Cut the Costly Climate Chatter


Twenty-two years ago a bunch of green activists calling themselves “The Earth Summit” met in Rio and invented a way to tour the world at tax-payers’ expense – never-ending conferences on environmental alarms.

Like any good bureaucratic committee, they soon established sub-committees on sustainability, pollution, development, energy, forestry, water, biodiversity, endangered species, poverty, health, population and Agenda 21 (this item alone had 40 chapters each with its own sub-committee). Environmental conferences became the greatest multi-national growth industry in the world financed mainly by tax payers via participating public servants, climate academics, employees of nationalised industries and tax-sheltered green “charities” such as Greenpeace and WWF.

They really hit the Mother Lode with their creation called “Global Warming”, and its proxies “Climate Change” and “Extreme Weather”.

These “noble causes” generated a hierarchy of steering committees, reference committees, political committees, science sub-groups, working committees, reviewers and peak bodies and could muster meetings with 20,000 attendees from 178 countries at hardship locations such as Rio, Berlin, Geneva, Kyoto, Buenos Aires, Bonn, The Hague, Marrakesh, New Delhi, Milan, Montreal, Nairobi, Bali, Poznan, Copenhagen, Cancun, Durban, Qatar, Doha, Warsaw, Stockholm, Lima, Abu Dhabi and New York. 

The 21st Climate Change birthday party will be held at the Conference of the Parties in Paris in December 2015, while the Small Islands Developing States will tour to Samoa, but any important decisions will be taken behind closed doors by the canny BRICS Nations (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa).

The Climate Conference Circuit became a bigger boost to airlines, hotels and fine dining than the Olympic Games and G20. Australia alone sent the PM plus a team of 114 to the failed Copenhagen Conference. Rich and poor all over the world have endured 21 years of wasteful spending that could have built flood-proof infrastructure, drought-proof water supplies, erosion-proof beach fronts and pollution-free waterways. It has gone down the global warming gurgler without a single visible benefit for suffering tax-payers.

With most western governments running desperate financial deficits, it is time to cut the costs of this climate chatter. Australia should burn no more jet fuel sending people to any climate conference anywhere. If they want one, they should use bicycles, tele-conferencing or the postal service.

Viv, here's a couple of links that need investigation and wider reportage... http://jennifermarohasy.com/2014/08/whos-going-to-be-sacked-for-making-up-global-warming-at-rutherglen/ and http://jennifermarohasy.com/2014/08/the-abc-of-rutherglen/ I hope you follow them through!

Australian Bureau of Meteorology caught fiddlilng the record by Jennifer Marohasy.Heat is on over weather bureau ‘homogenising temperature records’ http://jennifermarohasy.com/2014/08/heat-is-on-over-weather-bureau-homogenising-temperature-records/

What about that waste of space FlimFlam going on today about changing the RET down to near 0 , I will tell you tell you TIM it be saving us the taxpayers a truck load of money .
Unlike the Billions wasted on Water Treatment plants , Sydney , Melbourne and Gold Coast - because we were supposedly running out of water and the dams will never fill again ... HOW the F##k do we hold these pricks accountable ,
Flannery , Rudd , Gillard , Swan , Garrett the list goes on and on ...$$$$$$'s gone

All we can do is let this nonsense run its course and run out of propaganda to fool people. That is happening. They have had to bring in "climate change" when "global warming" looks hysterical. I suspect the inventors used this hypothesis, courtesy of the maniac Dr Goebbels: “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

THE Bureau of Meteorology has been accused of manipulating historic temperature records to fit a predetermined view of global warming. In a dispute with BOM that can be traced to the Brisbane floods in January 2011, researcher Jennifer Marohasy has claimed the adjusted temperature records resemble “propaganda” rather than science.

Krudd believed he was a Leader of Men but he was delusional as the majority of us were well aware. He was a total failure at Copenhagen and an absolute waste of taxpayer funds.

I watched a James Bond Movie recently. It was the one about the media baron wanting to rule the world. Reminded me of K Rudd. Totally self centred and a psychopath.

We should be sad that these idiots ever got a hearing of their unscientific drivel.

I remember a map showing all the private jets converging on one of those "global warming" conferences a few years ago. It these people really believed in this stuff, wouldn't they teleconference?

The Latte sipping inner city trendoid Tree Higging do gooder types!! Who will gladly sell out yours and mine National and economic soverienty for a ficticious threat, to give themselves a warm inner glow! While they look down their snobby superior noses at us mere mortals who work for a living and pay our taxes, go to the wars, and work ourselves to a standstill to keep thus country productive and economically beneficial. We all know Viv Green House effect, Climate Change, Global Warming et al, what ever todays new trendy term is, is a massive con, hoax! Try and convince those so called intellectual superior wankers the truth! That is the challenge! I want to know how does a tool like Flannery still show his face around town, when he has been proved so very wrong!

Very true . But now the people have been brain-washed to believe it's true and the bullshit will never stop and we will have to continue to pay . It reminds me of the old children's story about the "Kings New Clothes" . No one wanted to put his hand up and say the King had been conned by the shonky Tailor and had no clothes on . So everyone said nothing and they all got conned .

I have no problem with taking care of the environment and if there was man made global warming and we could change it I would not have a problem. However as soon as they became aware there had not been any global warming for sometime the IPCC called it climate change. Now the latest is glaciers forming on Scotland's highest mountain. This without mentioning increased polar ice. This is nothing more than as Viv has suggested, an exclusive club of jet setters, who have individually done more to pump CO2 into atmosphere than 99.99% of the rest if the western world. They are hypocrites!

Yes the Kevin Rudd set. The arrogant sense of privileged entitlement and self importance. History's wannabe heroes. Modern day wannabe Noah's. Fabricators of fictional data justified for the cause. Deniers of climate reality . Reverse robin hooders, take from the battlers and give to the undeserving, fraudsters, bullshitters, thieves . Arseholes . Delusional scum, parasites. Hypocrites . What more can I say. Words fail me except vanquish the whole lot and give everybody a much needed tax cut.

Well bloody said.......and that is the truth....the whole truth and nothing but the truth.....
However you will never hear any of these "Climate wankers" come out with the statement......"Gee!! Maybe the problem is that we are over populating the planet"

Its like any socialist government...look like we are creating employment by employing thousands of public servants that we do not really need at the taxpayers expense..

I fully agree Viv.

Want a good laugh? Tim Flannery says his biggest fear is the disruption of global civilisation. Take a captain cook at this: http://www.news.com.au/technology/science/scientists-reveal-how-they-feel-about-climate-change-in-handwritten-letters-and-photos/story-fn5fsgyc-1227038781108

Congratulations on this, Viv. You've written many terrific articles and I thank you for the voice of sanity.
