Josh has a simple cartoon to summarise COP24

I do wonder whether he could have drawn it two weeks ago, and saved the burning of Poland's coal.

After 2 weeks of bruising negotiations, officials from 200 countries agreed on universal, transparent rules that will ensure siphoning off public money to finance their foreign travel and pad their salaries

After Mark Hodgson's herculean efforts digging out all the parasites from COP23 in the discussion threads - the above quote stolen from Twitter covers COP24 neatly I feel.

Lord Deben:

May the good Lord rot his soul.

Over on ITTB
And, pausing to listen to tonight's PM on Radio 4, I now hear it through David's book:

First, as the BBC presenter put it, "no one said that saving the planet would be easy". Yes, it was global warming, and an interview with the right kind of BBC guest for this issue: the intensely activist former Tory minister John Gummer (Lord Deben). He wants the present (centre-right) Australian government chucked out because of its policies on climate change. The BBC presenter didn't defend the Australian government or challenge His Lordship.

About 10,000 years ago, as the last ice age thawed, water would have flooded into parts not reached in living memory, all over the world. I don't think the rising water made judgements about people's religious beliefs.

\\ I’m sure our UK troll supreme Phil Cl*rke will bring his famous expert consultancy services to bear in comments to tell us how we’ve all misinterpreted this as he’s done in previous comments here. /sarc //

I have recently read much about the discovery of a humungous crater buried by the Hiawatha Glacier in Northern Greenland (recent stuff from satellite data is easily found on t'internet).

It appears to add extra weight to arguments surrounding the "Noah's Ark" flood and other 'tales of a cataclysmic flood' more than 10,000 years ago that abound around the globe. I have no concrete opinion, and don't need to, but it is very interesting.
