UN climate talks open in Qatar

DOHA, Qatar (AP)- U.N. talks on a new climate pact resumed Monday in oil and gas-rich Qatar, where negotiators from nearly 200 countries will discuss fighting global warming and helping poor nations adapt to it.

The two-decade-old talks have not fulfilled their main purpose: reducing the greenhouse gas emissions that scientists say are warming the planet.

Attempts to create a new climate treaty failed in Copenhagen three years ago but countries agreed last year to try again, giving themselves a deadline of 2015 to adopt a new treaty.

Several issues need to be resolved by then, including how to spread the burden of emissions cuts between rich and poor countries. That's unlikely to be decided in the Qatari capital of Doha, where negotiators will focus on extending the Kyoto Protocol, an emissions deal for industrialized countries, and trying to raise billions of dollars to help developing countries adapt to a shifting climate.

Obama is going to let a bunch of 3rd world countries tell us how to live our lives? And then he will want to bow and pay them off. Life in Obamaland is such a joy.

Science. Bah humbug. Yes, I know that the vast majoriy of clmate researchers all agree that global warming is occurring and that man is contributing to it, but I don't care. I believe every conspiracy theory that comes along.

Algore is not a scientist. He is a dyed in the wool capitalist who uses more energy in his array of homes that most small towns. He is a liar and a hypocrite.

Good thing Algore is not one of those "evil" rich people, huh? He just uses way more energy that most people with his homes, SUV's, private jets, excessive staff,$8.8 million dollar seaside home, etc. And he offsets that by paying a bunch of peons in South America to plant trees and purchasing "carbon credits"? So it's OK to pollute and produce green house gases as long as you pay up? Hypocrites!

Did he receive that award from the same group that gave Obama his transparency award? Gore's house is 4x the size of the average house in Nashville, TN, but used 12x the amount of energy. He didn't make any changes until his hypocrisy was exposed in 2007.

Let's not forget the Nobel prize. Not Algore's, but BHO's. You know, the one for peace given to the guy who was going to end conflict in the middle east and close down Guantanamo? Sensing a credibility issue with the Nobel committee here?
