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.........
