Copenhagen and the Ambassador of Common Sense

Most people have heard by now that 130 representatives walked out of the Copenhagen Summit yesterday. The Ambassador from Africa explains the reason why. We agree with him, China does not require money but technology. Climategate has become an issue over money, distribution and the scientists involved in the subject of climate change.

It is clear from the reports that countries like the USA, Saudi Arabia, India and China simply refuse to change their ways. Cutting emissions is not an either or and the USA should be taking responsibility by reducing the amount of energy it uses even if no other country complied. Most people are not aware that Las Vegas uses more water than any other city in the world and the USA uses 30% of the worlds energy resources.

The USA and other powerful nations cannot be allowed to black mail the poor ones. The 130 delegates support the Kyoto agreement that forces rich countries to reduce or limit their greenhouse gas emissions. However, it appears that the USA and China did not sign this original agreement. Hence why the USA are using this as an excuse for a new one instead of simply sign the original one.

We give our full support to the African Ambassador and agree with him. The third world countries shall not be bulldozed by the West anymore because they have nothing to lose now and all to gain. There appears to be no further breakthrough today at the summit.

"The Alliance of Small Island States (AOSIS) continues to be deeply unhappy because bigger nations are working towards a goal of limiting global temperature rise to two degrees Celsius. They are losing their coastlines and sometime entire islands due to the current temperature rise of 0.87 degrees, and want the world to stick to a 1.5-degree cap.

"Now the Copenhagen Declaration will have to come from the top, from the heads of state. We negotiators have failed."

Two years back, the Copenhagen summit was supposed to be the deadline by which a legally binding international treaty to tackle climate change would be ready for signatures. But now the best observers hope for is a non-binding political declaration of intent."

We also support the UN Earth Charter that was developed and agreed upon by many nations.

The Global Situation
An opportunity to change minds and hearts.

"Communities are being undermined. The benefits of development are not shared equitably and the gap between rich and poor is widening. Injustice, poverty, ignorance and violent conflict are widespread and the cause of great suffering. We must decide to live with a sense of universal responsibility, identifying ourselves with the whole Earth community as well as our own local communities. Everyone shares responsibility for the present and the future well-being of the human family and the larger living world. As never before in history, common destiny beacons us to seek a new beginning. This requires a change of mind and heart. It requires a new sense of global interdependence and universal responsibility. Life often involves tensions between important values. This can mean difficult choices. However, we must find ways to harmonize diversity with unity, the exercise of freedom with the common good, short term objectives with long-term goals. Every individual, family, organization, and community has a vital role to play." UN Earth Charter, Agenda 21

May common sense and rationality prevail. Humanity cannot continue to live this way, frogs are dying and they lived through all of the earth changes in the last 200 million years. Anyone with any common sense can see that the eco system is being destroyed by humanity with its pollution combined with raping the natural resources of the planet.

Follow your hearts and listen to nature and the animals. Your life could depend upon it.

In the scripture Jesus said 'I tell you truly, the Book of Nature is a HOLY SCROLL, and if you would have the Sons of Men save themselves and find everlasting life, teach them how once again to read from the living pages of the Earthly Mother. For in everything that is life is the law written. It is written in the grass, in the trees, in the rivers, in the mountains, birds of the sky and fishes of the sea; and most of all in the Son of Man. Only when he returns to the bosom of the Earthly Mother will he find everlasting life and the Stream of Life which leads to his Heavenly Father; only thus may the dark vision of the future not come to pass". The Essene Gospel of Peace, Book 4, Teachings of the Elect.
