WHAT the heck is this about? Only 500 days to avoid 'Climate Chaos'???
Is this doom porn with a date from the French Foreign Minister?
Or is this pushing Obama's climate alarm from last week?
Is he talking about the December 2015 Climate Conference?
Something else? Anyone know? The wording is intense!

French Foreign Minister: '500 Days to Avoid Climate Chaos'

This is his exact quote -


Well, I’m very happy to be with John. There is no week without a phone call or a visit between John and myself, and we have on the agenda many items, many issues – Iran, because negotiations are resuming today; the question of Syria, and we shall meet next Thursday in London together; Ukraine as well; and very important issues, issue of climate change, climate chaos. And we have – as I said, we have 500 days to avoid climate chaos. And I know that President Obama and John Kerry himself are committed on this subject and I’m sure that with them, with a lot of other friends, we shall be able to reach success on this very important matter.


The article states that there is a climate conference coming in December of 2015. Is he saying that things have to go a certain way before that or else the climate conference will take drastic measures? THAT would be a conspiracy to talk about ... what is going on behind the scenes with countries in regards to climate control ... and in regards to corporations and their money making ventures under the guise of climate control ...

500 days .... and counting. What the heck are they up to???

The Info on the Climate Conference for Dec 2015


France was officially selected in Warsaw to host the 21st Conference of the Parties on Climate Change in 2015. France is already totally galvanized to ensure that a binding, fair, global climate agreement is reached in Paris in 2015, in order to limit global warming to 2ºC. ...

The meeting will mark a decisive stage in negotiations on the future international agreement on a post-2020 regime, and will, as agreed in Durban, adopt the major outlines of that regime.

By the end of the meeting, for the first time in over 20 years of UN negotiations, all the nations of the world, including the biggest emitters of greenhouse gases, will be bound by a universal agreement on climate.

In order for the agreement to come into effect in 2020, at the end of the second commitment period of the Kyoto Protocol, subsequent COP meetings will work on finalising its details. The Presidency of the COP plays a vital role, not only during the actual COP meeting (in reality, a series of meetings held in parallel over a two-week period), but also in the organisation of a number of meetings held in preparation for the COP.


The language is disturbing ....
ALL nations of the world will be held bound .... 'post-2020 regime

Is this what the French Foreign minister is talking about when he says only 500 days to avoid 'climate chaos'? Why would he use those words? They are intense words. There has to be a lot going on behind the scenes that we don't know about.

Load up on supplies. If you're not a prepper, you might just want to start.

I doubt anything happens, but it's good to be prepaired for the worst.

That does seem to be some high caliber doom porn there. I am the first to admit that I love some good doom porn but only when it's safe doom porn.

I'm not sure if those words were used to invoke fear to speed up some form of change or if there is something a wee bit scary behind it. One thing we know for sure... Is that we probably won't know. Unless of course we find ourselves being shaken off of earth like a bunch of filthy fleas in 500 days.

I am very curious now. Thanks for the share FF.

Well...

Before the usual French bashing starts again which seems to be a common thing around these parts at the moment, maybe this is what Laurent Fabius the French Foreign minister was talking about :

It is unclear what the foreign minister had in mind with the 500 days. However, France is scheduled to host the "21st Conference of the Parties on Climate Change" in December 2015, about 565 days from now.

This is not new. There was another date like this a few years ago. It was supposed to be a date if we didn't all become super 'green' about everything we would be facing disaster after disaster. It was largely ignored. Majority of people on the planet don't care about the lump of rock we are living on.
Governments wheel it out every so often as an excuse to collect more taxes.

Yea mate...

Dont forget that the French are cowards too... thats a big sterotypical untolerant image here on ATS as well.

Sadly this thread will not get much attention as a European country has been named in the thread title... which does not interest most people here... even if someone wrote a thread about the hundreds of Turkish miners that have been buried and killed in Turkey yesterday it wouldn't matter... however, if you mentioned Obama was involved... like WOW....

Right, back to opening up that bottle of Château St Georges Cabernet with my gorgeous unsmelly vegetarian French wife over here in the Loire Valley region.

Kindest respects

Yeah .. I brought up the Climate Conference thing ... it's 500+ days out. BUT ... that doesn't explain his statement about 'only 500 days to avoid 'climate chaos'. So, if he's talking about the conference, (That's a BIG 'IF') there will be 'climate chaos' after the conference? And a post 2020 'Regime' ??? Those are high octane words ....

HALLMARKS OF A SCAM

union-bulletin.com...

Step 1 - Grab it while you can




Virtually all successful scams come dressed up in urgency. The primary goal of the scammer is to make sure that you won’t have the time to reflect, consult and check. And since you, the investor, know that to make a huge profit you need to take risks, you decide to take the plunge. The unacceptable alternative is to let the deal slip away. #A good con man will often play on the fear of the victim, that he is about to miss the deal because others are going to invest on a "first come, first served" basis. My advice is never to put your money in a scheme that doesn't give you the time to review it.


In this case, of course, the deadline is the "environmental tipping point". The message here is that if the governments of every nation don't put up investment funds to reduce carbon emissions, it will soon be "too late" to SAVE the planet?

Please, won't someone think of the CHEEEELDREN"

In 1989, The UN predicted that we would be past the tipping point in 20 Years.

Hi Flyers,

I think that what must be taken into consideration is the way that his words have been translated by the journalst as well in order to make this article sell as doom porn... Jerl Bier the Journalist is an extremely pro American journalist and does not usually write articles about foreign affairs.

All links to keywords on this particular article always seems to go onto US based news sources and I personally cannot find anything on a European or other foreign news source site? (Especially in France where I live... Have not even heard this on the news over here?)

Kindest respects

You are a lucky man.
My post that maligned the French was in jest, of course.

Then you reminded me of the whole coward thing.....

I am indeed Butcher... I know your words were only in jest, just wanted to have a fun poke at you.

On a more serious note though :

A reporter brought up Fabius’ comment to White House press secretary Jay Carney, drawing laughter in the press room when he asked, “I wonder what your timeline is.”

I wonder what nationality the reporter was???

“I don’t have a specific reaction to that statement except to say that the National Climate Assessment that was released last week paints a picture about the fact that these impacts are already here,” Carney said. “Some are sooner than expected, than the scientists expected. And that only reinforces the need to approach this in the kind of comprehensive way that the president has laid out.”

I would like to invite people to read this and other linked articles on the same page :

My take is that if China and India are going to forced to follow the same rules as the rest of us.... there will be chaos.

Over here in France the word Chaos can also be used for catastrophic or chaotic.

I believe that the French Foreign minister was outlining the issue as catastrophic (word that also means extremly dangerous) but seeing as he is not PERFECTLY bilingual some unintelligent journalists have decided to use the word chaos in order to sell a story to the sheeple. (Probably being the reason that we over here in France of not heard about this story yet?)

Kindest respects

Sounds like you didn't read the entirety of the original post in your first reply. Also, it sounds like you are either french and don't like ATS or don't like ATS in general. Maybe a democrat as well? Am I close? Sorry I am new to this site.

Just saw your last post here and saw you said you live in France so I was right on one point. Damn I'm good! Now just down to whether you don't like ATS and are a democrat or not. Going for 3/3!

Yep... you are good for the living in France bit


Nope not good for the rest though... I love being here on ATS and nope I am not a democrat or have any other political view... not allowed to vote being a foreigner in France.

I don't get your point though about being an ATS hater?

Oh... by the way, welcome to ATS.

Guess I must be thick or ignorant?

Kindest respects
