IPCC Admits EVEN MORE Errors

Posted by Casey on January 22, 2010

green_idea_ipcc The arrogance of these greenies is almost unbearable.  Yesterday I told you that the IPCC was forced to admit they’d lied about some of their claims, and lifted them from magazine articles that weren’t based on any science or research … but hypothesis.

Today it’s more of the same.  Along with a defiant refusal to step down by the IPCC’s fearless fraud leader, Dr Rajendra Pachauri.  Who as it turns out, has NO climate science credentials at all.  He’s the literal equivalent of Joe the Plummer dictating climate policy.

The IPCC’s 2007 report, which won it the Nobel Peace Prize, said that the probability of Himalayan glaciers “disappearing by the year 2035 and perhaps sooner is very high”.

But it emerged last week that the forecast was based not on a consensus among climate change experts, but on a media interview with a single Indian glaciologist in 1999.

The IPCC admitted on Thursday that the prediction was “poorly substantiated” in the latest of a series of blows to the panel’s credibility.

Gee, another Nobel Prize awarded based on fraud … shocking.

Syed Hasnain, the Indian glaciologist erroneously quoted as making the 2035 prediction, said that responsibility had to lie with them. “It is the lead authors — blame goes to them,” he told The Times. “There are many mistakes in it. It is a very poorly made report.”

He and other leading glaciologists pointed out at least five glaring errors

in the relevant section.

It says the total area of Himalyan glaciers “will likely shrink from the present 500,000 to 100,000 square kilometers by the year 2035”. There are only 33,000 square kilometers of glaciers in the Himalayas.

There’s more errors highlighted in the article, including the IPCC using the World Wildlife Fund (the people who scare your children with dead animals) as a source of information.  The IPCC is not supposed to use advocacy groups for data.  That last part should be a no brainer, but I guess the lines get blurred when you’ve ceased to be a scientific entity and instead become an advocacy group yourself.

Dumbass Celebrities Record New Song To Raise Awareness Of Non-Existent Global Warming

Posted by Casey on September 14, 2009

How do you tell burnouts they’ve done too much dope?  The same way you tell the rest of the retards who believe this garbage.  You overwhelm them with facts until their heads explode.

AFP:

British rock group Duran Duran and heavy metal band Scorpions are among 55 world celebrities who have joined in recording a song to draw attention to the global warming crisis, organisers said on Monday.

The song is part of a mass media campaign on the threats of climate change organised by the Geneva-based Global Humanitarian Forum, headed by former UN secretary general Kofi Annan.

The song entitled “Beds’r Burning”, which was originally recorded by the Australian group Midnight Oil in the 1980s, can be downloaded from the Internet for free and will be presented to the public at a launch in Paris on October 1.

Ah man … it’s bad enough they’re peddling lies, but to desecrate a classic like “Beds’r Burning?”

This is exactly why I created the ‘Comprehensive Link List Disproving Global Warming.’ 

Now go forth and spread the truth about this myth.

Twinkle, Twinkle Little Palestinian Terrorist

Posted by Casey on January 15, 2009

I had this forwarded to me from a friend, and felt it worth sharing. Not because you don’t already know this, but so that you have a source of info to share with others.

Be sure to watch until near the end when there is video footage of Palestinian terrorists using small children as human shields.

Don’t forget about Assud, the Jew eating rabbit, that Hamas uses to indoctrinate kids. Unfortunately, the IAF killed him in the latest hostilities.

Before Assud, there was Farfur the mouse who was assasinated by a Mossad agent, and Nakhol who died from cancer after Israel refused to treat him.

Iran Enriching Uranium In Huge Amount … Israel Ready To Strike

Posted by Casey on November 8, 2007

Remember when Iran told the world that they only wanted to have heavy-water nuclear reactors so they could cure cancer and AIDS? Then they claimed to have cured AIDS without the help of uranium? Funny thing was that they didn’t end their nuclear program with that great scientific breakthrough (that they didn’t share with anyone). Perhaps Mahmoud Ahmadinejad saying Iran didn’t have any gays had something to do with it. Then again, that was just a slip of the tongue.

Anyway, we all know there have been some major problems with Iran cooperating with the UN on their nuclear program. They have been impeding the UN’s ability to monitor their program and they are enriching uranium at a march larger scale than originally thought.

