Delusional Barroso thinks "global deal possible in 2009"

EU Commission chief Jose Manuel Barroso has plenty of problems in his own backyard with many EU countries understandably reluctant to cripple their economies with emissions reductions which will make virtually no difference to the climate (even if CO2 drives temperature). Add to that the problems of India and China (both of which have indicated that they put other things, like reducing poverty and increasing standards of living and health, ahead of nebulous climate change), and indeed the US, and he is clearly delusional if he believes a global deal possible in 2009.

The Age reports:
A crucial global pact on climate change is possible by next year, European Commission chief Jose Manuel Barroso said in Beijing following two days of talks between Asian and European leaders.

Speaking after two days of ASEM talks in Beijing that were dominated by the global economic turmoil, Barroso urged the world not to neglect the issue of climate change.

"The financial crisis is not a reason and it should not be a pretext to postpone our commitment to the fight against climate change," he said.

"Because we have a financial crisis does not mean that climate change disappears."
