Skip to comments.U.S. called ‘immoral’ at United Nations climate conference
Posted on 12/09/2011 10:40:17 AM PST by jmcenanly
As the United Nations climate talks in Durban progress, they are becoming increasingly combative, offering a soft preview of the kind of political atmosphere destined to prevail in a world where agriculture in vulnerable regions of the planet begins to succumb to catastrophic drought and flooding. The United States and Canada have drawn intense criticism here during the first two days of the conference.
Participants lamented Canadas new status as a laggard country when that nations conservative government announced its plan to quit the Kyoto Protocol, which it called a thing of the past. And, to almost no ones surprise, people inside the conference halls and out on the streets joined together in labeling the United States enemy number one for the way it is wielding its vast global influence in the service of intransigence, backpedaling and obfuscation. A top South African religious leader Tuesday called the high-profile climate-change skepticism of many U.S. leaders immoral.
At a well-attended briefing Tuesday morning held by NGO umbrella organization Climate Action Network, Bishop Geoff Davies, executive director of the Southern African Faith Communities Environment Institute, highlighted what he saw as the contradiction inherent in the fact that the people of the United States are deeply religious but also alienated from the responsibility faith demands to address suffering tied to climate-altering pollution.

A real US Leader would make sure no American official even attended these things.
“people of the United States are deeply religious but also alienated from the responsibility faith demands to address suffering tied to climate-altering pollution”
I would like to see a documented case of this.
Gee, we’re immoral for not going along and succumbing to their global extortion racket.
In a just world an ambassador Bolton or Kirkpatrick would have told them all to go to hell a long time ago.
There is no such thing as “climate-altering pollution”.
What alters the climate is the Sun’s VARIABILITY and COSMIC RAY VARIABILITY (Which has been directly correlated to Cloud production).
Human CO2 output as a component of climate variability is STATISTICALLY INSIGNIFICANT.
My dream in life is to have a genuine American as President who will tell the UN to go F themselves.
Here's your new slogan: U.S. out of U.N ... AND U.N. out of U.S!
The US IS immoral, but it has nothing to do with those enviro-nuts claims. More like...porn, abortion, fag marriage, communism, fraud, corruption, and boomers who refuse to retire while simultaneously sucking down every last penny that young Americans have for their future (looking at you SS & Medicare).
Stop writing those immoral checks!
As it turns out the UN is, in general, totally amoral. They have no standing for complaints until they evacuate the East River.
“Bishop Geoff Davies”
Since he spells Jeff as Geoff, I’m sure he will understand the blunt suggestion, from this “immoral” American to “bugger off”.
Considering the UN concept of morality, what they call immorality is true morality.
Talk about a perfect cue for a nice raunchy taco fart and a noisy exit. "There's some climate-altering pollution for ya."
No kidding. I heard on the radio yesterday that the NAACP is taking complaints to the United Nations about some of our state's voter laws!!! Go here to read it yourself!
This came up on the liberal MSNBC Chris Hayes show last weekend. The greenies believe that Obama has abandoned them on Manmade climate change AFTER they strongly supported his election 2008.
They are mad that American voters belief in man-caused climate change has dropped significally between Bush and Obama administrations, and Obama wont talk about it(Climate Change). This is the huge irony: when the voters run away from the POTUS's political party positions.
No more banning light bulbs.
Just more proof we're living in a Bizzaro World. Made possible by global political correctness and the worldwide version of affirmative action.
Have they rescinded the light bulb ban at the end of this month?
Wonder why they don't bring this up to China? Are the UN all crooks and deviants?
A Soros-financed organization. Follow the cash.
It seems hard to believe that they think anyone will still fall for the scam.
Time for the UN to think up a new hoax.........
They’re trying to push their agenda ahead of schedule before the IPCC house of cards collapses completely.
