Emissions Deadline Abandoned by U.N.

For us climate deniers, it doesn't get any sweeter. Liberalism is in retreat worldwide. Yay! This comes on the heels of the admission by the U.N.'s climate chief that their recent report contains errors, and all this follows the false science revealed by Climategate.

The timetable to reach a global deal to tackle climate change lay in tatters on Wednesday after the United Nations waived the first deadline of the process laid out at last month’s fractious Copenhagen summit.

Nations agreed then to declare their emissions reduction targets by the end of this month. Developed countries would state their intended cuts by 2020: developing countries would outline how they would curb emissions growth.

But Yvo de Boer, the UN’s senior climate change official, admitted the deadline had in effect been shelved.
