Czech President Vaclav Klaus sharply criticized a U.N. meeting on climate change

September 24, 2009

Czech President Vaclav Klaus sharply criticized a U.N. meeting on climate change on Tuesday at which U.S. President Barack Obama was among the top speakers, describing it as propagandistic and undignified.

“It was sad and it was frustrating,” said Klaus, one of the world’s most vocal skeptics on the topic of global warming.

“It’s a propagandistic exercise where 13-year-old girls from some far-away country perform a pre-rehearsed poem,” he said. “It’s simply not dignified.”

At the opening of the summit attended by nearly 100 world leaders, 13-year-old Yugratna Srivastava of India told the audience that governments were not doing enough to combat the threat of climate change.

Global Warming It's a Good Thing

July 16, 2009

Are the deserts getting greener?

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change warned recently that rising global temperatures could cut West African agricultural production by up to 50% by the year 2020.

But satellite images from the last 15 years do seem to show a recovery of vegetation in the Southern Sahara, although the Sahel Belt, the semi-arid tropical savannah to the south of the desert, remains fragile.

Carol Mitchell Huron-Bruce MPP Missing ?

June 23, 2009

Editor:

Carol Mitchell, through her office staff, was invited to attend the taping of a television program at the Ripley wind farm.  She never showed up. Granted the invite was on short notice but there was concern for her when she failed to show.

On the evening of June 22, it was understood  she was scheduled  to attend a Wind Turbine regulations public meeting in Port Elgin where approximately 180 citizens anticipated her arrival .  She did not show up.

I don’t wish to alarm anyone by calling the police  at this time. If you know of her whereabouts please ask her to contact me.

Carol Mitchell may or may not be sporting a small green tattoo.

Your attention in this matter is appreciated!

Emissions up in developed nations

November 19, 2008

Editor:

When did the UN become the rulers of Canada? or anywhere else for that matter. The UN and the madcaps that dwell there, want to rule the world. What does the UN offer? nothing of any value. They offer us phony global warming via the IPCC, brainwashing of the children in the schools via UNESCO, internationalization of our electrical systems via the IEA, internationalization of our water via the IWRM. The UN owns nothing and offers nothing – yet they want us to allow them to set the important policy of our countries.

If you want One World Govt. and One World Religion, jump on the UN bandwagon. If you still believe in your Nation State  and Democracy, then it’s time to roll up your “Freedom Sleeves”  and get to work.

Democracy is not a right and it can be lost, especially when our own governments are working to undermine it via the UN.

Emissions up in developed nations

By Roger Harrabin
Environment analyst, BBC News

Smoke billows from Germany's Frimmersdorf power plant on 25 February 2008

Industrialised nations’ emissions are up since 2000, despite promised cuts

Emissions of greenhouse gases by industrialised nations rose 2.3% from 2000 to 2006, according to new figures from the UN’s climate change agency.

The biggest increases were in the former Soviet bloc – and Canada.

A UN spokesman said countries had to work much faster to avoid the possibility of dangerous climate change.

Next month the nations of the world meet in Poland for the annual negotiations on climate change.

The new figures do not offer a great deal of optimism.

They show that in 2006 emissions did actually fall by 0.1%, but the UN’s climate change secretariat said that this tiny dip was statistically insignificant.

The overall underlying trend since 2000 is up, even though the countries in question had promised to cut their emissions.

The worst culprit has been Canada. Its emissions since 1990 have shot up 21.3% – they should have fallen 6%.

Global Warming Hoaxers Call for Food Rationing

October 1, 2008

Editor:

I posted about this same story a while back. –Shun meat, says UN climate chief- We are headed for dangerous times. There is no longer any doubt. If you read only one document, make it the Green Agenda. If the Green Agenda fails to open your eyes, you have made a conscious effort to remain willfully blind. If you have children in the school system, understand they are being indoctrinated by a system created by UNESCO. It is a system put in place to brainwash your children.

Read and study the Green Agenda with your children. It is your duty as a parent to start  deprogramming  them today.

MEAT MUST BE RATIONED TO FOUR PORTIONS A WEEK, SAYS REPORT ON CLIMATE CHANGE

It’s not a joke. Hoaxers are actually using the “climate change” farce — which took over from global warming when people started to figure out that it’s not getting any warmer — to justify the ultimate form of control, food rationing.

People will have to be rationed to four modest portions of meat and one litre of milk a week if the world is to avoid run-away climate change, a major new report warns.

The report, by the Food Climate Research Network, based at the University of Surrey, also says total food consumption should be reduced, especially “low nutritional value” treats such as alcohol, sweets and chocolates.

Outside of university faculties and psychiatric wards, few really believe their diet influences the weather. But of course what this is really about is advancing the sacred liberal cause of totalitarianism as an end in itself.

Tara Garnett, the report’s author, warned that campaigns encouraging people to change their habits voluntarily were doomed to fail and urged the government to use caps on greenhouse gas emissions and carbon pricing to ensure changes were made.

