100 scientists oppose UN climate conference
BALI, Indonesia - The UN climate conference met strong opposition Thursday from a team of over 100 prominent international scientists, who warned the UN that attempting to control the Earth's climate was "ultimately futile."
The scientists, many of whom are current and former UN IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) scientists, sent an open letter to the UN Secretary-General questioning the scientific basis for climate fears and the UN's so-called "solutions."
"Attempts to prevent global climate change from occurring are ultimately futile, and constitute a tragic misallocation of resources that would be better spent on humanity's real and pressing problems," the letter signed by the scientists read. The December 13 letter was released to the public late Thursday.
The scientists come from all over the world, including Britain, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, Poland, the United States, and the Netherlands.
A carbon tax that redistributes wealth has been proposed by global bureaucrats at the Bali Conference. Those of us who are not bureaucrats would pay the taxes. The bureaucrats would pay themselves to distribute the money. Sounds sweet, doesn't it?
Curiously, those who insist that mankind is causing global warming say nothing about the contribution made by the environmental impact of a meat-based diet, which requires vast acres of cleared land and enormous amounts of petroleum for fertilizer and transport while producing tremendous amounts of methane. As Glenn Reynolds says, when the people who say this is a crisis start acting as if it is a human-caused crisis - no private jets, no jetting anywhere, no meat for dinner - it may look more believable to us.
