Did UK Government Keep Cold Winter Warning Secret In Run-Up To UN Climate Conference?

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

by Dr. Benny Peiser

London, 6 January: The Global Warming Policy Foundation has called on the House of Commons Transport Select Committee to set up a parliamentary inquiry into the winter advice the Government received by the Met Office and the renewed failure of both the Government and local authorities to prepare the UK transport system for the third severe winter in a row.

In a letter to the Chair of the Transport Committee, Louise Ellman, MP, the GWPF stresses that “Lessons have to be learned well in advance of the start of next year’s winter so that we are much better prepared if it is severe again.”

In recent days, the Met Office has stated that it apparently warned the Cabinet Office in late October that the start of the winter would be exceptionally cold. It would appear that the extreme weather warning was kept secret from the public. (more…)

Climate Change CO2 Corruption Caravan Continues At Cancun, Commercially: You Must Pay For Your Sins

Monday, December 20th, 2010

by Dennis Ambler

The Cancun Climate Conference and most national policies confirm equalization of wealth as the real objective. Everything is based on falsified evidence and completely unnecessary. If a private citizen practiced such deception it would constitute fraud. Despite evidence of manipulated data, corrupted science, false claims, and failed predictions the nonsense continues.

On one side of this tropical strip, UN delegates, media, and observers shuttle between luxurious hotels, posh restaurants, a white sandy beach with turquoise water, and a modern convention center where they spend their time bemoaning man-made climate change and planning the energy future for the rest of the globe.

One the other side of the Cancun “Hotel Zoneria,” just 10 or 15 kilometers from downtown, live countless numbers of Mexican families without electricity, running water, or any of the other modern conveniences we in the developed world take for granted everyday. (more…)

Ban Ki Moon: “We Need Global Governance”

Ban Ki Moon promises to fundamentally transform the global economy to solve climate change

Fundamental transformation?  In 2008, candidate Obama promised to “fundamentally transform” America which has resulted in skyrocketing debt and sustained joblessness. We surely do not want that on a global scale!

Yet, that is exactly what U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki Moon called for on Tuesday in Cancun, Mexico, at the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change, Conference of the Parties.

We need to fundamentally transform the global economybased on low-carbon, clean energy resources.”

In Cancun they claimed that climate change is “an economic and social crisis, a political crisisa food and energy crisis, and an ecological crisis.”

They called for justice: “climate justiceecological justiceeconomic justicegender justice and historical justice [meaning that they are victims of climate change caused by rich nations].”

They concluded their Marxist diatribe chanting, “Let’s globalise the struggle! Let’s globalise hope!”

Earlier, a global warming scientist said rationing and 20 years of zero economic growth were necessary to stem the affects of climate change.

The abdication of the West

Thursday, December 9th, 2010

From The Viscount Monckton of Brenchley

Cancun, Mexico

I usually add some gentle humor to these reports. Not today. Read this and weep. Notwithstanding the carefully-orchestrated propaganda to the effect that nothing much will be decided at the UN climate conference here in Cancun, the decisions to be made here this week signal nothing less than the abdication of the West. The governing class in what was once proudly known as the Free World is silently, casually letting go of liberty, prosperity, and even democracy itself. No one in the mainstream media will tell you this, not so much because they do not see as because they do not bl**dy care.

The 33-page Note (FCCC/AWGLCA/2010/CRP.2) by the Chairman of the “Ad-Hoc Working Group on Long-Term Co-operative Action under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change”, entitled Possible elements of the outcome, reveals all. Or, rather, it reveals nothing, unless one understands what the complex, obscure jargon means. All UNFCCC documents at the Cancun conference, specifically including Possible elements of the outcome, are drafted with what is called “transparent impenetrability”. The intention is that the documents should not be understood, but that later we shall be told they were in the public domain all the time, so what are we complaining about?

Since the Chairman’s note is very long, I shall summarize the main points: (more…)

From The Viscount Monckton of Brenchley

Cancun, Mexico

I am in the plenary session hall at the Moon Palace, where diligent readers of this humble blog will recall that Ms. Figurehead, the president of the UN climate conference here in Cancun, opened these quaint proceedings last week with a prayer to the Moon Goddess of the ancient dwellers in what is now Mexico.

The vast, characterless session hall is known – appropriately enough – as the Cenote hall. Those familiar with the Spanish dialects of the New World will recognize the appropriateness of this designation. For a cenote is a sinkhole. Cenotes are widespread in the Mexican jungle, beneath great limestone caps. They were regarded as sacred by the “first nations”, as the indigenous peoples are now coyly called, and archaeologists have had much fun diving beneath the waters in the cenotes to recover all manner of pre-Columbian artefacts and assorted archaeological knick-knacks.

Cancun, Mexico

I dined with Dr. Roy Spencer as the Atlantic rollers swished and crashed against the long, sandy beach here in Cancun. We ate coconut-crusted camarones. Appropriately, shrimps in the Spanish-speaking world are named after the British Prime Minister, the truest of true believers in the New-Age religion that is the Church of “Global Warming”.

Cameron, or “Dave”, as he matily likes to be known, had been careful not to reveal his blind faith in the febrile fatuities of the forecasters of fashionable fatalism to his followers in Not The Conservative Party before they picked him as their leader: but, in his very first speech as Supreme Shrimp, he made it plain to the fawning news media that Saving The Planet would be his very firstest priority, yes indeedy.

