Loss and damage is diplomatic code for the idea that the developed countries, especially America, should pay the developing countries for the bad things that they attribute to climate change. This includes pretty much all bad weather, plus the supposed effects of sea level rise, and who knows what else.
CFACT barnstormed CPAC, The Conservative Political Action Conference, this weekend with a series of activities that culminated in a light saber duel between “Green Energy” Darth Vader and the “Reliable Energy” Jedi!
Massive surveillance technology in the hands of a politically correct UN bureaucracy taking us back to serfdom is not quite the "future we want."
Digital surveillance featured prominently at the UN's 9th World Urban Forum (WUF9) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. WATCH NOW.
A presenter makes a revealing slip at the United Nations ninth World Urban Forum (WUF 9) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. WATCH NOW.
No one's solutions at the UN conference in Kuala Lumpur appear to include free markets, individual liberty or natinal sovereignty. These are the wellsprings of the kind of prosperity that is truly sustainable. The UN has it backwards.
During a session entitled, “One Planet Cities” a speaker from Denmark proudly explained how important youth are to the NUA. He said, “we’ve been educating our children for the last 25 years on anthropogenic global warming” and since many are now adults “they are actively implementing policies to combat Climate Change.”
It didn't take long at the UN's "World Urban Forum," currently underway in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, for those assembled to voice their displeasure with American freedom.
The media isn’t very interested in what the UN is planning for us but we need to be. We are going to find out and can’t wait to report back to you.
Major changes in UN structure take a long time but they have to start somewhere. At last week's UN climate summit the Ukraine floated a truly radical proposal. It amounts to making parties other than countries official members of the climate club. The parties in question include corporations and political entities like US states and cities, perhaps even NGOs like Greenpeace. The goal is the get as many heavyweights onto the official green team as possible.
As usual with the green press, it is more a matter of weaving together a series of half truths, omissions and advocacy, than of outright lies.
The Greens are giving great thanks for how cooperative the Trump team of negotiators was at the Bonn climate conference. In reality there was no Trump negotiating team.
COP 23, the UN climate conference in Bonn, Germany, ended with a coal-powered whimper. Poor countries sought cash, China sought opaque emissions reporting and Polish coal miners host the next one.
The Climate Home news service puts it this way: "Climate talks in Bonn have been held hostage for more than a week over the issue, as poor countries called for a space to hold the rich to account on their promises."
CFACT jumped in a complimentary electric car at the UN climate conference to move between the official negotiating zone and the NGO zone. Our driver told us he hates the electric car,because its limited range makes it next to useless for a professional taxi driver.
