It is a conference of people who will not do anything because their careers depend on maintaining the status quo. Politicians have a maximum 5-year horizon and with an average of 2.5y their only interest is in getting re-elected. Kings have a longer horizon but they are either powerless (in a democracy) or corrupt. Businessmen have a legal duty to maximise shareholder returns. Climate "scientists" and protestors have a vested interest in continued problems, not solutions. The people who will suffer from the changing climate aren't born yet. So nobody inside or outside the meeting will do anything to mitigate the effect of the inevitable.