Just so you know, about a 100 enrichment centrifuges are necessary to enrich uranium to about 3.5% to be used in a nuclear reactor. You’d need thousands of enrichment centrifuges to enrich uranium to 90% for a bomb. Iran has 3,000 enrichment centrifuges, and Israel is getting itchy.

A claim by President Ahmadinejad that Iran has 3,000 working uranium-enriching centrifuges sent a tremor across the world yesterday amid fears that Israel would respond by bombing the country’s nuclear facilities.

Military sources in Washington said that the existence of such a large number could be a “tipping point”, triggering an Israeli air strike. The Pentagon is reluctant to take military action against Iran, but officials say that Israel is a “different matter”. Amid the international uproar, British MPs who were to have toured the nuclear facility were backing out of their Iran trip.

Even before President Ahmadinejad’s announcement, a US defence official told The Times yesterday: “Israel could do something when they get to around 3,000 working centrifuges. The Pentagon is minded to wait a little longer.” US experts say 3,000 machines running for long periods could make enough enriched uranium for an atomic bomb within a year.

What’s most amazing about this fiasco is the UN’s flip-flopping of the issue. First the UN says Iran is violating the treaty, then they aren’t … etc. It’s like the oil-for-food scandal all over again.

Bush, S. Korean President Clash Over Ending Korean War

Posted by Casey on September 7, 2007


Many of you out there are no doubt confused. The Korean War ended decades ago, right? Wrong! The war has never ended … kind of like our war with Iraq never ended in the 90’s.

You still get combat pay when you are deployed to Korea because it is a war zone.

The S. Korean president wanted Bush to formally end the war with N. Korea, but Bush refused.

Breitbart:

Bush said that during his talks with Roh, he reaffirmed the U.S. position that Washington will consider the war formally over only when North Korean leader Kim Jong Il actually dismantles his nuclear program.

Whatever Roh heard Bush say through his translator, it wasn’t good enough.

“I think I did not hear President Bush mention the—a declaration to end the Korean War just now,” Roh said as cameras clicked and television cameras rolled.

Bush said he thought he was being clear, but obliged Roh and restated the U.S. position.

That wasn’t good enough either. “If you could be a little bit clearer in your message,” Roh said.

Bush, now looking irritated, replied: “I can’t make it any more clear, Mr. President. We look forward to the day when we can end the Korean War. That will end—will happen when Kim verifiably gets rid of his weapons programs and his weapons.”

The White House immediately downplayed the testy exchange and said the meeting went smoothly.

“There was clearly something lost in translation,” National Security Council spokesman Gordon Johndroe said in a rushed e-mail to reporters.

“I really think the interpreter must not have conveyed the president’s comments entirely clearly,” Johndroe said. “The president made clear in his opening remarks that he told Roh that the U.S. is committed to a peace agreement once North Korea complies.”

One of the more interesting aspects of this whole exchange is that the US can’t end the war. We didn’t declare war against the North, and the US was not the only combatant.

And despite Roh’s challenge for Bush to make a declaration to end the war, the war was not between the United States and the North but between the North and the United Nations, and Bush alone could not end the war with a simple declaration. “As we say, `all parties involved,’ ” Johndroe said, when asked about the mechanics of achieving a peace treaty.

In June 1950, the U.N. Security Council, acting on a resolution advanced by the United States, adopted a resolution calling on its member states to help South Korea repel an invasion by the North.

So, even if the US ‘considers’ the war over … it will not be over until the UN acts.

Nevertheless, I smell a poll coming on. You can take it on the top right of this website.

Should the UN declare the Korean War over?

UN Will Finally Send Peacekeepers To Darfur

Posted by Casey on July 31, 2007

It sure did take a long time to finally do the right thing. Unfortunately, the peacekeepers are likely not going to accomplish much if they meet resistance. The have a history of abandoning their mission when things get tough. I do wish them all the best, and hopefully they can be successful.

Fox News:

The U.N. Security Council approved a 26,000-strong peacekeeping force for Darfur on Tuesday to try to help end four years of fighting that has killed more than 200,000 people in the conflict-wracked Sudanese region.

The force — the first joint peacekeeping mission by the African Union and the United Nations — will replace the beleaguered 7,000-strong AU force now on the ground in Darfur no later than Dec. 31. The council urged that the AU-U.N. “hybrid” force achieve “full operational capability and force strength as soon as possible thereafter.”