More Nations May Pledge Carbon Limits at U.N. Climate Talks

Monday, December 6th, 2010

Source:  CNSNews

By Arthur Max

Cancun, Mexico (AP) – More countries are expected this week to pledge specific actions to limit carbon emissions over the next decade, in what would be “very good news” for arduous negotiations on a climate change agreement, says host country Mexico.

On Monday, newly arrived government ministers begin applying political weight to talks being held in Cancun, as the 193-nation U.N. climate conference moves into its decisive final week.

The meeting hopes to restore credibility to the talks after the last summit in Copenhagen a year ago, which failed to agree on any binding measures to rein in emissions of global-warming gases. A nonbinding political document, the Copenhagen Accord, outlined important compromises among key players, including the United States and China, but its adoption was blocked by a handful of dissident nations.

In subsequent months, however, 140 countries declared their endorsement of the accord, and 85 of them made specific pledges for reducing carbon emissions, or at least limited their growth, by 2020. (more…)

From Nopenhagen to Yes We Cancun

Monday, December 6th, 2010

by Christopher Monckton

Thanks to Wikileaks, everyone here in the Mañana Republic of Mexico now knows just how much bullying and arm-twisting the administration of Barack Obama in the United States applied to various countries around the world so that they would (and did) sign up to the Copenhagen climate accord.

Without that pressure, nothing at all would have happened at Copenhagen this time last year, and “the Process” – the interminable round of flatulent annual climate conferences in exotic locations at taxpayers’ expense – would have tipped into the gulch forever. (more…)

Global Warming summit begins with prayer to Mayan goddess Ixchel — and Call for 20 years of rationing

Friday, December 3rd, 2010

If you think there is no religious aspect to the environmental movement, think again.

Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change and a native of Costa Rica, opened the summit with an invokation to the ancient Mayan jaguar goddess Ixchel, saying that Ixchel was:

“the goddess of reason, creativity and weaving. May she inspire you — because today, you are gathered in Cancun to weave together the elements of a solid response to climate change, using both reason and creativity as your tools.”

According to Figueres, Ixchel is also a Mayan moon goddess. (more…)

The sun is setting on the global-warming crowd

I guess all the hotels in Moose Jaw are booked this time of year.

That might explain why they’re holding that international climate summit in Cancun instead.

Or perhaps they just don’t like the idea of single digit temperatures as well as headlines in the local news reading “Cold, stormy winter with lots of snow expected for Saskatchewan.”

The article goes on to explain that a “La Nina” event in the South Pacific is expected to cause a cold winter in Canada. Such events are part of the so-called “Pacific Decadal Oscillation.” This is a phenomenon that causes huge temperature swings all over the globe but remains only dimly understood by climate scientists.

They’re too busy studying manmade global warming. That’s where the money is, and there’s a lot of it. A study by the Science and Public Policy Institute states that the U.S. government has spent $32 billion on climate research over the past 20 years.

Spending so much on studying on greenhouse gases is a misuse of resources, says William Happer a Princeton physicist who has a habit of injecting realism into the debate over global warming.

“I think most of the current climate change is natural, but people have become so fixated on CO-2 that people no longer look at natural causes,” Happer said. (more…)

The Climate Conference Echo Chamber

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

Phelim McAleer is a journalist. In his capacity as a journalist, he is a skeptic. The role of skeptic – the one who asks the questions, the one who demands answers – is generally a lauded role in modern society. At least .. as long as there’s a Republican on the hot seat. But in climate circles, they have another word, a pejorative term, for skeptics: deniers. The church of global warming has no tolerance for heresy, and even less for probing questions or investigations. And so it is that the journalist Phelim McAleer was denied press credentials for the UN Climate Change Conference taking place in sunny Cancun, Mexico this week. (Certainly a better PR choice than frigid Copenhagen.) (more…)

Click here: Cancun climate summit: Pachauri asks Mexico to be realistic – Yahoo! India News

New Delhi, Aug 19 (PTI) With hopes of a consensus eluding the Cancun climate meet, IPCC chairman R K Pachauri has urged host Mexico to be realistic and work hard in pushing rich nations to put climate funds on the table. “There will be least expectations (of a consensus) this time (at Cancun).

I doubt if you will get anything close to a global agreement. It is not possible particularly considering the situation in some countries,” Pachauri said, apparently referring to delay of passage of US climate law. (more…)

World government lite – the Cancun Treaty is coming

Friday, June 11th, 2010

From The Viscount Monckton of Brenchley in Bonn, Germany

Well, here we are again. In Bonn, Germany, that is, for the latest in a long series of two-week negotiating sessions intended to lead to the triumphant signing of a binding climate treaty in Cancun, Mexico, this December.

Why Germany? The UN’s bureaucrats were humiliated by the chaotic failure of its attempt at Copenhagen last December, under the charmingly inept direction of the Danish Prime Minister, who was so far out of his depth that he could not even recall the names of the heads of government he was calling to speak.

The UN did not want the Copenhagen catastrophe to repeat itself in the manana republic of Mexico, so it scheduled three two-week sessions for bureaucrats to prepare the draft of what they hope will be a legally-binding treaty to be signed by all the member states in Cancun. (more…)
