CFACT rallies 50,000+ Poles against climate treaty

  • CFACT President David Rothbard rallies over 50,000 Polies against the UN treaty

As more than 50,000 enthusiastic Poles gathered in downtown Warsaw on Monday to celebrate National Independence Day, with millions more watching on live television, CFACT president David Rothbard was invited to the stage to deliver an impassioned address celebrating freedom and warning against the dangerous and oppressive climate agenda of the UN.

Before what was one of the largest audienWarsaw climate rally crowdces to ever hear a speech denouncing UN global warming policies, Rothbard said he was honored to stand with the Poles in a “new battle for freedom against those who would use environmental and climate alarmism to steal away our liberties and give international bureaucrats control over our energy sources, our daily lives, our prosperity, and our national sovereignty.”

The address was carried live on national television and covered by a large number of international media outlets. It took place just as the UN was kicking off its COP19 climate conference a few kilometers away.

Rothbard noted that at last year’s COP meeting, UN climate chief Christiana Figueres said that what the UN was undertaking is “a complete economic transformation of the world.”

This is not good news for those who love freedom, and it is not good news for Poland,” Rothbard asserted.

Standing next to a CFACT banner that read “No to UN Climate Hype” in Polish and surrounded by throngs who wore CFACT stickers bearing the same message in Poland’s distinctive red and white, the crowd gave hearty consent to Rothbard’s message.

No to UN climate hype!

He also quoted from the Book of Proverbs that “the wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are bold as a lion,” noting that “the environmentalists and the bureaucrats don’t want to debate these issues because they know they are deceiving the world.”

There hasn’t been any global warming in more than 15 years,” he noted,” and this is simply an excuse for more government oppression.”

We stand for freedom. We stand for opportunity. We stand for our families. And we stand for a strong and prosperous future. Together let us be bold as a lion,” he concluded.

The rally took place one day after CFACT keynoted a climate policy conference in Warsaw co-sponsored by Solidarity, the Institute for Globalization, and other Polish and European NGOs. There, members of the European Parliament, along with representatives from the U.S., Italy, Sweden, Hungary, and Poland formally signed the “Warsaw Declaration” calling on the UN to discontinue work on a new treaty until a genuine “scientific consensus is reached on the phenomenon of so-called global warming.”

CFACT Warsaw climate rally womenThe UN made a big mistake choosing Poland to host its global warming treaty summit.  The Poles see right through warming propaganda. Enduring generations of socialism has left them with a deep distaste for propaganda and bureaucratic control. Polish prosperity was blocked first by war and then by ideology. Poland deserves freedom and prosperity and knows it can’t move forward without energy. The brave Poles are not about to cede their sovereignty to UN control.

Polish feelings about the UN climate treaty echo what Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher told the Soviet Union. “Let Poland be Poland!”

CFACT, which has been an officially recognized NGO at UN conferences for nearly two decades, will be in Warsaw throughout the two weeks of COP 19. Its delegation will be headlined by Apollo VII astronaut Col. Walter Cunningham who is highly critical of UN climate science.

    Interesting few weeks. I’ve wanted to thank the French, The Russians, and now the Poles for Helping to keep America free. It’s a dangerous time, We have a President with no experience who surrounds himself with CARBON copies of himself.

    • Geof Barrington

      he is a president with to much experience who couldn’t provide a decent birth certificate , who was probably “installed” by one of the the security agencies .he is a tool of the elites

  • jameshrust

    geo brecke! Well written. Atmospheric carbon dioxide from burning fossil fuels has a negligible impact on climate unless you want to admit increased plant growth due to carbon dioxide being an airborne fertilizer is taking place. The U. S. economy is in a malaise due to anti-energy policies of the government. CFACT is exposing this injustice on global basis. Support CFACT so they can keep up this effort.

      Prof, so glad to know you… we have history to call on, and I’d bet that those countries who attempt to power their economies with fairy dust will be responsible for starting the next big wars.

