Lord Monckton on Concun

 

Concun: A few clowns short of a circus.

Well here’s Lord Monckton’s take on Concun. Vini vidi vici? Probably not the last one, but he did go and he did see the circus show about anthropogenic global warming. The two biggest items in the press about him were that he admitted global warming was real and that he was thrown out of a meeting. From the Telegraph we get this, from the horse’s mouth even……

 

Another headline last week shrieked that Viscount Monckton had admitted global warming is happening. Again, where’s the perspective? The author had aimed to suggest that if even a notorious recusant was now confessing, in the words of Dr Heinz Kiosk, that “We Are All Guilty”, no one could deny that “global warming” is, like, I mean, jolly bad stuff, man.

Nice try, but no. Four years ago, I wrote in the Sunday Telegraph that: “There are more greenhouse gases in the air than there were, so the world should warm a bit, but that’s as far as the consensus goes.”

Yes, there is a greenhouse effect. Yes, CO2 contributes to it. Yes, it causes warming. Yes, we emit CO2. Yes, warming will result. But not a lot.

While I’m at it, I wasn’t “forced to leave a high-level business summit” in Cancun, either. The organisers, Climate Change Ltd, said they would take my $1000 entrance fee provided that, unlike other paying delegates, I raised no points from the floor: they said only believers in man-made apocalypse could speak up.

See? Blown out of proportion by the MSM. The real story is in the last paragraph above, that he would effectively have his mouth duct-taped if he stayed. Sounds like the warmers, you can only speak if you agree, otherwise STFU! Heaven forbid we should entertain anything but the gospel of global warming as handed down by Reverend Gore.

See why I called it a circus? It’s run by clowns and for the most part attended by clowns, but it was a few clowns short of a circus wasn’t it?

Concun: The ‘Let’s Make a Deal’ show is over!

Monty Hall would have been impressed by this train wreck of a deal

Now that the Concun Climate Conference is over we have everyone scurrying about telling us that a big ‘deal’ was made. They got no extension of Kyoto, no new treaty, nothing legally binding. Basically what has come out of Concun is the only kind of real global warming we have, which is hot air from the United Nations abetted by the lamestream media and some so-called scientists. So, what did they con everyone out of? Oh, only a $100 billion transfer of wealth per annum, that’s all. Sounds way better than anything that was ever behind door #1, #2 or #3 on the TV show ‘Let’s Make a Deal.’

It seems to me that every time they worry about climate change it cost us money. Hundred’s of millions of dollars may be transferred to so-called ‘poorer’ countries from the so-called ‘wealthy’ counties under the guise of saving them all from global warming. Never you mind about the 56 million people who die annually from real problems like AIDS, Cancer, smoking, heart disease, starvation and other things! We need hundreds of millions of dollars to prevent non-existent anthropogenic global warming! Never mind about those other people who die, they don’t count!

I bet that dictators around the globe are probably having a big celebration today because they’re on the verge of the biggest screw job since Bernie Madoff. They’ll be getting money for nothing that will have little or no controls over its dispersal. Want to place a bet about how much of this will actually go to climate related things vs. how much will end up in numbered Swiss bank accounts? I bet Las Vegas wouldn’t give you odds on that one.

Below are some comments from a Telegraph article about this so-called ‘deal,’ aka gigantic screwjob. I’ve placed my comments below their comments in bold italic, highlighting how this is a big con job from Concun.

What has been achieved?

Campaigners claim it has placed UN talks back on track after the disaster at Copenhagen. Countries agreed a ‘balanced package’ that will keep temperature rise below 2C (3.6F).

It stops short of a legal treaty, but commits all countries to cutting emissions for the first time under the UN.

So, basically, about 15,000 people, who spewed carbon getting to/from and while there, didn’t get jack shit. Many of them did sign up to ban DHMO though, bless their little pea brains.

How did they do it?

Haunted by the Copenhagen summit, the host country Mexico tried to focus on areas of agreement instead of seeking an ambitious full treaty.

It also insisted on transparency rather than closed-door talks among major powers. This and an unrelenting positive mood made it difficult for trouble makers to complain.

