How much have you heard from the mainstream media about the hypocrisy taking place at the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen this December? Not much. But should we be surprised, even after the Climategate scandal that inconveniently happened just before the conference?
No, because it's a pattern. Remember two year's ago at the conference in Bali? Here's what I wrote then:
Noel Sheppard over at NewsBusters reported on the dilemma the large number of private charter airplanes going to the UN Conference on Climate Change on December 3-15 is causing for the small Bali airport:
"As climate alarmists from all over the world head to Bali to talk about the sacrifices regular folks have to make to save the planet from global warming, it seems certain media will ignore all the private jets clogging the tiny airport.As if it’s not enough that the United Nations Climate Change Conference is being held at what NewsBusters reported as "a truly beautiful tropical island paradise," the management of the nearby airport has issued a warning to attendees that they are going to have to park their private jets somewhere else. I kid you not. Talk about your really inconvenient truths."
Bali Discovery Tours reported on November 3rd:
Tempo Interaktif reports that Angkasa Pura - the management of Bali's Ngurah Rai International Airport are concerned that the large number of additional private charter flights expected in Bali during the UN Conference on Climate Change (UNFCCC) December 3-15, 2007, will exceed the carrying capacity of apron areas. To meet the added demand for aircraft storage officials are allocating "parking space" at other airports in Indonesia. The operational manager for Bali's Airport, Azjar Effendi, says his 3 parking areas can only accommodate 15 planes, which means that some of the jets used by VIP delegations will only be allowed to disembark and embark their planes in Bali with parking provided at airports in Surabaya, Lombok, Jakarta and Makassar.

"Obviously the only way to really get the feel for global warming is to sit in the sun drinking rum drinks so I can see why the UN had to fly everyone to Bali. As Glenn Reynolds said, “I’ll believe it’s a crisis when the people who tell me it’s a crisis start acting like it’s a crisis.” Exactly, if this were a crisis they could find a more central location (like North Dakota), fly in on commercial planes or actually hold regional meetings and teleconference to give it worldwide scope. But this global warming thing is the UN jumping in on the bandwagon to create a profit for their leadership. I just wish that the US news organizations would quit treating the UN like they are the final arbiters of what’s right. They’re a good gauge of that, but only if you assume they’re saying the wrong thing.
So, what has the media failed to adequately cover this time?
#1 Climategate - which 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.
#2 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."
Now we know why global-warming enthusists like Al Gore don't practice what they preach -- because it's not true.
And just for the record: 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!
We talked about this on the show this week and about Science Czar, John Holdren's, involvement. Wait to you hear how he thinks "redistribution" should work, which you can listen to online now at the link below.
