Copenhagen Day 6 – protests dominated by "anti-capitalist speeches"

Anti-globalisation, anti-capitalist…

Anti-globalisation, anti-capitalist…

The media is full of the protests yesterday for “tough action” on “global warming”, but the reality is that the environmental movement has been hijacked by an extreme left-wing, anti-globalisation and anti-capitalist agenda. Even the Sydney Morning Herald admits it. One of the banners read “Change the politics. Not the climate”! They don’t give a toss about the climate, they only want to change the system. And, naturally, the protests turned violent. What is it with the left and violence?

Tens of thousands of protesters have marched through Copenhagen calling for tough action from the UN climate conference, after police arrested about 400 rioters at the start of the demonstration.

Organisers of the rally had repeatedly urged the crowd to remain calm and friendly before the march began on Saturday, and the speeches were dominated by calls for social justice and critiques of global capitalism.

But soon after the demonstration started, police arrested about 400 protesters, masked youths dressed in black who threw bricks and firecrackers and smashed windows in the city centre.

Around 50 police in riot gear moved in, forcing the protesters to the ground and bundling them into vans. (source)

And in London, Barmy Prince Charlie has kept the climate madness flag flying by issuing a memorandum with Nobel laureates that compares the threat of “global warming” to that of nuclear destruction!

The group of Nobel winners, together with Prince Charles, issued a memorandum which declared the best chance of stopping catastrophic climate change is to keep the predicted temperature rise at or below 2 degrees C (3.6 degrees F).

Without action, they envisaged three times that temperature rise, which would mean global warming would cause a huge rise in sea levels, and swamp the cities of London, Paris and Copenhagen.

The communique is likely to influence world leaders at the forthcoming international conference on climate change in Copenhagen at the end of this year. [Only if they’re completely stupid – oh, they probably are… – Ed]

More than 20 Nobel Laureates, including President Obama’s Energy Secretary Steven Chu, gathered at the meeting in London to discuss the threat of global warming.

After three days the St James’s Palace Nobel Laureate Symposium concluded that climate change posed a danger of similar proportions to “the threat posed to civilisation by the advent of thermonuclear weapons”.

The memorandum read: “The St James’s Palace Memorandum calls for a global deal on climate change that matches the scale and urgency of the human, ecological and economic crises facing the world today. (source)

After that load of cobblers, we really need some sanity, courtesy of Piers Ackerman:

Professor Kellow, an expert reviewer for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s fourth report, said despite the denials made by key scientists whose work has been used to support the global warming theory, the leaked emails show the manipulation of the analysis was “in many ways worse than many of us expected when we knew about this case from the outside without access to these kinds of exchanges”.

“What you have is evidence of a quite clear willingness to manipulate raw data to suit predetermined results, you’ve got a resistance to any notion of transparency, an active resistance to freedom of information requests or quite reasonable requests from scientists to have a look at data so that it can be verified,” Professor Kellow said.

He listed the malpractices as evidence of attempts to subvert the peer-review process, evidence of pressure being placed on editors to reject dissident views on climate science, and then attempts by the lead authors in the IPCC report to keep any opposing peer-reviewed science that has managed to get into the literature out of the IPCC report and, ultimately, ensuring it doesn’t find its way into the all-important summary for policy makers, which, he said, was about all the politicians and bureaucrats read.

The policy makers are now convinced, according to Professor Kellow, that earth’s climate system is like a kind of thermostat in which we can dial in a particular level of CO2 and get a two-degree temperature rise over the next 100 years.

In the professor’s view, “anyone who knows anything about climate science will tell you that that’s nonsense”.

Very expensive nonsense, too, if the farcical plan to salve the consciences of Western Greens by transferring the capital and industries of developed nations to the Third World is agreed to this week in Copenhagen. (source)

Climate sense is hard to come by at the moment…


  1. It is quite simple, really: they are demanding their SERFDOM.

    Global Warming-IS- Human / Industrial Waste!
    The best indisputable SCIENCE example that should be the #1 item on the Copenhagen Agenda would be the toxic waste dump, the size of Texas, 900 miles off of the United States and Canadian West Coast.
    That is a Big SCIENCE problem with no dedicated U.S SCIENCE and INNOVATION DEPARTMENT to address the issue. The U.S (or Canada) has not even sent out a SCIENCE research vessel to evaluate this ecological disaster; neither country wants to take the responsibility for the industrial/human pollution or even acknowledge its existence.
    No Profit-No Action!-No SCIENCE! Will the World Trade Organization and the New Industrial World Order address the issue? Where is their World SCIENCE Department?
    Can the problem be solved with SCIENCE? Probably so, Americans are very ingenious primarily because we were raised with the compliments of Freedom and Democracy and are free thinking individuals. We could probably figure a way to clean up the mess and possibly make a profit doing so.
    We can do nothing until we have a DEPARTMENT OF SCIENCE that is free to address SCIENCE and to develop the advancement of SCIENCE. (Yes, for the sake of humanity; SCIENCE FIRST-PANDERING SECOND.)
