The United States, Torres says, is responsible for “extreme weather events, megadroughts, desertification, deforestation, species extinctions, biodiversity loss, ecological collapse, the spread of infectious diseases, rising sea levels, food supply shortages, mass migrations, social upheaval, and political instability.”
Who knew? The United States apparently has the power of a god. This is mindless drivel. Yet somehow people pick it up as the gospel truth. It is truly frightening how little thought goes into the beliefs of global warming activists.
John Kerry, who voted against the Kyoto Protocol, now says anyone who doesn’t believe in climate change is not qualified to president. Didn’t he mean “Anyone who doesn’t waffle on their positions, voting both for and against an idea” does not deserve to be president? Or maybe it was “Anyone who doesn’t follow what the Washington elite and the very, very, very, very, very rich rulers of this country believe” does not deserve to be president? Maybe he just meant “anyone who disagrees with me does not deserve to be president”. Any way you look at it, it’s all about the politics and nothing about science.
“Saving the environment isn’t just about cutting carbon emissions, of course. Housing the conference cost a small forest. Rather than using existing buildings, the French government built a small city of pavilions at Le Bourget for the conference, seven miles north of the centre of Paris.
A total of 50 contractors worked for 40 days, knocking up 80,000 square metres of temporary buildings and fitting them out.
The centrepiece, a ‘plenary room’ to seat 2,000 delegates, was supposed to be a model of environmentally-friendliness. Yet it alone required 900 trees to be sawn down. The organisers say they have replaced every one with a new tree – overlooking the fact that the new trees are saplings while the 900 sawn down were mature trees. While the delegates were trying to persuade each other to invest in renewable energy, the buildings were heated by a gas-fired boiler. Unbelievably, the organisers said this ‘helps reduce carbon emissions by 20 per cent’ because they could have used an oil boiler, but didn’t.
The Paris Conference made great claims that it would create ‘zero waste’. That was assuming the buildings, to be taken down after the event, could be used again. They might just struggle, though, to find many people in need of a 2,000-seater plenary room.
The organisers said that reusable coffee cups did away with the need for two million disposable plastic cups. Yet reusable cups are not nearly as environmentally friendly as the organisers would have us believe as washing them consumes a lot of energy. According to environmental consultancy Carbon Clear, a ceramic coffee cup would have to be used 354 times before it has used less energy than a plastic cup.”

It should be clear to anyone that these people do NOT believe a word they are preaching. The waste and environmental damage wrought by these conferences is criminal. No one who actually believed in catastrophic, or even mildly threatening, global warming would behave in this fashion. This screams “We Don’t Care”. There is no reason whatsoever to listen to these individuals. If they don’t believe what they’re preaching, there’s no reason for you do so based on their proclamations.
“Arctic has its warmest year in history as experts say temperatures there are rising TWICE as fast as anywhere else in the world”

This is LOCAL warming and is proof of nothing. GLOBAL warming must be global. It is interesting that the IPCC and others worked so hard to eliminate the Medieval Warm Period and the Little Ice Age as “local” but I don’t see any rush to point out that the Arctic warming is LOCAL. Why is that?
IF Arctic warming is proof of or caused by global warming, then the Medieval Warm and Little Ice Age are proof that it was globally both warmer and colder in the past, during the time humans lived on the planet. Which means the Hockey Stick and much of what the activists are saying a lie. OR the Arctic is proof of NOTHING and again, the activists are lying. Either way.
