Hot Air Not “Warming” from DenmarkDecember 19, 2009
Predictably the Copenhagen climate conference is yielding much “hot” air and not much in the way of any real developments. This is a good thing since there is no carbon dioxide problem and no anthropogenic warming of the climate. Every few years the true believers, and the duplicitous gather to have a grand get together (at taxpayers expense!) to talk…talk…TALK about, well, nothing. It’s almost like a Monty Python skit (think the Election Night “Silly Party, Very Silly Party…” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=31FFTx6AKmU). Although the mainstream media continue to provide sober reporting on the talks I have been encouraged that even they are noting the increasingly blatant hypocritical behavior of the attendees (private jets, limos, etc.; aren’t you glad that we don’t get all the government we pay for :)). Even public polling in the US is showing a distinct lack of interest or even acceptance of the Warming Party Line. Some commentators, usually not of the mainstream (unfortunately), are predicting Copenhagen as the death-blow to the entire charade; the point where the the tide turns. I’m not so sure, but all the Climategate reporting certainly seems to be making a difference.
