Poland fires president of UN climate summit for being too green!

In a move which shows what can only be interpreted as disdain for the UN climate summit, Poland abruptly fired its environment minister who also serves as President of COP 19!

Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk removed Environment Minister Marcin Korolec even though COP 19 has only two more days to run.  That’s a blow!

What was the reason that the change couldn’t wait?  The Polish government wants a minister who will more aggressively promote development of Poland’s shale gas reserves!

Reuters reports that

The president of the talks has the power to wield the gavel, fighting off any last-minute objections and therefore forcing through some sort of agreement, he said.

But if the president does not have the authority of his government, then his power in the eyes of other countries is reduced, the representative said.

PolishflagPoland is the host country for COP 19.  With Australia blocking treasured warming-left initiatives, Russia questioning the fairness of the entire UN process and Poland scheduling a coal conference and firing its environment minister in the middle of the COP it is clear that major countries no longer feel a need to go along with the global warming agenda to get along.

With all this and a 132 nation walkout too, can COP 19 recover its momentum and keep the global warming treaty on schedule for signing in Paris in 2015?

Let’s hope not.

      A picture of harmless steam being portrayed as something else. A standard trick of warming-left propaganda. Sometimes they wait for a cloud to pass by to make the steam look dark so they can pretend it is dirty, which it is not. CO2 you may not have heard, is invisible and odorless. It’s a lot of work educating the warming crowd on science.

        Yes they have rudimental science knowledge, can’t tell water vapor from smoke..

        Craig, I think you missed the point V8 Power was making. This is a huge power plant in terms of output, but look at the minuscule footprint that it displaces in the midst of all that green. And yes, that is smoke billowing out of the stack (not the cooling towers), but since we’re in modern-day Europe it is scrubbed down to nearly pure CO2 (plant food) and water vapor. It can hardly be called smoke anymore.

        And from the tone I’d say V8 Power is damned proud of his local power supplier. Otherwise he would have chosen a photo shot at sunset–that’s when everything takes on that deathly deep brown color, and the green washes out from the trees.

        I think this picture is beautiful. But–hey–I grew up in the Ohio of the ’60’s when Industry was still seen as people working for the betterment and the development of other people. Back when producing stuff bought creature comforts and art and music and cleaned up our rivers and lakes. Don’t blink, ’cause those days are coming back fast.

          From your lips to God’s ears.

    I can’t understand, really, how the UNFCCC has any binding authority in the first place! They are unelected & unaccountable. They should just be shown the door.

      Couldn’t agree more. All they’re good for is sucking up your money and mine. Throw the bums out.
