CO2 targets don`t go far enough....

Well, they never do, and no one will meet the targets why bother with this ridiculous charade...
THE cuts in greenhouse gases offered at the 192-nation climate conference are "clearly not enough" to assure the world it will head off dangerous global warming, a key UN-affiliated scientist has declared.

Such projections, moreover, do not even account for the "potentially hugely important" threat of methane from the Arctic's thawing permafrost, other researchers have said.

Richer nations are offering firm reductions in emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases ranging from 3 per cent to 4 per cent for the US to 20 per cent for the European Union, in terms of 2020 emission levels compared with 1990.

One authoritative independent analysis finds the aggregate cuts amount to 8-12 per cent. But the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the UN-sponsored science network, recommends that reductions average in the 25-40 per cent range to keep global temperature increases below 2C above preindustrial levels and head off the worst of global warming.

Swiss physicist Thomas Stocker said of the numbers discussed in Copenhagen: "I think it is clearly not enough. We are by far short of having security that the two-degree target will be met."
These scientists believe we are at the controls of a giant thermostat and that we can just set it for two degrees backwards....its just so incredibly naive...
