Lord Monckton has emailed from Bonn, scene of the mischief. And of course, he brought some of his own.
“Mother Earth” was, in fact, hired by CFACT and Monckton to sell carbon credit “indulgences” (wrought in the image of the the “Gore-inator”) to conference-goers.
I write this from the hall at the UN’s emergency climate talks in Bonn. I’ve had a chance to speak with a large number of delegates. Several of them are still in the fantasy world of “global warming”.
The UN is still demoralized from its failure to reach a global warming treaty in Copenhagen, but is (as Admiral Yamamoto once put it) “filled with a terrible resolve”. Climategate was the first of a series of revelations about errors, omissions and evasions by the UN on climate. Yet most of the delegates here plan to do whatever is necessary to divert attention from the collapse of climate science, proclaim the sanctity of the UN’s now-discredited science documents, and railroad us all into a world government treaty that will be a blow to our freedom and prosperity. This treaty would end democracy worldwide and forever.
I’m in Bonn with CFACT. We landed the most prominent location at the conference for our display. It is right next to the entrance to the main hall, in such a good place that the Gender Equality Women’s Group complained to Yvo de Boer, the retiring secretary of the UN Convention, that we skeptics had been given a prominent booth when we should not have been given one at all. Mr. De Boer gently explained, to much shaking of heads among the Gender Equality crones, that all opinions were welcome. So CFACT has supplied delegates with carbon credits bearing Al Gore’s head, and carbon indulgences handed out by Christina Wilson dressed as the Tibetan Tsumu-Langma, or Goddess Mother Earth.
I’ve had the chance to speak to delegates in great detail. One sign of hope is the many delegates who tell me this is the first time they’ve been exposed to alternative views on climate. Their interest is genuine and their minds are opening. Unfortunately I don’t think the same level of openness exists in the back rooms where the real deals are being made. ” Read more.
