« Obama quits - Part Deux | Main | Obama's Day Of Truth »

They fell for it again ...

And these people want to design the New World Order:

Some people will sign anything that includes phrases like, "global effort," "international community," and "planetary." Such was the case at COP 16, this year's United Nations Conference on Climate Change in Cancun, Mexico.

This year, CFACT students created two mock-petitions to test U.N. Delegates. The first asked participants to help destabilize the United States economy, the second to ban water.

The first project, entitled "Petition to Set a Global Standard" sought to isolate and punish the United States of America for defying the international community, by refusing to bite, hook, line and sinker on the bait that is the Kyoto Protocol ... Specifically, the scheme seeks to lower the U.S. GDP by 6% over a ten year period, unless the U.S. signs a U.N. treaty on global warming.

This would be an extremely radical move by the United Nations. Even so, radical left-wing environmentalists from around the world scrambled eagerly to sign.

The second project was as successful as the first. It was euphemistically entitled "Petition to Ban the Use of Dihydrogen Monoxide (DHMO)" (translation: water). It was designed to show that if official U.N. delegates could be duped by college students into banning water, that they could essentially fall for anything, including pseudo-scientific studies which claim to show that global warming is man-caused.

Despite the apparently not-so-obvious reference to H2O, almost every delegate that collegian students approached signed their petition to ban that all too dangerous substance, which contributes to the greenhouse effect, is the major substance in acid rain, and is fatal if inhaled.

You just can't lose with the old "dihydrogen monoxide" gag.

The real irony is that airheaded liberals won't be able even to figure out the irony.

"Water is the strong stuff,
it holds up whales and ships.
But water is the wrong stuff,
don't let it get past your lips!
It wets your suits and rots your boots,
puts aches in all your bones,
dillute the stuff with whiskey, man,
or leave it well alone!"

warchild:

Again, there is a real debate about the pace and rhythm of global warming, and about the degree to which it has been caused (or can be slowed) by human activity. But at the first Tea Party rally I attended, at the Washington Monument earlier this year, the crowd--bristling with placards about the Second Amendment's being the correction--was treated to an arm-waving speech by a caricature English peer named Lord Monckton, who led them in the edifying call-and-response: "All together. Global warming is?" "Bullshit." "Obama cannot hear you. Global warming is?" "bullshit." "That's bettah." I don't remember ever seeing grown-ups behave less seriously, at least in an election season.

Upset Old Guy:

You're right, warchild! The Purple People Beater's, "Wha'da' we want? Health care! When da' we want it? Now!" chant is far superior. The respondents have two answers to remember... and they combine for more syllables as well.

Global warming, the way its described by the UN IPCC

Once they get over and throw away their "Global warming caused by SUV's OMFG the Polar Berz iz gonna DIE! Implement SOcializm NAU!!!!!!!" fetish, then it might be possible to see if there is even anything there.

In short, the fact that every single proposed solution is related to socialism or attacking the US, tells me everythign that needs to be known.

Harmon:

Climate change is real, and is occurring right now.

Of course that is a good thing, because as far as I know, the only way to stop it is to stop the planet's rotation and get rid of the atmosphere. Although with the sunspot cycles, I suppose it could be argued that a slight change would still be occurring on planet Earth, so perhaps we should turn off the sun too.

By the way war child, anthropogenic global warming IS bullshit...

AndyN:

Well, water vapor is by far the most common greenhouse gas. If you buy into the theory - as all the delegates at that conference do - that greenhouse gases are the primary cause of climate change, banning water would be a much more efficient solution than banning carbon emissions.
