UN security council to consider climate change peacekeeping
http://www.guardian.co.uk/ ^

Posted on 07/20/2011 4:20:47 PM PDT by jakerobins

A special meeting of the United Nations security council is due to consider whether to expand its mission to keep the peace in an era of climate change.

Small island states, which could disappear beneath rising seas, are pushing the security council to intervene to combat the threat to their existence.

There has been talk, meanwhile, of a new environmental peacekeeping force – green helmets – which could step into conflicts caused by shrinking resources.

The UN secretary general, Ban Ki-Moon, is expected to address the meeting on Wednesday.

Yes we pay dearly for these a**holes. Like a green helmet is going to matter. Everything the UN has touched has turned into a pile of stinking dung. How are they going to police the volcanoes? Not to mention hurricanes and typhoons. Then there is me and my burning in a 55 gallon drum. Please come to my house and you will find targets of guys in little green helmets everywhere. The madness is only overshadowed by the shear stupidity of that organization.

I can’t believe anyone actually takes these clowns seriously anymore. I’ll bet Algore has the green helmet concession. Follow the money!

Green Helmets! Gee, where do I sign up? Can’t wait to see what these clowns actually get into. My guess is that they travel the Midwest, testing cow a$$holes for methane levels on a hot summer day.

So, in other words, George Soros has a mansion on some tiny South Pacific atoll and wants to enslave all of mankind as not to lose some beach sand. Got it!

It’s almost like each day the bozos at the UN compete to see who can come up with the most inane and inappropriate proposal.

I know it sounds like some birchite nightmare but the notion of conducting ‘environmental interventions’ by having UN envirocommados seize industrial plants or power plants , all in the US of course, that are guilty of some ‘environmental offense’ must seem a goal to work for by UN US haters.

Well crap!1 Now we gotta go find that pic of the blue helmet laying on the ground with a bullet hole in it and photoshop it to be green.

Anybody know what shade of green they’re using?

Someone must have urinated on their blue helmets to turn them green.

Admit it. You knew this was coming!


Small island states, which could disappear as sea levels rise, want the UN security council to intervene.

In Jan 2013, this nonsense will come to a screeching halt. It is up to every one of us to ensure that.

Until then, Zero will push this crap ‘Fast and Furious” Pun intended.

This is all so ignorant and ridiculous!! Following the end of the glacial maximum some 20,000 years ago, the oceans have risen about 300 feet World wide. Check this graph.

There were times in the post-glacial sea level rise, about 14,000 years ago, when the oceans rose 60 feet in less than 10 years.

Things like that happen naturally. Plan for it. We can't stop it.

It's simple, don't build homes in New Orleans for example. It's just a matter of time. It's gonna flood.

I love how at least one of those “small island states” is actively trying to shake everyone down because the land they sit on, being atoll, is sinking.

Maybe we can loan them the power jacks our debt ceiling has been sitting on and tell them to shut up already?
