Iran’s President Says Materialism, Capitalism Cause of Climate Change

Islamic Republic of Iran News Network Television (IRINN) as translated by Open Source Center (OSC)

Friday, December 18, 2009

(Ahmadinezhad in progress) … … Every year millions of people lose their lives as a result of pollution, and skin and respiratory illnesses are on the increase. If greenhouse-gases continue to increase at the present speed, they will reach twice the level of gases before industrialization. In other words, instead of a reduction of 50 per cent, they will increase by 50 per cent and will pose a real challenge to the natural environment.

Gentleman, you may associate these remarks with various similar and related issues in your minds. However, the question is this: What is the cause? The first answer is the increase in the consumption of fossil fuels and widespread and destructive meddling with nature. But the main and more serious question is: What is the factor responsible for the increase in the use of fossil fuel and meddling with nature? I would like to present the answer to this question in two levels.

The first level takes a fundamental and macro view of the problem. Is the climate change phenomenon merely an ecological problem or is it first and foremost a cultural, behavioral and economical issue?

Dear colleagues, a glance at the changes in social circumstances and thought processes in the, at least, past two decades will reveal the dominance of materialism over thought, behavior and ties in vast parts of the world. The survival of capitalism depends on the rigorous spread of consumerism and widespread meddling in nature.

The Real Melt-Down in Copenhagen

If the United Nations cannot run a conference in Copenhagen without riots in the streets, why would anyone want to turn over the governance of the world to these people?

For old “skeptics” like myself, watching the chaos in Copenhagen was sheer joy. It’s always a mistake for liars to gather in one place to trumpet their lies because it always attracts people who believe that the truth is the best antidote.

Low targets, goals dropped: Copenhagen ends in failure

The UN climate summit reached a weak outline of a global agreement last night in Copenhagen, falling far short of what Britain and many poor countries were seeking and leaving months of tough negotiations to come.

Scientists Attach Hope to Wrong Rising Star – Blow Credibility & Get Gored

As polls show credibility for scientists falling off the same cliff as Obama, Wall Street, politicians and the media, perhaps there is a reason. Perhaps there is a link between them.

To Denmark, From Russia, With Lies

As Ronald Reagan used to say, facts are stubborn things. The fact is that imminent man-made climate disaster has been shown to be a massive fraud driven by manipulated data and deliberate suppression of facts to the contrary.

The latest Climate-gate shoe to drop is the Moscow-based Institute of Economic Analysis (IEA) accusation that the Hadley Center of Britain’s Meteorological Office deliberately relied on a carefully selected 25% of Russia’s weather stations that fit its theory of global warming.

At Copenhagen, Chávez Suggests Obama is the Devil

Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez spoke at the United Nations Climate Change Conference today in Copenhagen, and suggested that President Obama is the devil.

Chávez said that “the Kyoto Protocol cannot be declared dead or extinguished, which is what the US pretends to do. Which is why (President) Evo (Morales of Bolivia) tells a great truth: If Obama, Nobel War Prize, said here, by the way, it smells of sulfur here. It smells of sulfur. It keeps smelling of sulfur in this world.

Global Warming Science? Nope, Global Warming Scam

Trick No. 1: You Destroy Conflicting Data:
Trick No. 2: You Cherry Pick Your Data to Show a Recent Rise in Temperatures
Trick No. 3: You “Adjust” Away Inconvenient Trends That Threaten to Derail Your Hypothesis:
Trick No. 4: You Cherry Pick the Model to “Prove” Global Warming is Real
Trick No. 5: You Spend a Lot of time Promoting Your Views with the Media–and Publicly Attacking Your Skeptics.
Trick No. 6: “The Science is Settled. The Science is Settled.”

The Climategate code

In addition to the more than 1,000 emails and assorted documents that were leaked to the public a month ago, there were several files containing software code, seemingly source code for the calculations the Climate Research Unit of East Anglia used for processing and adjusting temperatures for their calculations of global warming.

Immediately after the leak, attention was drawn to comments in the code’s documentation that seemed to indicate that the programmers had difficulty understanding what had been done previously, did not feel capable of righting the programming wrongs, and on occasion invented weather stations to park data or even invented data.

Now, as computer scientists and programmers have had more time to analyse the code as well as the comments, programming errors that would change calculations or even cause the program to skip data are coming to light.

