Climategate & Copenhagen
Our friend Marc Morano is at Copenhagen this week for the United Nations Climate Change Conference which begins today and will give us a report when he returns.
In the meantime, President Obama is still planning to go, even though Al Gore has declined after the scandal of Climategate. (Gore had a special meeting with Obama today to 'compare notes' for Copenhagen).
What will Obama say and do (and commit the United States to) while there? THAT is the most important aspect of this controversy.
Climategate - it has been exposed that global warming scientists have been cooking the books, ie falsifying data to 'prove' there is man-made global warming. This is the biggest science-scam in all history! And Obama's Science Czar, John Holdren, is linked to Climategate, that has scientists scrambling ever since information was leaked to the press from emails between fellow scientists caught falsifying data.
Now we know why global-warming enthusists like Al Gore don't practice what they preach -- because it's not true!
As The Heritage Foundation reports: "Despite the fact that the entire conference is founded on the belief that human economic activity, especially flying and driving, is emitting levels of greenhouse gasses that will soon kill us all, plutocrats from around the world have marshaled over 1,200 limos and 140 private planes to travel to and around Copenhagen over the next two weeks."
Not only that, but according to U.N.'s own data, between 2000 and 2006, the 27 European signatories of the Kyoto Treaty requiring them to decrease greenhouse emissions, actually increased their emissions by 0.1%. Canada saw a 21.3% emissions rise! Meanwhile, the (big-bad) U.S., which was not bound by the treaty since the U.S. Senate voted 95-0 against the treaty, actually reduced our emissions by 3% over the same time period!
Reuters reported today: "The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency ruled that greenhouse gases endanger human health, allowing it to regulate planet-warming gases without legislation from the Senate, where a bill to cut U.S. emissions by 2020 is stalled. The ruling was welcomed at the opening day of December 7-18 talks in Copenhagen, where a record 15,000 participants are trying to work out the first new U.N. pact in 12 years to combat rising seas, desertification, floods and cyclones."
As Glenn Beck pointed out in his show today -- this will allow the coal industry to be regulated along with other top industries which means more job losses.
What in the world is 'climate justice'?
See some of the quotes from the first day of the conference HERE.
We talk about this, "climate debt", on the show today, as we talk more about Science Czar, John Holdren. Wait to you hear how he thinks redistribution should work.
