give the UN a shadow payment for the cost of any war. As the text said, this was all an attempt create a condition the US could not sign, thus it is the US’s fault for the Durban failure.
