A Bad Idea that Won’t Die

But few expect the meeting, which formally begins Friday, to accomplish much beyond simply patching up some of the bitter divisions that emerged in the Danish capital last December when the biggest environmental summit in history came within a hair’s breadth of collapsing entirely.
“It is important to rebuild confidence in the process,” said Yvo de Boer, the UN’s top climate official.
Officially, the three-day meeting in Bonn is meant to come up with an agenda for talks for the rest of the year, leading up to another major climate conference that begins in Cancun in November.
Unofficially, the Bonn agenda’s most important role may be to ensure that the disappointment of Copenhagen doesn’t unravel into a noisy clash over who was to blame.
I hope the climate blogs get some points for this. Certainly recent polls at tAV showed that climategate increased skepticism over global warming. In my opinion, it doesn’t matter whether global warming is three times worse than everything these UN charlatans say. The solution they are trying to impose is far, far worse than the problem.
They are charlatans too, not because they don’t believe every piece of wildly exaggerated and even fabricated evidence presented by the IPCC, but because they don’t give one single iota of a care about a real solution. They want your money, they want control over how you use it, and they want it to improve their own personal small minded, hubris filled, narcissistic existences. If they start forcing me to send tax dollars to for communist countries to install windmills, I might have to stop paying taxes. Cap and trade –scam, mileage standards-scam, carbon tax- scam, paying communist countries for carbon output – scam. The third world communist dictatorships don’t even make any damned carbon but that doesn’t matter, we need to send our money there.
I can only take so much of the lies by these authoritarian charlatans.
Maybe Greenpeace was right, we need an army of lawbreakers who will stand up to the evil progressive thieves masquerading as politicians. Naw, too much energy, people just need to get smarter about how they vote while they’re still allowed to have their own non-government sanctioned thoughts.
Just to make sure that you get just how insane these progressives are, we shouldn’t forget ‘meatless Monday’. In a bankrupt city nearly a half BILLION in debt, with more regulation and services than any real people will ever need, SanFransisco passed a non-binding resoution for Meatless Monday!!! (booming voice)
Here’s the title from the ‘healthy living’ section of the examiner.
In 2006, a UN report concluded that the production and eating of meat contributes to climate change:
The report calls the livestock sector a “major player” in affecting climate change through greenhouse-gas production. The FAO found that the ranching and slaughter of cows and other animals generates an estimated 18 percent of total human-induced greenhouse-gas emissions globally.
Greenhouse gases – such as methane, carbon dioxide and nitrous oxide – are linked to global warming.
Livestock emit methane and other greenhouse gasses through excrement and belching. The FAO estimates that cow manure and flatulence generate 30 to 40 percent of total methane emissions from human-influenced activities.
As demand for meat grows, the report explains, so does the need for pasture and cropland, making deforestation an additional concern; currently, according to the report, the livestock sector occupies 30 percent of ice-free land on the planet. Extensive grazing also takes a toll on arable land.
Damn, people really are that stupid….
yay humans!! Nice work – BTW, stay away from the pot.
