“For the third year in a row the (member)
countries have found a new way to say absolutely nothing,” asserted
Oxfam director Winnie Byanyima, as the U.N.’s annual climate change
conference limped inconsequentially to its end on Saturday in
Warsaw. The 19th Conference of the Parties (COP-19) to
the U.N. Framework Convention of Climate Change (UNFCCC) was
supposed to set out a roadmap toward completing a global treaty
that would bind all countries to some kind of commitments to reduce
their greenhouse gas emissions after 2020 at the Paris COP-21 in
2015. No commitments were made and no clear roadmap was adopted at
the Warsaw talks. Reason Science Correspondent Ronald
Bailey looks forward to achieving similar results when the U.N.
climate change conference convenes next year in Lima, Peru.