      Fuk exceeded every design parameter, and if man demands more, it should be part of the design spec. Was FUK a 1950s design? too bad that we have all but shelved one of the lower risk, lower emission ‘on demand’ energy solutions.

    a tale of two people at a lectern. Poles – global warming is global warming and not an agenda; it has and will continue to have disastrous effects in our world making life increasingly harder and less hospitable for all of us and our children and grandchildren. The philppine leaders know this; they are getting some advance warning to the warming like canaries in the mine shaft.
    It is up to us to address this now. Please dont conflate Brezhnev, the Iron Curtain and Lech Walensa and carbon initiated global warming – climate change

      Global warming is a farce and a hoax! Only “little boy in the sandbox” minds fall for such. The world has been in a cooling trend the past decade. 2000 was the hottest year in the past 15 years. Some look at the extremes and declare disaster. Any given day record lows and highs are being set across the globe. When we get a record snowfall in September somewhere in the northern hemisphere it is blamed on global warming. When we get a record high in the summer months it is declared global warming. When we get record lows in Mississippi in May nothing is said. When hurricane Camille hit the MS Gulf Coast in 1969 no one said anything about global warming, nor when Frederic hit the Gulf Shores, AL area in 1979. Based on a global warning assumption, the Gulf States should be getting hammered with tropical storms and hurricanes in an every worsening way with each passing year, but it just ain’t happening! There were no hurricanes in the Gulf this year, and only one tropical storm. The weather of this planet will ebb and flow. Facts be known, global warming would probably be more of a benefit than a catastrophe for mankind. It would open up at least as many millions of acres of untouched land than the oceans would possibly inundate. Quiet frankly, I believe that the boundaries for the ocean were set by God Almighty, and that it will always be thereabouts the same. Many do not like to hear truth because the TRUTH is Jesus Christ was there in the beginning. He was the Beginner! If the creation, man, would honor his Creator, I dare say that the weather patterns of this world would normalize into a peaceful paradise at some point in time. There has only been 1 ice age and that was right after the flood. This world never knew snow until the flood. That is why tropical plant and animal fossils have been found at the poles. Now, either they were there to begin with, or they floated there during a world wide deluge. Either way, proof of a flood!!!!!!! Our Creator is in control. I trust He shall not allow His creation to be destroyed by warming or freezing. As a matter of fact, he promised to never destroy all of mankind again. We will take care of that ourselves!!

      So we have never had a typhoon in the Orient before? No warming for 17 years. Climate Gate. The mighty Mann Hockey Stick (before being arrested for being a street thug). Today’s weather is not climate.

        we have never had a typoon of the size and power as this pair plus or minus a couple trees down and people lost.

      idiotic5 before you start getting all hysterical with your “apocalyptic global warming sea level rising due to our sins of burning fossil fuels repent and buy a Prius” nonsense, you should really look at the typhoon frequency in the Philippines for the last 100+ years, you’ll find this recent storm to be quite typical. http://wattsupwiththat.com/2013/11/11/some-historical-perspectives-on-typhoon-haiyan-yolanda/

      Most people seem to ignore the single biggest lie behind the AGW scam… and that’s the fact that:

      WARMING IS GOOD!

      Throughout human history, man has always thrived during the earth’s warm periods and suffered & starved during the cold ones. The reason is simple: Crops don’t grow well in colder climates.

      And CO2 is NOT a pollutant. These phony environmentalists were claiming that we’d all be doomed if the CO2 level in our atmosphere went higher than 400 ppm (parts per million).

      On our submarines, the NAVY tries to keep the CO2 level down below 8,000 ppm, however when pressed on the subject, their chief technology people admit that they’ve seen little if any negative effects on sailors who spent time in submarines with even higher levels of CO2.

      CO2 levels in crowded nightclubs frequently rise to 4,000 ppm or higher.

      Want to see the effect of higher CO2 levels on living things ? Watch this short video on the subject:

      Don’t believe any of this climate change bull$hit… When you hear someone pushing this crap, simply chuckle & say:

      It’s the sun stupid!

      & then walk away…. Unfortunately, some of the people spouting this nonsense actually believe it… And you can’t argue with stupidity….

        It’s called Paid Trolls. Look it up. There is secret forefront organizations that are paid to troll message boards,blogs,newspaper comments.etc and the money gets funneled into international bank accounts out of you’re reach.

