Not cutting the mustard
So that climate extravaganza is over.
They have finally reached an agreement though apparently some aren’t happy and most seem to agree that they haven’t agreed enough or even what exactly they have all agreed on. Confused? Not half as confused as I am.
Anyhows on my morning trip around the meeja sites I see that the BBC is positively running away with itself with a massive headline proclaiming an “Historic Deal“. Funny how a lot of things are “historic” these days? I pity future kids as their history books are going to rival the old Encyclopedia Britannica in size.
Having had their main orgasm after the big headline they then have sections on “The moment the deal was struck” [where presumably you can endlessly play the moment to lull yourself to sleep], “55 Seconds” of leaders being very very excited [is that a porn film?]. They then include “A Really Simple Guide to Climate Change” for those of us who have been living under a rock for the last couple of decades and “How the deal went down” which also sounds suspiciously like a porn film.
Probably their most interesting piece is entitled “How Earth is dimming because of climate change“. Sadly the piece doesn’t tell us how, just that the New Moon isn’t as bright as it used to be, or something. They do however impart some other nuggets such as mysterious holes appearing in Siberia [maybe caused by errant Russian missiles?] and why there is a shortage of Dijon Mustard. The latter piece is of course vital information for all those mustard aficionados out there who have been tearing their hair out in anguish.
At least they’ll stop boring us rigid with their warble gloaming.
Now they’ll start boring us rigid with the World Cup.
The alleged ‘deal’ is just about bunging more guilt-money to corrupt third world crooks.
Around 8,000 years ago when Doggerland was inundated by the naturally changing level of the North Sea, its inhabitants were never compensated.
And they didn’t have the popular scapegoats of power-stations and motor-cars to blame either. Funny that.
Of course it’s all about money. Isn’t it always?
Where I live used to be under a couple of hundred feet of ice. Luckily mastodon farts were full of methane so that warmed the climate a bit to make it reasonably bearable now.