So, we have Mexico, a country now run by drug cartels, trying to tell the whole world how we should do things. Talk about some big cojones, that about takes the cake in my book. Note the ‘agreement instead of ambitious full treaty,’ which means they already knew this was DOA before they got there.

How will countries cut emissions?

More than 80 countries, including the US, EU and China, put forward voluntary emissions cuts in Copenhagen. These have now been made a formal agreement under the UN process.

Yes, a formal agreement that isn’t legally binding, but never mind that, they had to come up with something to justify all those Pina Coladas and parties.

How will emissions be measured?

China has always been uncomfortable about having its emissions measured by the outside world, claiming only rich countries that can afford the technology should be monitored.

However the US has insisted it is only fair that all countries are exposed to the same amount of scrutiny.

In an uneasy compromise the two superpowers have agreed that it is only fair that the world’s biggest emitters agree to international standards to measure their carbon.

So, we’re now up to an agreement that’s not legally binding, where no one’s in agreement about who’s going to measure emissions, or how they’ll be measured. From what I see of China no one will ever measure their CO2 anyway. They’ll keep on pumping out pollution while collecting money and laugh all the way to the bank.

What has the Kyoto Protocol got to do with it?

The Kyoto Protocol commits rich countries to cutting emissions. It was very important to developing countries that targets in the treaty are extended beyond 2012 because it is currently the only legal climate change agreement the world has.

However rich countries are nervous of committing to the treaty as it does not include China or the US.

In the end a compromise was found where the Kyoto Protocol will be continued, but targets for emissions cuts do not need to be decided until all countries makes cuts.

It is hoped that eventually the Kyoto Protocol will be continued as part of a legal treaty that commits all countries to cutting emissions.

The reality is the Kyoto Protocol has absolutely nothing to do with it. Re-read the above if you didn’t get it.  We have “In the end a compromise was found where the Kyoto Protocol will be continued, then the next line says “It is hoped that eventually the Kyoto Protocol will be continued.” So which is it? I’d say that since we don’t have a legally binding agreement that the Kyoto Protocol is deader than a doornail and now has nothing to do with anything.

What does it mean for the UK?

Britain has already committed to cutting emissions by 34 per cent by 2020 under domestic law. But the Government has promised to increase this to 42 per cent if there is a global deal, which is now looking increasingly likely.

It means nothing for the UK. They’re already in the process of committing economic suicide and don’t need any help from the UN. Their government already needs to be committed to an insane asylum. I think those student riots are merely the beginning of a pissed-off British population who are figuring out that their government has bankrupted their country, one that was once one of the richest on the planet.

Is there any money on the table?

Countries have agreed to set up a £60 ($100bn) per annum ‘Green Climate Fund’ from 2020 to help poor countries adapt to climate change.

It could also help developing countries, including India and China, develop green energy like wind turbines and solar panels. The UK will be expected to contribute around £1.5bn per annum towards the fund.

Ahh, the heart of the matter – MONEY! Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! Let’s see India and China are “developing” countries? Hmmmmm…according to Wikipedia, based upon GDP, in 2009 China was the 3rd largest economy and India was the 11th. But never you mind that! They ‘desperately’ need some of those hundreds of millions you know. They’re ‘poor’ you know. The 3rd largest economy in the world being considered as a ‘poor,’ ‘developing country,’ should tell you about all you need to know about how insane this agreement is.

How will it stop deforestation?

Deforestation causes a fifth of global emissions so protecting trees is claimed to be key step in mitigating global warming.

A new fund called Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation or REDD will be set up that will pay poor nations not to chop down trees.

The text includes safeguards to make sure the scheme respects the rights of indigenous people and biodiversity.

Language around carbon markets has been left deliberately vague so it is possible in the future for businesses to make money from ‘carbon offsetting’.

Wetlands will also be protected by allowing countries to offset carbon by protecting peatland such as the Yorkshire Moors.

Evidently they don’t care about global emissions causes 1-2-3-4, just #5. Oh, and you can bet that new fund will also come with a herd of new bureaucrats who will be overpaid by the UN. Those ‘safeguards’ are merely another way for them to come back for more money later because they won’t have enough, they never do. Also, note that ‘vague’ language remark that leaves the door wide open for businesses to screw more money out of this ‘deal.’ Peatland? WTF’s up with that? A way of throwing a bone to the morons who run the UK?

