    Figure this out...:cuckoo:

    1. The Parties underline that climate change is one of the greatest challenges of our time. The Parties emphasise their strong political will to combat climate change in accordance with the principle of common but differentiated responsibilities and respective capabilities. Recognizing the scientific view that the increase in global temperature ought not to exceed 2 degrees and on the basis of equity and in the context of sustainable development, the Parties commit to a vigorous response through immediate and enhanced national action on mitigation based on strengthened international cooperation.

    There's more...:lol:...(analysis is funny)

    The Reference Frame: A leaked Copenhagen final statement

    Sample of Analysis

    We are as important as little retarded kids who underline a picture of a purple cow, claiming that this is its typical color. Fortunately, we had no will to agree on anything, but we still want to look as caring politicians with a strong will and intense politically correct vocabulary.

    Science indisputably shows that the temperatures in the past have been changing by much more than by 2 °C and they will continue to do so in the future, without adverse affects on life, and whether or not humans will contribute a small part of it or not. But we're so powerful that if we say otherwise and claim it is science, almost no one will dare to point out that we are crackpots.

    Also, science only studies how things work - and not how they "ought to" work which is always a moral or political question. But if we even say that science says that we "ought to" keep temperature in certain interval, we surely sound smarter (at least in the eyes of the stupid people) and imbeciles like us simply love to look smarter.

    Looks like the Republicans are on the wrong side of history again. 193 Nations agree that climate change is a global problem while the best argument the Republicans have is:

    Climate change :cuckoo:

    Always good to get a Republican Position

    Yet in the end, nearly all 193 nations at the U.N. climate conference agreed to President Barack Obama's solution, which points toward deeper emissions cuts for rich nations but without mandatory targets that would draw sanctions.

    Obama's successful 11th-hour bargaining Friday with China, India, Brazil and South Africa— the world's key developing nations — sets the stage for future cooperation between developed and developing nations. But the resulting "Copenhagen Accord" was protested by several nations that demanded deeper emissions cuts by the industrialized world and felt excluded from the major-nation bargaining process

    Obama upended his schedule Friday to reach the deal, turning a 9-hour trip to Copenhagen into a 15-hour negotiating whirlwind. Besides critical meetings with the leaders of the developing world, Obama and U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton held talks with European leaders, including Merkel, Britain's Gordon Brown and French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

    Are you talking about the (non-binding) "Copenhagen Accord" there big fella....:eusa_whistle:

    Did you bother to go to the link site... come on it was funny...

    The American taxpayers paid a minimum 10 million so Obama et all could help pollute the environment and get a non-binding accord and probably a bill for 100 billion a year, if Hillary was correct...:clap2:...in a blizzard.

    So lets see where we are..

    Does the Copenhagen accord solve worldwide climate change? No
    Does it provide an essential step forward? Yes

    So lets check the score again

    Republicans reject Kyoto accord: Three steps backward
    Obama forges Copenhagen agreement: Two steps forward

    We are gradually reversing the damage done by Cheney/Bush. We have a long way to go, but are making progress