As pioneering progressive Benito Mussolini put it, “All within the state, nothing outside the state.” Not even what you have for dinner should escape regulation.

This is why liberals don’t want citizens to own guns. Sooner or later, if we’re still human, we’ll rebel.

Esquire Calls Al Gore A Lunatic

September 21, 2008

Editor:
I was sent this story by one of my readers. Thanks
Hell, I and many others have been saying the same thing for years.
What took Esquire so long. If the main stream media had been doing their job, all this bull would never have gotten out of the gate.
Gore has been a con man forever and has been given way too much slack.
Gore is a Con, just like his Global Warming Scam and his Carbon Credit Scam.

Al Gore and Maurice Strong – Con Artists

Sheep tend to end up on the dinner plate.

Refuse to vote for anyone who says “Man made global warming – climate change” is a threat, or anyone pushing carbon credits or cap and trade.

Read the Green Agenda and wise up!

Al Gore

Al Gore is a lunatic. If you’ve ever seen the man speak in person, well, it’s hard to know whether or not he’s putting you on. He is so over-the-top that you are tempted to laugh. You do laugh. Think about it: There’s this oversized man in a suit at least two sizes too large alternately yelling at you about how our planet has a fever and how you aren’t treating it and then, suddenly, pausing as if in thought (though he has given this talk thousands of times), extending his left hand in front of him as if holding poor Yorick’s skull, examining the tips of his fingers as if the words he is about to say or the idea he is on the verge of is balanced on his digits. And then he begins to speak again, calmly building to an overwrought explication of the apocalypse.

It’s amazing, funny, and borderline crazy. And it’s clearly working.

We, as a culture, always reject the lunatic fringe and then inexorably move toward it. We mocked PETA and then, 20 years later, we’re lobbying Congress to pass legislation securing the rights of dogs. And when the lunatic is a former vice-president who went on to win both the popular vote and a Nobel prize, our willingness to embrace that fringe is enhanced.

So when he stood before us this past summer and claimed that within ten years a combination of wind and solar power can produce all of our country’s electric energy needs, it was both preposterous and strategically brilliant. He set a ridiculous goal, but it’s the very lunacy of it that may push us closer to a consummation devoutly to be wished. Gore is a crazy man. And that is the key to his influence.

Global Warming – The Real Agenda

September 7, 2008

Editor:

I have always believed that in order to understand what is happening now – you first have to back up.

Here is a perfect example from 1998

Yes folks – global warming is a scam and it’s time to wake up.

In the 2008 Canadian Federal Election you are being asked to vote for your choice of TRAITOR.

Regardless of which party you vote for – you are voting for traitors.

In 2008 you need to vote independent or refrain from casting your vote.

If you vote for any of the main parties you are voting against CANADA.

In essence you have become a traitor.

Same holds true in the USA

What is the most important problem facing Canada? When the annual Maclean’s/CBC year-end poll asked that question, there was at least one clear answer: Not the environment; in fact, anything but the environment. Ranked by percentage of people who identified one subject or another, the top worry among

Canadians is unemployment (15%), followed by government spending, the economy, health care, national unity, taxes, poverty, education and crime. At the bottom of the list, garnering only 2% support, is the environment.

The possibility that 98% of Canadians are not in a state of high anxiety over global warming, freaky weather, ozone depletion, pollution and scores of other Green scares must be a teeth-gritting irritation to environmentalists. They have, after all, spent decades fertilizing the idea that we are on the brink of environmental disaster. Ottawa and the provinces have spent billions on the campaign, which includes turning the weather into a propaganda tool and the school system into an indoctrination camp that begins in kindergarten.

The poll is a testament to the good sense of Canadians. Despite relentless scare-mongering by bureaucrats and activists, Canadians remain unwaveringly fixed on a national economic agenda of growth and prosperity rather than on fantastic claims of apocalypse. When David Suzuki says global warming ‘is the most urgent slow-motion catastrophe facing humankind,’ nobody is paying much attention.

Except our politicians. Backed by an army of bureaucrats and researchers, governments are systematically preparing to shut down the engines of economic progress in the name of environmentalism. In Canada, the heart of the stop-growth campaign is Environment Canada, where key bureaucrats dedicated to imposing an environmental agenda on the country have seized control. The focus of their effort is global warming and climate change, which they intend to use as a lever to impose what can only be described as a new economic order.

The politician nominally in charge of all this is Environment Minister Christine Stewart. Whether Ms. Stewart fully understands what’s going on around her is unknown, but during a recent visit with the editorial board of the Calgary Herald she certainly demonstrated her conversion to the religion of global warming.

Ms. Stewart said that, ‘as minister of the environment, I am very worried about global warming,’ which for a politician isn’t saying much. Politicians are habitually ‘very worried’ about one thing or another. The trouble starts when they use their power to fix problems they’re worried about, even if the problems don’t exist. Ms. Stewart said she’s prepared to do exactly that. ‘No matter if the science is all phony,’ she said, ‘there are collateral environmental benefits.’

