P*ss off says China

We have yet another climate fudge where a sensible leader manages to tell a silly leader to p*ss off without the BBC noticing.

China and the US have unveiled new pledges on greenhouse gas emissions, as the leaders of the two countries met for talks in Beijing.

US President Barack Obama said the move was "historic", as he set a new goal of reducing US levels between 26%-28% by 2025, compared with 2005 levels.

China did not set a specific target, but said emissions would peak by 2030.

Wednesday's pledge is the first time it has agreed to set a ceiling, albeit an undefined one, on overall emissions.

An undefined ceiling eh? Hmm... let's see... is that similar to no ceiling?

I think it is.

heheh, excellent spot.

One day we'll look back on this and laugh, like the way that we now look back at the witch hunts or the Church denying that Earth goes round the sun etc.

Mark - I hope we're here to see it. If we get the slightest hint of more warming the lying machine will be cranked up again.

So predictable, isn't it? And how much does that board and lodging cost?

James - a huge amount with his vast entourage.