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called it a “historic and unprecedented resolution” that will send “a clear and powerful signal” of the U.N.’s commitment to help to the people of Darfur and the surrounding region “and close this tragic chapter in Sudan’s history.”

Let’s hope this will not be a revisit of Rwanda.

21 Cease-Fire Violations

Posted by Casey on July 20, 2007

NOTICE:

The following post is from a column I wrote for another site before I had my blog. It is from Sept. 2006, and it chronicled the various cease-fire violations of UN resolution 1701. That is the resolution that ended the conflict between Israel and Hezbollah.

There have been far more than 21 violations of this resolution since then. Most of those violations were committed by Hezbollah, and the UN … not Israel. Yes, the UN has continued to violate its own resolution. This is nothing new in the history of the UN … don’t act so surprised.

Sept. 1, 2006

UN Security Council Resolution 1701 is a pretty simple document that established a cease-fire between Hezbollah and Israel to hopefully end the recent conflict. Most of us knew the cease-fire wouldn’t hold, and many of us pressed for Israel to just finish it already. Unfortunately international pressure, and a far too optimistic military doctrine, saw Israel accept yet another UN resolution directly linked to the safety of that country. If 1701 fails like the Taif Agreement and UN resolution 1559 has failed for all of these years, there will be more war.

Many of us expected there to be a violation, or two, of the new cease-fire resolution. We also expected that at some point Israel would respond to violations, and thus be blamed themselves for those violations. Well, violating 1701 didn’t take very long, and we were proven correct that Israel would get the blame.

Here’s what the AP had to say:

U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan said Saturday that an early-morning Israeli raid against Hezbollah in eastern Lebanon violated the 6-day-old cease-fire brokered by the United Nations. An Israeli officer was killed, and two soldiers wounded, when Israeli commandos raided a Hezbollah stronghold deep in Lebanon.

It only took six days for Israel to violate the cease-fire, and draw Kofi Annan out to criticize their conduct. That’s almost a record. The problem here is that this wasn’t the first violation of 1701 it’s the nineteenth! This is, however, the first violation by Israel. Since this was the nineteenth violation in six days, and the first by Israel, where’s Kofi ‘hell no’ Annan been? Since this event there has been another violation of 1701, and there will no doubt be more. So what exactly does 1701 say, and what are the other violations I’m writing about?

I won’t bore you with the full text of UN resolution 1701, but you can confirm the excerpts I use from it on the UN’s own website. The opening paragraphs of the resolution recalls all previous resolutions on Lebanon, squarely puts the blame on Hezbollah, says there will be no weapons in Lebanon without the consent of the Lebanese government, no authority other than the Lebanese government, calls for a larger UNIFIL force, the unconditional release of the abducted Israeli soldiers, and other things as well. Even though the UN recalled all previous resolutions on Lebanon, it calls for 1701 to implement what those resolutions failed to.

Violation 1 & 2:
By STEVEN R. HURST – Aug 14
The truce that took effect at 8 a.m. (1 a.m. EDT) largely held through its first day, although six Hezbollah fighters were killed in skirmishes between Israeli forces and Hezbollah that illustrated the fragility of the cease-fire.

I’ve actually given a pass to Hezbollah here. In two separate skirmishes, Hezbollah moved aggressively towards Israeli positions sparking a firefight. There is a long history of battles and skirmishes happening right after an end to hostilities. Nevertheless, a violation is a violation, and Hezbollah racked up two here. The first provision of 1701 is pretty clear.

1. Calls for a full cessation of hostilities based upon, in particular, the immediate cessation by Hizbollah of all attacks and the immediate cessation by Israel of all offensive military operations;

Hezbollah launched two attacks, and Israel’s response was defensive not offensive. Hezbollah 2, Israel 0.

Violation 3-6:
Daniel McGrory – Aug 15
It was supposed to be the day the maligned Lebanese army took control of the country’s borders and policed the UN ceasefire.
Instead, the military commanders were left humiliated and troops stranded as Hezbollah told them not to disarm its fighters.
The first infantry units were preparing to head south when Hezbollah showed who controls the area by announcing it would not surrender its weapons.

General Michel Sleiman, commander-in-chief of the Lebanese army, and his lieutenants had been invited to join cabinet meetings to finalise plans to deploy the 15,000-strong force south of the Litani River. But they were lectured by Hezbollah’s two ministers in the coalition Government on what the army could and could not do.

