Obama Mania Enlivens the COP Corps

It’s 9:18 p.m. Friday night and there’s nothing happening COP15.

The rumours - which have been resolutely negative - have ground to a halt. But when U.S. President Barack Obama is seen moving, reporters run, cameras click and an excited optimism sweeps over the place.

One such reported sighting resulted in a stampede into the press conference room, an event followed shortly after by an announcement from a UNFCCC media official assuring us that there would be NO press conference any time soon.

Twenty minutes later, Obama walked by again, and the press corps returned to the room in force. Still no president. Now, between two and three hundred reporters, photographers and camera operators are loitering about, hoping that someone, anyone - but most especially President Barack Obama - might sweep in, grab a microphone and give us an update.

Keep you posted.

Obama has given his speech. And like most AGW advocates, it contained lots of platitudes but no commitments.

He flew on Air Force One to tell the world this?

“Barack Obama’s speech disappoints” http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2009/dec/18/obama-speech-copenhagen

Best line from Obama’s speech:

“The time for talk is over.”

Ha. As he offers no binding commitment of any kind except a few token dollars for the developing world.

I’ll give it to the NY Times, they know how to spin a message.

LOL.

According to the guardian article, some of the green groups are really disappointed in the speech.

He says that the US will act, whatever that means.

and what’s the point in even talking about keeping temperature rise to 2 C?
That’s totally meaningless for any individual nation. What do they have to do? What is their part in the effort?

Here’s a a suggestion for a solid goal. Pick an acceptable number of per capita CO2 emmisions for everybody.

5 metric tons per person? 3? 1? whatever

Then explain how and when you get there.

No, that would be too hard. In other words it isn’t important enough to do.

Copenhagen has been an absolute bust.

Since Obama was never going to commit to a definable target, I don’t see why he even bothered showing up. In the end, he promised no more then Harper did.

According to the guardian

news

article, some of the blooming groups are absolutely aghast in the speech.

He says that the US will act, whatever that means.

and what’s the point in even talking about befitting temperature acceleration to 2 C?

That’s absolutely absurd for any alone nation. What do they accept to do? What is their allotment in the effort?

Here’s a a advancement for a solid goal. Pick an adequate amount of per capita CO2 emmisions for everybody.

5 metric bags per person? 3? 1? whatever

Then explain how and if you get there.

No, that would be too hard. In added words it isn’t important abundant to do.

Obama takes a shot at China but forgot to blame Canada? Seems he doesn’t read desmog.

it will be a landslide win for obama in nov, the country is sick of the criminal, and incompetent republicans. http://www.goarticles.com/cgi-bin/showa.cgi?C=2281001

The senate will go under Republican control, and the Climategate issue will be used to reinforce the opinion that Democrats cannot be trusted with full house control.

I used to laugh at R Limbaugh, but he nailed it on Climategate. The MSM totally blew it, and even the red neck Democras understand that.

The media and public relations “elite” are seen for what they are..

Let’s hope you don’t have to wait too long, buddy ;)

There’s more detail about that story in the Inner Game Forums

This guy has been a president for just a few months and he is already annoying reporters, it seems.
