ECUADOR'S PRESIDENT RAFAEL CORREA: "An environmental debt needs to be paid." An international court for environmental justice should be set up. "It is not understandable that we have courts to force countries to pay financial debts but we do not have a court to enforce environmental debts."
ROBERT MUGABE, PRESIDENT OF ZIMBABWE: "Developed countries are being miserly ... they burden us for cleaning up the mess they have created."
'f you are a climate alarmist and you cannot show why these scientists are wrong, then I encourage you to take action. Admit your climate religion is wrong, because contained above is proof your climate religion is wrong.'
Coleman: 'There is no significant man-made global warming now and there is little possibility -- almost zero possibility -- of any in the future. This is science gone bad. It has become political. It has become an environmental movement.
The Prince reminds me somewhat of Al Gore here in the U.S. -- a lifetime devoted to something that is science and they are not scientists. They have had the lemonade and drunk it fully. I am sure they believe and they are sincere, but they are dead wrong.'
Nov 20, 1974: Ukiah Daily Journal: 'The cooling trend heralds the start of another ice age, of a duration that could last from 200 years to several millenia.' - 'Sixty theories have been advanced, he said, to explain the global cooling period.'
Note how a huge swathe of South America has been labelled as “record warmest”. And what is this based on?
In fact, there is virtually no temperature data available at all for that particular area, including nearly all of Brazil. The so-called record temperatures in Brazil and neighbouring countries are pure fabrication.
The Pope declared it would by “‘sad, and I dare say even catastrophic,’ were particular interests to prevail over the common good at the upcoming climate conference in Paris.” It would be sadder if we signed over to politicians even more control than they already have to solve a problem that doesn’t exist. That would really hurt The Poor™. So why does the Pope believe all these demonstrably false things? Bad advice, in part.
The pope was asked if the U.N. climate summit in Paris would mark a turnaround in the fight against global warming. "I am not sure, but I can say to you 'now or never'," he said. "Every year the problems are getting worse. We are at the limits. If I may use a strong word I would say that we are at the limits of suicide." He spoke of retreating glaciers in Greenland and low-lying countries at risk from rising sea levels. "I am sure that the (Paris delegates) have goodwill to do something. I hope it turns out this way and I am praying that it will," he said.
Marc Morano in USA Today's 'Opposing View' on UN summit: "The U.N. summit’s goal of limiting the Earth’s temperature to a rise of no more than 2 degrees Celsius is also not based on science. The Climategate emails revealed that even U.N. scientists admitted that the 2-degree goal was “plucked out of thin air.” The notion that a U.N. agreement to limit emissions will somehow alter the Earth’s temperature or storminess is bordering on belief in witchcraft."
Morano: 'If we faced a climate catastrophe and had to rely on the U.N. to save us, we’d all be doomed! Nothing the U.N. is proposing to “solve” climate change would have any measurable impact on temperatures or storminess, even if you accept their scientific claims.'
Morano on Obama claiming a UN climate treaty will be a rebuke to ISIS: "Obama is essentially saying 'Take that ISIS, we are going to hamstring our economies, limit our growth, kill our jobs, destroy our energy sectors, and centrally plan our economy.' That will really show ISIS. They will run in fear."
www.ClimateHustle.com: CFACT is also announcing the world premiere of its groundbreaking new documentary in Paris, "Climate Hustle," hosted by Morano. "Climate Hustle" assembles an impressive group of experts in climate science and policy, many of whom worked on the UN's climate assessments, but left after the UN ignored overwhelming evidence that contradicts its position. The film is planned for U.S. release in 2016. "Climate Hustle" will premiere at an invitation-only event at the Cinéma du Panthéon, beside the Sorbonne, on Monday, December 7, at 7:30 PM. There will be a red-carpet ceremony and champagne reception prior to the screening. Credentialed media that RSVP may be able to attend, but seating is very limited.
NYT: 'Here is a guide to what is at stake. If the talks fail -- as they did in two previous attempts to achieve such a deal -- then nations will continue on a trajectory that scientists say locks the planet into a future of rising sea levels, more frequent floods, worsening droughts, food and water shortages, destructive hurricanes and other catastrophic events.'
'If anything, some say, the bloodshed could make countries more determined to reach a deal to address a problem that's widely seen as a factor that contributes to conflict. "There may be even more awareness of how important it is to address climate change, given the impact of climate change on the stability of countries," said Dutch climate envoy Michel Rentenaar.
In a long address in Spanish at the United Nations regional office, Francis said it would be "catastrophic" if particular interests prevailed over the common good of people and the planet or if the conference were manipulated by business interests.