Very interesting. Remember, 1701 says that NO arms are allowed without consent of the Lebanese government. There is actually several violations here. Some of the provisions of 1701 that prove these are, in fact, violations of the cease-fire are as follows:

2. Upon full cessation of hostilities, calls upon the Government of Lebanon and UNIFIL as authorized by paragraph 11 to deploy their forces together throughout the South. (Hezbollah didn’t allow Lebanon to deploy 1 violation)

3. Emphasizes the importance of the extension of the control of the Government of Lebanon over all Lebanese territory in accordance with the provisions of resolution 1559 (2004) and resolution 1680 (2006), and of the relevant provisions of the Taif Accords, for it to exercise its full sovereignty, so that there will be no weapons without the consent of the Government of Lebanon and no authority other than that of the Government of Lebanon; (under those resolutions, Hezbollah should not exist nor should they have weapons 2 violations)

5. Also reiterates its strong support, as recalled in all its previous relevant resolutions, for the territorial integrity, sovereignty and political independence of Lebanon within its internationally recognized borders, as contemplated by the Israeli-Lebanese General Armistice Agreement of 23 March 1949;

7. Affirms that all parties are responsible for ensuring that no action is taken contrary to paragraph 1 that might adversely affect the search for a long-term solution. (technically another violation, but we’ll count it with number 3 above)

8. Calls for Israel and Lebanon to support a permanent ceasefire and a long-term solution based on the following principles and elements: (not all listed)

— full implementation of the relevant provisions of the Taif Accords, and of resolutions 1559 (2004) and 1680 (2006), that require the disarmament of all armed groups in Lebanon, so that, pursuant to the Lebanese cabinet decision of 27 July 2006, there will be no weapons or authority in Lebanon other than that of the Lebanese State;

— no foreign forces in Lebanon without the consent of its Government; (we know that Iranian Hezbollah forces joined Lebanon’s Hezbollah force, and I doubt they’ve left 1 violation)

In case you’re new to this debate, the Taif Accords and UN resolution 1559 say that Hezbollah is not allowed to exist, and it is illegal for them to still be an organization. Hezbollah 6, Israel 0.

Violation 7:
The two kidnapped Israeli soldiers still have not been returned to Israel.

The opening paragraphs of 1701 clearly call for their return in the following excerpt:

— Emphasizing the need for an end of violence, but at the same time emphasizing the need to address urgently the causes that have given rise to the current crisis, including by the unconditional release of the abducted Israeli soldiers. Hezbollah 7, Israel 0.

Violations 8-18:
AP Aug 14
Highlighting the fragility of the peace, Hezbollah guerrillas fired at least 10 Katyusha rockets that landed in southern Lebanon early Tuesday, the Israeli army said, adding that nobody was injured. The army said that none of the rockets, which were fired over a two-hour period, had crossed the border and so it had not responded.

If you read 1701, it’s pretty clear that each rocket is a violation of the resolution and cease-fire. Remember the very first provision?

1. Calls for a full cessation of hostilities based upon, in particular, the immediate cessation by Hizbollah of all attacks and the immediate cessation by Israel of all offensive military operations;

We have ten rockets, which equals ten hostile acts, which equals ten violations of UN security council resolution 1701. Hezbollah 18, Israel 0.

Violation 19:
AP
An Israeli officer was killed, and two soldiers wounded, when Israeli commandos raided a Hezbollah stronghold deep in Lebanon, resulting in a fierce gunbattle.

Israel said the raid was launched to stop arms smuggling from Iran and Syria to the militant Shiite fighters, while Lebanon’s Prime Minister Fuad Saniora called the operation a “flagrant violation” of the U.N. truce.

This is the one that Kofi ‘hell no’ Annan chose to respond to. He openly condemned Israel for their strike, which technically IS a violation of 1701, but ignored the previous eighteen violations by Hezbollah. I’d also like to point out that Kofi accused Israel of deliberately attacking a UNIFIL base, but said nothing when Hezbollah attacked a UNIFIL base. Since 1701 calls for Israel to stop all offensive operations we have to give them one point whether we support them or not, just to be fair. Hezbollah 18, Israel 1.

Violation 20:
Fox News (AP contributing) Aug 25
“It is generally accepted that the disarmament of Hezbollah cannot be done by force,” Annan told reporters. “The troops are not going there to disarm Hezbollah, let’s be clear on that.”

