Climategate bust: UNís last, desperate bid for unelected world government depends on Bonn
MensNewsDaily.com ^ | April 10, 2010 | Christopher Monckton

Posted on 04/11/2010 12:21:28 AM PDT by RogerFGay

There are not many empty seats in the dismal, echoing conference chamber in the ghastly concrete box that is the Hotel Maritim here in Bonn, where the UN’s latest attempt to maneuver the 194 States Parties to the Framework Convention on Climate Change gets underway today.

The “international community”, as it is now called, is here in full force, in the shape of expensively-suited, shiny-shod bureaucrats with an urbane manner and absolutely no knowledge of climate science whatsoever.

However, one empty chair is a pointer of things to come. The Holy See – a tiny nation in its own right, with a billion citizens around the world – has left its chair empty. And that is significant. If “global warming” still mattered, the Vatican would make sure that its representatives were present throughout this gloomy gathering of world-government wannabes.

This emergency conference, called by the UN’s bureaucrats because they were terrified that Cancun this December might fail as spectacularly as Copenhagen did last year, is a much quieter affair than Copenhagen. Not only has the air of triumphalism gone, after the scandals of Climategate, Himalayagate, Amazongate and so forth, but the belief that “global warming” is a global crisis has largely gone too.

There are a few true-believers left among the national delegates, but more of them than before are open to discussion of the previously-forbidden question – what if the climate extremists have made the whole thing up?

The Chinese Xinhua News Agency, for instance, came up to the table manned by the environmental campaigners of the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow, which takes a hard-boiled, cynical view of the notion that a tiny increase in the atmospheric concentration of a trace gas is likely to cause a thousand international disasters.

The reporters were genuinely interested to hear that there is another side to the story. Huan Gongdi, the Agency’s senior correspondent in Germany, asked me what I thought of the Copenhagen accord (a waste of time), what was happening in Bonn (a desperate attempt to ram through a binding Treaty that can be put in front of the US Senate before the mid-term elections make Senate acceptance of any such treaty unthinkable), and whether or not there was a climate crisis anyway (there isn’t).

I explained to Mr. Huan that even if the UN had not exaggerated the warming effect of CO2 many times over there was still nothing we could do about the supposed “crisis”, because we were emitting so little of the stuff in the first place.

For the record, I did the sum in front of him. The atmospheric concentration of CO2 today is about 388 parts per million by volume. However, we are adding just 2 ppmv a year to the air. So the warming we cause each year, even if one believes the UN’s wild exaggerations of CO2’s warming effect, is just 4.7 times the natural logarithm of the proportionate increase in CO2 concentration from 388 to 390 ppmv.

Thus, 4.7 ln(390/388) = 0.043 Fahrenheit degrees – less than a twentieth of a Fahrenheit degree of “global warming” every year. That is all. Putting it another way, it would take almost a quarter of a century with no carbon-emitting activity at all – not a single train, plane, automobile, or fossil-fueled power station – to forestall just 1 Fahrenheit degree of “global warming”.

That is why no Treaty based on controlling the amount of carbon dioxide the world emits can possibly work. And that is why there is no hurry anyway. The only reason for the UN’s sense of urgency – a panic no longer felt by the majority of the delegates here – is that the bureaucrats know the game is up. Opinion polls throughout the free world show that no one now believes a word of the climate extremists’ nonsense any more. If they can’t get a binding treaty this year, they won’t get one at all, and they know it.

I shall be reporting frequently from the conference as events unfold.

That won’t stop obama. He’s going ahead with our own american version of carbon regulations.

Well, that's good news from the good guys for a change.

Humanity 1, Marxism-Leninism in New Bottles 0.

Obama will go ahead with the carbon credits not because he believes in global warming but because he believes in taxing industry and controlling everything.

Not to mention that some of his supporters will reap huge amounts of money by running the trading in carbon credits.

The Nazis used environmentalism to control the population. Today is no different.

As is Bill Richardson and the enviroradicals in New Mexico. They just published their draft version of cap and tax that will drive even more industry across the border to Texas.

"There are a few true-believers left among the national delegates"

There are no true-believers in Global Warming/Climate Change among the leadership. Their only belief is in Internatioal Socialism.

Who did The Obammunist make commissar of Energy and Climate Change? None other than Carol Browner, former director of Socialists International. Browner is appointed without scrutingy by congress yet is charged by The Obammunist with enforcing the most powerful political agenda, running EPA behind the scenes, making regulations, appointing apparatchiks.

The leadership are political ideologues. The true believers are what Lenin called "cannon fodder for the revolution", unwitting dupes.

You don't see or hear of Carol Browner anywhere. She is too powerful.

We all must accept a much lower standard of living in order to fight Global Cooling.

Except for rich, self-serving folks like Gore, etc. Only fair they have their multiple mansions, private jets, limos, etc while the rest of us live in tiny crackerboxes and ride bicyles.

Like how Red China used to be before it adopted Capitalism and semi-free enterprise.

A good thing to remember.

The Democrats of today kind of resemble the National Socialists.

The truth will win out.

All of zero’s more heinous acts of treachery against the U.S. will be unwound.

Meanwhile, zero is Public Enemy No. 1.

I believe the papal contingent is much too busy trying to stay out of the limelight after the ongoing kerfluffle of pedophilia. And does anyone really think the pope has much credibility anymore? Just look to the pro-abort “catholics” in the US and the ILLEGALS who are said to be catholic and yet have no qualms about breaking US laws and stealing from us CITIZENS.

It wouldn’t surprise me if the pedophile press recently is related to hard-ball politics. The left constantly uses extortion tactics to force its will. If they won’t support, then extort.

Yes, they do resemble the Nazis.

Certainly. Gore's superiority to the rest of us peasants is ob....... er ....obvio......... er ....not very obvious.

Funniest idea yet.

Unless a hurricane hits at that time. That would be too funny.

Yeah, as I remembered there has been a hurricane/tropical storm in every month on the calendar. And so I looked on wiki and it says there have been 9 in December since 1870. So I guess it could happen.
