There are plenty of reasons why the UN continues to beat the drum loudly on Global Warming,
The United Nations secretary-general on Sunday urged world policymakers to do more to address the threat of climate change as negotiators attempt to forge a new global warming pact next year.
Speaking to hundreds of international delegates at the start of a climate gathering in Abu Dhabi, Ban Ki-moon warned that time is running out to reduce harmful emissions and that political leaders need to offer bold commitments to drive meaningful change.
“If we do not take urgent action, all our plans for increased global prosperity and security will be undone,” he warned.
The prosperity he was talking about of course was that of the bureaucrats and NGO who draw wealth from this nonsense, not to mention the conferences in comfortable parts of the words with good wine, good food, ample female & male company for sale or rent on the taxpayer’s dime.
Likewise the ability to grease friends is a big reason Obama & the American left were doing the same back in may:
White House adviser John Podesta told reporters Monday afternoon that Congress could not derail the Obama administration’s efforts to unilaterally enact policies to fight global warming.
Podesta said that the president was committed to using executive orders to pass regulations under the Clean Air Act to limit carbon dioxide emissions that they say cause global warming
and this week when President Obama says something like this:
In a speech to the League of Conservation Voters, an environmental activist organization, Obama mocked the GOP for playing dumb on global warming in order to evade the criticism of tea party groups and other elements on their right wing.
Republicans have ‘ducked the question and said, “Hey, I’m not a scientist”,’ Obama claimed, ‘which really translates into “I accept that man-made climate change is real, but if I say so I will be run out of town by a bunch of fringe elements, so I am just going to pretend like – I don’t know – I can’t read”.’
That basic motivation is pretty much the same nationally & globally from the time this nonsense began but both the UN & Obama share an even bigger motivation to continue to push and invent this crisis:
Right now the world & Obama are facing several international Crises: The War in Syria, Nukes in Iran and Russia’s expansion into first Crimea & the Ukraine, ISIS in Iraq.
For the UN this is bad news because in theory solving international problems like these are the reason why the UN is supposed to exist, but we have reached a point where the UN actually exists so that there is a steady stream of income for a group of international leeches who are willing to sell the legitimacy they hold legacy to the highest bidder.
To take sides in any of these issues is to dissuade potential bidders and that’s bad for the graft business and taking sides with the losers would be more so.
For the President however there is a larger issue, it’s the same reason why the name of the Redskins is a headline. It’s the prevent defense.
He needs to give his allies in the congress & media something to talk about other than the actual issues of the day.
They can’t talk about the international issues I raised above, every single one of them point to failure of leadership and Barack Obama is leader of the free world.
They can’t talk about the IRS scandal or any of the other scandals, they expose the administration for what they are, they certainly can’t talk about Obamacare which has the potential to create the 2nd big red wave in four years and with the economy contracting they can’t even spin the figures.
So instead another topic must be found something that will give the collected media something anything to fill space that doesn’t suggest failure which is the one constant of the presidency of Barack Obama
It’s the left’s version of the prevent defense for the low information voter they have 30 months to kill, the World Cup won’t last forever and Malaysia is unlikely to lose another airliner in the same circumstances to fill a month of CNN’s time.
His greatest ally is the culture, we’ve become so superficial that their plan just might work.
