Representatives from the world’s major economic powers responsible for 80 percent of global emissions will meet in New York City to discuss climate change.

The talks are a part of the Major Economies Forum on Energy and Climate, launched by US President Barack Obama following last year’s disappointing conference in Copenhagen.

Pat Michaels, a senior fellow at the Cato Institute in Washington, DC said the meeting will be useless; saying nothing of substance will likely come out of the event. In particular no new policies would be developed, he argued.

The follow-up conference to the Copenhagen meeting will be held in November in Cancun, Mexico. Michaels said he does not expect much from that conference as well. He even poked at the fact that the time, money and emissions required to hold such an event are counterproductive to the climate change discussion.

More talks, but I doubt anything is going to come out of this, once again.

Why cant they just do all of this over the phone/internet? All the pollution from traveling....and then going to Cancun. I thought Cancun is where people go to party?

A Cap & Trade Scheme is the agenda.

ANY problem is sufficient to bring about this financial scam. Climate is their best hope of achieving this scam. If not climate, it will be another "looming disaster".

Be wary of any "problem" if the solution is a massive financial scheme.

When they meet they will all know that Global Warming is a fraud to make more money but they will say the opposite to the public. This is quite common with liars but hey to them money and control is more important.