Wait a minute! UN security council resolution 1701 calls for the implementation of the Taif Accords, 1559, and 1680 under the new resolution. UNIFIL has been in southern Lebanon since 1978. Their mission is defined as, and confirmed on the UN’s website as follows:

The United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon, or UNIFIL, was created by the United Nations, with the adoption of Security Council Resolution 425 and 426 on 19 March 1978, to confirm Israeli withdrawal from Lebanon, restore the international peace and security, and help the Lebanese Government restore its effective authority in the area.

Defenddemocracy.org writes:

During the 28 years that UNIFIL was supposed to be restoring sovereignty to the government of Lebanon, Hezbollah was created, set up an autonomous statelet in southern Lebanon, acquired tens of thousands of rockets and missiles, and launched numerous terrorist assaults against Israel.

Even though Israel complied with its obligation to leave southern Lebanon, UNIFIL failed to bring about the remainder of its mandate. As a result, Hezbollah filled the void in southern Lebanon left by the absence of Israeli troops.

Why won’t the UN implement its own resolutions? How is the UN going to help Lebanon restore its effective authority in the area if they won’t disarm Hezbollah according to their own mandate? What possible effect could the new beefed up UNIFIL force have if they are not willing to disarm Hezbollah? When Hezbollah violates the cease-fire again, in yet another attempt to get Samir Kuntar back, will UNIFIL engage them? If Hezbollah and Lebanese forces get into a confrontation, will UNIFIL assist Lebanon? Perhaps they’ll assist Hezbollah instead.

Lori Lowenthal Marcus – Weekly Standard

DURING THE RECENT month-long war between Hezbollah and Israel, U.N. “peacekeeping” forces made a startling contribution: They openly published daily real-time intelligence, of obvious usefulness to Hezbollah, on the location, equipment, and force structure of Israeli troops in Lebanon.

UNIFIL–the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon, a nearly 2,000-man blue-helmet contingent that has been present on the Lebanon-Israel border since 1978–is officially neutral. Yet, throughout the recent war, it posted on its website for all to see precise information about the movements of Israeli Defense Forces soldiers and the nature of their weaponry and materiel, even specifying the placement of IDF safety structures within hours of their construction. New information was sometimes only 30 minutes old when it was posted, and never more than 24 hours old.

Meanwhile, UNIFIL posted not a single item of specific intelligence regarding Hezbollah forces.

Is anyone really surprised? UNIFIL was created to prevent groups in southern Lebanon from launching terrorist attacks on Israel, and to make sure all Israeli forces pulled out. They only accomplished one of their mandates while allowing another to go unchecked. As a result, we have several years of attacks on Israel by Hezbollah. This last incident is just the latest in a long history of offensives by Hezbollah to kidnap Israelis in order to seek a prisoner exchange.

1701 also states:

11. Decides, in order to supplement and enhance the force in numbers, equipment, mandate and scope of operations, to authorize an increase in the force strength of UNIFIL to a maximum of 15,000 troops, and that the force shall, in addition to carrying out its mandate under resolutions 425 and 426 (1978):

(a) Monitor the cessation of hostilities;

(b) Accompany and support the Lebanese armed forces as they deploy throughout the South, including along the Blue Line, as Israel withdraws its armed forces from Lebanon as provided in paragraph 2;

(e) Assist the Lebanese armed forces in taking steps towards the establishment of the area as referred to in paragraph 8;

(f) Assist the Government of Lebanon, at its request, to implement paragraph 14;

12. Acting in support of a request from the Government of Lebanon to deploy an international force to assist it to exercise its authority throughout the territory, authorizes UNIFIL to take all necessary action in areas of deployment of its forces and as it deems within its capabilities, to ensure that its area of operations is not utilized for hostile activities of any kind, to resist attempts by forceful means to prevent it from discharging its duties under the mandate of the Security Council, and to protect United Nations personnel, facilities, installations and equipment, ensure the security and freedom of movement of United Nations personnel, humanitarian workers and, without prejudice to the responsibility of the Government of Lebanon, to protect civilians under imminent threat of physical violence;

13. Requests the Secretary-General urgently to put in place measures to ensure UNIFIL is able to carry out the functions envisaged in this resolution. New score: Hezbollah 18, Israel 1, United Nations 1.

Hezbollah has three demands of Israel.

