As the Mainstream Media works feverishly to ignore the fraud of Global Warming because the greatness of “Hope and Change” in Copenhagen is coming…
Amid all this junk science, Coca-Cola has another campaign under way and, with other corporate biggies like Siemens and SAP, the software giant, has created an Internet campaign and Web site, Hopenhagen.com, designed to enlist support for a climate deal to be reached in the very cold city of Copenhagen in December.
A petition on the site urges support for “developing countries’ adaptation efforts and secure climate justice for all.” It’s based on the theory that Western nations, particularly the U.S., owe the world a “climate debt” for starting the Industrial Revolution and plundering the world’s fossil fuels in the name of unbridled capitalism.
“The world needs a Green New Deal,” declares a pocket guide to Hopenhagen’s goals put out by the World Wide Fund for Nature, the group with the cuddly panda as its icon. That deal involves a global climate change fund into which rich countries pour money for “green” improvements in poorer nations.
The WWF guide says the Green New Deal “will be based on the polluter-pays principle, on the historically high emissions of developed nations and on the capacity of the rich nations to help the poor. And we will all benefit from this North/South ‘burden sharing.'” To us, this sounds like the old Marxist principle of to each according to his need, from each according to his ability, with a guilty conscience thrown in for good measure.(IBD)
From the “News” section of Hopenhagen.com:
Farmers who cut and burn trees in Brazil’s part of the Amazon River Basin cause less environmental destruction, than rich Western nations have done in the past, the Brazilian President says.
So the slash and burn of the Amazon Rain Forest that the environmentalists have been screaming about for decades is nothing compared to the Global Warming cause by Greedy Rich Western Nations. 🙂
If you follow the link it goes, unsurprisingly to the Copenhagen UN Global Warming website:
Brazil’s president said Thursday that “gringos” should pay Amazon nations to prevent deforestation, insisting that rich Western nations have caused much more past environmental destruction than the loggers and farmers who cut and burn trees in the world’s largest tropical rain forest.
President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva made the comments just before an Amazon summit in which delegates signed a declaration calling for financial help from the industrial world to halt the deforestation that causes global warming.
“I don’t want any gringo asking us to let an Amazon resident die of hunger under a tree,” Silva said. “We want to preserve, but they will have to pay the price for this preservation because we never destroyed our forest like they mowed theirs down a century ago.”
In Brazil, the word “gringo” does not only mean American, but generally refers to anyone from the northern hemisphere.
This would be the same President who just met with Iran‘s Dictator-in-Chief Ahmadinejad was scheduled to sign trade deals with President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva before visiting Congress and speaking at a university in Brasilia.
He also said the two nations believe that the international order should be revised.(Tehran Times)
So fork it over America, you greedy pigs!
IBD: Average Joe noticed how Al Gore and other Democratic politicians were quick to capitalize on the matter, even before the scientific community could speak with a unified voice on the issue.
He figured out, correctly, that politics rather than science was the force that put global warming on the front pages of the newspapers and on television every night.
And that the religion of “the consensus” continues.
“The Consensus” doesn’t want to hear anything that endangers it.
And “The Consensus” can be very partisan.
Liberal Think Tank Environmentalist to the Stars (like Al Gore), Joe Romm:
It will be no surprise to learn the central point of their essay, ironically titled “Dangerous Assumptions” is “Enormous advances in energy technology will be needed to stabilize atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations at acceptable levels,” which is otherwise known as the technology trap or the standard “Technology, technology, blah, blah, blah” delayer message developed by Frank Luntz and perfected by Bush/Lomborg/Gingrich.
In other words, the Nature article was not what it claimed to be. It wasn’t an analysis suggesting that the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change should revisit its assumptions about decarbonization. It wasn’t an argument for stronger technology policies. No, it was a devious Republican message – one designed by Republican pollster Frank Luntz during the Bush years – to delay action.

Do you get the impression I do,that if you’re a liberal, if you’re toaster burns your toast in the morning it was because it was made by a Republican just to piss them off! 🙂
Everything is political.
And thus, if the Truth is truly Inconvenient it must be hidden.
In The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, Arthur Dent asks why the his house must be destroyed for a bypass only to find out that the plans for this were posted:
Arthur: “Oh yes, well, as soon as I heard I went straight round to see them, yesterday afternoon. You hadn’t exactly gone out of your way to call attention to them, had you? I mean, like actually telling anybody or anything.”
“But the plans were on display…”
“On display? I eventually had to go down to the cellar to find them.”
“That’s the display department.”
“With a flashlight.”
“Ah, well, the lights had probably gone.”
“So had the stairs.”
“But look, you found the notice, didn’t you?”
“Yes,” said Arthur, “yes I did. It was on display on the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying ‘Beware of the Leopard.’”
So, no it’s time to brave the Leopard and see for yourself about the Bypass being built on your backs in Copenhagen.
And then, one is left to wonder why they felt the need to rig the game in the first place, if their science is as robust as they claim. If there’s an innocent explanation for that, we’d love to hear it.
But I fear, it’s just more burnt toast.
Brave the Leopard!
