Famed BBC TV Naturist Deranged Fearmongering at UN Conf.

David Attenborough’s climate change fearmongering makes him look a fool"

by Andrew Bolt column in the Daily Telegraph (Australia) 5 Dec 2018

It’s embarrassing to see Sir David Attenborough make such a fool of himself after decades of brilliant filmmaking. Organisers of this week’s United Nations’ global warming conference, in Poland, asked the documentary superstar to make a speech that would wake the dead.

And he gave it his best shot, trying to sound like an Old Testament prophet but so overdoing the fearmongering that he seemed deranged.

“Right now, we are facing a man-made disaster of global scale,” he thundered.

“Our greatest threat in thousands of years. Climate change.

“If we don’t take action, the collapse of our civilisations and the extinction of much of the natural world is on the horizon.”

Yes, I know much of the media treated this tosh like it was the word from Heaven, which shows most journalists cannot be trusted when reporting on this new religion.

But seriously: is global warming truly a bigger threat than, say, the Black Death that wiped out maybe half Europe’s population?

Bigger than the Spanish flu that killed up to 5 per cent of the world’s population in 1918?

How can that be, when there’s been little more warming this century? When we’re actually getting fewer cyclones and generally bigger grain harvests? And how can anyone truly believe our civilisations will “collapse”, when we can now build whole cities in Middle Eastern deserts?

But Attenborough hadn’t finished burbling fantasies that were cheered by the elites inside, delegates from nearly 200 nations, but which looked nothing like the reality outside. "Take action!", he urged the leaders: “The people are behind you, supporting you in making tough decisions, but they are also willing to make sacrifices in their daily lives.”

They are? In France at that very moment, people were showing exactly the opposite — rioting across the nation and burning barricades in Paris in protests triggered by the “tough” decision of President Emmanuel Macron to impose a global warming tax on diesel.

It made Australia’s own protests against the carbon tax seem a tea party.

These weeks of rioting have been so massive and deadly — three people killed so far — that the French government suspended this global warming tax just hours after Attenborough was insisting the public was screaming for more.

How strange. Attenborough got famous by carefully studying animals, but seems not to have studied humans at all.

This is really disappointing, but I guess I shouldn’t really be surprised.

..and about that UN Climate Conference. OMG...

quote (SAME AUTHOR AS ABOVE)

It's a feeding frenzy at the UN climate conference. There's the excuse for taxpayer-paid travel, of course, and the excuse to extort huge donations from the guilty rich:

An analysis of delegates by Carbon Brief found Guinea topped the list with 406 delegates, down 86 from last time. The Democratic Republic of Congo is second, with 237. Host nation Polan­d is third, with 211 delegates, followed by Ivory Coast, whose delegation this year has more than halved to 208 people...

Those huge delegations from these poor nations are actually down on last time? Wow...(snipo)

According to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, 22,771 people have gone to Katowice. This includes 13,898 people representing specific part­ies, 7331 from observer organisations — such as scientists, business groups and various NGOs — and 1541 journalists. In terms of delegates, at 13898, it is the biggest number since Paris in 2015.

All that carbon pollution to fly in nearly 14,000 people! It's a menace to the planet. And what's this about 7331 "observers"? Is this like a sports event for salvation seekers? Do they cheer? Pass the popcorn? But I can see why journalists love this global warming scare. There aren't many excuses to get 1541 jetting off to an exotic location on business expenses. The Australian delegation is 30, and that's already more than required to say "no". President Donald Trump has cut America's delegation to just 44, less that half the number that Barack Obama sent to the flop in Copenhagen. endquote

COP24 is sponsored by coal companies and now this!

6 Dec: Heartland Institute: PRESS RELEASE: Solidarity, Heartland Institute Sign Historic Climate Communique at COP24
By James Taylor, Jim Lakely
Polish labor union that stood up to the Soviet Bloc and changed the world joins Heartland on front lines of resistance to climate alarmism
KATOWICE, POLAND (December 6, 2018) – The Heartland Institute and representatives of Solidarity, the historic labor union founded by Nobel Peace Prize winner Lech Walesa that helped bring down the Iron Curtain, signed a joint statement on Wednesday calling on the United Nations at COP24 to ensure the “restoration of the Scientific Method and the dismissal of ideological dogma at the United Nations.”

The joint statement, created at Solidarity’s prompting and written cooperatively between the two organizations on December 5, was submitted to the UN Conference of the Parties climate conference in Katowice today…

The statement also made clear that none of the signatories oppose “the goal of clean air nor supports the elimination of coal from the world’s energy portfolio.”...

It seems that the personableness of most celebrities is in inverse proportion to their intelligence. It’s sad to watch someone who believes their own bulls*it. At least with Al Bore, we know he did it for the money.

can you imagine all the gloBULL warming heads exploding? some of the tweets from COP24 in Katowice:

TWEET: Chloe Farand, DeSmogUK, (gloBULL warming website)
The Polish pavilion is indeed a eulogy to coal or, as it calls it, “black gold”. There is coal soap, coal earrings, coal cufflinks and necklets. Coal is described as “incredibly soft and fragile” and a “challenging material” praised as “a hidden charm”. Not a joke

TWEET: UKYCC (UK Youth Climate Coalition)
When we say the influence of coal and corporate sponsorship at #COP24 is all around us. We also mean literally! The Katowice Pavillion features genuine coal. What a symbol to send to the world

The only thing real about “global warming” is the “global” part: it is a “GLOBAList” scam.

The easiest way expose the fakery of the global warming elites is their hypocritical behavior when they go to these conferences.

These people are flying on private jets that use more fuel in a couple of hours than ordinary people buy in a year for their car.

And then they start lecturing the rest of us to cut back, make do with less and “conserve”.

F@#k them and their woke BS !

Around 70,000 years ago, humanity's global population dropped down to only a few thousand individuals, and it had major effects on our species.

David Attenborough has done a lot of very useful work. I’m inclined to give him a pass for having gone dotty about “climate” in his extreme old age. The headline says “deranged,” but I’m thinking more “dementia.”

I hope for Attenborough’s sake, and for those at the conference, that he’ s a “naturalist” and not a “naturist.”

And it is not about climate. It IS about ending Capitalism and redistributing wealth.
