    US climate objections sink Arctic Council accord

    US objections to wording on climate change prevented Arctic nations signing a joint statement at a summit in Finland, delegates said.

    It is the first time such a statement has been cancelled since the Arctic Council was set up in 1996.

    A Finnish delegate, Timo Koivurova, said "the others felt they could not water down climate change sentences".

    There is international concern that Arctic temperatures are rising twice as fast as in the rest of the world.

    On Monday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo addressed the forum in Rovaniemi, northern Finland, with a speech welcoming the melting of Arctic sea ice, rather than expressing alarm about it.

    "Steady reductions in sea ice are opening new passageways and new opportunities for trade," he said. "This could potentially slash the time it takes to travel between Asia and the West by as much as 20 days."

    Good Lord. You need to get these idiots out.

    Arctic sea ice is melting because it's supposed to and Marxist wealth redistribution isn't going to stop it from happening.

    Did anyone see the desperation of the UN in their latest "the world will end if something doesnt get done" episode where they whined that 1000's of species "could" go extinct? The UN lost a lot of money since President Trump took over, and now those despots are begging for any money to keep their sorry asses propped up. As we heard many times before, with the melting of the ice caps and traveling across the oceans ice free, whenever they start their journey they always seem to get stuck in an Iceflow.

    Did you bother to read the link, Tommy?

    There are gaping holes in the Arctic climate change claims because you are too ignorant to even know what they are. BBC news hopes you didn't notice what they are since that is how they get away with their misleading crap.

    Example: the Polar Bears are in danger because of less Summer ice, yet Polar Bears gets most of their food for the year in the Springtime to very early summer, while their population has increased greatly since 2005. Thus despite a significant reduction in Summer ice pack, Polar Bears are thriving, getting enough food when it really matters.

    What is the OP talking about?:wtf:

    These climate accords are symbolic only. Doy....they always fall faaaaaaar short of stated objectives. This is US spending to the tune of tens of billions! For what exactly? I'll tell you....for dick.

    As usual, Tommy tends to the hysterical on most everything. Like most progressives....if the intentions are good, spend, spend. Ghey

    Nobody cares about this!:bye1:
