The United Nations is useless...

Quote:
Christopher Monckton created considerable controversy last week with his article questioning the science that claims human activity is responsible for climate change. Now he challenges the economic assumptions of the Stern report.

The views of 200 readers who emailed me are in the link above. About a third are scientists, including well-known climatologists and a physicist who confirmed my calculations. Some advise governments.

Nearly all condemn the "consensus". Most feel that instead of apologising, the UN has misled them, especially by using the defective "hockey-stick" temperature graph.

Why should anyone be surprised? The UN is made up of largely socialist or worse countries whose main goal is to take the U.S. down a peg or two. Unfortunately for them, the U.S. didn't bite on Kyoto. By 2010 China's carbon emissions will surpass the U.S. and they're not even part of Kyoto. They'll be adding 168 new coal-fired generating plants in the next 2 years. Until there's solid evidence of man-made global warming, we should stick to cutting air pollutants and cleaner water measures, something we can see an actual return for our investment right here in Canada.

Not according to every other party except the Conservatives... :roll:

If Kyoto was anything other than a socialist wealth-redistribution scheme, I could get behind it. It's our planet and we need to stop polluting it. Unfortunately, Kyoto is only a list of dates & targets with a "Pay Your Way" scheme attached. I wonder if someone actually said "Open your mouth and close your eyes!" to Jean Chretien when he signed Kyoto?

I suspect that it was another one of those cynical, political moves of the Liberals. I bet they signed on to Kyoto expecting it was just another phony UN initiative that would soon fall by the wayside and be forgotten and that they would never actually be expected to live up to. That's why they did virtually nothing for all those years to meet its goals. But at the time they signed, it sure looked like it would be another one of those "feel good, do nothing" efforts that would win votes at home.

Global Warming has turned more into a religion that science, with UN as it's high priests.

I find it interesting how the UN attacks Canada now, when our government has said we can't do it, but are commited to reducing our output - but when the liberals paid lipservice and did nothing nobody said anything. Typical.
