56 Papers in 45 Countries Publish Joint Editorial

NEW YORK Tomorrow 56 newspapers in 45 countries take the perhaps unprecedented step of speaking with one voice through a common editorial. Many if not most will publish it on the front page, warning of a "profound emergency."

The Guardian of London, which helped draft the editorial, published it today, with a note at the end. Here it is. *

Unless we combine to take decisive action, climate change will ravage our planet, and with it our prosperity and security. The dangers have been becoming apparent for a generation. Now the facts have started to speak: 11 of the past 14 years have been the warmest on record, the Arctic ice-cap is melting and last year's inflamed oil and food prices provide a foretaste of future havoc. In scientific journals the question is no longer whether humans are to blame, but how little time we have got left to limit the damage. Yet so far the world's response has been feeble and half-hearted.

There are so few readers of newspapers that it makes little difference.

I remember when science was evaluated based on publicly available data and objective peer review. I miss those days. Today science is decreed by tyrants grabbing for more power and by editorial boards hoping to be given crumbs in return for their support.

At least we will know which 56 are true government propaganda machines

If they DO NOT cover the Climate-gate story, but can be made to run this ‘editorial’ then they can not be counted on for news ever again.

There's billions upon billions of commercial and private dollars at stake worldwide in the Great Global Warming Scam.

You can really tell by this joint editorial how desperate and terrified the leftist, criminal con-artist combine is that their walls may be tumbling down very shortly.

From the CRU data dump:

From: Phil Jones xxxxxxxx To: John Christy xxxxxxxx Subject: This and that Date: Tue Jul 5 15:51:55 2005 "The scientific community would come down on me in no uncertain terms if I said the world had cooled from 1998. OK it has but it is only 7 years of data and it isn't statistically significant."

No print edition paper I am aware of casts itself as “fair and balanced”.

If all of these newspapers had decided to go even ONE DAY without publishing -—

How much air and water pollution would have been avoided?

How much energy would have been saved?

Bearing in mind that an "editorial" is just the editors opinion, that means that only 56 individual persons in those 45 countries are pushing a "joint" editorial (which means that somewhere, only one person wrote the editorial).

Now if 56 newspapers publish it, and 55 of them were to too lazy or too ignorant to write their own editorial, then I sense that a "fix" was in somewhere. Entities that separated by distance, languages, and cultures hardly ever agree on anything. There is some big money floating around and it probably came from a big "bailout" somewhere.

I just skimmed the crap but did search on CRU, scandal and climategate - none of which were found. How NO mention of this issue is possible in an AGW article is simply astounding. Idiots. ;-)

And amazingly, only one American rag. Apparently, most of the American papers are content to be less in-your-face with their advocacy.

The UN states that the cost is ~10 years of GLOBAL GDP or ~$600 TRILLION to prevent Climate Change/Globull Warming. The biggest thief in History!

These newspaper editorialists are-—

Freakin’ liberal arts majors who are clueless when it comes to science and then you have the stone ideologues who want socialism and “climate change” leads to socialist measures
