World's press urges action on climate change (joint editorial to run in 45 countries newsrags)
Reuters on Yahoo ^ | 12/6/09 | Janet Lawrence

LONDON (Reuters) – Humanity faces a profound emergency and unless we combine to take decisive action, climate change will ravage our planet, a joint editorial published in newspapers in 45 countries said on Monday.

The 56 newspapers said they were taking the unprecedented step of speaking with one voice to implore world leaders to "make the right choice" at U.N. climate talks in Copenhagen.

"The politicians in Copenhagen have the power to shape history's judgment on this generation: one that saw a challenge and rose to it, or one so stupid that we saw a calamity coming but did not avert it," the editorial read.

Two-weeks of talks open on Monday seeking to agree curbs on greenhouse gas emissions and raise billions of dollars for the poor in aid and clean technology.

The talks end with a summit of 105 world leaders, including U.S. President Barack Obama, on December 18 and must overcome deep distrust between rich and poor nations about sharing the burden of costly cuts in carbon emissions.

"Climate change has been caused over centuries, has consequences that will endure for all time and our prospects of taming it will be determined in the next 14 days," ..

It was published in 20 languages, including Chinese, Arabic and Russian, in newspapers including the Guardian in London, Le Monde in France, the Toronto Star, Gulf Times, Botswana Guardian and Miami Herald.

"This should not be a fight between the rich world and the poor world, between east and west. Climate change affects everyone, and must be solved by everyone.

"The science is complex, but the facts are clear. The world needs to take steps to limit temperature rises to 2C, an aim that will require global emissions to peak and begin falling within the next 5-10 years.

The media prostitutes itself for an agenda we all end up paying for but is that gonna stop the fUN in the meantime in Copenhagen the next few days?

I agree, we should take urgent action. Let's build a huge series of nuclear plants along the Mediterranean coast, and install massive pipelines and desalination plants to harvest water from the Mediterranean sea, then pump that water into the Sahara desert. We can plant crops and turn that wasteland into a productive place within just a few years, and overturn every possible, even under the most dire of predictions, the effect of man on the world's climate.

They do not want us to stop anything, all they want is for the money machine to start pumping. It's Africa Aid all over again, it's a massive tax on the west to give to the third world. And it has nothing to do with human climate change.

The irony. Most likely over the next twenty or more years we shall see increased global cooling leading to huge numbers of deaths world wide. The only peoples that will not be effected will be those that live on the equator and within oceanic island systems, a few degrees north and south of it. The rest in the lowest southern countries and the northern countries will experience increasing low temperatures and horrible snow storms, extended cold rains, cloudy weather, reduced growing seasons for grains etc..
I can see now where all the elitist will be heading. They got the millions to buy real estate in those areas that will stay somewhat warm.

I should have added. Obviously we all have taken note that the buzz word is no longer global warming but climate change. The bastards must actually think the people of earth actually think they are even in the slightest degree honest and forthright.
With that I have to hit the sack. Work comes early.

Anybody else notice what is conspicuous by its absence?

That's right - the name of the author.

Exactly whose "one voice" are these newspapers speaking with? Did this hectoring editorial spring fully-formed from the Ministry of Truth, or did it flow from the pen of a single true believer? Who organized and paid for this appalling display of compliant and unquestioning group-think? And how much do they stand to benefit if Copenhagen saddles the world with massive taxes and forced wealth transfer, corruption, and a lower standard of living for future generations?

My cherry tomatoes are frozen. They were still growing the other day, with new blossoms and even a new head of broccoli. Down to three new roses and they are drouping too.

Now I have frozen vegetables, a day or two earlier than last year’s snow in DC.

GORE!!!!!

LONDON (Reuters)

. . . a joint editorial published in newspapers in 45 countries said on Monday.

The 56 newspapers said they were taking the unprecedented step of speaking with one voice to implore world leaders to "make the right choice" at U.N. climate talks in Copenhagen.

The major problem we have with "the media" lies precisely in the fact that "unprecedented" is the last word with which to describe Big Journalism "speaking with one voice."

It may be unprecedented for Big Journalism to openly speak with one voice in the editorial pages of its various fronts - but it is business as usual for them to speak with one voice on the front pages of its various fronts. In the "objective journalism" con, it is story selection and story emphasis, far more than in the tendentiousness of the stories (bad as that can be) which is the core of the tendentious of journalism. And, being in the same business, all journalisms have the same incentives which bias their story selection/emphasis. Those incentives boil down to a need/desire to hype the importance of their own work.

Thanks for the ping/post, c_I_c. This softball was served up on a silver platter for you. You’ve hit them out of the park with your work on this forum. Your line shot up the middle here sends a nice message. You’re still batting 1.000.

Great thread. Thanks to EVERY poster.
