UN chief to attend Bali conference on climate change

United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon is planning to attend a conference on climate change on the Indonesian resort island of Bali in December this year, the executive secretary of the Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), Yvo de Boer, said here on Thursday.

But de Boer said he had yet to obtain formal information on which countries would send officials at head of state/government level to the meeting which would bring together around 10,000 people from 189 countries.

"It is too early to say which countries will send officials at head of state/government level," de Boer told ANTARA here.

He said the Bali conference on climate change was scheduled to be conducted from December 3-14 but the presence of the UN chief has yet to be confirmed because it would depend on developments around various international issues.

Speaking at a press conference at the UN Headquarters on Thursday, de Boer said there was a strong desire from various countries and international private sectors to stem the tide of greenhouse gas emission.

He made the statement following several reports on climate change and the results of a meeting among Climate Change Convention countries in Bonn, Germany, last week.

The Bonn meeting, attended by 191 countries subscrbing to the Climate Change Convention and 173 Kyoto Protocol countries, was aimed at reducing green house gas emission until 2012 and held in a preparation of the main conference in Bali.

de Boer said it was the first time for the participants of the Bonn meeting to respond to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)`s report on an inexpensive technology to deal with climate change.

Asked what activity in Indonesia was contributing the most to climate change , de Boer said, "Illegal logging." (*)

It's not about CO2 it's about ozone depletion, the evidence for CO2 fell away yet the evidence for climate change grew? We have been accusing greenhouse gasses for so long we didn't know what else there could be, so we kept accusing greenhouse gases like CO2. In the late 1940's the temperature fell for 5 years while both CO2 and solar variance were rising thus ruling them out plain and simple. Yet what did happen was the largest shift in man made radio frequency propagation through the atmosphere. The IPCC has overlooked the fact that our global temperature has been following the rise in broadcast technology for 100 years. It was discovered 30 years ago that radiowaves from a scientific broadcast transmitter could stimulate a known ozone depletion mechanism called electron precipitation. The US knows this and that's why they won't join CO2 restrictions. Don't buy into CO2 until we run tests on electron precipitation. CFC levels have dropped since 2000, but largest ozone hole on record was October 2006! There are two things we put into the atmosphere air and radio pollution, you have to recognize broadcast and it's effects on the environment. Not to do so is blind!!
