Climate change meeting for Auckland

More than 60 international climate change negotiators from 35 countries will meet in Auckland next week.

The minister responsible for international climate change negotiations, Tim Groser, said the meeting would focus on "the crucial issue" of transparency around emissions reductions. "We need to agree on how to measure, report and verify individual countries’ actions so we can make sure that the global effort is on track”.

New Zealand will co-chair the meeting with Mexico and South Africa, who are the current and incoming chairs for the United Nations negotiating process. Mr Groser will lead discussions around reducing greenhouse gas emissions. He facilitated agreement on this issue in Cancun last December.

Mr Groser said the world agreed at that meeting that global warming increases must be kept below two degrees Celcius. "Achieving transparency about emissions is an important step towards achieving the goal that we set in Cancun. This meeting aims to help determine how we monitor our individual and collective progress."

What an utter rort. Will the highly reputable climate change skeptiks be invited, or even "allowed" to speak?

Wasn't this once a democracy, where free debate was striven for?

This is a farce...Which of these now hopelessly compromised political parties will you vote for, i.e. encourage- at the next election?

You do have a genuine choice now to make a change. Check out www.100days.co.nz

utter nonsense and waste of money. Like money will do anything to change what is going to happen anyway. Climate change -- geesus...humans can do nothing about it, so how about let's focus on things we CAN change -- like getting people in power that are not utter morons trying to scam another tax through on the working class as something that is GOOD FOR US. I guess they think we are all as stupid as they are huh? Global warming. Yeah right -- wish it were. Haven't seen any warmer temps in years. What a bunch of old farts looking to make money off the population by taxing the air we breathe. How about we tax these politicians for their farts (both out of the mouth and the other end?) That would make ALOT of sense now.

Who said there's no such thing as organised crime, you only need to look at this congregation of fraudsters to see that it's alive and well. Next month perhaps we could host a convention of Nigerian internet investment opportunities.

The measurable effects of CO2 on temperature show a doubling of total atmospheric CO2 gives around a 1 degree increase in temperature. Mans emmisions are a small fraction of this total so we could quadruple our emissions with little ill-effect.(certainly less than 2 degrees)
Assuming a warmer world would be a bad thing. I don't think so and would fear any cooling far more. Note that we are entering a period of lower solar action and look at what has occurred in the past in such instances.

cO2 is heavier than air. Never gets to the atmosphere.

The Torchlight deal was so tainted it should be investigated before anyone can judge whether fraud was involved. It definatley needs the Securities Commission to investigate as it was made to look like they didn't link when it was just one big money roundabout - ie cash neutra <a href="http://www.volpepackaging.com">presentation folders</a>

Climate change is an alarming crisis that we have been experience today. I think this gathering helps to inform other countries and what should be the action for this problem. <url=http://projectmanagementacademy.net/select-location.php>pmp exam prep</url>
