Climate Crusaders Conned in Copenhagen

The Carbon Sense Coalition today called on the Australian Parliament to repudiate the Copenhagen giveaways promised by PM Rudd to the failed states of Africa and the welfare beggars of the islands.

The Chairman of “Carbon Sense”, Mr Viv Forbes, said that the three Climate Crusaders, Obama, Brown and Rudd, had been comprehensively conned in Copenhagen by African mendicants and fakers from the islands.

“They have agreed to hand over mega-bucks of our money (anywhere from $5 billion to $100 billion) as compensation for alleged damage caused by our production of carbon dioxide – the Africans citing climate damage and the islanders claiming rising sea levels. “Even a cursory examination of the facts would prove that both of these claims are fraudulent.

Pirates in Copenhagen

The Somali pirates have nothing on the bunch who turned up in Copenhagen, seeking to plunder the world and divvy up the loot under the guise of ‘saving the planet’. I heard even Mugabe was there, after reducing his nation from rich Rhodesia to poor Zimbabwe, looking for a handout under the latest fable, ‘the Carbon Debt’ supposedly owed to the poor countries by the rich countries.

There is only one carbon debt, and that is the debt every inhabitant of this planet owes to carbon dioxide. Without adequate amounts of this in the atmosphere, plant life suffocates, and we could not grow enough crops to feed the population. To quote Freeman Dyson ‘The fundamental reason why carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is critically important to biology is that there is so little of it. A field of corn growing in full sunlight in the middle of the day uses up all of the carbon dioxide within a metre of the ground in about five minutes’.

Surely it’s time to confront the immorality of scaring children witless with images of ‘threatened bears’ (polar and koala) and ‘dying’ reefs and then exploiting their fears with cheap political stunts.

Please, no more scares and no more talkfests, whether in Mexico in 2010, or Cairns in 2011 (neither city has reported snow yet). The money would be better spent on improved and reliable water, power and transport systems. Education about how this country became prosperous would also be a good investment into a prosperous future otherwise we can descend from A to Z (Australia to Zimbabwe) faster than in a Mad Max movie.

The Other Copenhagen Climate Conference

By Cliff Ollier, 2009.

I was lucky enough to be invited to the “Climate Challenge” conference in Copenhagen in December 2009. The aim of this small two-day conference was to throw a challenge to the science of the main Copenhagen conference. We had a few experts who presented their views and evidence.

Niklas Morner, world expert on sea level, showed that sea levels are not rising at an alarming rate anywhere, including the Maldives and Tuvalu.

A Choice for our Times – Freedom or International Bureaucracy?

“A free society releases the energies and abilities of people to pursue their own objectives. It prevents some people from arbitrarily suppressing others. It does not prevent some people from achieving positions of privilege, but so long as freedom is maintained, it prevents those positions of privilege from becoming institutionalized; they are subject to continued attack by other able, ambitious people. Freedom means diversity but also mobility. It preserves the opportunity for today’s disadvantaged to become tomorrow’s privileged and, in the process, enables everyone, from top to bottom, to enjoy a fuller and richer life”.

Milton Friedman in his great book “Free to Choose”. (Dr Friedman got a Nobel Prize back in the day when they meant something)

Lessons from Europe

While the Rudd climate regiment is stuck in Copenhagen, achieving not much, they should look beyond their posh hotel for some lessons in energy generation.

Lynch Mob in Copenhagen

The events at Copenhagen reveal a latter day lynch mob in full fury. In this case, the innocent victim is Carbon Dioxide. Without fair trial it has been deemed guilty of a most heinous crime, warming the planet.

There is ample evidence that it is innocent of this crime, and there has been no fair trial to allow this evidence to be heard. Indeed it would be difficult to find an unbiased jury, as even kindergarten children have been brainwashed with horror stories of ‘carbon footprints’. Shame on the people who do this to the minds of the young who trust them.

Carbon dioxide has been made a scapegoat for real pollution which can and should be addressed by each and every country in which it occurs. Real pollutants are particulate matter, noxious gases and heavy metal waste into the air or into the water. Carbon dioxide is none of these – it is a fertiliser essential to plant life, and essential to human life. It is not guilty of the crimes of which it is accused and the lynch mob in Copenhagen should be dispersed before another innocent victim is consigned to the gallows.

A tombstone in Boot Hill said:

“He wuz right and we wuz wrong,
But we strung him up, and now he’s gone.”

We’ll sure miss our friend Carbon Dioxide if we allow this lynching to proceed.
