Every New Years Day I reflect on the state of the world's Climate Change position. For many years I have noted the extensive use of quasi-religious language by climate activists. Followers of the hypothesis that man's responsible for so-called dangerous climate change are referred to as "believers"whilst doubters are often labelled "deniers", "sceptics" and even "heretics".
The public shaming and bullying of any scientist who differs from climate science orthodoxy is eerily reminiscent of a latter-day Salem Witch Trial or Spanish Inquisition with public "floggings" meted out metaphorically speaking for their thought crimes. Elements of the climate change movement are beginning to bear more resemblance to a religious cult than a scientific community. Dalliances with authoritarianism are never far from the fringes of the this metaphysical ideology. Environmentalism intends to radically change the world regardless of the consequences (at a cost of human lives and severe restrictions on individual freedom).
Last month's Durban Global Warming conference was a farce. It included over 14,570 "carpetbaggers" from dozens of organisations you'd never hear of otherwise, living on this gravy train, who came to settle once and for all a global strategy to curb carbon emissions that would reduce the world's warming (totally ignoring the Inconvenient Truth that temperatures haven't risen in 10 years!). All the major countries and the 10 Hollywood stars present succeeded in doing was to agree to agree to some 2020 reduction. Nothing was signed or committed to so it was a actually a dud, but that didn't end there. Now this is freaky. I've heard that the planet savers at this IPCC summit are working on a draft document that reads in part like the Bible of a new Green Faith. Here are the main points of this manifesto that are not just off-the-wall but are based on the obvious deification of the Earth (the Gaia hypothesis):
# A new International Climate Court will have the power to compel Western nations to pay ever larger sums to 3rd world countries in the name of paying for supposed "climate debt". The Court will have no power over 3rd world countries. Here and throughout the draft the West is the sole target. This Bible is irredeemably anti-Western.
# Rights of Mother Earth: to ensure respect for the intrinsic laws of nature with subheadings that have been written by feeble-minded green activists and environmental extremists.
# Right to survive: The draft childishly asserts that "people have a right to survive the treats and impacts of climate change, including sea level rise (even though the latest satellite shows the sea-level has actually dropped over the past 3 years).
# War and the maintenance of defence forces and equipment are to cease, just like that...because they contribute to climate change. Like that's really going work!
# A new global temperature target will aim to limit global warming to as little as 1 C above pre-industrial levels. Since the temperature is already 3 C above that level what is being proposed is a 2C cut which would literally take us halfway back towards the last Ice Age and would kill hundreds of millions. Colder is far more dangerous than warmer. Dumb and dumber!
# The new CO2 emissions target for Western countries only, will be a reduction of up to 50% in emissions over the next 8 years and of "more than 100%" (these words actually appear in the text) by 2050! So, no motor cars, no coal-fired or gas-fired power stations, no aircraft, no trains. It's back to the Middle Ages, but without even the right to light a fire in your hovel. "Renewables" are the alternative energy sources mentioned without one word of the need for rapid expansion of carbon-free nuclear power worldwide to prevent near-total economic destruction.
#The West will pay for everything, because of its "historical responsibility" for causing global warming. Third world countries will not be obliged to pay anything. But it is the U.N. not the 3rd world countries, that will get the money from the West. There is no provision anywhere in this Bible for the U.N. to publish accounts of how it has spent the $100 billion a year the draft demands that the Western countries should fork over from now on.
The Way I See It...my hopes, after the 12 years of intimately researching and writing about the global warming alarmism and the eco-facist green movement fueling it, were that it would be exposed for what it really is by now. I am somewhat encouraged that it is slowly happening with more and more scientists willing to say and write about their doubts about the need to fear temperature rise and its dubious linkage to CO2 levels. My further hope is that political leaders of Western countries see the writing on the wall and what awaits them and their citizens if they sign up or even give credence to this Green bullshit Bible and its anti-human ideology. I wonder....what is it about "GREEN" that make it synonymous with "STUPID'' ?
