Cancun Temperatures Drop to a 100-Year Low as World Negotiators Meet to Discuss Global Warming
As leaders from nearly 200 countries met in Cancun for the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change: Conference of the Parties 16 to negotiate ways to save the planet from global warming, the "Gore Effect" hit again as Cancun saw temperatures drop to a 100-year record low. Last year at the Copenhagen climate conference, a blizzard dumped snow on the attendees as they arrived to discuss global warming, giving Copenhagen its first white Christmas in 14 years.
As if ClimateGate wasn’t bad enough, the climate politicos in Cancun are amidst record cold temperatures. The Gore Effect, of course, is the inconvenient coincidence that when Al Gore attends a conference to give a climate speech, cold spells and freak snow storms attend. He is not even there this time.
Global temperatures seem to have flatlined over the past decade, despite increases in Co2. The Cancun conference has little hope of changing the political climate, which is decidedly chilling against the concept of hampering economic growth to limit Co2 emissions. Instead it seems to be devolving into demands by the third-world for “climate justice” – meaning transfer payments from the developed world
