Skip to comments.Cancun climate change summit: scientists call for rationing in developed world
Posted on 11/29/2010 11:24:10 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Global warming is now such a serious threat to mankind that climate change experts are calling for Second World War-style rationing in rich countries to bring down carbon emissions.
In a series of papers published by the Royal Society, physicists and chemists from some of worlds most respected scientific institutions, including Oxford University and the Met Office, agreed that current plans to tackle global warming are not enough.
Unless emissions are reduced dramatically in the next ten years the world is set to see temperatures rise by more than 4C (7.2F) by as early as the 2060s, causing floods, droughts and mass migration.
As the world meets in Cancun, Mexico for the latest round of United Nations talks on climate change, the influential academics called for much tougher measures to cut carbon emissions....

Lawyers are the enemy, now more than ever.
Watch the wrap.
A bunch of rich, white, western elites gather in luxurious air conditioned hotels to dine on steak and lobster and complain about how everyone else is wasteful and destroying the environment.
Just another day in Obamaland.
It should read: Global warming is now such a serious threat to mankind that climate change experts are calling for Second World War-style rationing in rich countries to bring "them down to the level of third world countries."
To borrow from the movie ‘Alien’...”In Cancun no one can hear you scream.”
“Global warming is now such a serious threat to mankind that climate change experts are calling for Second World War-style rationing in rich countries to bring down carbon emissions.”
The next thing you know the liberals in the west will decide there are too many bodies in the developed world consuming too much per capita output in world resources and hence we need to eliminate 5 in every ten people in western developed nations to allow “emerging” nations (e.g. third world ) to develop fairly in the face of historical suppression of their societies.
Time to have China and India cut emissions, then.
Brought to you by the UN and GReenPeace.. nuff said..
Follow the money. Fascists reward their corporate partners. And we all thought Hitler was dead. Hah. THE BOYS FROM BRAZIL are environmentalists!!
why isn’t this conference being held in Copenhagen again????
What are they going to do with the perpetual, fastest growing segment of polluters in the world? The fastest developing largest economies of China and India? Wait till they all have cars.
What a crock!
Take a trip to Africa, India, China and wherever there are third world conditions, no one pays attention to emissions so why should it be harnessing the “West” (who do have emissions control and regulation)?
Will they participate?
No one is listening anymore, they can call all they want, there’s no answer.
All they will get is the middle finger.
Let them go to the root cause of the vehicle emissions- Saudi Oil! Tax the Saudis!lol
Legally Binding is a Surrender of National Sovereignty.
The UN and others are a cancer we should have nothing to do with.
If liberals are so Darwin, they should believe we ought to let all civilizations - example Haiti - go extinct so the fit can survive.
Did the attendees arrive by bicycle or sailboat?
These maggots, like Holdren, want us “de-developed” and poor to control us.
Mass third world immigration, taxation, unions, regulations and the GW lie are all parts of Soros grand plan of a New World Order.
Call me a tin hatter, I am right on the $$$.
Cheaper whores for the delegates in attendance.
Follow the dots. The only government capable of doing this is an autocratic, totalitarian government - very much one the efficient Chinese model proposed by Soros. I am not a Soros phobic as he is just one of many progressives with similar objectives. Whe he dies we will hardly notice his passing. His heir we immediately step up.
World calls for Cancun to use Global Warming retards for shark bait.
I prefer Ripley’s quote from Aliens - “ I say we take off, and nuke the site from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure.”
“causing floods, droughts”
One or the other, alarmists, pick one, eh?
the eco-KOOKS are frothing at the mouth to get their carbon-CON revenue racket going.
Vet: I hope they're dumb enough to try this.
Oh, so do I! Please, PLEASE, Democrats! Make this your SIGNATURE ISSUE in 2012!
You think 2010 was a rout? Watch when the Dhimmicrats try telling people they'll have their food purchases rationed for Gore-bull warning. There'll be pitchforks and torches. And not a few politicians run out of DC on a rail. Please, oh please, do this, Obama.
Two more years of Obama, and we won’t have enough industrial base left to qualify as “developed”.
But I've been told that this ISN'T a global conspiracy to attack capitalism and Western exceptionalism and push for Marxist redistribution of wealth to third world dictatorships and carbon credit scams.
>>One or the other, alarmists, pick one, eh?
And a new Ice Age as we start a period of dramatic global warming...
The weather was dreadful there....not enough globalwarming that far north.....
They’ll be lucky if it’s just pitchforks and torches, if you take my meaning..
