The Durban meeting of the UN Conference of Parties (you know, the bunch that met to the sound of trumpets in Copenhagen a couple of years ago) is concentrating the efforts of our Department of Environment and Water Affairs. Their latest concern is to find a way of extending the Kyoto Protocol, which is due to end its first Commitment Period next year.
What nonsense! The Kyoto Protocol has done NOTHING in its present guise. Carbon emissions have soared regardless of all the 'commitments' made. If you want any demonstration of why this whole carbon thing is a con, look no further. The farce should be quietly killed off in Durban. Bjorn Lomborg showed years ago that it was never going to achieve anything. It never will.
