John Hinderaker took a brief look at the United Nations climate change conference in Copenhagen (What Are They Doing In Copenhagen?) Among the heroes of the conference are Hugo Chavez and Robert Mugabe.
Andrew Bolt gets to the heart of the conference with a look at one of the lesser known figures. Bolt writes: "Nothing is real in Copenhagen - not the temperature record, not the predictions, not the agenda, not the 'solution.'" Quoting (a report) from the Australian, Bolt provides a good example of "how fake it all is."
The lead negotiator for the small island nation of Tuvalu, the bow-tie wearing Ian Fry, broke down as he begged delegates to take tough action.
"I woke up this morning crying," and that's not easy for a grown man to admit," Mr Fry said on Saturday, as his eyes welled with tears.
"The fate of my country rests in your hands," he concluded, as the audience exploded with wild applause.
Bolt comments: "So moving. But let's now learn more from Samantha Maiden about this former Greenpeace official from 'Tuvalu.'" Quoting again from the Australian, Bolt adds:
But the part-time PhD scholar at the Australian National University actually resides in Queanbeyan, NSW, where he's not likely to be troubled by rising sea levels because the closest beach at Batemans Bay is a two-hour, 144km drive away. Asked whether he had ever lived in Tuvalu, his wife told The Australian last night she would "rather not comment"....
Still, it's a long way from the endangered atolls of Tuvalu, with his neighbour Michelle Ormay confirming he's lived in Queanbeyan for more than a decade, while he has worked his way up to being "very high up in climate change."
The neighbor's description of the fake from Tuvalu is also noteworthy. She says he is "very high up in climate change," as though it's a business, which of course it is.
UPDATE: Senator James Inhofe has arrived in Copenhage to deliver (Inhofe in Copenhagen: "It Has Failed ... It's Deja Vu All Over Again." ) (an authentic word)..."My stated reason for attending Copenhagen was to make certain the 191 countries attending COP-15 would not be deceived into thinking the US would pass cap-and-trade legislation. That won't happen. And for the sake of the American people, and the economic well-being of America, that's a good thing."
Obama through Hillary is offering tons of money - 100 Billion to be exact...call your Senators and stop this madness.
Clearly stated for the first time...Climate Change is a business (as well as a fraud) wise people like Inhofe will not invest in it....call your elected to tell them once again this whole Climate and Global Warming is a fraud...to get out of there before Hillary gives away the store.
Ian Fry- BUSTED
Actually Northern Europe, Russia and Canada have little interest in the climate becoming colder.
This is sort of like the movie “The Mouse That Roared”, except that instead of declaring war on the US in the normal sense, they are “guilting” into paying for their mystical demise. Why don’t we cut them a deal and make them the new Yucca Mountain?
Actually it's 100 Billion A YEAR for 10 years. One Trillion (but what's another trillion to this group?).
