MARIANO Rajoy has hailed the ‘historic’ Paris Climate Change Conference agreement.

The Spanish leader also praised his former PP colleague, the European Commissioner for Climate Change and Action, Miguel Arias Cañete.

The 195 participating countries have agreed to limit the rise in average global temperatures to ‘well below’ 2°C, or 1.5°C if possible.

The agreement doesn’t state how much each country should cut their emissions by, although from 2018 onwards countries have to submit individual targets every five years.

“I am satisfied by the historic Climate Change Agreement #COP21. The leadership of Miguel Arias Cañete was vital to achieve this. Great work,” Rajoy tweeted.

  1. The only thing this conference has achieved is an increase in global warming from all the hot air expended, because, for sure, nothing else will come of it.

  2. You’ve got to laugh.

    “The 195 participating countries have agreed to limit the rise in average global temperatures to ‘well below’ 2°C, or 1.5°C if possible.”

    As if anyone can control the planets temperatures to within such levels. They speak as if they are gods. All total nonsense. Truth is that nobody knows what is happening to the planet, or even indeed how the planet even works. Humans have only been on Earth for a few seconds in relative terms to its overall age. Enjoy it while you can.
