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!

The UN CO2 Sting at ‘Concun’

Paul Newman in 'The Sting' A movie about a big con. Model for the UN?

Regardless of what happens, the UN and their fellow ‘warmers’ always report CO2 and temperature are breaking ‘records’ and are ‘unprecedented’. Blah! Blah! Blah!

If you’ve ever seen it, there’s a movie called ‘The Sting,” about a big con run by two guys to get revenge on an Irish mob boss back in the 1930’s. In my opinion, the UN and the ‘warmers’ appear to  have the same talents, only their con is on a a much larger (global) scale and will have not a good outcome as the movie, but will have a very bad outcome if they’re left to complete their nefarious goals.

The latest ‘warmer’ con, ‘conveniently’ timed to coincide with the Cancun Climate Conference, comes from (who else?) the United Nations. You can call it Cancon or Concun, the key is those three letters ‘con‘.

ABC News has an article titled ‘UN: Greenhouse Gas Concentrations at Record Level.” How alarmists can a title be? How ‘convenient’ this is put out the very day before the Cancun Climate Conference starts? If I were to believe, I might feel the need to hide in a bomb shelter after reading that headline. According to the article……

A report by the U.N. weather agency has found that greenhouse gas levels in the atmosphere reached record levels in 2009.

The World Meteorological Organization (‘conveniently’ part of the UN) says efforts to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide haven’t diminished the atmospheric concentration of these gases widely blamed for stoking global warming.

Ummm…..OK, but here’s an article from Examiner.com titled “Global warming: Can we make it 3 years in a row of declining CO2?” that notes that the CO2 levels declined (YES DECLINED!) 2.6% in 2009 and moreover, declined the previous two years (2008 and 2007). So why is the UN making a claim that 2009 was a record? Calling Pinocchio! Calling Pinocchio! According to the article……

The world’s CO2 emissions declined by 2.6% last year, with Spain apparently leading the charge, with reductions of 15%. The U.S. has had two years in a row of declining CO2, with a total of 10% decline over that period.

Here is another one from the Christian Science Monitor titled “Global warming: Carbon dioxide emissions worldwide fell in 2009.”

Industrial carbon-dioxide emissions, the driver behind a new round of global climate talks set to begin in Cancun, Mexico, Nov. 29, eased in 2009, according to a group of scientists monitoring atmospheric CO2.

Can you say oops? Sounds like the World Meteorological Organization is full of anthropogenic BS to me.

So, it’s here we go again. The United Nations and the ‘warmers’ are making dubious claims, ‘conveniently’ timed to coincide with a major climate conference in Cancun. The one that’s predicted to be a major fail before even starting. They’re a bunch of liars in my opinion, foisting con upon con upon the public about anthropogenic global warming. Per the below, the con they put out is exactly that.

An article from Business Report, titled ‘Emissions Calculations Are Clouded,’ shows us that no one’s really measuring CO2 and no one really knows what amounts of CO2, higher or lower, are in the atmosphere. Amazing but true.

Nisbet (Earth Science professor at University of London) says the world puts too much faith in government estimates of carbon dioxide, methane and other heat-trapping gases blamed for climate change. That’s because companies and countries base emissions calculations on the raw materials that go into a process; they don’t check the pollution coming out.

“It’s like going on a diet without weighing yourself,” says Ray Weiss, a geochemistry professor at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, whose article with Nisbet in an issue of Science argues for measuring the atmosphere.

So, what is being promoted by the UN and the ‘warmers’ is basically a fantasy and no one has any clue about what’s really out there. Not very scientific is it? It is mighty ‘convenient’ when it comes to exaggerating things when one is trying to get that big climate deal going though, doesn’t it? Remember, they have to motivate (read con) people to get anything accomplished. Without uber-climate-drama they’re not going to get the power and those billions and trillions of dollars they lust for.

Thus, the old adage, ‘follow the money,’ rears its ugly head again……

Today, $141 billion (R994bn) worth of credits that help countries meet their Kyoto goals change hands in global emissions markets. And business is booming in offsets, the right for countries and companies that pollute too much to claim credit for green projects elsewhere. All of these efforts rely on bottom-up calculations being accurate.

Much of that $141 billion that may go away if the Kyoto Treaty dies, or if they can’t get a new treaty to replace it. Those big investors like governments, banks and brokerage firms stand to lose billions if carbon trading schemes die like the Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX) already has. No treaty no trady, no billions, no trillions, no removing money from people’s wallets. Remember, in the end, the consumer (you) always pays the tab via increased prices or taxes……

Traders and regulators say Europe’s carbon market, called the Emissions Trading System, and the UN’s offset market, called the Clean Development Mechanism, are making a real dent in greenhouse emissions. From $570 million a year in 2004, the global carbon market may surge to as much as $1.4 trillion worth of deals by the decade’s end.

