The latest from folk who are locked in an imaginary greenhouse world where humans can alter and somehow control the climate, and who foresee Hollywood-style scenarios if they ‘fail’ to do so. A nebulous deal has been cobbled together, so all 20,000 plus of them can make their fuel-powered ways home.

Diplomats from around the world have agreed a major climate deal after two weeks of United Nations talks in Poland, reports The Independent.

But climate campaigners warned the deal – effectively a set of rules for how to govern the 2015 Paris climate accord – agreed between almost 200 countries lacked ambition or a clear promise of enhanced climate action.

Activists cautiously welcomed elements of the plan, saying “important progress” had been made on ensuring that efforts to tackle climate change by individual nations can be measured and compared.

But environmental groups were also highly critical of the agreement, warning it lacked ambition and clarity on key issues, including financing for climate projects for developing countries.

The COP24 deal, which is aimed at providing firm guidelines for countries on how to transparently report their greenhouse gas emissions and their efforts to reduce them, was confirmed on Saturday evening after talks overran from Friday.
