Environmentalists want a new world order

- November 28th, 2011

Earlier today, the jet set of the climate change world began their meeting in Durban, South Africa.

Sure, this United Nations body could meet in New York or Geneva where the UN has permanent facilities but that wouldn’t allow them to whoop it up in places like Bali, Cancun and now Durban. Sure one year they met in a frigid Copenhagen but that was a mistake.

So now thousands of delegates have flown to sunny, warm Durban with it’s beautiful golf courses, exquisite beaches and history of racism.

No, I’m not just talking apartheid, this is also where the anti-Semitic human rights conference known as Durban got it’s start.

But don’t worry, they are here to save the environment, or if you believe the people behind this movement, re-order society.

I don’t make this stuff up, you just need to ask the participants.

Here’s what Tim Flannery, a world renowned climate change expert, told me just ahead of the Copenhagen conference a couple of years ago:

“The negotiations now ongoing towards the Copenhagen agreement are in effect diplomacy at the most profound global level. They deal with every aspect of our life and they will influence every aspect of our life, our economy, our society, our relationship with the developing world, our relationship with the environment as well.”

Last year, ahead of the Cancun summit  Ottmar Edenhofer, a German economist and co-chair of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, said that “climate policy is redistributing the world’s wealth.”

And you thought this was about the environment didn’t you?

No, this is about reorganizing the world. This is about redistributing wealth.

Canada is set to give another $400 million for climate change financing. That’s right, another $400 million.

Sure the Harper government is pulling out of the Kyoto Protocol, this after Chretien signed Canada up for targets that could never be met and that he never did anything to move us towards those targets.

We are pulling out of Kyoto but still paying the Dane geld to the climate change alarmists.

Well now we have more evidence that there are problems with the system.

Another cache of emails have been released, it’s being dubbed climate gate 2. Some people don’t want to publish the emails or want to discredit them because they were hacked, stolen if you will. Sure all the emails, the diplomatic cables released by Wiki Leaks were stolen, but that’s different, they were hacked and released for a great cause – embarrassing America.

The climate gate emails once again show that scientists wanted to hide information that didn’t support their cause.

Phil Jones, the man behind the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia, is found to be shutting out researchers who don’t fully back his views. There is one email that talks about finding an investigative journalist to go after critics of the UN’s climate change reports.

“I have been talking with folks in the States about finding an investigative journalist to investigate and expose McIntyre and his thus far unexposed connections with fossil fuels interests.” – Michael Mann, University of Pennsylvania.

The temperature of the world has not been going up for years, a fact that Flannery told me was related to the fact that the earth was cooling before it warmed again.

Now a new report form the American National Science Foundation is also questioning the overall concept of warming saying that the UN folks have been over-hyping the problem.

For too long, the debate surrounding climate change has been one of those in favour silencing those opposed and claiming the science is settled.

Those days are now over and real debate can resume.

And that’s the Byline.

From ban the bomb to ban the ad, the evolution of the Greens

- November 2nd, 2010

Elizabeth May is worried about what watching TV might do to you.

The Green Party and their leader have called for a ban on political ads on TV before the next election.

“Before Canadians next go to the polls, we want to propose sweeping new changes to protect our political commons,” May said in a news release.

The Greens say Canada should follow the lead of other countries like the U.K., South Africa, Brazil, Belgium, Switzerland, Chile, Sweden, and Ireland.

“The banning of political advertisements would be an important first step in the renewal of democracy in Canada. I don’t see why every party in Canada would not agree to this proposal – after all, it would be an excellent chance to speak about what really matters, policy and governance,” said Deputy Green Leader Adriane Carr.

The reason for this ban according to the Greens is to protect Canadians from the manipulations we see in the United States and stop politicians from “the character and personal foibles of the opposition,” said May.

All in favour……

Here’s an idea. While we’re banning attack ads on TV let’s also ban politicians from attacking each other period so that my ears are protected from mudslinging like this.

  • Elizabeth May said the Prime Minister’s stance on climate change “represents a grievance worse than Neville Chamberlain’s appeasement of the Nazis.” London Free Press, April 30, 2007

And while we’re banning political ads, let’s help out my profession and ban all of those inane press releases parties send out like the one that sparked this rant. Sure, my came via email but each pixel has a carbon footprint.

In calling for the TV ad ban, May and her Green MPs, oh wait they don’t have any, want the TV networks to offer up free airtime for political ads “to allow candidates to explain their own views and policies.”

Because that’s exactly what Canadian political parties need are more subsidies.
