Global Warmists Erupt in Fury over Australian T-Shirt Negotiators

Sidebar: The entire climate change walkout was a clever tactic by China, which has no remote interest in cutting any kind of emissions, but is happy to use the mythical crisis to jab at the West by leading the Third World in demands for billions in payouts to sabotage talks.

If anyone won the climate change summit, it was China. And its key grievance. Australian t-shirts.

Australia’s reputation at the international climate change talks hit a new low on Wednesday after the G77 and China took offence at what they described as the hard-line tactics and “bad behaviour” of the Australian negotiators and walked out of a crucial meeting.

Saleemul Huq, a scientific advisor on the issue of loss and damage to the 132 nations who make up the G77 and China negotiating bloc, said G77 negotiators had walked out of talks at 4am on Wednesday.

“There was continuous blockage of anything they wanted from Australia who were putting brackets around everything,” he said. “The behaviour of Australia’s negotiators was poor, they were being extremely insensitive, wearing t-shirts

“This is a serious issue. We are talking about life and death, people are dying from Typhoon Haiyan, we’ve got people on hunger strike here. You don’t trivialise these issues, by giggling, and marking brackets around anything. It is just not done.”

Don’t you understand… you don’t put brackets around things when there’s a typhoon. Or wear t-shirts. It isn’t done!

Instead you walk out of the summit whining about t-shirts and brackets and your useful idiot Warmist allies warn that the sky is falling and Australia’s reputation is trashed.

But the t-shirt truth is a bit more ordinary.

A spokeswoman for the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade defended Australia’s delegates.

“As is often the case at international negotiations, an informal discussion of negotiators was held overnight, starting at 10pm and concluding at 4am. Two of our delegates attended in smart-casual clothing, as did negotiators from other countries.

“Our delegates conducted themselves professionally at all times,” she said.

Meanwhile new Australian PM Tony Abbott is being accused of sabotaging Australia’s “Carbon economy”. That’s like screaming at the guy patching a hole in your boat that he’s sabotaging the H2O economy.

    China is the country, where you can cut smog with a butter knife.

    I have a sister-in-law living in Beijing, who a few years back had an eye ailment and it was attributed to irritation from the filthy polluted air. China has no room to talk.

      “China has no room to talk.”

      Yet they do, and people in the West listen. Because…

      • UCSPanther

        …money talks, and China has a lot of influence as a result.

    The hero of 2013 if I have my say.

      China is playing to the leftist/warmist crowd.

      If Australia had not gone along with total surrender, but a Labour government had been in power, this kabuki play would have been a nonstarter.

      Chinese oligarchs read foreign papers. They know how to play to the left. They know darn well this will give Labour ammunition for the next election.

        Exactly right…Communists have not changed in 100+ years.

      Only retards say that. One of his biggest election promises was to dismantle the criminal and preposterous carbon tax. And he won, with a good majority who gave him a clear mandate to do so.

      Our pathetic MSM is so full of venom they simply cannot accept Australia has a Conservative Government, so they report the opposite. Love it!

    Global Warmists should learn to stop ‘erupting’ altogether. Don’t they know that they’re contributing to greenhouse emissions?

    This coming from a generation that feels it doesn’t have to master a body of knowledge but only need to know how to type in a key word on Wiki. I can’t remember the stat but well over 100,000 janitors hold bachelor degrees. Who needs the competition in a tight job market? Let them whine and be left behind.
