Climate change pact: PM says no winners or losers

Prime Minister Narendra Modi. PTI file photoNew Delhi, Dec 13, 2015, (PTI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi today described the landmark climate change deal reached in Paris last night as the victory of “climate justice” and said there are no winners or losers in the outcome.

He appreciated how every country rose to the challenge for reaching the agreement at the Conference of Parties (COP)-21 and said deliberations showed collective wisdom of the world leaders to mitigate climate change.

“Outcome of #ParisAgreement has no winners or losers. Climate justice has won & we are all working towards a greener future,” Modi tweeted, commenting on the legally-binding pact which seeks to limit global warming to “well below” 2 degrees Celsius and making developed nations commit USD 100 billion a year from 2020 to help developing countries.

“#ClimateChange remains a challenge but #ParisAgreement demonstrates how every nation rose to the challenge, working towards a solution,” the Prime Minister said in another tweet.

He added: “Deliberations at #COP21 & #ParisAgreement demonstrates the collective wisdom of world leaders to mitigate climate change.”

The historic agreement signed by 195 countries was reached after tough deliberations for days.

Just before the 31-page document was finalised, French President François Hollande, who hosted the conference, called up Modi to apprise him of the latest status at the talks.
“The Prime Minister appreciated this gesture of French President,” a PMO statement said.

  1. Introduce a national beef-ban to increase the production of methane gas which can contribute much
    for the climate condition in India and around the world.

    • What about the non stop production and release of Hydrogen sulfide from your own Kipp’s apparatus Mathew saar? Are you telling that consuming beef by your extended famatic family and friends if any is the point under discussion? You seem to have a serious cortical deficit.

  2. These crooks are no longer using #GlobalWarming.

    As part of this pact, the fake climate scientists are going to get $100 billion, which of course is paid for by your tax dollars. Now suck it up. Governments have got a new excuse to impose more taxes on the masses. Who is at the other end? No prizes for the right answer.

    Amidst all this, it’s sad that our home-grown scientist Pachauri’s test……… was too high recently so he will not be getting this slice of the pie. Perhaps he will be busy with court appearances.

    Weather Warfare: Beware the US Military’s Experiments with Climatic Warfare

    ‘Climatic warfare’ has been excluded from the agenda on climate change.

    http://www.globalresearch.ca/weather-warfare-beware-the-us-military-s-experiments-with-climatic-warfare/7561

    This article was first published by The Ecologist in December 2007. I summarizes several in-depth and detailed articles written by the author on the HAARP program.

    The debate on climate change does not acknowledge the role of climatic warfare, namely the deliberate manipulation of climate for military use.

    “HAARP is a weapon of mass destruction, capable of destabilising agricultural and ecological systems globally.”

    “‘Climatic warfare’ potentially threatens the future of humanity, but has casually been excluded from the reports for which the IPCC received the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize.” It has also been excluded from the November 2015 Paris Climate Summit.

    Rarely acknowledged in the debate on global climate change, the world’s weather can now be modified as part of a new generation of sophisticated electromagnetic weapons. Both the US and Russia have developed capabilities to manipulate the climate for military use.

    Environmental modification techniques have been applied by the US military for more than half a century. US mathematician John von Neumann, in liaison with the US Department of Defense, started his research on weather modification in the late 1940s at the height of the Cold War and foresaw ‘forms of climatic warfare as yet unimagined’. During the Vietnam war, cloud-seeding techniques were used, starting in 1967 under Project Popeye, the objective of which was to prolong the monsoon season and block enemy supply routes along the Ho Chi Minh Trail.

    The US military has developed advanced capabilities that enable it selectively to alter weather patterns. The technology, which is being perfected under the High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP), is an appendage of the Strategic Defense Initiative – ‘Star Wars’. From a military standpoint, HAARP is a weapon of mass destruction, operating from the outer atmosphere and capable of destabilising agricultural and ecological systems around the world.

    In 1977, an international Convention was ratified by the UN General Assembly which banned ‘military or other hostile use of environmental modification techniques having widespread, long-lasting or severe effects.’ It defined ‘environmental modification techniques’ as ‘any technique for changing –through the deliberate manipulation of natural processes – the dynamics, composition or structure of the earth, including its biota, lithosphere, hydrosphere and atmosphere, or of outer space.’

    While the substance of the 1977 Convention was reasserted in the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) signed at the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio, debate on weather modification for military use has become a scientific taboo.

    According to a report by the Russian State Duma: ‘The US plans to carry out large-scale experiments under the HAARP programme [and] create weapons capable of breaking radio communication lines and equipment installed on spaceships and rockets, provoke serious accidents in electricity networks and in oil and gas pipelines, and have a negative impact on the mental health of entire regions.’*

    An analysis of statements emanating from the US Air Force points to the unthinkable: the covert manipulation of weather patterns, communications and electric power systems as a weapon of global warfare, enabling the US to disrupt and dominate entire regions. Weather manipulation is the pre-emptive weapon par excellence. It can be directed against enemy countries or ‘friendly nations’ without their knowledge, used to destabilise economies, ecosystems and agriculture. It can also trigger havoc in financial and commodity markets. The disruption in agriculture creates a greater dependency on food aid and imported grain staples from the US and other Western countries.

    Is this is ‘El-Nino’ or ‘weather warfare needs to extensively studied. When flood can submerge a mega cities to standstill and crops grow dry without adequate rains, the country like India may face with billion plus population to feed it may prove catastrophic for any government in power.

    Is Modi who was one of the representative in climate change summit has knowledge of terrible warfare,which can cripple our economy which is still not able to find farmers suicide?
