Considering the religious fervour that many climate evangelists bring to the issue Sunday is, appropriately, an official day of rest.
I attended the Copenhagen Climate Challenge Conference. It was about the science of climate. Speakers were scientists, lawyers and environmentalists.
The Climategate files have demonstrated the scientific malfeasance of an influential and internationally well networked segment of the climate research community.
As the Copenhagen conference unfolds it is possible to detect the outlines of the grim future dystopia that will emerge if the stealthy and remorseless proponents of global eco-fascism are allowed to remake our world in their image.
What was surprising was that the topic of the leaked emails and documents that has prompted ‘Climategate’ didn’t come up in the questions and answers section.
To make themselves feel important most delegates at international negotiating conferences always talk in acronyms, but at Copenhagen they’re in overdrive.
Like the debate about climate change in Australia, symbolism over substance is triumphing in Copenhagen and the pledge to make the conference carbon neutral is looking decidedly hard to deliver.
The Australian government alone has more than one hundred registered delegates.
The credibility of this segment of so-called news was zero to any intelligent person; even, I would hope, to those wedded to the conventional wisdom of man-made global warming.
Is any one actually in favour of pollution? Are people really organized and paid to encourage more pollution? Does this make any sense at all?