– Cease to exist.
– Release all Lebanese, Palestinian, and terrorist prisoners
– Give Shebaa Farms to Lebanon.

All of these demands are unreasonable. 1701, however, does state that the Shebaa Farms issue must be addressed by Kofi Annan within thirty days with the following provision:

10. Requests the Secretary-General to develop, in liaison with relevant international actors and the concerned parties, proposals to implement the relevant provisions of the Taif Accords, and resolutions 1559 (2004) and 1680 (2006), including disarmament, and for delineation of the international borders of Lebanon, especially in those areas where the border is disputed or uncertain, including by dealing with the Shebaa Farms area, and to present to the Security Council those proposals within thirty days;

If Kofi Annan doesn’t address Shebaa Farms within thirty days the UN will have violated its own resolution more than Israel.

UPDATE:

Via Drudge

The fighting between Israel and Hezbollah began after two Israeli soldiers were captured by the Islamic militant group. On Wednesday, a Hezbollah cabinet minister said that the guerrilla group will not release the two captured Israeli soldiers unconditionally, and that they would only be freed in a prisoner exchange.

“There will be no unconditional release. This is not possible,” Minister of Energy and Hydraulic Resources Mohammed Fneish said in Beirut. He is one of two Hezbollah members in Lebanon’s Cabinet.

“There should be an exchange through indirect negotiations. This is the principle to which Hezbollah and the resistance are adhering,” he said.

Remember that after Hezbollah launched Operation Truthful Promise this July 12, and kidnapped the IDF soldiers, they called for a prisoner exchange which was officially rejected by Olmert. If they get the prisoner exchange they desired in the first place you can officially label this a victory for Hezbollah over Israel. If Israel caves, and agrees to a prisoner exchange with Hezbollah, everything they did was in vain. The deaths that resulted on all sides would be for nothing.

I’ll leave it up to you if this counts as another violation of 1701 by Hezbollah. However, since the Minister of Energy and Hydraulic Resources is a legitimate member of Lebanon’s government, I am left with one conclusion. New score: Hezbollah 18, Israel 1, United Nations 1, Lebanon 1.

UPDATE 2:

Aug 30, 2006

Haaretz Service and News Agencies

United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan said Tuesday that Israel was responsible for most of the violations of the UN-brokered cease-fire that ended the 34-day conflict between Israel and Hezbollah two weeks ago.

Really? Let’s refer back to exhibit A, shall we? The current scorecard for violations sits at: Hezbollah 18, Israel 1, United Nations 1, Lebanon 1. The defense rests.

When Israel launched its raid in Lebanon after the cease-fire they drew critisism from Kofi Annan who had remained silent in the midst of other violations.

“The Secretary-General is deeply concerned about a violation by the Israeli side of the cessation of hostilities as laid out in Security Council resolution 1701,” a statement issued by Annan’s spokesperson said.

He’s deeply concerned about A violation on ISRAEL’S side. Perhaps he should be concerned about the violations on the terrorist’s side, or better yet, his own.

Guyana Slams Kyoto Carbon Credit Scheme

Posted by Casey on July 12, 2007

Pwned! I’ve already told you that carbon credits are a scam, and have been proven to be in three investigations … including one by the UN. The US has also reduced emissions more that the Kyoto countries, and now Guyana is uber pissed.

Breitbart:

Guyana’s President Bharrat Jagdeo on Thursday criticized the Kyoto Protocol on climate change for failing to allow countries like his nation with pristine unharvested forests to earn carbon credits.

“The Kyoto Protocol is limited in that sense, and it’s short-sighted in that it encourages bad behaviour basically among countries; if you cut down trees and you plant them back you get money, if you preserve them, you don’t get anything,” Jagdeo told a forum on agro-energy.

The Guyanese leader noted that Guyana would reap “miniscule” assistance under the Clean Development Mechanism of the Kyoto Protocol when the South American country begins large-scale production of ethanol and other types of agro-based energy.

He said Guyana has decided to get into the production of bio-fuels such as ethanol and biodiesel. But “assistance is miniscule through the Clean Development Mechanism as compared to the carbon credits we could get from standing forests,” said Jagdeo, a Russian-trained economist.

So much for helping out the developing countries of the world eh.

