World celebrities sing to stop global warming
AFP ^

World celebrities sing to stop global warming (AFP) – 10 hours ago GENEVA — British rock group Duran Duran and heavy metal band Scorpions are among 55 world celebrities who have joined in recording a song to draw attention to the global warming crisis, organisers said on Monday. The song is part of a mass media campaign on the threats of climate change organised by the Geneva-based Global Humanitarian Forum, headed by former UN secretary general Kofi Annan. The song entitled "Beds'r Burning", which was originally recorded by the Australian group Midnight Oil in the 1980s, can be downloaded from the Internet for free and will be presented to the public at a launch in Paris on October 1. "If we do not stop the (greenhouse gas) emissions today, global warming will be still be with us in 40 to 50 years," warned Walter Fust, director of the Forum, at a press conference in Geneva. The media campaign featuring the song is aimed at putting pressure on world leaders to reach an agreement on tackling climate change at a UN-sponsored conference in Copenhagen in December. Some of the other popular artists who add their voices to the anti-global warming song include French 'Piaf' actress Marion Cotillard, Senegalese star Youssou N'dour, Irish singer/composer Bob Geldorf, Chinese singer Khalil Fong, and even a Nobel peace laureate, South African archbishop Desmond Tutu.

Well now.
That should make them feel better.
Unfortunately it does nothing about curing the flu.

Personally, I think the chicken dance with squirrel entrails is more effective, but no harm in trying… ?

WTF? Are these people serious? I don’t even understand that quote.

Singing. Yeah, that oughta do it. I wonder if the “celebritards” could do some singing and stop the Islamofascists from being a bunch of backwards, stupid, cruel, barbaric A-holes and murderous thugs and women haters?

Think that’ll work?

The Trammps - Disco Inferno

Foreigner - Hot BLooded

Peggy Lee - You give Me Fever

Blue Oyster Cult - I’m Burning for You

ABBA - SOS

Beach Boys - Warmth of the Sun

Etc etc

And eliminate a lot of secondary emissions too. / SARC!

Hey, that Bob Geldolf is involved! He's the guy that cured African Hunger by gathering up all those recording artists and recording that "We Are The World" song. This guy is a proven miracle worker. In fact, he even turned those Africans on to the fact that it was Christmas - because up until that Band-Aid single, they hadn't had a clue!

Well damn, now he's about to cure global warming by putting on yet another shingdig of a concert. It's a bloody crime they haven't given him the Nobel Peace Prize yet. A bloody crime I tell you.

VIDEO Joe Bastardi of Accuweather.com in debunking blame of CA fires on Global Warming, debunks GW
Accuweather.com ^ | 9/10/09 | PRO1

Posted on Thursday, September 10, 2009 12:02:57 PM by PRO 1

Joe Bastardi of Accuweather.com on Accuweather’s website and again on Bill O’Reilly’s show 9/9/09 presents irrefutable evidence which debunks claims by environmentalists that California’s wild fires were caused by Global Warming. In a few short minutes and with just a few graphics of charts and images He debunks contemporary claims of Global Warming entirely.

Certainly, many far better than myself, have refuted the false claims of Global Warming and the so called human cause of it. But for obvious reasons, those who’s attempts to do so have been thwarted by a biased agendized media, disinterested and dishonest politicians, and an ignorant distracted public.

Few of us were of the scientific background to immediately refute or take the time or expend the resources to independently research the topic entirely to where we would be fully informed. Combing the volumes of research data where deep within lay the truths that would expose the fraud has been something inaccessible to most Americans.

This is how they fooled and/or silenced most of us. Not because we were stupid but because we lacked the “at finger tip” tools to refute the liars as they told their tale.
Here is a tool. Here is a very simple, easy to replay, irrefutable presentation that is for even the layman (which most of us are) to comprehend and understand.

Not being a skilled poster I apologize in advance. I’ve always sought a simple brief presentation (which I knew would come along eventually) that I could show people I know which would prove Global Warming to be a fraud, or at a minimum, show it to be highly suspect.

Think for a moment of all the billions if not trillions of dollars which has been stolen from the American taxpayer to prop up a complete fraud. Because if it indeed is a fraud, then every action based on that fraud that has been taken is equally fraudulent also. The list includes; Greenhouse Gasses, Cafe Standards, all “green” initiatives (Fed,State,Local), “Green” related products, bogus research grants, all related taxes, all government legislation and bureaucracies, Climate Change, Oil consumption and exploration restrictions, and all other actions taken in response to a completely false and unchangeable premise called “Global Warming”.

All the fraud, all the wasted energy, all the wasted tax and business expenses would end if we can just reach everyone with the truth.

Not to belabor the obvious, but aren’t they worried about all of the excess C02 unnecessarily released into the air?

“We Are the World” and “Do They Know it’s Christmas” together probably melted some poor polar bear’s iceberg.

San, interesting tagline.

While I suppose Judy Garland is a very popular metric for lifespan(?), she only lived 47 years.

Reminds me of a Lily Tomlin line - “All my life, I’ve wanted to BE somebody! Then I realized I should have set my goals a bit higher.

But I thought that CO2 caused globull warming! Maybe they should just shut their traps and stop breathing for, say, five to ten minutes to reduce their carbon footprint.

I’m singing to win $100 million in the lottery. Think that’ll work?

“Global warming”? It’s all in some peoples minds. Zero proof that it exists at all. Even if it does, who cares, we’re all going to die anyway. The Muslims, socialists, communists, Democrats, Obambi,Pelosi, Sean Penn, Michael Moore, Bernie Sanders, et al will probably kill us all first anyway.

Emotional, political hysteria pure and simple.

Celebrities sing to promote global smarming.

What would we do without all these brilliant artists to save us from ourselves? They are so together, such role models for all of us.

I guess that next they’ll all be taking off their clothes for “global warming”. Celebrities are weird and freaky.

Are there ANY other totally discretionary entertainment events that generate as much CO2 as a large-scale traveling rock band act? This is so ridiculous. I’d be impressed and would respect them if they all voluntarily decided to stop touring and just recorded in a studio.

Don't forget Paul Shanklin's great cover of Johnny Cash's "Ring of Fire", as heard on Rush Limbaugh.

Cheers!
