Fmr. Thatcher advisor Lord Monckton evicted from UN climate summit after challenging global warming

Fmr. Thatcher advisor Lord Monckton evicted from UN climate summit after challenging global warming -- 'Escorted from the hall and security officers stripped him of his UN credentials'

Excerpt: UK's Lord Christopher Monckton, a climate skeptic, gets evicted

After the news conference, and as diplomats gathered for the climate conference president's assessment of how close countries are to agreement, Monckton quietly slipped into the seat reserved for the delegation of Myanmar and clicked the button to speak.

"In the 16 years we have been coming to these conferences, there has been no global warming," Monckton said as confused murmurs filled the hall and then turned into a chorus of boos.

The stunt infuriated negotiators and activists here who gather every year to address what they believe is one of the world's top threats, the steady rise of man-made global warming.

As Monckton was escorted from the hall and security officers stripped him of his U.N. credentials, several people noted that just a few hours earlier a group of young activists had been thrown out of the convention center and deported. Their crime: unfurling an unauthorized banner calling for the Qatari hosts to lead the negotiations to a strong conclusion.

By late today, several activists attending the conference had posted calls to "deport Monckton" on their Twitter feeds.

End Greenwire excerpt.

Climate Depot Note: Monckton was referring to the latest temerature data showing a 16 year stall in global warming.

He was threatening a multi-billion dollar industry and massive global power grab. Of course they had to silence him.

Several Arab royal families also spend their summers in Marbella for many years. Thus, there will be a meeting between Michelle Obama and Prince Salman bin Abdul Aziz, governor of Riyadh and brother of the late King Fahd of Saudi Arabia, while another meeting is shuffled from the first lady with the owner of Málaga CF, billionaire businessman, son of Qatar’s Interior Minister and member of the Qatari royal family, Abdullah Al Thani.-——El Mundo, Saturday, August 07, 2010

No dissent allowed from the orthodoxy of the global warming. Any priest not adhereing to and embracing stated opinions, ficticious science and just plain screed will be evicted and defrocked. Amen

Qatar is also the place where Obama wanted the Afghan Taliban, whom the ignorant Biden assures us is not our enemy, to set up an office so there could be peace talks there.

Oztrich Boy~:” Climate science afraid of Peer review”

They are not afraid of peer review , they are afraid of the FACTS !
We can’t allow any ‘nay-sayers’ in our U.N. conference since we , the U.N. see it as our means to tax all the affluent contries .
The U.N. will redistribute the (tax ) wealth to the less industious countries (leveling the field).
Internet tax and internet control is the next U.N. money grab .
Agenda #21 is another redistribution of wealth by the U.N.
Speaking of wealth , have you ever noticed that the U.N. has NEVER BEEN AUDITED , not even internally . There is more corruption in that one single organization than in all of Afghanistan !!

Does this power grab sound familiar ? It is the same philosophy espoused by our President-elect / Emporer / Great Pretender.

Get out of the U.N. now
The United States has financially propped up this organization too long , and contributes 40% of its operating capital; other countries don’t pay their own share
Get the U.N. back to Europe where it belongs; it has long outlived its usefulness and is a commie organization.

They would burn him at the stake, except that would contribute to global warming. No, wait; when did they have to follow the rules they impose on us serfs?

Get the kindling.

A year ago some members of Libya's Transitional National Council complained about Libyan militias selecting Belhadj aka al Hasidi to head up the Tripoli Military Council. They were concerned because Belhadj/Hasidi was backed by Qatar, and Qatar favors sheikhs who align themselves with Iran.

Fast forward to this past September... and those Libyans look prescient. Look who led the attack on the US diplomatic mission in Benghazi- none other than Belhadj/al Hasidi.

All that smoozing Moochelle Obama did with the Qataris and instead of getting a lousy T-shirt we lose 4 men.

And now the Global Warming pimps are in Qatar again.

As Monckton was escorted from the hall and security officers stripped him of his U.N. credentials...

The world is slipping into a new Dark Age. No dissent allowed. No skepticism. Scientific curiosity replaced by voting as if a "majority" can decree the physical world to their liking.

Despicable Monckton. Who does he think he is? Did anyone hear what Myanmar had to say about “steady man-made global warming” or did Monckton steal their thunder?
