Global Warming Showdown: And Skeptics are Winning

kyoto_logo_1U.N. prepares for urgent battle to extract $100 billion from U.S.

By Michael F. Haverluck

The U.S. and other developed nations are reconsidering their commitments to fight global warming before the upcoming 17th Climate Change Conference in Durban, South Africa.

The United Nations wants representatives of world governments and international organizations to advance its agenda to fight climate change at Durban 2011. But despite Barack Obama’s full-fledged support for the green agenda early in his presidency, he has become increasingly hesitant to engage in some of the U.N.’s costly climate programs.

A major topic on the Durban agenda, Nov. 28 through Dec. 9, is the extension of the Kyoto Protocol. The agreement binds 37 developed nations to reduce greenhouse emissions from 1997 to 2012 through implementing regulations.

But doubts about global warming science, as well as the declining world economy, have contributed to many developed countries getting cold feet.

“Of the major players in the Kyoto Protocol, my sense is that the EU is the only one still considering signing up in some fashion to a second commitment period,” said U.S. Special Envoy for Climate Change Todd Stern while discussing Durban 2011 at a meeting on global warming in Mexico City. “Japan is clearly not, Russia is not, Canada is not and Australia appears unlikely.”

    This is what it is all about. Right here laid bare for all to see. This is what it has always been about, a worldwide money grab. Anthropogenic global warming was, from it’s inception, a device to part rich countries from billions of dollars.
    I think it is hillarious that they think Obama is buckeling to scepticism of climate change. He would give them the money in a heartbeat if he thought it would not weaken his already slim chance for re-election. To say he won’t because of scepticism is like saying he won’t stick his arm in a barrel full of parahnas because he doesn’t want to get his arm wet.

    Neill, I fully agree. It is all about money isn’t it? Screw the environment or absent the environment it’s called, Ka Ching, Ka Ching.!

  • Rob N. Hood

    Joe you speak about my nonsense and yet post your own… how do you explain that?

  • Kevin Hearle

    The reason for country’s to pause is that the Scientific and Political corruption at the UN’s IPCC is to much for the politicians to sell to the electorate. See “The Delinquent Teenager… by Donna Laframbiose”.When you can’t trust the organisation you have based your political response on then the game is over. The evidence is becoming clear as the real science (not the models that the IPCC relies on for its alarmist projections) becomes available. It shows that nature not Co2 is the main ingredient in climate change and hence the myth of AGW as the main cause is just that a myth. It is not that Skeptics are winning it is that the real science is emerging and tearing down the facade put up by the IPCC.

    The IPCC must go. It has been exposed as corrupt. Credibility of the organisation is zero. The IPCC had an oportunity to reform but it chose not to make change. The Durban Jambore should be its death nell. The IPCC has forced country after country to introduce taxation systems that have forced both fuel and economic poverty on taxpayers on the basis of false and manufactured science. The environmental left activists have been exposed and The Kyoto Protocol must also be disbanded.

    We must focus on what the real problems are in society (health, education, welfare and energy independence) and deal with real climate issues as they arise. Adaption is politically saleable Alarmism is not.

  • Joe

    Think about it.

    • Rob N. Hood

      I did (of course) and it is written very poorly, thus my problem with it. Also, it doesn’t really make that much sense, as a result of poor writing skills.

    Al Gore needs to return his undeserved prizes and the money he stole with his junk science based A INVONVENT TRUTH and the KYOTO TREATY needs to be run through a paper shredder along with every other UN treaty

    • NEIL F. AGWD/BSD

      That’ll never happen, but it’s good to dream once in a while.

  • Joe

    Nice try.

  • Joe

    My comment was made to Hood.

  • Rob N. Hood

    Ok red Joe or black Joe…. ??!! So mysterious…..!!!!! Maybe we’ll just call you Paul Wenum….

  • Joe

    Don’t ever assume my friend. You never know who you are talking to do you? Never forget that and I serious mean that. Who, by the way is this Wenum individual?

  • Rob N. Hood

    I serious mean it too!

  • Joe

    I’m waiting impatiently.

  • Rob N. Hood

    For what?

  • Joe

    With you I assume nothing really. Just banter that makes no sense.

  • Rob N. Hood

    Anti-social passive aggressiveness with borderline traits.

  • Joe

    Quit talking about yourself all the time. It is boring.

  • Rob N. Hood

    Goo bye Goober

  • Joe

    ‘goo bye goober’? Huh?

  • Joe

    Heh, RHood. Didn’t pay the rent? Miss the discourse when lucient.

  • Rob N. Hood

    Lucient is not a word. But hey other than that you’re a genius…

  • Joe

    You are back. Knew you would. Like Jason. Look it up. Obummer paying you good? Eh?

  • Rob N. Hood

    Had to… couldn’t help myself…. to leave you to your own devices is impossible. But not to worry yourself about it too much- one day probably soon I will have to end this stupid worthless addiction.

  • Joe

    Self fullfilling prophese.

  • Rob N. Hood

    That is a wiser and truer statment than you even know.

  • Joe

    Oh I do, unfortunately you never will. Check your spell check. Your statement is not correct.

  • Rob N. Hood

    Oh… gee you are so smart, and such a sharp spell checker. I’m sure envious of your all your previous error free communication… I am guilty of using slang. Sue me.

  • joe

    I could. Takes a stroke of a pen.

  • Rob N. Hood

    Wow. A not so veiled threat from a freedom loving right-wing Libertarian type. So surprising. I I I’m shocked.

  • Rob N. Hood

    And just wondering, too: Is there ANY hypocritical hole you won’t fall into?

  • Joe

    I trip daily and you?

  • Rob N. Hood

    I injest the lysergic acid much much less frequently.

  • Joe

    I trip on words, not drugs.

  • Rob N. Hood

    I work to keep personal hypocrisy to a minimum. Most other things are just normal foibles.

  • joe

    I see you are an expert at that.

  • Rob N. Hood

    Like I said- I work on it. Seems to me that all people should. It is a huge human flaw and causes a multitude of problems.

  • Joe

    Yes it does.

  • Rob N. Hood

    So you are posing as two Joes, or what? It’s odd and kinda creepy, just so you know. Not that you care- cuz if you are doing that, you are doing it for a purpose, whatever that may be.

  • Joe

    I have my purpose in life. And you?

  • Rob N. Hood

    To try and learn more about everything. Which is an infinitum of purpose. And you?

  • Joe

    The day Ii know all and can fix all is the day I pass. Neither I, nor you ever will. Rambling statements with no actual factual statements/facts behind them like the Global /climate change so called experts is an example. Now read over 1000 sciencietists are not backing global warming.

  • Rob N. Hood

    hmmmm…rambling statements with no factual facts…. sounds familiar somehow.
