Denmark Trades Dalai Lama for Climate Treaty

Dalai Lama

Ends Inconvenient Friendship With Tibet

By Einar Du Rietz, Copenhagen

Maybe these guys are serious about the Copenhagen treaty after all. Wednesday evening it became clear that Denmark has reversed its policy on China and Tibet by abruptly recognizing Chinese sovereignty over Tibet. Denmark promised to act with “caution” in future contacts with the Dalai Lama, the exiled leader of Tibet. This is clearly an effort to bribe the Chinese into some sort of climate treaty. According to China’s People’s Daily, a diplomatic note agrees that “Denmark recognizes China’s sovereignty over Tibet and accordingly opposes the independence of Tibet.”

The Danish going solo has been irritating to other European countries. After all, they don’t hold the EU Presidency. Chances are however that the Danish population won’t be too happy either. The Lama has met with Danish Prime Ministers and government officials repeatedly over a long time, most recently he met with Prime Minister Rasmussen in May 2009.

Though business has worried about the small trade war with China that ensued after the meetings, the timing can hardly mean anything other than that Rasmussen kicked his official friend in the teeth to save his own face during the ongoing Copenhagen Climate Chaos.

The UN was founded to safeguard nations and human rights against aggression. It is casting aside its first principles. As Denmark and the UN abandon Tibet to advance a treaty that is all pain no gain, we wonder, have democracies and a world organization ever abandoned a peaceful world leader before?

    So now the Saviours of Humanity have thrown human rights under the bus in their zeal to combat a mass hallucination called “global warming”.

    I thought the whole idea of fighting global warming was to prevent human mysery.

    The United Nations has outlived it’s usefulness. I believe the United States, if not the entire world, would be much better off without this highly corrupt organization.

      Unfortunately the USA is every bit as corrupt and in fact enabling the UN. res ispa loquitor

    Is it any wonder that people who are prepared to support thefraundulent alteration of data to justify a political cause that such people would sell other peoples’ souls for their policy. What spineless little people they are at Copenhagen.

    Red in the middle and green on the outside. Socialists only care about themselves and will always sell out others for their own power grabs. Just look under Obama’s bus to see this.

    Farewell Fairweather Friends.

    Who can trust such sentimental leadership that champions the poor & oppressed while it’s trendy & fashionable but not through the slightest inconvenience to itself.

    What a dirtbag Rasmussen has proven to be. The lack of character and integrity is breathtaking. Rasmussen is one guy you would never depend on when the chips are down or your back is against the wall.

    Before you sell out your friends, perhaps you should check the science:

    Update on non-warming in Copenhagen: As emergency AGW conference continues, it is perhaps ironic to calmly study some weather information readily available on the internet. I apologize that the figures are not absolutely precise because they are taken from graphs at weatheronline.co.uk. Anyone can check my calculations, which took about 20 minutes and were not taxpayer funded.

    In the last 28 years (as far as the online records go back), the highest December temperature in Copenhagen was 11 degrees C and that was back in 1983. Over these years, the average highest December temperature was around 7 C.

    First day: a high of 7 C, exactly the same as the average high of the last 28 years and 4 degrees COOLER than the high of the last 28 years.

    Second day: a high of 7 C, the same.

    Third day: a high of 6 C, 5 degrees COOLER than the December high of the last 28 years.

    Fourth day: a high of 6 C

    Fifth day: a high of 5 C, 6 degrees COOLER than the December high of the last 28 years.

    Can someone please point this out to the Met, the BBC and all the eminent and learned delegates?

      OooH Errr Brrrr

      and it will get Colder and Blizzardy

      http://news.bbc.co.uk/weather/forecast/35

      Wait a minute this is data from the “Met Office”

      They were saying last week that it would be balmy
      and sunny, were’nt they ? Piers Corbyn said they
      were wrong, and that it would be a blizzard for the
      Obaminoid visit on wednesday. Who was correct then ?

      The astro-forcaster Corbyn, or the CRU conspirators
      at the Met Office with their “deep black”. I heard
      that because of budget cuts, they can’t afford to
      turn the giant playstation on, so they just make the
      figures up and hope nobody will notice.

      Has anyone got a copy of the Met Office electric bill,
      it would be interesting to see their power consumption.

    In January 2009 …
    Alan Dickinson,
    Met Office Director of Science and Technology,
    said, “Our next supercomputer will bring an acceleration in action on climate change through climate mitigation and adaptation measures as a consequence of a clearer understanding of risk. Ultimately this will lead to a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.”

    but there was this footnote on that statement …

    “When it is finally completed, around 2011 the Met Office machine will be the second most powerful machine in Britain with a total peak performance approaching 1 PetaFlop”

    2011 !!!!

    So it isn’t actually working yet at all !

    Yet a few days ago the Julia Slingo, the Met Office’s chief scientist, was pictured posing in front of “deep black”,
    (the Supercomputer) insisting that no one was pressured
    to sign its petition of 1700 “zombie” scientists.

    Utter Hogwash !!!
