Curse Causes Climate Conference Collapse at #cop15

Gordon 'Jonah' Brown's curse has struck yet again. This time it's landed in Copenhagen.

All weekend we've been hearing noise about how Gordon's going to 'turn up first'  to the conference, ahead of all the other world leaders, like some sort of snot-nosed school swot trying to impress the teacher.

Is that because, as boy Milliband claims

"it's a sign of the seriousness with which he takes this issue" ?

Nah. Its just another piece of pathetic "saved the world" showboating from a man who knows he's got an unwinnable General Election barrelling towards him.

But as with everything Jonah touches, this little PR stunt has already gone wrong.

Before he even steps off his modest bicycle vast aeroplane, the conference has collapsed. As the BBC describes:

"Negotiations at the UN climate summit have been suspended after the African group withdrew co-operation.

African delegations were angry at what they saw as moves by the Danish host government to sideline talks on more emission cuts under the Kyoto Protocol"

So now, there'll be nothing for Gordo' to claim credit for. Nothing to save.

Just Gordon Brown, Ed Milliband, hundreds of dodgy scientists, thousands of deluded tree huggers and hundreds of greedy, compensation-seeking third-world leaders, all in the same place.

Shame the sea-levels aren't rising dramatically off Denmark, isn't it?

Mind you, with Jonah there, perhaps they will...

Oh dear, I implore the good people of Denmark to run and hide before they end up face to snout with the accursed one.

Fucking brilliant.

Is there any way we can get the Accursed One to the EU parliament? We need him to work his magic there as well.

not so fast on sea level rise , if land ice does melt on greenland ice shelf , it does go up by over 1meter (historical records do show sea level has been higher).

However rest of copenhagen is still in trouble , Hillary Benns acidification of oceans is plausible until you realise he failed to mention the other acidifcation effects from NO2 , SO2 and industrial pollution , carbonic acid (Formed when CO2 dissolves in water) is the weaker of gas dissolved acids .

i see somes one posted about foot and mouth being more manged than we realised . poster got tin foil hat treatment , Cw notes it was very close to the election .

CW, unless one of James Bond's famous baddies launches a laser beam weapon into the upper atmosphere and aim it at Greenland, the ice shelf isn't going to melt anytime soon.

Even if the seal level did rise by a metre, would we really mourn the loss of Blackpool, Ramsgate and Southend-on-Sea?
