Global Warming Today: Nothing Is More Important, Damnit!

The United Nations General Secretary has now gone insane

Global warming is the most important issue facing mankind, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon said Friday in an interview with Yoichi Funabashi, editor in chief of the vernacular Asahi Shimbun.

Ban said the United Nations’ September forum on global warming will be crucial to advancing moves to deal with the problem.

"This high-level meeting on climate change will be one of the most important United Nations initiatives in the history of the United Nations," Ban said. "I would like to use this high-level dialogue as a forum where we can consolidate and generate firm political will among the international community."

The meeting will build momentum toward the December meeting in Indonesia of signatory nations to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

Gee, if man made global warming is so bad, why are all those people going to be flying to Indonesia? Why can’t they teleconference, which would be a significant decrease in releasing greenhouse gasses? It will be interesting to see exactly where they meet. My money is on a luxury resort area.

Of course, the climahysterics are ratcheting up their, well, hysteria

No one wants to accept responsibility for the first genocide of the 21st century: the tragedy that is occurring in Darfur, in Sudan. The Sudanese government won’t accept responsibility for the crisis occurring within its borders, while the United Nations won’t accept blame for the role they’ve played in allowing hundreds of thousands to die. Now it seems a new culprit has entered the debate on the true source of the conflict, and the blame is now being shifted to… global warming. (snip)

The conflicts occurring in nations such as Afghanistan, Nepal and Sudan have been aggravated by a lack of resources. This scarcity is fueled by droughts and floods. And what is causing these extreme weather situations? You guessed it, global warming.

Interesting, if true. Of course, let’s not forget that the Little Ice Age brought about, scientist think, the Black Death.

While resources can certainly agravate a situation, what if we do something that turns the climate in the opposite direction, and the areas where we grow food must move south as the cold sets in? In colder periods, water, particularly fresh water, tends to be locked up in ice, decreasing the available amounts. So, you see, there is always a way to blame the environment. Perhaps people should look to the real causes, such as, man is a rather war like being, and Muslims are the ones causing the geonocide in Darfur.

In other funny climahysteria, the chief minister of a pissant little area of India says the US is mostly responsible for global warming. India!

I wonder if the idiots who are trying to shut down air travel, starting with Heathrow, will decry folks like The Goracle, or the UN folks, for flying all around the world?

Finally, OOPS! there is quite a bit of disagreement on the subject of global warming as caused by Man. Sorry, Goracle followers. However, since none of you have changed your actual lifestyles, just told everyone else to change theirs, this should be no big deal.

Well I am not sure how much less of a carbon footprint would occur if all of those planes flew off to Indonesia with one less seat filled. I do suppose it is somewhat less but subtracting say 250 pounds from the take off weight of 750,000 pounds doesn’t really make that big of a difference in the amount of fuel burnt.
Your reasoning about Darfur seems flawed. What has changed more in say the last 20 years the nature of man or the micro climate of Darfur ?
Climate is changing. What has been the norm is changing. 6 of the 10 largest hurricanes have occured in the last 10 years. Natural disasters may increase migration of people.

here is a link to the biggest storms. They sure seem to have occured in a pretty small time periodhttp://www.thedailygreen.com/2007/08/21/hurricane-dean-1-of-10-most-intense-atlantic-hurricanes-ever/5533/

No, you’ve got that backwards. The Black Death was a bacterial disease spread by rat fleas. It’s been speculated that the decrease in agricultural output caused by the depopulation of Europe during the Black Death lead to reforestation, which then lead to more absorption of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere – which may have prolonged the Little Ice Age.
