Cancun, Who Are The Deniers Now?

Look at those Sierra Club juveniles, burying their heads in the sand. Do they not understand economics? Maybe when their funding disappears and they can't afford to go to the next beach party, they might grow-up and understand that they are the ones damaging the poorest nations by refusing to let them develop and use cheap power.

Few heads of state are expected to attend this year's talks – in sharp contrast to the summit in Copenhagen. However, Hugo Ch├ívez, president of Venezuela, Rafael Correa, president of Ecuador, and Bolivia's Evo Morales have said they will be there. All were accused by Gordon Brown of "holding the world to ransom" at the Copenhagen talks. They will be joined by the presidents of Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Colombia, Brazil and Guatemala.
Who would have guessed that Hugo Chavez would be there bleating for money. Gordon Brown was right about "holding the world to ransom"!

Someone has to pull the plug on the climate scam. Funding needs to be rerouted to REAL pollution problems. Send those Sierra kids to Africa to dig water wells, at least then they will make up for all the pollution that exists because money has been diverted to third world despots.

Last week at Cancun, in an attempt to influence richer countries to agree to give £20billion immediately to poorer ones to offset the results of warming, the US-based International Food Policy Research Institute warned that global temperatures would be 6.5 degrees higher by 2100, leading to rocketing food prices and a decline in production.

The maths isn't complicated. If the planet were going to be six degrees hotter by the century's end, it should be getting warmer by 0.6 degrees each decade; if two degrees, then by 0.2 degrees every ten years. Fortunately, it isn't.
Actually, with the exception of 1998 - a 'blip' year when temperatures spiked because of a strong 'El Nino' effect (the cyclical warming of the southern Pacific that affects weather around the world) - the data on the Met Office's and CRU's own websites show that global temperatures have been flat, not for ten, but for the past 15 years.
It's not about pollution or even climate change, it's all about wealth redistribution.

Apparently the despots and dictators are not satisfied with fleecing their own people and feel the need with a little help from friends in the socialist camps in Europe and North America to push this Ponzi Scheme.

If you had jets, mansions and private armies to maintain you might be a little more sympathetic!

I think England and other places might love some global warming now. I know I would have loved it last wkend in Edmonton.
Must be so many proud parents around the world, seeing their kids in the sand.

Was I the only one praying for a huge rogue wave ?.

HA, that's funny Bert! They are predicting that oceans will rise by 20 feet, so you might not be far off in your praying.

I got back from Cancun (Riviera Maya) about 3 weeks ago. Beautiful place. Why not hold the next climate summit in Yellowknife? In January? All the freaks can fly up there on Buffalo Air in the back of a frosty DC-3 and not a climate controlled Gulfstream!
