The Fix Is In

Posted by Mark on February 2, 2007

I’m not a big gambler….and I’m not a conspiracy theorist, but in this case- I now share what both groups often lament- THE FIX IS IN. Hmmm….a liberal U.N. study, a French-led effort, an update on global warming. Uh…gee…I wonder what the findings will be?

In the strongest language it has ever used, a United Nations panel says global warming is “very likely” caused by human activities and has become a runaway train that cannot be stopped. The warming of Earth and increases in sea levels “would continue for centuries … even if greenhouse gas concentrations were to be stabilized,” according to a 20-page summary of the report that was leaked to wire services.

The summary of the fourth report by the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, or IPCC, was scheduled for release this morning in Paris. But scientists involved in the final editing process have been leaking bits and pieces from it all week, culminating in the leaking of the full report eight hours before its release.The phrase “very likely” indicates a 90% certainty. The last IPCC report, issued five years ago, said it was “likely” that human activity was at fault, indicating a certainty of 66%.

Many scientists had argued during the editing process that the report should say it is “virtually certain” that human activities are causing global warming. That would indicate a 99% certainty.

But the change was strongly resisted by China, among other nations, because of its reliance on fossil fuels to help build its economy.

STOP!

Read that last sentence….anyone thinking what I’m thinking? If China was able to change the wording of the report…couldn’t all those who want the report to reflect THEIR AGENDA– do the same? That’s why this is a hack job…a politically motivated piece of liberal compost.

Lest any of you loons, moonbats, and those who voted for Al Gore for president forget….last year, the UN said it was cow FLATULENCE.

Livestock are responsible for 18 per cent of the greenhouse gases that cause global warming, more than cars, planes and all other forms of transport put together. Burning fuel to produce fertiliser to grow feed, to produce meat and to transport it – and clearing vegetation for grazing – produces 9 per cent of all emissions of carbon dioxide, the most common greenhouse gas.

And their wind and manure emit more than one third of emissions of another, methane, which warms the world 20 times faster than carbon dioxide.

I’m glad the UN gave us an update. Um…excuse me a second: “Waiter- I’d like a huge bowl of lentil soup and a plate of beans and franks… please.”
