U.N. climate conference opens Sunday in Katowice; "success will need a miracle."

GENEVA (Reuters) - Global temperatures are on course for a 3-5 degrees Celsius (5.4-9.0 degrees Fahrenheit) rise this century, far overshooting a global target of limiting the increase to 2C (3.6F) or less, the U.N. World Meteorological Organization said on Thursday.

“Greenhouse gas concentrations are once again at record levels and if the current trend continues we may see temperature increases 3-5 degrees C by the end of the century,” Secretary-General Petteri Taalas said in the WMO’s annual statement on the state of the climate.

“If we exploit all known fossil fuel resources, the temperature rise will be considerably higher.”

5. It was all theater

Getting something signed mattered more than getting something done. They're holding this meeting in Poland which makes all its electricity by burning brown coal. Irony is dead.

7. Quite a change in tone from the worldwide collective liberal orgasm from COP 15 in Copenhagen.

The socialists and globalists were riding high. Obama the savior had just been elected. He received the Nobel Prize for bringing world peace and lowering the oceans and having a sharp pants crease.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, and Reps. Markey and Henry Waxman (D-Calif.), Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Senator John Kerry (D-Mass.) all lent their collective genius to the taxpayer-funded international shopping junket.....errrrr......climate conference.

All the leftist leaders held hands and sang kumbaya. Socialism was going to save the planet. The global warming hoax was being funded at recorded levels. The leftist useful idiot masses were gulping down the global warming kool-aid. They really thought a strongly worded commie U.N. report or a litany of news articles calling anyone who disagreed a denier would change reality.

Now after decades of crying wolf, politically motivated climate change policies, hypocrisy from the global warming cult leaders, billions upon billions dollars wasted in a futile attempt to stop something that is not occurring, the public is growing weary of the histrionics and hand-wringing.

8. The next two generations are going to look at these alarmists and laugh at them

Just like we look at the ones that predicted an ice age by now and laugh.

They will marvel how a whole group of "scientists" bilked the government out of so much money and created so much fuss, all in the name of advancing socialism.

10. I know. It was a wonderful thing.

Trump pulled back the curtain on the smoke and mirrors fake agreement to further the global warming hoax that would enrich the globalist toadies.

11. You dismiss the science entirely?

You must be either an oil company exec or a fool.

12. the global warming hoax is

1% science
99% socialist ideology

There is no existential crisis. Whatever contribution man made CO2 makes to the ever changing climate is minuscule. Natural variations in climate have disrupted societies and cultures in the past. It will do so in the future too. There have always been winners and losers in this game.

The doomer apocalyptic rhetoric is a laughable attempt to scare the masses into giving over their money and control to a socialist oligarchy.