Environment Canada, therefore, is prepared to act on global warming even if there’s no such thing as global warming. On the strength of phony science, the federal government would still be willing to impose new taxes on energy consumption, cut economic growth, reduce our standard of living, and create bookshelves filled with new regulation governing most facets of the lives of Canadians.

In another statement quoted by the Herald, Ms. Stewart gave another reason for adopting the religion of global warming. ‘Climate change [provides] the greatest chance to bring about justice and equality in the world.’ Here she gets closer to the core motivation of some of the leading global warming activists. Where socialism’s attempt at a global redistribution of wealth ended in economic catastrophe, global warming is being wheeled in as the next new economic crusade.

Consolidating Ms. Stewart’s statements, we reach some horrific conclusions. Whether global warming actually exists is irrelevant. It is, in the hands of government and environmental activists, a convenient front for the introduction of programs and economic policies that Canadians – and most citizens of the world – would not otherwise accept.

Ms. Stewart, perhaps unintentionally, has identified the two key foundations of the global warming movement. One is based in environmentalism, which essentially claims that human beings are a problem in nature. The other foundation is the old business of economic redistribution. Both these movements are linked in the international climate change treaty Canada signed in Kyoto. Environment Canada has already given up trying to examine the science. It never really tried. Instead, it spends hundreds of millions of dollars churning out propaganda on the hypothetical effects of global warming. Its latest reports include hundreds of studies warning of everything from spreading insect-borne disease to increasing forest fires.

The Maclean’s poll shows Canadians aren’t going along with the government or the claims of environmentalists. If they knew what Ms. Stewart has in store for jobs and living standards, and why, they might take a greater interest.Link

The £6 billion rip-off – Via Govt. and the Wind Industry

August 28, 2008

It doesn’t matter if you are in North America or Europe the same scam is taking place. Building wind farms in order to save us from the other scam.

Global Warming!

The UN is the enemy of freedom!

The £6 billion rip-off

In sleepy rural North Shrophire, a battle is being played out which represents the cutting edge of resistance to the growing insanity of this government’s energy policy.

As part of the EU’s plan to generate 20 percent of the UK’s electricity using renewables, seven giant 340 ft, 2MW wind turbines are being planned on a remote corner of the district, known as Lower Farm, Bearstone, attracting objections from 2,333 residents and businesses, six Parish Councils, two MPs and the neighbouring Borough Council.

Yet, despite only five letters in support of the wind turbines, being developed on behalf of Nuon Electricity, the local planning officer has recommended its approval, citing the over-riding need to meet national quotas for renewable energy.

What is particularly shocking about the whole affair, however, is that the local plan permits approval of developments only if they “make a positive contribution to the economic health of the community” yet, through the good offices of local MP Owen Paterson, it has emerged that this is anything but the case.

Not only will the local residents have to pay top dollar for the electricity produced, through the government’s incentive scheme to encourage building wind farms – known as the Renewable Obligations Certificate – they will have to pay twice over. The total sum amounts to a colossal £43 million over the life of the project.

This is worked out of the basis of ROCs being paid out at the rate of £53 per MWh of electricity produced, which is added to consumers’ electricity bills. The turbines will produce an estimated 32,377 MWh a year, producing a subsidy of £1,715,981 for each of the 25 years the permission to operate lasts, totalling just under the £43 million.

Why this should be a wake-up call for the rest of the nation is that this illustrates the huge scale of the hidden incentives involved. Energy companies are not so much building wind as subsidy farms, such is the bonanza to be grabbed.

By 2020, the government hopes to have 25 GW capacity in offshore wind farms – attracting 1.5 times the standard ROC, on top of 14 GW of onshore capacity. With ROCs paid out at a rate of £53 per MWh, the total annual sum for British electricity consumers will amount to a staggering £6 billion – a total of £155 billion paid to wind subsidy farmers over the expected life-times of the projects (equivalant to the cost of building over 50 nuclear power plants).

Given that the entire electricity market at 2008 prices is somewhat less that £24 billion, the effect of reaching the EU’s target on wind energy would be equivalent to adding 25 percent or more to the price of domestic electricity – on top of which consumers will also have to fund the building of power stations to produce electricity when the wind is not blowing, as well as an estimated £10 billion for extensions to the National Grid to enable the turbines to be connected.

Few people at the moment realise quite what is at stake, as the ROC “contribution” is not identified on consumer bills and is currently less than £400 million a year. But, as each mast is erected to disfigure the countryside, the costs will ratchet up until we are all paying this incredible sum of £6 billion a year for the privilege.

And, such is the grip of the greenie monster that is driving this insanity, even when people have expressed a clear rejection of a development, the officials plan to go ahead regardless. And to think we once lived in a democracy.