Exclusive: Lead Author Admits Deleting Inconvenient Opinions From IPCC Report

The latest installment of Jesse Ventura’s highly successful Conspiracy Theory show exposed millions of viewers on national TV last night to the climate change fraud, blowing a giant hole in the global warming scam by exposing how its adherents comprise wealthy industrialists making billions in profits by fearmongering about the environment.

The most damning part of the program is when Ben Santer, a climate researcher and lead IPCC author of Chapter 8 of the 1995 IPCC Working Group I Report, admits that he deleted sections of the IPCC chapter which stated that humans were not responsible for climate change.  [Video Clips Included]

Chavez on Climate Change: Blame Capitalism

President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela Hugo Chavez received resounding cheers from the audience after saying, “Seven percent of the world population – some 500 million people – are responsible for half of contaminating emissions. Capitalism is to blame for this.”

Inhofe arrives in Copenhagen to say US will not pass climate bill

Inhofe, who held an impromptu press conference in the Bella Center, said the chances of passage of pending climate and energy legislation were “zero” and would remain so if such a bill was financially harmful to Americans in any way.

The Ultimate Lesson to Take From Climategate and Copenhagen

Science today is more confusing than enlightening. Driven by vain ambition, scientists think science and religion are irreconcilable. Some religious people scorn science, claiming it to be man-devised evil intended to undermine religion. The truth is, God says science and religion are totally reconcilable and that He wants man to embrace and practice science. But He wants it utilized His way, with science being used to prove His existence, and with absolute knowledge as revealed in the Bible being the foundation on which the scientific method is practiced.

ClimateGate Just Got Much, Much Bigger

The long and the short of it is best summarized by the Telegraph’s James Dellingpole: “What the Russians are suggesting here, in other words, is that the entire global temperature record used by the IPCC to inform world government policy is a crock.”

U.S. says it could help raise $100 billion to fight climate change

“If there is not even a commitment to pursue transparency, that’s kind of a deal-breaker for us,” Clinton said.

Environmental groups and other nonprofits working closely with the negotiators here said the U.S. announcement –which follows major commitments from Japan, France and other developed nations — could break what has been a nearly two-week deadlock on key issues.

Carl Pope, executive director of the Sierra Club, called it “truly a bombshell.”

Doubt grows over Copenhagen talks

Climate talks at a UN conference in Copenhagen have reached a crisis point, with Germany’s leader describing reports from talks as “not good” and a British politician warning of “a farce”.

Wary Nations Face Cultural Divide on Climate Treaty’s ‘Transparency

COPENHAGEN — Trust between nations is in short supply at the U.N. climate talks. Dealing with it has emerged as the linchpin in the negotiations of a new global warming treaty.

Global warming reporters left out in the cold

The organizers of that global warming conference believe they’re smart enough to run the planet. But evidently, they couldn’t “even figure out that 45,000 people won’t into a 15,000 person building.”

Copenhagen: Al Gore ‘ing the Truth on Climate Change

This is an Orwellian example of what to expect from the so-called “man-made” global warming crowd if they get their desired power to govern every aspect of our lives. These unelected “world government” bureaucrats in Copenhagen, who pontificate a totalitarian system of UN World “governance” over all nations, including the United States, in order to “save the planet” from “human destruction,” really desire nothing more than being in control of everyone else.

The move was simply because a number of heads of state and government are arriving at the conference for high-level negotiations, and it made more sense for the Danish prime minister to be at the helm, the statement said.

Gore Refuses ClimateGate Questions

United Nations security officials have once again prevented a journalist from asking attendees at the climate change conference in Copenhagen questions about the growing ClimateGate scandal.

This time, the person on the receiving end of the apparently forbidden queries was Nobel Laureate Al Gore.

‘Climategate’ divides scientists in Copenhagen

Indeed, a climate report released by the Indian environment minister last month questioned Western models of calculating global warming statistics in a quest to end reliance on Western science. It argued that there is no evidence that climate change is causing Himalayan glaciers to melt.

Super cool global map with question snap-shots.  An early look suggests that many are focusing on two things:

1.  The insanity of creating a financial carbon trade market instead of focusing on things that are rooted in the ground and impact on what people actually do every day–the public sees Maurice Strong and the Carbon Trade deal as a scam.

2.  The utility of rapidly pushing back livestock and the meating of captive meat, as this has an immediate effect not only on methane gas and other climate issues, but on reducing feces into the ground water (remember the cow shit into the spinach?).

