A Big Nyet: Russia Doesn’t Want any Binding Caps on Carbon!

Energy must not be a barrier to our comfort. Our emerging middle class… demands lots of energy and it is our job to ensure comfortable supply,” he said.

We don’t plan to limit the use of fuel for our industries. We don’t think this would be right,” he said, referring to the current round of Kyoto.

Asked if Russia would resist capping the use of fossil fuels, which emit the planet-warming gas carbon dioxide when burned, under a new climate deal after 2012, he said:”In the foreseeable future, this will not be our model, no.”

Som jag sagt tidigare:

Det är alltså detta sanslösa och mycket dyra system som främjar fusk i stor skala som Global Warming Hysterikerna vill tvinga på världen. Och politikerna fullkomligt älskar detta system då de kan motivera i stort sett vilken skatte-/avgiftshöjning som helst med detta system. Det är ett gigantiskt skojeri!

”Det är enkelt att lova Guld och Gröna Skogar NÄR NÅGON ANNAN FÅR BETALA. Och att göra ”stolta” deklarationer på toppmöten. Nu har det  ekonomiska realiteterna gjort sig påminda och en del länder slåss nu för den egna tunga industrins fortlevnad.

Nu gäller inte längre vad man officiellt kom överens om för bara ett halvår sedan. Nu är det undantag för den egna industrin som gäller och inget annat. För det är GIGANTISKA SUMMOR som kommer att förslösas på dessa nonsensåtgärder.

Man blir så tröööttt på detta hyckleri. Och det här är ju inget nytt. Det här händer varenda gång som det har varit toppmöten och stolta deklarationer har antagits under stort jubel och fanfarer.

När ALLA VET att detta bara är ett spel för gallerierna och att det är hårda nationella och ekonomiska intressen som styr. Och ingenting annat!

Man undrar bara när svenska politiker skall ta av sig nattmössan och sluta prata om att Sverige skall vara ”ett föregångsland” och ”att vi skall ligga i täten” när det gäller åtgärder mot Global Warming (dvs. minska CO2).

Dvs. att Sverige skall gå i täten och vara världsledande på detta gigantiska skojeri. Arma svenska folk som kommer att få betala dessa gigantiska kostnader för dessa nonsensåtgärder.

Naturligtvis ivrigt påhejade av de andra EU medlemmarna EFTERSOM EU: S KLIMATMÅL (dvs. sänkningen av CO2) gäller för EU SOM HELHET och INTE enskilda länder.

Vilket innebär att om någon vill ”gå före” och ”ta täten” så slipper resten av EU:s medlemsländer billigare undan. Så naturligtvis så stödjer de helhjärtat dessa svenska åtaganden för det blir ju inte de som får betala det höga priset. Det får nämligen det svenska folket göra! Tack för det!”

När skall våra kära politiker börja FÖRSTÅ de ekonomiska realiteterna av Global Warming Hysterin? Och de ofantliga summor som kommer att förslösas på nonsensåtgärder. Åtgärder som är ett direkt hot mot vår demokrati, vår frihet, vårt välstånd och vår ekonomi! Dessa orimliga kostnader utgör ett direkt hot för den industriella överlevnaden i den här delen av världen. Men det pratar man tyst om.

Som sagt, fler och fler börjar INSE de GIGANTISKA KOSTNADERNA för att genomföra dessa nonsensåtgärder. När skall de svenska politikerna vakna – När sista lampan har släckts och all industri är borta?

Nyet: Russia Doesn’t Want a Tough Cap on Carbon

Posted by Keith Johnson

As much flak as the Bush administration gets for opposing calls for a touch new cap on gobal-warming emissions to replace the Kyoto Protocol, it’s instructive to remeber the administration is hardly alone. Plenty of other countries are happy just the way things are- eager to keep their economic growth hopping and convinced a hard emissions cap would stymie it.

Take Russia, for instance. Under Kyoto, it’s considered an industrialized countrywhich it was in 1990, the starting line for Kyoto obligations. But the economic meltdown after the implosion of the Soviet Union left Russia’s economy a whole lot smaller-and emitting a lot fewer greenhouse gases-than Kyoto holds it accountable for. So Russia today has no obligation to curb emissions-and doesn’t want any obligation in the future, either. Reuters reports (via the Guardian):

As a top energy producer and consumer, Russia welcomed the fact that Kyoto had not limited its carbon emissions and expected the same of any future climate deal, said Vsevolod Gavrilov, the official in charge of Russia‘s Kyoto obligations.

