Zimbabwe was recently elected to lead the UN's Commission on Sustainable Economic Development which is the UN's main environment body. Now this a country that has destroyed a once-thriving farming industry, has a failing economy, an appalling human rights record and a poor record of looking after its wildlife and national parks. And yet as pathetic as it sounds, the UN managed to elect Zimbabwe to fill this postion. It just shows how corrupt, idiotic and irrelavent the UN has become. Over the past few decades the UN has done absolutely nothing and I mean nothing
, to increase the world's knowledge base, nothing to increase the scientific understanding of anything and was definitely most positivley not responsible for keeping what passes as world peace these days (the US alliance system did that).
I suppose what I'm trying to say is that the UN lacks creibility in almost everything it does. They've stuffed up that many things that many times, they really can't be trusted to get anything right anytime at all.
So the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (the IPCC) comes along and put's out a report suggesting that the world as we know it is about end and they want me to believe it ? 1,500 eminent scientists ?
off! About the only way that that report could be used constructively, would be to hang it from a hook in some isolated country shithouse. As one of the presenters in the doco noted, it's all about politics and not much else.
What the panel of UN scientists didn't tell you and what the climate change industry definitely won't, is that for the bulk of the Earths history, on average the planets temperature has been warmer than it is now. In fact it is unusual to find ice sheets at both poles at the same time as we now have. It could be said and has been by some, that the planet at the moment is experiencing a mini ice age.
So will there be climate change ? Of course. The climate is constantly changing and has done so throughout the Earths history and it will continue to do so. Will the planet warm up ? It more than likely will because historically it has always been warmer than it is now.
Is this because of human activity ? Well that's something that remains to be seen. If you compare human activity over the last 200 years to the climate change mechanism that acts over many millenia, it might change things by a few fractions of one percent.
I certainly, absolutely believe in climate change. But those who are bleating from their roof tops that suggest if you're after a beach front property in the near future you should be looking at places in Dubbo, Bright or perhaps Katoomba, should take a cold shower.
Only a 1 minute shower mind you.There's no water left due to the severe drought triggered by that nasty climate change.