A ‘dent in greenhouse emissions?” It’s more like a dent in everyone’s global bank accounts! Face it, $1.4 trillion doesn’t only talk, it screams! It screams that the fraud called anthropogenic global warming needs to be perpetuated or some people just aren’t going to be as filthy rich as they want to be. There’s money to be made and no one’s there to double-check on what’s going on. You can wager that there’s going to be some rather ‘creative’ accounting going on. That old saying “figures don’t lie, but liars figure,” must have been specially tailored for the carbon trading business as it has already come into play.

Below are some more salient quotes about this from the article, showing just how preposterous the UN claims are……

  • Matthias Jonas, a physicist at Austria’s International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis says: ““All the emissions we’re accounting for so far under the Kyoto Protocol are based on what we think the atmosphere sees by standing on the ground”
  • Pieter Tans, Colorado-based senior scientist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says: “As soon as emissions become worth a lot of money, I start losing faith in self-reported numbers regardless of who signs off on them,” he says. “We need something more objective – like checking what’s actually appearing in the atmosphere
  • US Department of Energy staff scientist Gregg Marland says: “If somebody lies, somebody loses,” he says. “In a CO2 transaction, you can lie and both win. We’re going to create a situation where both sides can win by cheating
  • John Bosch, retired EPA says: “When it comes down to it, these estimates are all guesses

Well, there you have it. From the proverbial horse’s mouths comes the truth. The truth is, they don’t know how much CO2 is in the atmosphere. The truth is, that the parties involved self-report with no checks or balances, thus inviting fraud. The truth is, that both sides of a carbon deal can then win by cheating because no one’s checking. The truth is, that it’s all a big guess and they’re clueless. Yes, that certainly sounds like “the science is settled” to me!

What it really sounds like is that it’s a con-artist’s dream! Billions and trillions of dollars at stake in a global fraud that needs to be perpetuated to keep those billions and trillions rolling in. Bernie Madoff would certainly be proud of this scam and he’s probably sorry he’s missed out on the biggest con ever. According to this article at New England Organized Crime, even the Mafia are in on it. They have thus far ripped off carbon trading to the tune of $7.4 billion! Amazing because what you have is scammers ripping off scammers.  Talk about a criminal’s dream! Carbon trading has to be the be all to end all con of all time.

This makes me wonder even more about how anyone with half of a brain can buy into the con called anthropogenic global warming. More evidence of the fraud is that the warmers are now contradicting themselves because they can’t even keep track of all the lies, or who’s saying what. For a couple of examples you can read how we have global warming  now slowed by global warming and the fakery of claiming Pakistan’s monsoons and droughts are caused by global warming. I’d love to hook up lie detectors to some of these people. I wonder if the machines would blow up due to overload when the questions were answered?

As I keep saying, the ‘warmers’ and UN will claim that everything and anything that happens or doesn’t happen is caused by anthropogenic global warming and that we better tax ourselves to stop that evil CO2. The reality is that it’s not about climate change, it’s all about power and money. Still don’t believe it? Well, here’s a nice little article about how the climate talks in Cancun are about the money, not the climate…….

Facing another year without a global deal to curb climate change, the world’s nations will spend the next two weeks debating how to mobilize money to cope with what’s coming — as temperatures climb, ice melts, seas rise and the climate that nurtured man shifts in unpredictable ways.

Yes, they want to ‘mobilize’ your money out of your bank account and into their bank account, nothing more. Climate change, global warming, climate disruption or whatever term you prefer is only a lame excuse for the world’s largest fraud.

Want more? We even have Ottmar Edenhoer (an IPCC guy) who actually has big enough balls to blatantly admit it’s about the money and globalization, not climate change. From American Thinker we have an article that notes the following……

On Sunday, Ottmar Edenhofer, a German economist and IPCC Co-chair of Working Group III on Mitigation of Climate Change, told the Neue Zürcher Zeitung (translated that climate policy is redistributing the world’s wealth” and that “it’s a big mistake to discuss climate policy separately from the major themes of globalization.”

You can plainly see they desperately want power and riches. They will blatantly lie in order to generate enough panic to get the public to go along with their proclamation that man-made CO2 is the problem to make their nefarious goals come true.

Let them continue and the United States and all other sovereign nations will be no more than a name on a map. They will be shell countries with faux governments, run by the shills of the one-world dictatorship called the United Nations. It will be run by a select group of billionaires who will call the shots by dangling membership in the power and money club in front of all those bureaucrats they want to do their bidding.

Your life may be controlled by those members of the do as I say not as I do club such as Al Gore, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Maurice Strong, Bill Gates, James Cameron, George Soros and a long list of other wealthy hypocrites who want you to take the bus while they fly about in CO2 spewing private jets and tell you to live in a green constructed shack with no heat or air conditioning while they live in mansions.

This is the danger of CO2 Insanity. They will use their anthropogenically created CO2 Insanity to extract money from your bank account, enrich themselves further, gain global power so they can dictate the world’s every move. They will make Nazi Germany, Cuba, and the U.S.S.R., all combined, look like pikers.