”Energy must not be a barrier to our comfort. Our emerging middle class… demands lots of energy and it is our job to ensure comfortable supply,” he said. ”We don’t plan to limit the use of fuel for our industries. We don’t think this would be right,” he said, referring to the current round of Kyoto.

Not that climate accords are all bad. Rich-country investment under Kyoto auspices to promote cleaner technology in the developing world is always welcome, Mr. Gavrilov told Reuters. ”We see (Kyoto) as a means, not as an end in itself… It is a way to get new technology for our industries,” said Mr. Gavrilov.

Russia is humming the same tune as China and India. Right now, those countries don’t have limits on their emissions. Developing countries say they are entitled to improve their standard of living and that richer countries-which have been polluting longer-must shoulder the initial burden of trimming greenhouse-gas emissions.

Rich countries led by the U.S. insist that rapid-growing developing economies, which tend to be less efficient and emit more GHG, have to play ball for any new climate-change program to be acceptable. President Bush reiterated his call for developing-world cooperation in his Rose Garden climate speech this month.

Mr. Gavrilov’s candor is a useful reminder that resistance to a hard global agreement on global warming extends far beyond Washington.

Russia says has no plans to cap carbon emissions

Reuters

Monday April 28 2008

By Simon Shuster

MOSCOW, April 28 (Reuters) – Russia will not accept binding caps on its greenhouse gas emissions under a new climate regime, currently being negotiated to succeed the Kyoto Protocol after 2012, top officials said on Monday.

Kyoto puts a cap on the average, annual greenhouse gas emissions from 2008-12 for some 37 industrialised countries, including Russia.

But former communist countries are well within their emissions targets, which are compared to 1990 levels, because their industries and carbon emissions subsequently collapsed after they struggled to adapt to free markets.

As a top energy producer and consumer, Russia welcomed the fact that Kyoto had not limited its carbon emissions and expected the same of any future climate deal, said Vsevolod Gavrilov, the official in charge of Russia’s Kyoto obligations.

Energy must not be a barrier to our comfort. Our emerging middle class… demands lots of energy and it is our job to ensure comfortable supply,” he said.

”We don’t plan to limit the use of fuel for our industries. We don’t think this would be right,” he said, referring to the current round of Kyoto.

Asked if Russia would resist capping the use of fossil fuels, which emit the planet-warming gas carbon dioxide when burned, under a new climate deal after 2012, he said:”In the foreseeable future, this will not be our model, no.”

He pointed out that the United States had also declined to impose emissions caps.

But Russia welcomed investment from other industrialised countries to help it clean up its energy and industry, saying in this way it could prevent greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to 3 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide.

Under Kyoto, industrialised countries which are missing their emissions goals can pay for cuts elsewhere — if that is cheaper — getting carbon offsets in return.

OFFSET

Industrialised countries spent some 326 million euros last year buying such offsets from former communist countries, under Kyoto‘s Joint Implementation (JI) scheme. ”We see (Kyoto) as a means, not as an end in itself… It is a way to get new technology for our industries,” said Gavrilov.

A key way for Russia to profit from the planned 3 billion tonnes of emission reductions will be by trapping and processing natural gas, a by-product of oil production. By 2012, Russia has called for 95 percent of its associated gas to be harnessed and sold, whereas more than 25 percent of it is currently flared, wasting 20 billion cubic meters of natural gas a year and releasing carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. ”Why is the flaring of gas so common? It’s because of economic barriers to building infrastructure that will process it,” said Mikhail Stavsky, vice president of Russia’s largest oil firm, Rosneft.

With the help of trading in carbon offsets, Stavsky said that the profitability of such gas harnessing will roughly double, and the return on investment in the projects will come in 7 years, compared to 17 years without Kyoto. 

Russia’s gas export monopoly Gazprom will also use these mechanisms to harness the gas, said Alexander Ishkov, the head of its energy saving and environmental department.

”We are expecting to cut tens of millions of tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent” by 2012, he said.

Out of the twelve emissions-reduction projects that have applied for JI approval, several are from companies at least partly owned by Gazprom, Oleg Pluzhnikov, Gavrilov’s deputy at the Economy Ministry, told Reuters.

”They are keeping a low profile for now. But when they see it working, I think they will put their name behind it.”
