The chairman of the U.N. IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) is Rajendra Pachauri, an Indian
guru shaman scientist. But holy cow, whatever he is, he’s a nut case.
(Like Al Gore and Our Sun God, Pachuari is a Nobel Prize (2007) recipient. Picture above)
First, he says that whatever the fudging, lying, hiding, and mugging it took to assemble the IPCC climate change reports, they are completely reliable. Then, based on this sacred reliability he proposes some changes in worldwide behavior to be incorporated into the upcoming Copenhagen climate summit, under the contention that “our lifestyles are unsustainable.”
1) Metering energy consumption (including lighting, heating, air conditioning, etc.) of hotel guests, then charging them extra for their usage.
2) Increasing taxation on air travel because “…people were still making the ‘irrational’ choice to fly. Taxation should be used to discourage them.”
3) “..advocating, in an interview with the Observer, that people should eat less meat because of the levels of carbon emissions associated with rearing livestock.” (cattle farts)
4) Saying “…car use would have to be ‘curbed’: ‘I think we can certainly use pricing to regulate the use of private vehicles.'”
In other words, make the successful Western countries more like the less successful Asian countries. And that is exactly what the upcoming Copenhagen conference is designed to accomplish.
Our bowing Obama is on his way to that conference to join France’s Sarkozy and Britain’s Gordon Brown, who propose that the developed world pledge at least $10 billion per year (in reparations for past industrialization) to be distributed to the less successful third world countries. Guess where they think that money should come from?