        Paid Trolls are very different as regular trolls say something nasty to start a fight then usually go away if no attention is given to them. They basically do drive-by posts.

        Paid Trolls will scour these places long before they make their comments and know who’s buttons to push like yours. Idic5 is a very good example of a professional troll that appears legit at first but after a while you will be able to tell he or she has a certain agenda to fullfill.

        I can’t believe people still fall for the bait hook line and sinker like a bunch of dumb fish. Maybe that’s what they are and something needs to kick them in the shins to wake up.

        I hope it won’t take another 9/11 to wake people up G0od forbid as it’s best to be non violent as violence will only make the Government more powerful as they allow the lower body of the NWO to fail on purpose to achieve higher status.

        Think the Russian Revolution where a bunch of gangs fought for control without any moral values if people are too quick to pull the trigger against the Government.

        We will only replace Tyranny with more Tyranny.

  • notbent

    Thank you Poles and CFACT for standing up to the Global Warming hoax! You are exactly correct: it’s just a ruse for the UN and nations’ power grab and redistribution of wealth; ultimately to control people. Unfortunately for the Global Warming Extremists – facts don’t back up their hysteria so they are now having to adopt the label ‘climate change’. LOL. Maybe next they’ll adopt ‘global cooling’ because of a cold winter.

  • V8 power

    Polish people will never believe in “global warming”, because we have harshest winters in europe, we also never gonna fall for communism, not after 40 years of socialist misery.

    • http://www.cfact.org/ CFACT Ed

      V, that is what every Pole we meet repeats over and over again. They love America and can’t understand how Americans can fall for something that to them is so obvious. They remind us that unless you were already forced into socialism you don’t really know common sense.

  • Col A

    Australia just elected a new government that will remove our stupid greenie carbon taxes.
    Australia will not attend this conference, most Australians would tell you the local anarchism for this event is a WAFTAM!!

    • geo brecke

      Hats off to CFACT and our Aussie Cousins too.. and I take the liberty of mentioning Jo Nova, among the smartest and best communicators I know. Is the rest of America waking up?

      • Heatblizzard

        And the rest of America falls into a deeper sleep. The beat goes on.

        Best to just shut up and do what they tell you or you will *disappear*.

  • westcoasttiger

    This is my first visit to your blog/website and it appears to be in line with my thinking and studies. I was heartened to see so many at the rally depicted in the video but was struck at the seemingly unenthusiastic response to Rothbard’s speech. Is that typical of the Polish or did they not altogether comprehend the content of the speech? I’m trying to find accuracy here so I’m wondering: was the crowd gathered more for their National Independence Day and just happened to be there when Rothbard spoke of the UN’s intentions? I’m truly puzzled by their passive response to the speech.

    • http://www.cfact.org/ CFACT Ed

      The crowd in Warsaw responded to David Rothbard with a tremendous ovation. You don’t hear it in the video because our staff planned CFACT’s next event while the mic was still on during the applause. We spend the next hour shaking hands and discussing in small groups.

    In the interest of accuracy in reporting, these demonstrations occur yearly, and are being organized by polish nationalists. They have nothing to do with global warming. If someone stood up and railed against “globalist agenda”, I am sure the crowd applauded. Parts of this crowd attacked Russian embassy, set fire to a sculpture that has something to do with gay rights, and otherwise rioted to cause major damage in the center of Warsaw. It is an increasingly distressing spectacle of yearly hooliganism.
    I do not care for global warming, but I also do not care for inaccurate reporting of this kind.

    • http://www.cfact.org/ CFACT Ed

      You had to be there, MF to see the Poles rushing over to wear a sticker reading “No to UN climate hype!” & sharing their story about not wanting to be bullied by the UN. They tell us that they can’t believe that they are signed into a treaty with Russia for natural gas for over 30 years. They want to be free and energy independent. Their grasp of the issue is more informed than so many in the West. We will work to change that and share the facts with the West and everywhere.