I can’t believe that so many reasonably intelligent scientists got drawn into the hoax of global warming theory. Not one of these scientists can explain in any depth and detail how a very small amount of CO2 added to the atmosphere can possibly trap the huge amount of energy needed to warm up the earth by 3-5 degrees F. There has been a monumental breakdown in the scientific peer review process over the last 25 years.
There already is rationing....have they seent he purchasing power of consumers lately?
I have had a theory for quite a while now that what is driving public policy in the West is not socialism but a reaction by the old money elites to technological advances that allow the middle class to live almost as well as the truly rich.
The first tactic of the eiltes is to use media they control to denigrate middle class lifestyle and consumption. They introduce words like “McMansion” to the lexicon. There is nothing wrong with real mansions, the kind John Edwards, Al Gore, and Thomas Friedman live in, only the kind the upstart middle class enjoy. No SUVs for the common folk, but they are also fine for the rich, along with limos.
When public ridicule doesn’t work, they resort to writing laws to make sure the separation between the rich and the middle class remains wide and distinct.
No school vouchers for the people - private schools are for the elite.
No higher education admissions based on merit - that might keep “legacy” offspring out of the best universities.
No cell phone use in cars - that privilege is reserved for the rich with drivers, or public officials.
No big TVs allowed - home theater needs to be for the rich only.
No big cars, or even cars at all - public transit is for the masses.
No big homes allowed. Pretenders with 5,000 sf homes just won’t do.
And it goes on and on.
Of course, the global warming myth has been the best tool for burdening the middle class ever invented. This article shows the power elites have now dropped any attempt to hide their actual goal -— keep the middle class in their place so the old money types can keep their elevated and separate status.
Cancun ! Maybe they wont make it out of there ;) Alaska Airlines stopped service to Cancun months ago , because of safety issues .
The scene where Dominic speaks somberly of deforrestation in Latin America to a crowd of champagne-sipping elitists is classic, all the while he's hording water and plotting to give Bolivia back to a former dictator.
Roger, message received. I was thinking the same thing, but didn't want to get smacked by the mods for advocating the "V" word. Even though it would happen on its own anyway.
I figured what the heck and watched it.
OMG! Now I know why the Libs have such a wet dream over this movie as it vindicates everything that's been said about Global Warming.
All the buzz words, the spin, the lies, is like watching a bad movie. Oh wait!
The character that plays President Bush has about 3 lines in the whole movie and always has a quizzical look on his face. The guy that plays Cheney admits about a hundred times that he screwed up and should have listened to the far-left and their wacky ideas. And it's clear he runs the office of the President (who gets killed when his convoy is overcome by a very cold low pressure system. wtf)
I laughed pretty much the whole movie.
Oh, and it's a direct rip-off from the book ICE!

Another one: .
Exposing the hoax of Global warming is now such a serious threat to
mankind the Communism, Socialism and Marxist agenda that climate change "experts" are calling for Second World War-style rationing in rich countries to bring down carbon emissions quickly, before everyone catches on ."
What do you think policies promoting abortion & homosexuality are really all about?
Have you EVER known ANY government to be wrong about anything? Ever?
No Certainly not. Pay no attention to those men behind the curtains and OBEY!
Brilliant analysis! That sure makes a lot of sense. I am going to have to think about your theory every time something comes out in the "news" denigrating the middle class and their simple pleasures.
“a reaction by the old money elites to technological advances that allow the middle class to live almost as well as the truly rich”
Right. But also, it’s “we’re taking THEIR resources”. Us little plebs should be more “sustainable”, and not use too much of THEIR resources. Don’t we realize that all the gold & oil & stuff belongs to them? Who do we think we are, using up THEIR stuff.
The leftists know that their little global warming hoax has been exposed and that nothing will be coming of it...so, they feel safe now in openly proposing the socialist ideas that would have come out of a climate change agreement.
The True Believers are still pushing this nonsense? Really?
The legal class has effectively killed America.
Moonbat propagandists are the enemy.
The next thing you know the liberals in the west will decide there are too many bodies in the developed world consuming too much per capita output in world resources and hence we need to eliminate 5 in every ten people in western developed nations to allow emerging nations (e.g. third world ) to develop fairly in the face of historical suppression of their societies.*
And we on the Right will be the 5 that must go.
Happens in Communist countries all the time.
Ask the families of the 100 million killed by Communist regimes last century.....
*World calls for Cancun to use Global Warming retards for shark bait.*
I’d vote for that!
Too cold in Denmark this time of year.
The UN and others are a cancer we should have nothing to do with.*
Anything the UN makes as a law is as legally binding as anything a 3 year old writes on a piece of toilet paper.
Countries that go along with the UN are giving up or trying to gravy up.
Dismantle and defund the vile UN!