Why is Bolivia so angry?

The Plurinational State of Boliva believes that any UN agreement should ‘protect the rights of Mother Earth’.

The South American country believes that the targets are not strong enough to stop catastrophic climate change and signing up to a deal would be ‘tantamount’ to genocide. They are threatening to keep fighting within the UN process for a stronger deal.

You can bet the real problem is that it’s ‘tantamount’ to moneycide. They would have been able to screw more money out of this deal if they got what they wanted, they didn’t, so they’re pissed off. No Swiss bank accounts for them!

Anything else controversial?

Saudi Arabia won the right to get climate change subsidies for developing ‘clean’ coal, oil or gas. Carbon capture and storage or CCS takes the carbon emissions from fossil fuels and stores it under ground.

So, one of the oil countries selling billions of oil also needs subsidies? Wow! they must be ‘poor’ like the Chinese are! Well, I guess sooner or later they’ll run out of oil and have tons of leftover holes under their useless sand to sequester CO2 in. They have to keep those fleets of private jets, palaces and Rolls Royce’s going you know, not to mention the price of those gold-plated toilets is rising. May as well let the suckers, I mean infidels,  pay for their research and development.

Who are the heroes and villains?

Japan came out as an early villain after refusing to sign up to a second period of the Kyoto Protocol but was persuaded to compromise.

By the end of the conference Bolivia was the trouble maker refusing to sign up the deal because they claimed it was too weak to keep temperature rise below 2C.

Mexico has been the hero throughout, with one delegate describing the President Patricia Espinosa as a ‘goddess’ for guiding the talks so well.

The UK Government has been praised for leading efforts to find a compromise on the Kyoto Protocol.

Naughty naughty Japan, refused to sign something that’s retarded so they’re labeled a ‘villain.’ Bolivia is only a ‘trouble maker’ because they raised a stink because El Leader won’t get as fat of a Swiss bank account. Mexico is a ‘hero?’ The same Mexico who’s overrun with drug cartels? The same Mexico with the corrupt government who wants to tell everyone else how to run their country while their own turns into a steaming pile of shit? The suicidal UK government gets ‘praised’ for being, ummm….suicidal? Something wrong with this picture, it’s warped, very warped. Especially when you look at what they consider ‘poor’ countries to be, which means that the real ‘poor’ countries will get little or nothing out of this ‘deal.’

Will this save the planet?

Not yet. The latest scientific analysis suggests that the pledges currently on the table will only get the world 60 per cent of the way towards the emissions cuts that are hoped will keep global temperatures rising by more than 2C this century. However the deal agrees that ambitious must be increased.

All this and it won’t save the planet? There’s nothing to ‘save’ it from and you can damn well bet that they will alway need more money to ‘save the planet’ because this is about greed, power, control and the redistribution of wealth, nothing more, nothing less. Climate change is merely the excuse du jour.

Is this really a success?

Yes, after Copenhagen there were fears that the UN process would collapse. It is embarrassing for the UN not to have a full consensus but the agreement of every country except Bolivia still makes it a very strong agreement. Even though the deal is not legally binding it puts in place decisions that will help the world draw up a new treaty in the future.

Success? Let’s see, no new legally binding treaty, no extension of the Kyoto Protocol, but it’s a success? That’s a pretty piss-poor idea of ‘success’ if you ask me. I guess it’s a ‘success’ because they think they’ll be getting $100 billion dollars to pretty much do with as they please with little or no control over who gets what. Talk about’pork!’ Not to mention I bet the mafia is salivating already as they have already had the ‘success’ of ripping off the EU carbon trading scheme for a mere 7 billion Euros.

What happens next?

The world now has a year to resolve any outstanding issues over the final form of a legal treaty that commits the world to binding targets. There are high hopes this could happen in a UN meeting in Durban, South Africa next year.

However, a deal will need America to up its target which is unlikely while there is a Republican Senate.

So there you  have it. No legal treaty, no Kyoto Protocol, no nothing. They’ll have to wait until Durban to try to get this ripoff extended so they can complete the con game. They do have it right that with a Republican Senate this is already a dead horse and will justifiably remain that way. Hopefully by then more people will awaken to the scam and put it to a halt before further financial damage is done.