Developing countries boycott UN climate talks

COPENHAGEN – China, India and other developing nations boycotted U.N. climate talks Monday, bringing negotiations to a halt with their demand that rich countries discuss much deeper cuts in their greenhouse gas emissions.

“We are seeing the death of the Kyoto Protocol,” said Djemouai Kamel of Algeria, the head of the 50-nation Africa group.

It was the second time the Africans have disrupted the climate talks. At the last round of negotiations in November, the African bloc forced a one-day suspension until wealthy countries agreed to spell out what steps they will take to reduce emissions.

Climategate: Who are the ‘deniers’ now?

A couple of years ago, supporters of global warming theory began referring to skeptics as “deniers” — implying that anyone who doubted climate change should be lumped with Holocaust deniers.

Now the shoe is on the other foot, thanks to the eye-popping e-mail dump that hit the Internet recently and quickly became known as “Climategate.” The response of much of the global-warming “community” has been … denial.

Letter: ‘Climategate’ gets short shrift in news columns

Does the Amarillo Globe-News sleepwalk through current events? On Dec. 4, you published an article titled, “Climate experts: Adapt or Die,” which read, “With the world losing the battle against global warming so far, experts are warning that humans need to follow nature’s example: Adapt or die … One difficulty is that climate change is happening rapidly.”

On Nov. 28, Daily Telegraph journalist Christopher Booker opined on global warming, “Our hopelessly compromised scientific establishment cannot be allowed to get away with a whitewash of what has become the greatest scientific scandal of our age (Climategate).”

Climategate has revealed widespread global-warming fraud.

What climategate really tells us

One of the several scandalous revelations of the Climategate e-mails is that this claim of consensus is a lie. Never mind the skeptics: It turns out many of the scientists in the CRU inner circle had doubts and disagreements about their data, methodology and conclusions, and often bickered with one another about defects in their project.

UN Security Stops Journalist’s  Questions About ClimateGate

A Stanford Professor has used United Nation security officers to silence a journalist asking him “inconvenient questions”  during a press briefing at the climate change conference in Copenhagen.

Professor Stephen Schneider’s assistant requested armed UN security officers who held film maker Phelim McAleer, ordered him to stop filming and prevented further questioning after the press conference where the Stanford academic was launching a book.

Vindicating climate change skeptics

The recent revelations — now known as Climategate — of how proponents of man-made global warming fudged and manipulated temperature data at the University of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit in the U.K. to back the IPCC claim confirms the skepticism of many scientists for more than a decade.

Among scientists voicing concerns over the IPCC claim was Freeman Dyson, the eminent physicist and mathematician at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey.

ClimateGate, Copenhagen, and the only two questions that really matter

  1. What if global warming is real?
  2. What if global warming is nothing but a great con-job being played on a gullible world population?

The Multi-Billion Trade in Carbon Derivatives, Copenhagen’s Hidden Agenda

As I have previously shown, speculative derivatives (especially credit default swaps) are a primary cause of the economic crisis.   And I have pointed out that (1) the giant banks will make a killing on carbon trading, (2) while the leading scientist crusading against global warming says it won’t work, and (3) there is a very high probability of massive fraud and insider trading in the carbon trading markets.   Now, Bloomberg notes that the carbon trading scheme will be centered around derivatives…

The COP15 problem is not climate change skepticism, it is anti nuclear fanaticism

Paradoxically, the AGW skeptics are not the most serious enemies of AGW mitigation. The eco-extremests are. If AGW skeptics are basically in denial about AGW, they are not in denial about the essential role of nuclear power in a future of energy. Many AGW skeptics harbor rational doubts about the use of renewables in future energy schemes. The Green mainstream remains incapable of anything but a dogmatic hostility toward nuclear power. This anti-nuclear attitude, leads anti-nuclear environmentalists to hugely exaggerate the liabilities of nuclear power as well as engage in self-deceptive denials of the liabilities of renewable generation systems.

No denying: In resolving questions about global-warming research, let’s follow the science

We can identify at least two areas where clear answers are required:

• • The methodology. If there was a demonstrable effort made by CRU scientists or others to change data to guide it toward a preferred result, this should be identified and condemned by the scientific community. A consensus built around faulty data is as useless as one built around the premise that water freezes at 50 degrees Fahrenheit rather than 32 degrees Fahrenheit. The scientifically observable facts will not change to accommodate a faulty consensus.

• • The claims that peer review boards have been set up to deliberately exclude climate change skeptics must be answered. The strength of the scientific method rests on full faith in peer review. It must not be rigged.