      • mf

        I am polish by birth. While I was not there (I live in the US), I speak the language fluently and thus can read polish newspapers, left wing and right wing, as they are now available online. I do visit as well.
        These people are nationalists, demonstrating yearly on the anniversary of re-creation of independent polish state in 1918, following ~150 years of partition. The independence day is celebrated yearly on November 11. They tend to believe that Poland was once again “sold out” to foreign interests and is losing it’s independence. There is a religious angle to the movement, and unfortunately a fair dose of anti-Semitism as well. If you want to look for their analogue in the US, Alex Jones would come the closest (minus anti-Semitism). The movement is opportunistically embraced by right wing politicians who lost power few years ago to pro-EU parties. Their demonstrations have been progressively turning more disruptive and violent over the last few years.
        I think it is fair to say that extreme nationalists represent a fairly small minority in Poland. Having said this, many people in Poland do not care for global warming. You can see it in mostly hostile comments to articles about the UN summit, even in left wing newspapers. Poland is naturally opposed to these policies because of abundant coal deposits which still provide most of energy generation. The opposition is shared by right wing and left wing parties. All of this being the case, 50,000 were not demonstrating against UN global warming summit in Warsaw. The summit and demonstrations were coincidental (whomever scheduled the UN summit on this date in Warsaw is a complete moron).

        • idic5

          very good info on the context of the protests, mf.

        • pickaboo

          I guess it’s because you don’t live hear. That’s completly absurd to connect anti-semitism with thos 50,000 people!

          • mf

            I do not want to open this thread, so I will not reply any further. Any movement in this day and age needs to be cognizant of the fact that it does leave behind a rich electronic trail. Words spoken in the internet never really vanish.

  • Mervyn

    The end of communism grew out of Poland’s rejection of communism. It seems the end of the climate change scare could also grow out of Poland’s rejection of IPCC man-made global warming alarmism.

    • http://www.cfact.org/ CFACT Ed

      Let us hope the world again follows Poland’s good example.

  • LeDa88

    Wonderful, put those commies at the UN and NGO’s in their place. The Poles are not buying the schtick, they’ve seen it all before. the latte sippers in the West think they are cool.

  • peter j

    Thank you Poland. It’s harder to brainwash people that have learned from experience not to trust anything except common sense.

      I never used to but I now believe in Spiritual energies and higher dimensions and creative energies never stay in the same spot for long.

      The trend now is creative energies shifting away from America and towards the governments we used to hate. Western Governments are now becoming the Eastern Governments and vica versa.

      As the old saying goes opposites attract.

      Best to just get along with the Globalists program by *hiding in plain sight* so you will save yourself a major beating from the Globalists as the bible firmly states there will be no place to run and people who do hide will pray for the rocks to fall on them as those times will be so dangerous that God will shorten the days. That means everything will happen really fast but end faster as well and that is what we are seeing.

      Ever watch The Hiding Place set during World War 2?

      The Ten Booms went several years harboring Jews above their store without getting caught and only got caught because they forgot to enforce the password system they made up when a major illness struck the family so a spy got in and reported them during that weakness. They almost made it to the end. SO CLOSE!!

      Divine Judgement? Destiny?

      Anyways they hide in plain sight and had an illegal radio only for emergencies and They did not make their home look like they were hiding anything or
      stockpiled food or ammo as that would advertise themselves to the SS.

      There are even some Germans that harbored Jews or helped them escape the country via falsified documents and Visas while never getting caught at all due to keeping their trap shut and/or bribing Nazis with goods that were hard to find.

      Those who did get caught usually didn’t have a way to make sure spies didn’t get in.

      As a final note.
      Watch out for Obama’s Israel peace treaty in 2014 that will pave the way for the Jewish Temple that will house the Future Antichrist as that will start the first 3 years of The Tribulation where there will be a false peace. It’s likely Obama will try to be a *hero* somehow and shock the whole world thru false miracles.

  • william santos

    It was a march for independence not for some protest against GW.
    http://en.poland.gov.pl/November,11,Polish,Independence,Day,10361.html
    National Independence Day is the most important Polish national holiday. On November 11, 1918, after 123 years of captivity, Poland regained its independence.

  • Katarzyna

    If CFACT in fact was the one who rallied the demontration, under the Polish law it is liable for the damages caused by the people (mostly white power nationalistic redneck scum) who took part in it (e.g. fire put to two buildings).