You can bet that if this scheme doesn’t pan out that the UN will find another ’emergency’ to be used to extract billions of dollars. I bet they’re already scheming as I type.

Yet more CO2 Insanity!

There’s a dumbass born every minute

Watch this and tell me P.T. Barnum wasn’t right when he said “there’s a sucker born every minute?” Nowadays it appears to me that perhaps when it comes to the ‘warmer’s at Cancun we need a change to “there’s a dumbass born every minute.”

I wonder if they want to see the Egress?

Dr. Richard Gierak: Global warming not caused by humans

If the Maldives are sinking then who'd want to buy a resort there?

This is an interesting take on why global warming and cooling are a natural process via an article by the same title in the Siskiyou Daily. More evidence of CO2 Insanity running amok with regards to global warming.

Global warming advocates have attempted to blame rising planetary temperatures on human activity. The following will demonstrate that we are looking at a natural planetary cycle where carbon dioxide is rising in the atmosphere due to ocean warming, volcanic activity and earthquake data, which all correlate with each other.

You can read the whole article at the source below. However there is one comment I find of particular interest about sea-levels, especially since we’re subjected to almost daily rants due to the Cancun Climate Conference about all these disappearing islands like the Maldives.

It has been touted that the oceans are rising to new heights based on melting of glaciers; however, the following press release from NASA is of interest:

PASADENA, Calif. (UPI) – (Sept. 2010) NASA says new images from its Jason-2 oceanography satellite shows the tropical Pacific has switched from El Niño warm conditions to La Niña cool conditions.

“The central equatorial Pacific Ocean could stay colder than normal into summer and beyond,” said oceanographer and climatologist Bill Patzert at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif. “That’s because sea level is already about 4 inches below normal, creating a significant deficit of the heat stored in the upper ocean. The next few months will reveal if the current cooling trend will eventually evolve into a long-lasting La Niña situation.”

Patzert said a La Niña is essentially the opposite of an El Niño and is associated with less atmospheric moisture, resulting in less rain along the coasts of North and South America. La Niñas also tend to increase the number of tropical storms in the Atlantic.

So in less than a year the Pacific has gone from El Nino warm to La Nina cool and the sea-level of the Pacific Ocean has dropped 4 inches. A trend that will probably continue as the ocean cools due to the La Nina condition.

So, we appear to have more information that leads to the conclusion that the Maldives won’t be sinking any time soon. I guess that’s why they’re trying to promote buying resorts there. If they were really sinking who’d want to make an investment like that besides Captain Nemo? Furthermore, if they’re sinking, then why the hell are they spending $78 million to expand their airport? Hmmmmm? I have to question if global warming isn’t just a good excuse for them to get free billions from the UN, most of which probably come from the US.

OOPS! Glaciers increasing per UN

More truth that is stranger than the IPCC’s, UN’s and warmer’s fiction. From the Telegraph we get this headline ‘Cancun climate change summit: glaciers increasing despite climate change.’ Yes, that’s right, we keep hearing about all these glaciers that are melting away any second now due to anthropogenic global warming, yet here we have glaciers that are increasing in size. Must be more of that cooling that’s caused by warming which seems in violation of the laws of thermodynamics to say the least.

Glaciers have grown in western Norway, New Zealand’s South Island, parts of Asia and the Tierra del Fuego in South America.

Of course the powers that be have to try to minimize this finding with their usual BS.

However, overall ice and snow on mountains has been retreating since the industrial age, according to scientists from around the world.

In some regions, it is very likely that glaciers will largely disappear by the end of this century, whereas in others ice cover will persist but in a reduced form for many centuries to com

Actually they’ve been retreating since the last ice-age was over thousands of years ago, but don’t let real science get in the way of a good line of bullshit about how global warming’s going to turn the South Pole into Lower Miami any day now.

This report underlines a global trend, observed over many decades now in some parts of the globe, which has short and long-term implications for considerable numbers of people….

Yes it underlines a ‘global trend’ alright. The ‘global trend’ of anthropogenic bullshit about anthropogenic global warming. Yet more CO2 Insanity.

