US and China SNUB climate change talks despite being BIGGEST coal producers –
By Paul Homewood h/t Patsy Lacey From the Express: A MASSIVE United Nations climate change conference has been rendered pointless after being snubbed by China and America – the world’s biggest coal producers. Representatives from nearly 200 countries met in Katowice, Poland, on Sunday, marking the beginning of two weeks of talks to save the 2015 Paris deal on climate change. But the US is not attending the COP24 conference after Donald Trump pulled America out of the UN agreement in a major blow to the deal. And China is not expected to send its top politicians to the talks but merely a couple of low-level delegates. https://www.express.co.uk/news/world/1053684/us-china-news-climate-change-COP24-poland-katowice-paris-deal-2015 Katowice was never likely to achieve much, though no doubt some meaningless declaration will be issued at the end, purporting to show everybody is moving forward together. The real objective is to persuade rich countries to cough up $100 bn a year. The fact that China has downgraded its delegation is a sure sign that they will make no concessions at all.
