Connie Hedegaard, UN Climate Conference President Resigns


Another interesting incident has happened at the Climate, Global Warming Conference in Copenhagen, UN Climate Conference President Connie Hedegaard resigns.

The Danish president of the U.N. climate conference, Connie Hedegaard, has resigned and will be replaced by the Danish prime minister as head of the historic talks.

The change was announced Wednesday as the 193-nation conference enters into a higher phase of negotiations, with world leaders arriving.

U.N. climate chief Yvo de Boer says Hedegaard will continue to lead informal talks but Prime Minister Lars Loekke Rasmussen will now be the formal head of the conference.

They have called the resignation, procedural. Really? The Conference has been in disarray from the outset. With riots in the street, Climate-gate, skepticism on global warming and Al Gore outlandish climate claims … the Coppenhagen Conference has turned out to be the joke we all knew it was.

A procedural resignation as spun as follows: “With so many heads of state and government having arrived it’s appropriate that the Prime Minister of Denmark presides,” Hedegaard told the 193-nation meeting.

Um, just out of curiosity didn’t they know that these folks would be coming in advance so why would some one resign now?

“With so many heads of state and government having arrived it’s appropriate that the Prime Minister of Denmark presides,” Hedegaard told the 193-nation meeting.

“However, the Prime Minister has appointed me as his special representative and I will thus continue to negotiate the…outcome with my colleagues,” she said.

She said the move was procedural. Separately, Hedegaard has been criticized by African nations for favoring rich nations in the negotiations.

      no its a joke because everybody is to afraid of their own intrests.

      US is looking to China, China to US, EU to both..Africa..well nobody really gives a s**t about them anyway.

      As long as neither party really wants to make a sacrifice then these conferences are a waste of energy and bad for the enviroment.

      Just becuase Al Gore is over the the top it doesn’t mean we shouldn’t think about how we treat our planet and its recources (not so good).
