Tomorrow we’ll dive back into the rapids and face the increasingly crazed wingnut masses once again, but tonight it’s time for something beautiful.
Dominionist Senator and hardcore climate change denier James Inhofe went to the Copenhagen climate summit to subvert the Obama administration’s policies, but nobody was interested.
COPENHAGEN — Sen. Jim Inhofe flew across the Atlantic and — on little sleep — braved the snow, the cold and the dark to deliver his skeptical message at the international climate conference.
What he found when he got here: a few aides and a single reporter. “I think he’s going to be a little disappointed,” one of his aides remarked. …
But Inhofe’s aides eventually rustled up a group of reporters, and the Oklahoman — wearing black snakeskin cowboy boots — held forth from the top of a flight of stairs in the conference media center. …
A reporter asked: “If there’s a hoax, then who’s putting on this hoax, and what’s the motive?”
“It started in the United Nations,” Inhofe said, “and the ones in the United States who really grab ahold of this is the Hollywood elite.”
One reporter asked Inhofe if he was referring to California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. Another reporter — this one from Der Spiegel — told the senator: “You’re ridiculous.”
It was beginning to look like Copenhagen would be a wash, but news is now coming in that a tentative deal has been reached.
Reporting from Copenhagen - Key international leaders have reached a tentative deal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and curb climate change, the Los Angeles Times has learned, after the United States and China agreed to a method for recording developing nations’ pledges to limit emissions and ensuring those pledges are carried out.
Details of the agreement were approved in an evening meeting with President Obama, Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao, Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, sources said.
Obama has scheduled a press conference in the host Bella Center to unveil the agreement.
A senior administration official said following the meeting that the parties had reached a “meaningful agreement.”
“It’s not sufficient to combat the threat of climate change but its an important first step,” the official said.
If the Guardian is upset with President Obama’s speech in Copenhagen, he must have done something right: Barack Obama’s speech disappoints and fuels frustration at Copenhagen.
The “frustration” they feel comes from the fact that Obama didn’t cave in, didn’t give away the store, refused to compromise US sovereignty, and is sticking to his guns about other nations doing their part to stop climate change.
In other words, the Guardian is frustrated and angry because Obama is the President of the United States, not President of the World.Youtube Video
The leader of the neo-Nazi British National Party is a climate change “skeptic.”
The leader of the British National Party and MEP is at the international summit as a representative of the European Parliament.
But he said global warming was a “hoax” designed to impose tax increases on the citizens of the world through putting up the price of energy. He said world leaders and advocates of action on climate change such as Al Gore are “mass murderers” by supporting biofuels.
He said land for growing food is being taken to grow fuels for crops and it will cause starvation greater than the famines caused by Russian dictator Stalin during the 1930s and Chairman Mao in the 1950s.
“It is a crime against humanity which in future will be seen as an enormous man-made famine. Under Stalin 20 million people died, under Chairman Mao 30 million died. This will be the third and the greatest famine of the modern era and I regard that as a crime.”
Fascists and Islamic supremacists agree — global warming is a hoax.
