Why would the Climate Summit errupt in thunderous applause for Hugo Chavez? How does he tie in as a major proponent for saving the planet from disasterous over-heating of the thermosphere? Well, apparently for reasons that would seem to have nothing to do with the AGW crisis the summit is purportedly addressing.
Whether or not the earth is warming, whether or not whatever warming may be caused from trace greenhouse gas atmospheric CO2 levels rising from the infinitesimal 0.024% of the atmosphere to the barely greater 0.038% percent of the world's atmosphere, whether or not this increase is related to industrial activities or is natural, whether or not the earth's climate is currently the ideal climate and would be disastrously worse if the average temperature were 0.5 degrees warmer, it matters nothing to these people.
As discussed here, former US Senator Tim Wirth, the current chairman of the United Nations Foundation, has said the following:
“We’ve got to ride the global-warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing, in terms of economic policy and environmental policy.”
New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman may think the earth is hot, flat and crowded (he actually believes such assertions are penetratingly intelligent, and wrote a book with that title) declares he doesn’t care if global warming is a “hoax” because, even if it is, the fear of it will force us to do what we need to do. By this he is apparently referring to developing means to derive energy from... something else. And no energy ffom nuclear fuels either (that's a no-no as well for the green crowd).
By design, our leaders were to come from the people, serve their nation and return to their lives at home. The reason the proponents of global warming and thus government have such unmerited faith in government and so little concern for the freedom of the people is they do not consider themselves...
of the people.
