The veracity of proponents of the theory of man-made climate change is very much in doubt in the days leading up to the UN conference in Copenhagen. However, one thing that will be proven beyond a doubt in the next several weeks is that not all pollution is created equal: Some pollution is apparently sanctified by the context of its generation.
In the aftermath of revelations of “Climategate,” proponents of the theory of manmade climate change are ramping up the rhetoric in the remaining days before the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, where they will press for extreme measures to combat climate change.
Obama’s September trip to Copenhagen to plead with the International Olympic Committee to consider Chicago as host city for the 2016 Summer Games did not work out very well for the United States — and his next scheduled trip to Denmark promises to leave our nation’s score at 0–2.
With the start of the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen only two weeks away, pressure is increasing for industrialized world — and the United States, in particular — to submit to plans which would severely restrict industries (such as power plants) which emit carbon dioxide, while transferring wealth to Third World nations to encourage adoption of "green" technologies.
As the scientific data used to support theories of anthropogenic (human caused) “climate change” grows more and more tenuous, environmental extremists and their internationalist allies continue to turn up the heat on their rhetoric.
Apparently, the Senate will not be voting on “cap and trade” any time soon, and all UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon can do about it is tap his foot impatiently and complain to the media.
According to critics, for Al Gore, “going green” is not just a slogan for saving the world, it is a description of his bank account.
Unwilling to settle for a mere $100 billion a year, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon is demanding that First World nations dramatically increase their commitment to the wealth redistribution schemes planned for the UN Conference on Climate Change next month in Copenhagen.
Americans are already suffering from the economic "shell shock" associated with the AIG bailout, the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP), schemes in Washington to collectivize the nation’s healthcare system, “cap-and-trade” proposals that practically tax the air we breathe, and a seemingly endless roster of costly government programs. Now, with the federal government facing a projected $1.4 trillion deficit for 2009, yet another "bill" is going to be dropped in the lap of the taxpayers: the costs of cleaning up the environment.
As advances in the field of genetics continue at a dizzying pace, one calls to mind the words of St. Bernard of Clairvaux in the twelfth century: “Hell is full of good intentions or desires.”
