In 2005, the United Nations Eco-alarmist Division predicted that by 2010 global warming would “displace 50 million coastal inhabitants around the world.” Rising sea levels, diminishing water-tables, and – New Word Alert! – “desertification” would make homeless the equivalent of eight New York Cities…. Folks, it was going to be BAD…. Millions dead. MASS starvation. There was even a rumor that Al Gore would have to turn down the heat in his Olympic-size swimming pool 1 degree centigrade for an hour.
Unfortunately, the U.N.E.D. couldn’t control the Calendar…. 2010 arrived and with it: REALITY.
Crunching numbers (confirmed by census data, satellite imagery, and the proliferation of coastal bars in Moorea), fact-checkers found math effective in illustrating why shortly after midnight on New Year’s Eve (12-31-9), the U.N. scrubbed its page.
50,000,000 – 50,000,000 = 0
Oops…. In a rational world, that would be that; every zealot that pushed this charade would be so throughly discredited that he/she/he-she would be relegated to pursuits like putting Iran on the Council For Women’s Rights. But well, this is the U.N., so the other day, instead of apologizing and politely withdrawing forever from anything to do with climate, weather, or the temperature of Al Gore’s pool, they doubled-down:
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in its recent 5th Assessment Report stressed that atmospheric concentrations of carbon, methane, and nitrous oxide have increased to levels unprecedented in at least the last 800,000 years. As a result, our climate is changing, our weather is more EXTREME, ice sheets and glaciers are melting and sea levels are rising…. According to the IPCC, global average temperatures could be 4.6 degrees higher by the end of the century if action is NOT TAKEN IMMEDIATELY to reduce emissions. This would have devastating consequences which is why we need to ACT NOW—time is not on our side.
Hmmm, IPCC? Would that be the same IPCC involved in the East Anglia University Science-palooza which featured data manipulation, the black-balling of “deniers,” and deceitful reports concerning everything from “coral bleaching” to the not-so-vanishing Andes snow-pack? Why, yes! It’s as if they hired Bill Clinton to lecture on fidelity. Heck–why not make him Father of the Year?!
I know…. Their “models” are as scientifically accurate as a Ouiga Board, yet they nonetheless make us laugh.
These clowns don’t know what date Al Gore last groped a masseuse let alone what happened 800 CENTURIES ago. The Emperor has no clothes, he KNOWS he has no clothes, he knows that YOU know he has no clothes, but the Emperor doesn’t care.
What we need is a sober official – preferably, the Secretary of State! – to sit the U.N down, send it to the Dunce Corner, and explain, once and for all, that we’re not going to tolerate Zip-gun Propaganda!
And, in fact, John Kerry did speak recently on the subject of CLIMATE! Standing, presumably sober, before a gaggle of plutocrats, he unfortunately failed to give the U.N. what-for and instead pretended it was “Saturday Night Live.”
To wit: “Climate change can now be considered the world’s largest weapon of mass destruction, perhaps even the WORLD’S MOST FEARSOME WEAPON OF MASS DESTRUCTION. We simply don’t have time to let a few loud interest groups hijack the conversation. The science is UNEQUIVOCAL, and those who refuse to believe it are simply burying their heads in the sand.”
Wow… Intense. I must, immediately, debouch (go outside) in my snow-suit, because a) half the nation feels like the prow of the Arctic Voyager, and b) I’m concerned that buried heads do…. not…. breathe.
Okay, I’m back…. The ground is harder than the baguette I chipped a tooth on, and if sand were present, you’d need a back-ho to plant daisies. By the way, the surface of Lake Superior is also hard—but hey, I’m just a LOUD INTEREST GROUP TRYING TO HIJACK THE CONVERSATION….
May I be honest? I don’t know what it is about Bo-tox, but between Catsup Man, Nancy Pelosi, and Al Gore, the Wack-Meter is melting. Does anyone smell irony in the fact that a super-duper RICH GUY is targeting Capitalism? The U.N’s anti-Capitalist shakedown (opposed by the Chinese) is an odd road for a man whose personal wealth exceeds the budget of …. Schadenfreude….. HANOI.
The Catsup Man seems to want fewer Catsup Men!
Certainly, the IPCC wants poor nations to minimize their “carbon footprint”—and what this entails (for it must) is STOPPING the vehicle – Capitalism – which allows people to rise from poverty, create wealth, and spit out former senators who brazenly avoid taxes while voting to raise them on their luxury sloops.
WOW…. Were it not for double-standards, me thinks he’d have none. It’s fine for Kerry…. errr, his wife’s father…. to be a capitalist, but the Third World must forego modernization in order to “save the planet”?
“Keeping Poor People Poor For Their Own Good” should be emblazoned on his letterhead.
And about his abuse of the word “unequivocal.” Before federal grants threw a wrench into objectivity, science wasn’t “unequivocal” in any way, shape, or form. Theories are…. THEORIES. And to the extent that they’re “proven,” they’re frequently proven WRONG.
Indeed, climate – sometimes known as “weather” – is the Golden Goose of greased nouns. Global warming is a hoax, the socialist-Marxists from Europe to the White House KNOW it’s a hoax, but they also know that, because “climate” is nebulous, they can move the bar (Heads they win, tails you lose), higher, lower, wherever.
As to Kerry’s arguably insane assertion that “climate change” is the WORLD’S MOST FEARSOME WEAPON OF MASS DESTRUCTION—Does anyone think he’s sober?
In 1945, two atomic bombs fried 200,000 Japanese. Today’s bombs, now hydrogen, are hundreds of times more lethal than “Little Boy.”
Hey, John—the red stuff won’t be KETCHUP.
As S.O.S., do us a favor—stop shouting “S.O.S.” The world outside your bubble is modeled on reality, global warming is a farce, and the absurdity of your claims is less convincing than embarrassing, a useless and pointless expulsion of overheated and toxic gas.
