Bad Climate change #COP20 #COP21 Lima Paris

#FF @ Xi Jinping, who joined the G2 Club. Hopefully the World Managers will accept a G5 board

The quiet victory of Xi Jinping in China is not as twitted and buzzed as President Obama’s clean sweep of Mitt Romney between a storm and a snowfall, but the cook of the World’s Savers Club must prepare world food for two (or more) now. Fast.

But as we have (in most parts of the world) reached the XXIst century, full club membership should of course be authorized for ladies.

And as a matter of gender balance, a second Lady is advisable for dinner.

But of course, a Gang of Four may not be everybody’s cup of tea in the Club. Then, who else ?

Ladies first.

And why shouldn’t that be enough to do the job, folks ?

Provided the 5 don’t forget about nature, climate, biodiversity and all that stuff the ecolocrats discuss once a year on the beach with a daiquiri or Champagne.

Provided the 5 don’t forget about peace, economics, education, employment, security, food, health and all that stuff our local leaders should take care of but apparently can’t cope with (especially in a sustainable, win-win way).

Provided, that at least one of the 5 twits now and then in English about where we all are aiming at, now that e-world-democracy is here to stay.

Tea (green please), coffee (black of course) or wine (French if possible), whatever works as long as we can have Champagne (French of course) for Xmas and prepare for a Happy New Year 2013 …

#French #Ecology = Politic(ian)s under the Sun, be it of Cancun, Durban, Rio or #Paris

Not all greencrats of France could go to the Rio+20 global conference (for budget or hotel capacity reasons, but also because not all of them speak English), so French President Hollande agreed to speak at a green French conference in Paris.

Not that there was much to say, as the socialist plateform for the presidential election was only a few months old.

Not that there was a great new opening joke.

Not that there was much new or very impressive green under the French sun worth mentionning.

Not that there was much new that the French ecolocats could not have read on the internet since Rio+20.

But the French ecolocrats are not that different from the other ecolocrats of the world, and they love to meet top level politicians once a year, to discuss together now and then (preferably in French), and to visit nice cities (preferably not in France), preferably at seaside but not necessarily if the weather is nice, the food good and the Champagne cool.

And even if they don’t talk about the real issues because nobody agrees on solutions, neither on causes and not even on facts, they appreciate, that there is an occasion to talk about them even if it is missed as usual.

So, the French have organized a French conference, 14-15th September in Paris, and the participants will listen to speeches by several French ministers (at least 15) and a lot of French ecolocrats. French ecology (Frenchology) and French “changement” (the more, the less) as usual.

The (#Green) #French should soon be (Back) at Work for a (to) #Change (#France)

Fifty-Fifty, fair enough, but does it work ?

Everybody in France (and other places where people think a sinking Europe is a bad customer and could be an awful debtor) cross fingers, that after their never ending French elections and summer holiday, the French are ready for real work, now.

French Lagarde (IMF Boss) & French Lamy (WTO Boss)

Everybody, even out of France, expects the French Government is seriously at work, now. Not just playing “serious games” …

Cécile Duflot, August 2012, at French Green Summer Camp. Was elected “Député” of Paris thanks to Socialist/Ecologist agreement at 2012 French presidential election. Currently Minister of Housing in François Hollande Government

Not like the French handball champions who deserved a long holiday after their gold medal celebrated by getting drunk and devastating a TV studio where the were interviewed, neither like their national football team that has become the shame of France and laughing stock of the planet with or without playing, nor like their patriots who were not in London to support France at the Games, but are real red government carpet fans who got free tickets for the one way plane or train to London the Oympics as almost every French tax-exiled in England everybody in London …

Like the French President.

Well, well, well …

But not like the French Ecologists, whose boss is quite desperate at their annual 3-day meeting somewhere in the French countryside …

Not well, not well, not well …

… as he sees the naked Green France.

Well, well, well …

The Green France with glasses …

Well ?

… or without glasses …

Not well !

… or with glasses …

Well ?

… or without glasses …

Not well !

… or not decided about the glasses …

Well …

… or whatever works, with or without glasses …

Definitely not well …

… or whoever walks talking romance or talks walking romance all the time instead of working …

As well as can be …

France, so Green, so French, So Good, So Fresh … and hopefully back at work soon(er or later).

Never mind … it’s just Grass …

So French, so good : “growth is around the (French) corner and all lights are green” (but not vice-versa).

Green (Lights) at Work in Poitiers, August 22-24 … or so some French Believe (in Frenchology)

The Rocky Green Picture Show Must Go On

Some French believe, that red politicians with green glaze care for nature and environment, that France can afford driving German Panzers if the children ride small bicycles, and that their French water and Chinese solar energy are clean and free.

Frenchology at work …

Let them talk and believe what they want about ecology and whatever other legends : they have done so for decades, if not centuries, nobody cares and the world is neither a better, nor a worse place to live in just because the French people, French politicians, French unions, French Euro and French business people are and talk … so French.

To be or not to be (French ? Wrong ?), that is the question …

The trouble would be, if the French decided to escape from France. Fortunately enough, they know, that the problem is the French, not France, and that if they go elsewhere, where people speak French, it will most surely be the same story of student strikes, big energy companies and endless political discussing like in some parts of Canada (which they still believe to be smaller than France, mostly French speaking and waiting for newcomers from old, poor France), crazy soccer like everywhere around France except Germany (and nobody would go settle in Germany unless starving and German speaking, neither of which is very frequent in France unless at military war time), and Qatar owned hotels and golfs like in France but more expensive than in France. So the escaping French usually stay very close to French food, medicaid and borders, with a preference for French speaking parts of Geneva, Brussels and London, which explains why they have built fast, air-con trains going there (and back because dentists, wine and cheese are so much cheaper in France) and don’t threaten to invade the rest of the world, with the possible exception of Marrakech, but the French fast train is still under construction there and will not be connected to France unless Spain is at sale and France can afford to buy it and rebuild the railways (which are not the same width as in France), which seems very unlikely. So, if some French believe, or even say, France is green, just let them believe, or even talk,  as long as they stay, believe and talk in their Green France and don’t interfere with Euro(pe) issues, British Olympics, serious soccer, real business or banking regulations (as regards building cars, it doesn’t matter, soon they will build only German and Japanese  cars like everybody else in Europe).

No panic, it’s just (France) Grass

So French, so good : “growth is around the (French) corner and all lights are green”.

It’s Summertime in #Paris #France, at last !

Summertime in Paris is all the better, since there are a couple of season’s beaches along the Seine River and less cars. Besides, with or without climate change, the weather is just great theses days. Let’s enjoy it, as good as it is, and as long as it lasts.

Rio+20 : small steps by Mankind, no giant leap for #Green Earth

It could have been worse in Rio : the summit could have failed, truths could have been hidden, people could have stayed unheard, green economy could have been left aside. But one needs a lot of sense of humour to smile about the future we want.

Some French eBooks about climate and other ongoing changes.
