Resistance to climate scam thriving

More media taking firm stand against alarmists

Beach conference

Cancun anti-climate beach conference.

Around the world more and more publications, commentators and blog writers are declaring opposition to, even outright disgust of, the global warming scam.

Increasingly, people are waking up to the fact that, in the words of senior IPCC official, Ottmar Edenhofer, we must “free ourselves from the illusion” that international climate policy has anything to do with environmental problems such as deforestation or the ozone hole.

That is in addition to the extreme disillusionment arising from the failure of the scientific climate predictions to come anywhere near true.

And that is additional to the unassailable refutations of the alarmists’ arguments, from claims of dangerous warming from the presence of CO2 (fundamental) to claims of warming itself (fundamental), sea level rise (fundamental), sea ice reduction (circumstantial), increased frequency and intensity of tropical cyclones (circumstantial), loss of glaciers (circumstantial), increased damage to coral reefs (misdirection), increased ocean “acidity” (blatant misdirection), movement of species (irrelevant) and increased neuroses brought on by fears of global warming (actually caused by the alarmists themselves, not their targets).

Here are two top-notch expressions of opposition to redistribution of funds in the name of fighting climate change – h/t Bob Carter.

Cancun Climate Summit Ridiculed in World Press

While United Nations global-warming dignitaries were invoking ancient Maya goddesses for help in hammering out a wealth-redistribution “climate” treaty, prominent columnists and publications around the world were heaping scorn and ridicule on the whole COP16 extravaganza currently under way in Cancun — even heralding the end of the whole “scam.”

From the United States and Canada to the United Kingdom, the amount of negative press for the climate hysterics — and their whole expensive confab in Mexico — is growing daily. And as UN leaders and climate negotiators ramp up the fear-mongering and propose ever-more ridiculous scams and taxes, the barrage of ridicule will likely continue.

“Scams die hard, but eventually they die, and when they do, nobody wants to get close to the corpse,” noted Washington Times editor emeritus Wesley Pruden in an opinion piece released last week. “The global-warming caravan has moved on, bound for a destination in oblivion.”

Skeptics Have Their Say at COP16, Press Refuses to Report

Amidst prayers to ancient Mayan goddesses, dire predictions of climate catastrophe, and alarmist proposals to ban everything from children to kerosene lamps, a few eminently qualified “skeptics” of the United Nations’ global-warming alarmism held a press conference at the summit in Cancun to share their views.

Organized by the Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT), a market-oriented non-profit organisation that deals with environmental and development issues, the press conference was promoted as “an opportunity for journalists to balance their coverage of COP16 by listening to all points of view.” Very few reporters, however, bothered to show up — let alone balance their coverage.

An activist in a polar bear suit did attend. He was wearing a sign reading “I am fine.” Somebody from a British newspaper showed up, too. She wrote a scathing article about the press conference, which she described as “bizarre.” And that was about the extent of the coverage.

But as the announcement of the event explained, it is important that the media take a look at what other scientists are saying. “The scientific case for catastrophic man-made global warming continues to erode along with public support around the globe,” CFACT stated. And if reporters had listened to what the experts had to say, they might have realised that the UN’s global-warming “science” is certainly not “settled.”

9 Thoughts on “Resistance to climate scam thriving

    “The global warming scare may have been fun for the children while it lasted. But the time has come for the joke to be declared well and truly over,” opined Christopher Booker in a column entitled “Cancun climate conference: the warmists’ last Mexican wave” appearing in the Telegraph.

    “What we are seeing here is one of the greatest collective flights from reality in the history of the human race,” he noted. “As western Europe shivers to a halt and our energy bills soar through the roof, the time has come when we should all start to get seriously angry with our politicians for being carried away by all this claptrap.”

    Well past time, and well and truly over.

    The Guardian is still stoically accentuating the positive. Unfortunately (and it seems lost on them), the positive is the same spin as Copenhagen, just different time and place.

    i.e. “noted” and “not legally binding”.

    And then the negative, starting with “However”.

    However, governments failed to reach agreement on how far overall global emissions should be cut, and there are many loopholes for countries to avoid making the deep reductions that scientists say are needed.

    And

    Cancún represented only incremental progress.

    To give the Guardian credit, they’ve used the word “emissions” instead of “harmful heat trapping gases” that can be found in the Sydney Morning Herald and elsewhere.

    “Deal is reached at Cancún summit”

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2010/dec/11/mexico-cancun-environment-climate-summit

    I wonder what the headline will be when they realise nothing of substance really happened at Cancun contrary to Connie Hedegaard’s summation:-

    “If you look at at what we have to do in the next year you can see that there is a very heavy work programme but it is definitely not as if we only agreed on process and then left the substance for Durban. There are lots of substantial issues that have been solved here,” she said.

    Like,

    Other measures agreed in outline included the setting up next year of a major climate fund panel to administer and deliver the billions needed for the developing world to adapt to climate change. In a concession to developing countries, this will be largely run by developing countries and not the World Bank.

    And not the UN either.

    Face it Connie, if the donor nations haven’t released $10bn in funds for “Fast Start” a year on, they’re hardly likely to be inclined to furnish a $100bn “major climate fund” are they?

    This is encouraging. Gotta say,too, that Richard C’s prolific postings (sometimes too prolific, but always on-topic and interesting) are much appreciated. I see RC that you are getting some in-article mentions at Jo Nova. Well done – you are in danger of becoming a Kiwi icon

  4. It would be well deserved. We’re all proud of him!

  5. Indeed!

    BTW, Ricard Black’s blog is interesting.
    The comments are a bit off colour. I am surprised the BBC mods let them through

    Not that encouraging Mike

    The Green Climate Fund is a different beast than Fast Start .

    Fast Start was by donor nation.

    Green Climate Fund is from whatever source available – global financial transactions, insurance, airline levies, antthing.

    I’m trying to work out whether the UN has the mandate to establish the US$100bn per year by 2020 Green Climate Fund.

    Have you noticed the Greenpeace (et a)l publicity stunts this year are all about sea level rise?
    Last year it was mostly about melting icecaps. Inconveniently the caps arn’t doing as much melting this year. Perhaps a bit too much ice all over Europe and the mid-west US at the moment to bring up the subject of water freezing..

    I haven’t noticed the sea level rising that much either
    check out this story http://www.spiked-online.com/index.php/site/article/9987
    the scare is there but no fall in land prices on Tuvalu

  9. Dr North has more evidence of global warming, including snow in Damascus.
