What Happens After Kyoto?

04-12-2005 21:04

With Russian ratification of the Kyoto Protocol during 2005 attention has quickly shifted to what happens next. The Kyoto commitment period ends in 2012 and no clear plan for what follows currently exists. In this article however I am not purely looking a what happens after Kyoto in terms of an international framework, rather I am looking at the spectrum of future international measures which may be used for climate change mitigation.

Any descendant of Kyoto is likely to draw from key features of the UNFCCC, but will also have to make significant improvements. The key issues to be addressed are:

* the need to bring developing countries into the system
* the need to engage with the united states
* the need to deal with both historical responsibility and adaption
* the need to achieve far greater global emissions reductions.

The Fusion of Peak Oil & Climate Change

04-12-2005 18:48

Peak Oil and Climate Change are a bigger threat together than either are alone. Our biggest hope is to similarly converge our understanding of them, and how to deal with the problems they present. Peak Oil and Climate Change must be fused as issues – an approach is needed to deal with them as a package.

Ian Blair and free masons

04-12-2005 18:26

Ian Blair was given an award by Thames Valley University. These people are sick and it shows how sick the masonic old boys network that rules Britain beind the scenes with their secret codes. That is why crime is so high in the UK, and has increased under New Labour and Ian Blair. Tony Blair's New Labour Party want us to fear. The sick award is after the murder in cold blood of an innocent man Jean Charles de Menezes. I think people should protest at the University. Ian Blair is a liar and when he's the most senior man in charge of the British police force it shows how corrupt the UK is. Ian Blair gave the orders for a shoot to kill policy and Ian Blair lied and was involved in a cover up in the Jean Charles de Menezes case. Ian Blair is as guilty as the evil bastards who pulled the trigger 11 times to shoot Jean Charles de Menezes at point Blank. The newspapers have been saying Ian Blair welcomes an inquiry into the murder of Jean Charles de Menezes, he is trying to make himself look innocent and accountable. Ian Blair obstructed the independent IPCC investigation into the death of Jean Charles de Menezes. He is gulity like those who pulled the trigger, just as Hitler was guilty of giving order, and because of Tony Blair is so corrupt he has avoided being sacked so far. I would welcome his resignation and prosection.

Poverty not prosperity

04-12-2005 16:13

HYPE about a Sussex coastal town being "prosperous" is a complete lie.
The truth is that it is a low wage area and the only people making money are the fat cat businessmen getting rich on the underpaid local workforce.

On the climate change march yesterday, a group of intrepid marchers suddenly took it on themselves to become "sitters". They all sat down in the road, and the police were unable to stop them. Why is this peaceful tactic not being widely used and encouraged, and why has the SWP (sorry, the Stop the War Coalition) consistently failed to even come up with the idea?
