Those who were in Cancun last week at the UN’s Climate Summit spent the week complaining about the “carbon footprints” of human beings. It’s unfortunate that some of them hold diplomatic offices in high places. Telegraph articles of the event were filled with outrageous claims.
We’re not making these headlines up, and I included links as proof. Check these out…
- Cancun Talks Start With a Call to the Gods (and they call us “deniers”)
- The Uncertainties of Global Warming: Sea Level Could Rise in North, Fall in South (how convenient of a position)
- Are We Freezing Because of Global Warming?
We spent the entire 2009-10 school year studying the environment. Cynthia and Lydia were debate partners, and I had the privilege of publishing the best-selling debate briefs on the year’s topic of environmental policy. Needless to say, I wish these high school debaters were in charge, for they apparently know much more about environmental policy than our elected officials.
Ordinary parents (perhaps like you) don’t know (nor care to know) about environmental science. Much like politicians, ordinary folks simply believe what the experts tell them. Problem is, experts have been exposed as frauds, some blatantly knowing their false claims yet continuing to promote them. Even in the Telegraph article, there is another article in its very sidebar titled “Climate change leader knew about false glacier claims before Copenhagen.” It reveals that Rajendra Pachauri, leader of the IPCC, knew for two months of the false claims that his very program was making. Yet he is still promoting for absurd changes!
Here’s a list of the mandates quoted straight from the article:
- “Halt economic growth in the rich world over the next twenty years.”
- “Drastic change in lifestyles for many people.”
- “A rationing system similar to the one introduced during the last “time of crisis” in the 1930s and 40s.”
- “A limit on electricity so people are forced to turn the heating down, turn off the lights and replace old electrical goods like huge fridges with more efficient models.”
Here’s the catch-22 of these UN positions: The complexity of the science allows faulty claims to go unchecked. Laymen—hardworking moms and dads who simply want to raise their children—have little time to expose faulty science. So they take the experts at their word.
Despite the public disclosure of purposely covering up faulty science (even hacking e-mails that displayed the vulgar abuse of scientific data), these so-called scientists continue in control of our highest global offices.
Heaven had the last laugh, though. The UN Summit dealt with some of the coldest temperatures in its history. Check out beautiful — but cold — Cancun!
