Pious nonsense

Pious nonsense

Even The Age doesn’t fall for it, sensibly preferring to rely on its own views rather than cutting and pasting other editors’ nonsense. And nonsense it most certainly is, written by the most lefty and greeny of the world’s newspapers, the UK Guardian. Full of pious platitudes and vacuous statements, it is a painful read:

Unless we combine to take decisive action, climate change will ravage our planet, and with it our prosperity and security. The dangers have been becoming apparent for a generation. Now the facts have started to speak: 11 of the past 14 years have been the warmest on record [“on record” being since about 1850, conveniently ignoring the MWP and the Roman warm period – Ed], the Arctic ice-cap is melting and last year’s inflamed oil and food prices provide a foretaste of future havoc. In scientific journals the question is no longer whether humans are to blame, but how little time we have got left to limit the damage [Haven’t read the CRU emails yet, then? – Ed]. Yet so far the world’s response has been feeble and half-hearted.

Climate change has been caused over centuries [yes, exactly, without any help from humans – Ed], has consequences that will endure for all time and our prospects of taming it will be determined in the next 14 days. We call on the representatives of the 192 countries gathered in Copenhagen not to hesitate, not to fall into dispute, not to blame each other but to seize opportunity from the greatest modern failure of politics. This should not be a fight between the rich world and the poor world, or between east and west. Climate change affects everyone, and must be solved by everyone.

“Taming” the climate? Really? Good luck with that! And then there is the inevitable rush towards global socialism, and the accompanying scaling back of Western economies:

Social justice demands that the industrialised world digs deep into its pockets and pledges cash to help poorer countries adapt to climate change, and clean technologies to enable them to grow economically without growing their emissions.

The transformation will be costly, but many times less than the bill for bailing out global finance — and far less costly than the consequences of doing nothing.

Many of us, particularly in the developed world, will have to change our lifestyles. The era of flights that cost less than the taxi ride to the airport is drawing to a close. We will have to shop, eat and travel more intelligently. We will have to pay more for our energy, and use less of it.

And in doing so, it will condemn billions of people in developing countries to a life of misery and poverty. Finally, the predictable, tired and hackneyed “green energy myth”:

But the shift to a low-carbon society holds out the prospect of more opportunity than sacrifice. Already some countries have recognized that embracing the transformation can bring growth, jobs and better quality lives. The flow of capital tells its own story: last year for the first time more was invested in renewable forms of energy than producing electricity from fossil fuels.

As if renewables can replace fossil fuels in the next 20 or even 50 years! It’s nothing short of a joke. And the biggest joke of all is that all of this will be pointless. The effect of CO2 emissions on the climate is so small that all the trillions of dollars that will be wasted as a result of any Copenhagen Treaty will make not an iota of difference. Just like Kyoto made no difference either. The climate will do what the climate will do, and there ain’t nothing we can do about it.

Pious climate nonsense.

    You just gotta laugh.Ok lets reduce airline flights by 50% and watch the tourism industry go down the toilet.
    How many third world countries depend on tourism for their livelihood.
    I will give you a starter for 10 THE MALDIVES.

  2. ah but Kyoto DID make a big difference to Australia..
    Howard basically STOLE the land to sequester to make the targets from our Farmers! no reparation.
    Peter Spencer is high up a tower on his land- the sherrifs are to reposess- due to his inabilty to make a profit on what Howard left of his farm.. no grazing its against Kyoto… he has had to watch his sheep starve, and he is willing to die, 200 court attempts and NO ONE will touch it as it is government Not Judicial??
    see Agmates. web page, or climatesceptics web site for film and datails of how you can help him…KRudd ignores him!

    on this above, hmm? I would like to know how they think those without jobs savings or a paid for home with all energy saving devices, and a posh car..are meant to go without even more?
    I have ONE appliance I have bought new in over 30 years, the pc i write from, my desk ,chair, lounge, rugs, are all scrounged from the local tip.
    I havent bought more than a few pairs of socks new in that same time, everything is op-shop or hand me downs.
    I can only cook with my oven, on weekends to save Power , off peak, same as washing my clothes
    I use one load of water, and do 4 loads in it, the old fashioned way we used to do it.lift it out wring by hand, add new load, repeat… hard work!
    Automatic washers should be banned immediately, a huge saving in water instantly!
    A full tank of fuel is a big event. and it lasts a month at least, and I live rural, so you see I get out very little. no pictures,outings anywhere or packaged food.
    yet
    everything will rise in price even more…my power bill for winter was 140, and I felt guilty it was more than a dollar a day for 90 days…
    and then I read pure drivel like the above, and wonder why??? i bother or give a shit about being frugal(apart from poverty) when this mob of idiots are so ignorant and do so little to put THEIR money where their mouths are.!