Obama trying to transfer 1.5% of US GDP to UN for climate change.

I heard this on Rush Limbaugh this morning while driving back from an appointment.  He cited Roy Spencer and Lord Monckton reporting that the Obama Administration is cutting a backroom deal with the UN to give them 1.5% of our GDP to fight non-existent anthropogenic climate change. I’ll put a link up to this tomorrow when the show is available, or you can go to his website tomorrow and hear for yourself what was said on today’s show. Edit: Here’s a link to the notes, here’s a link to listen, but you have to sign up.

While this should be ratified by Congress ala the Kyoto Treaty, it sounds like Obama is going to try and do an end-run around Congress and do this via executive order. I sincerely hope people like Jim Inhofe are not asleep at the switch and head this off before it starts sucking US bank accounts dry. It appears the ‘sting‘ continues.

With the current deficit we certainly don’t need to be throwing dollars at non-existent problems when there are real ones to be dealt with right here in the good old USA.  Moreover, we already provide the corrupt institution known as the United Nations with more money than any other country and now this bonehead wants to give them more based on curing a problem that isn’t man caused and doesn’t exists.

According to the CIA World Factbook, the GDP of the United States for 2009 was about $14.12 trilliion, or $46,000 dollars per person. One percent of $14.12 trillion is $141 billion dollars or $460 per person. According to Yahoo Finance about 47% of the population of the US didn’t pay income taxes in 2009. So basically you people who work for living can double the $460 to $920 of your hard-earned dollars.

Our government already give the blood-sucking UN more than enough money and in my book we should be cutting our contributions, not increasing them. Frankly they should boot them out of New York City and let them go off to some ‘nice’ place like Iran or North Korea.

It was freely admitted this conference isn’t about climate, it’s about the transfer of money or redistribution of wealth from so-called wealthy nations to poor nations under the guise of climate change. It’s also about power. This needs to be stopped now.  I would urge you contact your Congress person and let them hear or read your vituperation about this asinine idea before it’s too late.  Burning up the switchboard (202-456-1414. FAX: 202-456-2461) at the White House  or contacting them via the internet wouldn’t hurt either.

UN Fiddles, Africa Dies

About 15,000 useless bureaucrats are whooping it up in Cancun, Mexico this week at the Cancun Climate Conference. No doubt blowing money like drunken sailors while trying to come up with more phony bullshit ways to screw the globe out of money to solve non-existent anthropogenic global warming.

If you’ve been reading the headlines lately, they no doubt at least have the mainstream media convinced that the bazillion things they claim are caused by or will cause climate change are real and we’re all gonna die any decade now  either by roasting to death or being flooded. Every day there is article after article about their faux science.

Meanwhile, while they waste millions and billions of dollars on a non-existent problem, there’s a real one that they and the mainstream media seem to ignore.  A problem that is real and really does kill real people and not the imagined potential deaths they like to tout in an effort to scare everyone out of money.

While they sit and worry about climate change causing problems in Africa because it will create droughts and ruin the farming business, they completely ignore the fact that…….

Sub-Saharan Africa is more heavily affected by HIV and AIDS than any other region of the world. An estimated 22.5 million people are living with HIV in the region – around two thirds of the global total. In 2009 around 1.3 million people died from AIDS in sub- Saharan Africa and 1.8 million people became infected with HIV. Since the beginning of the epidemic 14.8 million children have lost one or both parents to aids.

How the fraud of global warming can go on and how these people can blow millions of dollars on a convention about possible deaths and totally and completely ignore this is beyond my comprehension.

Imagine the cost of 15,000 people flying to/from Cancun, the costs of hotel rooms, parties, food and drink and what that could do to help prevent real people from dying in a real crisis?

Shame on all of the bureaucrats at Cancun. Oh, and while I’m ranting, just imagine what the carbon footprint of this conference must be? No doubt astronomical.

More CO2 Insanity, brought to you by the do as I say and not as I do crowd. If they were really serious they’d teleconference and stay the hell home and donate the money to cure AIDS.

Yes, let’s all  party while another 1.3 million or so real people die this year while we worry about problems that don’t exists.