They are getting very desperate since the release of the emails basically destroyed their LIBERAL UTOPIAN FANTASY of A UN controlled body re-distributing our money as they see fit. Notice if we give them control of our country and money we won’t be “Immoral” anymore. The only way to defeat these anti american socialist democrat frauds is to politically destroy them in the 2012 elections and then clean house in all government agencies that have been infested by them.
Which candidate has demanded those AH’s in the U.N. building be evicted from U.S. soil?
We are an immoral nation. Our sodomite leaders are forcing 3rd World Nations to remove their sodomy laws through “foreign aid” so that they can relive their past where homosexual kings forced their soldiers and boys to form sex acts on him or else be killed or put in prison.
We have forced the vile morality of Satan into our military and removed the Christian paradigm—the one where are Rights are from God—not Barney Frank.
We have no Objective Truth as the guiding force of Right and Wrong because of the sodomite in office and the sodomite in the DOE who is forcing sick, vile ideas into the heads of 5 year olds and telling them (to destroy reason) that this vile behavior is “good” and should be “celebrated”.
We can never be moral again if we do not force the Day of Silence and other celebrations of evil out of the public schools.
Like the Pope has stated==The Age of Relativism—is one of no Truth. There will only be evil celebrated.
defund the UN.
Wow! A double moon. I must have been really pissed.
The UN should demand that Canada and the USA no longer provide one cent to their organization. And they should show it by relinquishing the property back to the Rockefeller family and moving out. That will put the Canadians and USA in their place. :)
“My dream in life is to have a genuine American as President who will tell the UN to go F themselves.”
And more importantly, cut off the 22% of their budget that we fund, and tell them that they have to move their HQ out of New York City and put it in some Third World Country! Then NYC would not have to suffer the gaggle of “towel heads” who drive around in their limos parking with impunity!
This year the 100W bulbs go out but it's unclear if we can still import them legally
Sorry for the confusion, I meant that no other similar bans will be signed into law passed by congress anytime soon.
Man, they must have REALLY called China bad names then.
The UN had Qadhafy’s Libya chairing its “Human Rights Commission” for a term. Enough said.
No surprise - the United Nations has, for many, long years, been little more than a communist front organization devoted to One World, Collective Government.
The only use for a conference like this is target practice.
I’m shocked...shocked and stunned, but it appears that the delegates to this conference now essentially nothing about science and are not keeping up with the latest research:
Global warming theory is unquestionably the biggest and most sophisticated financial scam every attempted in the history of the world. I applaud Canada and the US for finally standing strong to stop this scam.
Whoops, thanks sickoflibs
Correction to post 39...that should read:
...the delegates to this conference know essentially nothing about science and are not keeping up with the latest research:
(It always amazes me how little global warming nuts actually know about science and yet how strident they are in their ignorant opinions.)
Now that’s the classic “pot calling the kettle black”......
I ran some numbers recently and it looks to me like the typical middle income Baby Boomer, if he/she is lucky enough to live to about 80, will approximately get their social security taxes returned to them in benefits with an inflation adjustment but with zero real return on investment. That means, of course, that we all could have done far better in mandatory IRAs. This is the obvious result of giving huge windfall benefits to early participants in social security (such as my late father) who received far more in benefits than they ever paid in social security taxes even after adjusting for inflation.
That's our brave political class in Washington screwing over younger Americans to buy votes from seniors and fight off liberal election opponents.
Well, our country did elect Obama, so I guess he has some point.
Don’t even bother explaining to these lib idiots about “climate change”. The only thing they believe is that man is responsible for everything baaaaad..
My dream in life is to have a genuine American as President who will tell the UN to go F themselves.”
I am telling all liberal friends and family to go F themselves. At least I can do that!! Try it, it’s fun!! You don’t have to put up with them any longer, because they all think your a jerk. They think that anyway! So might as well tell them how you really feel.
It’s way past time to throw these commie ***holes out of the U.S. We’ve got enough of our own commies that we have to deal with.
This is what passes for the language of science these days.
