Kyoto Fraud Revealed
Walter Russell Mead
Posted In: General
When the idiotic Kyoto Protocol was put before the US Senate, 95 senators voted against this confused and destructive initiative on the grounds that, as designed, the measure would simply ship American jobs to China and other countries without reducing greenhouse gasses.
For years, green activists have mourned and bemoaned the shortsightedness of the US. How could we sit out from something so noble, so planet saving, so wise as the sacred Kyoto Protocol? We have been listening to the green moral scolds for twenty years: those fat, dumb and ignorant Americans are simply too stupid and too selfish to save Planet Earth.

Take note of the “R’s” in there. A RINO hunting we will go.
Six obvious RINO's, eject them from the senate at the next opportunity.
The RNC pushed heavily for Chafee over his more Conservative primary competitor.
Chafee is gone, Gregg did not run for re-election and is gone after this term
The other 4 aren’t going anywhere soon
“Kyoto is not about climate change. It is the first component of an authentic global governance.”
— Jacques Chirac, 2000, then President of France
Kyoto is about the economy, about leveling the playing field for big businesses worldwide.
—Margot Wallstrom, former EU Environment Minister
“Controlling carbon is a bureaucrats dream. If you control carbon, you control life”
—Dr. Richard Lindzen, MIT climate scientist, March 2007
That was the whole idea in the first place, with select Western "investors" getting a guaranteed return on the outsourcing, both on the foreign production and in "carbon credits."
I attended a lecture about 5 years ago on going green. For a few days, I listened to several speakers about the importance of renewable energy. All fine and dandy, and I’m all for renewable energy.
About the 2nd or 3rd day, I sat through a 3 hour lecture from a fellow from Germany, explaining how America was so far behind the 8 ball, and how since 1950, Germany was building green homes. Radiant heat, using tiles, geo-thermal, the whole bit, and how 70% of german homes had embraced the idea, and how they were so much better for the world, etc, then America. Basically, he ragged that only 1-2% of our homes would meet german standards.
God bless the fellow who stood up and stated “The reason you have rebuilt all your homes, is because they were destroyed in the 40’s, and America and the rest of the evil world is paying to rebuild your country”
The audience went silent, but I later shook that fellows hand near the elevator. Turns out he was a professor from MIT. He’s probably out of a job by now, with comments like that. But he was spot on.
The whole Kyoto has been a shell game, and these politicians know it, but they don’t care. They, like Gore are in it for the $$$$$ and their Chinese masters.
Global warming is so OVER.
Global climate disruption? That's the history of the freakin' PLANET, for heaven's sake.
Why are there farms under the Sahara? Why is Sundaland under water? Why are the cliff houses abandoned?
Only 10 000 years ago, my land was under two miles of ice.
So a change of a couple of degrees?
That's GLOBAL NATURAL BEHAVIOR.
Most of California was built since 1950 and not to those standards. Build a structure out of masonry here and the next earthquake will teach you a lesson.
Environmental management is all about dealing with competing risks and the opportunities afforded by local circumstance. That is but one reason why centralized planning is destructive and incapable. The other biggie is that the power to specify is the power to pick winners and losers in the marketplace; it invites corruption.
Oil is renewable energy. When we run low we pump more and renew our supplies.
“Renewable” energy is another nonsense buzz word from the EnviroTard socialists.
That's precisely why the Kyoto Protocols specifically EXCLUDED China. They needed someplace to put their polluting industries, without it counting against them.
This millionaire idiot invented global warming practcally by himself. He has managed to gather many Obersturmführers along the way.
