Update Tell me: are we getting sick of discussing this topic, or what? It seems that, as is sane and rational, most of us would rather move on to something else. But the Green Horde moves ever forward. Its main tactic (used by all on the Left) is to wear you down. It works.
Today’s post is at The Stream: Climate Circus, Climate Clowns at #COP21. It was inevitable that this would turn into a circus. There is no science at COP21, just fantasy.
It’s clear that the Paris global warming—excuse, me: climate change—conference is a circus in the best tradition of circuses. There are parades, concessions, a Big Top, even boat shows, and a general spirit of fun.
And, of course, every circus has its clowns. Clowns lift our spirits and make us laugh. They are silly and antic. They say preposterous things. They keep the show going when attention begins the flag. Let’s hear it for the clowns! Clowns like this:
Bernie “The Government Should Control Everything” Sanders, erstwhile presidential candidate, slapped on the paint and did his level best to make the world giggle by revealing his Master Plan to “bring climate deniers to justice.” I agree, Bern, old son; we should be brought to justice—and be rewarded for our prescience, perspicacity, and perseverance in the face of nonsense like calls to “Stop climate change!” A more pseudo-scientific statement you’d be hard pressed to discover. Saying that you can stop the climate from changing is like saying you can stop socialists from spending other people’s money.
Dictator and brutalist Robert Mugabe, an accomplished thief with impressive credentials in fingering “aid” money shipped to Zimbabwe, went the traditional route and painted exaggerated white tears on his cheeks. Mugabe leads the African Bloc and has accused the West of being “miserly” with its promised largess of $100 billion per year. He wants that money to “eradicate poverty”. It surely would. It’s a sure thing, Bobby, that if you got that money, you won’t be going broke.
Go there to read the rest. If you can stomach it.
