30 Oct 10 - After three decades of trying to push the global warming
scam to a point where billions could be made selling and trading bogus
“carbon credits”, the global schemers have abandoned it in the wake of
2009 revelations that a handful of rogue climate scientists were
literally inventing the data to support it.
If there is one lesson to be learned from and about environmentalists,
it is that they are utterly relentless. The ultimate goal is one-world
government directed from the United Nations by unelected bureaucrats who
are soulless strangers to the truth, to morality, to humanity.
The United States supports this abomination to the tune of billions
The United Nations is a place where some of the world’s dictatorships
have delegates representing them on its Human Rights Council, where a
vast Oil-for-Food scandal flourished while Saddam Hussein held power in
Iraq, where a single agency’s sole purpose is to ensure that
Palestinians remain refugees six decades after the rebirth of Israel.
It is an organization where all manner of international treaties are
ginned up to extend its control over the entire land mass and all the
waters of the earth.
It is where the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)
practiced its deceit, regularly documenting a rise in the earth’s
average temperature even when a new natural cooling cycle began in 1998.
Everything that could be attributed to a phony global warming to keep
the people of the world scared flowed from this enormous lie. It caused
governments to invest billions into the worst forms of energy, wind and
solar, along with endless other equally worthless “Green” programs.
So, now, permit me to introduce you to the NEXT Big Lie—biodiversity!
It is the claim that a “Global extinction crisis looms, new study says.”
That’s the headline on an October 27 Washington Post article by Juliet
Eilperin, the Post’s designated shameless scaremongering reporter.
In June, the delegates from 200 nations gathered in Busan, a South
Korean port city, under the banner of the Intergovernmental Science
Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES), a
platform just like the discredited IPCC, but with the goal of denying
vast areas of the earth from the development needed to feed six billion
people and provide the raw materials vital to the energy required for a
modern technological society dependent on electricity and on
The “reason” for this is the alleged extinction of “nearly 26,000
species across the globe.” The list was compiled by the International
Union for Conservation of Nature that purports to count all the mammals,
birds, amphibians, reptiles, and fish in the world to determine how
The very idea evokes incredulity. It is laughable and it is impossible.
In the same fashion people were told that the global warmers could
predict the temperature of the Earth fifty to a hundred years from now,
we are expected to believe that all current species are imperiled. Just
as humans were blamed for a non-existent rise in the Earth’s
temperature, human are blamed on a massive and fictional extinction.
Consider that, from the earliest forms of life on earth to the existence
of present species all have been engaged daily in the act of killing and
eating one another. Ruminants that dine on grasses and other vegetation
remain the prey for predator species.
Consider that of all
the species that ever existed on Earth, 99% are extinct.
Nicholas K. Dulvy, a co-author of the list of alleged endangered
species, complained that “We’ve transformed a third of the habitable
land on earth for food production.” Oh, heaven forbid that humans should
have enough food!
So, naturally, as reporter Eilperin noted, “Environmental groups are
pushing for a goal of protecting 25 percent of all land on earth and 15
percent of the sea by 2020” even though, under the UN Convention on
Biological Diversity, roughly 14 percent of terrestrial areas and less
than one percent of the ocean are already subject to so-called
Expect to begin hearing from yet a new group of “scientists” claiming
that every creature from antelopes to zebras, from anteaters to weasels,
albatrosses to vultures, crocodiles to vipers, and all the fish in the
seas are doomed! Doomed! Doomed!
Billions of dollars that should go to feeding the hungry, caring for the
sick, and all manner of humanitarian needs will be siphoned off by this
new group of United Nations grifters and charlatans for endless
“research” grants and, of course, more international meetings to discuss
this horrible new crisis.
This is how the cruel enviro-mafia works. We have all had a taste of it
since the late 1980s when the global warming hoax was first perpetrated.
The biodiversity lie needs a quicker death.
