Warning: despite their benign appearance, don't sleep on these guys

The U.N. climate change conference (ne'e global warming conference) wrapped up yesterday and which "began with modest aims and ended early Saturday with modest achievements."

Perhaps we've been looking at these climate change conferences in the wrong manner. While we see a global attempt towards a massive wealth redistribution scheme, these folks that are attending the conference are a bit more realistic and are just viewing it as some down time at a popular tourist destination before the hectic holiday season.

It has become a little dance, if you will: We get our hackles up, perspiring over economy-killing policies that have not one chance of ever being implemented and the faith-based AGW zealots convene their annual circular cocktail firing squad and prove us right by not accomplishing a single agenda item of real substance.

But just so we don't lose that fire in the belly, there always seems to be one or two utterances from the faith-based AGW zealots that reminds us of why we're all here.

“This is not the end, but it is a new beginning,” said Christiana Figueres, the Costa Rican diplomat who serves as executive secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. “It is not what is ultimately required, but it is the essential foundation on which to build greater, collective ambition.”

Because last century was nothing except a study of the somewhat ill effects of "collective ambition".

So, 2011.... Durban, South Africa. See you then?

Can you say, "We'll get em next year, team"?

A little trouble with the Cancun Global Irony Conference. Too cool for Algore. Or just an inconvienient coincidence?