Global Warming Caused Darfur Genocide … Part Two

Posted by Casey on June 18, 2007

This is a story that I wrote about back in March, but is being rehashed at the UN.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon appears to have fallen under the spell that all of our problems stem from global warming. What a shame … I had high hopes for this guy.

Breitbart:

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said that the slaughter in Darfur was triggered by global climate change and that more such conflicts may be on the horizon, in an article published Saturday.

“The Darfur conflict began as an ecological crisis, arising at least in part from climate change,” Ban said in a Washington Post opinion column.

UN statistics showed that rainfall declined some 40 percent over the past two decades, he said, as a rise in Indian Ocean temperatures disrupted monsoons.

“This suggests that the drying of sub-Saharan Africa derives, to some degree, from man-made global warming,” the South Korean diplomat wrote.

“It is no accident that the violence in Darfur erupted during the drought,” Ban said in the Washington daily.

When Darfur’s land was rich, he said, black farmers welcomed Arab herders and shared their water, he said.

With the drought, however, farmers fenced in their land to prevent overgrazing.

“For the first time in memory, there was no longer enough food and water for all. Fighting broke out,” he said.

Wow, talk about a lack of historical perspective. Sudan has had a major problem with Arabs fighting Africans for centuries now, and it had little to do with global warming. The first Sudanese civil war started in 1955, and lasted until 1972. It was fought between north and south Sudan. South Sudan being Christian, and north being Muslim. There were geographical and political reasons for the conflict as well, but the Muslim, Christian thing is pretty important.

The second Sudanese civil war started in 1983, but is considered by most to merely be a continuation of the first civil war. Again … it was fought between Arab, and non-Arab. Southern Sudan has been trying to get autonomy, or outright secession from the north for many years to no avail.

Just so we are clear … this conflict between the two cultural populations of Sudan has been happening since the 1700’s … LONG before global warming. Well, at least man-made global warming.

One of the reasons the conflict has been going for centuries is natural resources. The south has more oil, and fertile land (due to vastly more rainfall). The northern part of Sudan is on the edge of the Sahara Desert. A place that is not known for rainfall … even before global warming. The north wants to control these resources, and the south wants to hold onto them … hence the warfare. Unlike what Ban had to say … this conflict has been raging for centuries, and there was no “welcoming” of Arabs to use the African Sudanese’s water.

That’s right … the same reasons the northern and southern part of Sudan have been waring for centuries is exactly what caused the genocide in Darfur. The northern Arab Sudanese want the oil, water, and fertile land that the southern Sudanese people have always had. There is no new variable such as man-made global warming that has contributed to this conflict. The conflict between these two regions predates the nation of Sudan itself, and it predates the Industrial Revolution.

BONUS:

Looks like the BBC has been biased in their global warming coverage. Don’t take my word for it … take theirs.

Now That Carbon Credits Have Been Shown To Be A Fraud … Are People Still Dumb Enough To Fall For The Scam?

Posted by Casey on June 3, 2007

The answer is a resounding yes.

Remember how I told you carbon and methane credits were “The Ultimate Scam” before anyone was seriously looking at it? Since then every blog and talk show host has begun providing the evidence of the carbon credit scam. There has even been an investigation that concluded the companies involved in this lie were, in fact, scam artists. Now there is another investigation by the UN that shows further fraud by carbon credit companies.

The Guardian:

The Clean Development Mechanism (CDM), which is supposed to offset greenhouse gases emitted in the developed world by selling carbon credits from elsewhere, has been contaminated by gross incompetence, rule-breaking and possible fraud by companies in the developing world, according to UN paperwork, an unpublished expert report and alarming feedback from projects on the ground.

So once again I present to you a harty “see, I told you so.”

Not only have I told you repeatedly about the scam of carbon credits, but I’ve told you that governments were a part of the fraud, and that the outcome would be more greenhouse gas emissions … not less. Turns out I’m a psychic!

Since these are used by European governments and corporations to justify increases in emissions, the effect is that in some cases malpractice at the CDM has added to the net amount of greenhouse gas in the atmosphere.

There is tons more evidence of fraud in the article.

I wonder what companies who push carbon credits while contributing to increased greenhouse emissions (like Ben & Jerry’s) will say about the second full fledged investigation showing fraud. Hell, even Al Gore himself said being carbon neutral is a fraud.

If nothing else, the “credit” business has allowed free thinking entrepreneurs to come up with a “credit” for everything, and make a legitimate business venture out of the idea.
