Hysteria from Gore as Poznan fizzles

Al Gore has added his ever-increasing weight to the hysteria at Poznan claiming that tinkering with a harmless trace gas is the "greatest challenge humankind has ever faced" (ignoring, of course, poverty, clean drinking water, cures for cancer and other terminal diseases), and The Age goes into full arse-lick mode over this peddler of misinformation:
Mr Gore, a Nobel laureate for his crusading work to combat climate change, highlighted steps already being taken to make a case that a new deal was possible by next year's deadline meeting in Copenhagen.

And, true to form, Gore throws in yet more alarmism:
But he also warned that the predictions of the UN's climate scientists had now been surpassed, and that deeper cuts in emissions than were currently being considered would be needed. Stabilising atmospheric carbon dioxide levels at 450 parts per million - factoring in a temperature rise of about two degrees - would be an incredibly difficult first step but ultimately not enough, he said.

"We will have to toughen that goal to 350 parts per million - we understand that," he said. Carbon dioxide concentrations are already more than 380 parts per million.

"Very simply put, it is wrong for this generation to destroy the habitability of our planet and ruin the prospects of every future generation," Mr Gore said.

The predictions of the IPCC didn't see the current cooling, did they, so how can they possibly be being surpassed? More lies and deception. And no-one is actually sure what the carbon-fuelled gab-fest in Poznan has actually achieved, if anything. The papers are full of stories about the EU deal on emissions, but are strangely silent on Poznan. However, the WWF was a little less than complementary about the EU deal, which was only reached by including rafts of exemptions rendering the deal almost meaningless:
"This is a flagship EU policy with no captain, a mutinous crew and several gaping holes in it," said Sanjeev Kumar of environment pressure group WWF.

I never thought I'd find myself agreeing with the WWF!
