The Gore Effect strikes again.
Global warmists are facing record cold temperatures as they meet this week in Cancun.
Watts Up With That reported:

Dr. Roy Spencer, who is in Cancun representing climate skepticism on behalf of CFACT writes on his blog:

Today’s my first full day in Cancun at COP-16, and as I emerged from my hotel room I was greeted by a brisk, dry, cool Canadian breeze.

It was 54 deg. F in Cancun this morning — a record low for the date. (BTW, Cancun is nowhere near Canada).

Al Gore is not supposed to be here…but it could be that the Gore Effect has announced his secret arrival. We will check into this.

    forget climate change.. they need to work on solving
    pollution problems, especially the brain altering kind..

    It’s single digits this morning in the Twin Cities… in early December. While that isn’t “climate” we’ve all noticed how bloody cold the winters have gotten. This sort of cold shouldn’t happen until mid to late January. And now my heating bills will skyrocket due to Barry’s ‘managing’ of our nation’s energy supplies.

    The wife and I built a winter home in the Tropics. We’ll be moving there in a couple years when our granddaughters hit high school.

    Every one of those people probably FLEW to Cancun in carbon-spewing airplanes. They are, no doubt, staying in hotels with electricity. They’ll take tours on buses or in cars that are probably powered by eeeeeevil petroleum products. How was their clothing made – even those “environmental” tee shirts they’re sporting – and by whom? When they return home in an aeroplane and drive back to their houses…made with wood…powered with electricity…they’ll get on their computers…they’ll watch their televisions…they’ll listen to their music…they’ll eat food out of their refridgerators (filled with evil coolants). When people like Algore and this bunch decide to live in the woods like animals, go naked, and forage for nuts, berries and roots (no cooking, because even wood fires produce carbon as well as kill trees), and wipe their rear ends with leaves, then MAYBE I’ll listen for one minute to anything they have to say.

    Freud Called it Displacement

    “Van Jones is the gift that keeps on giving,” writes Glenn Reynolds, along with a letter from one of his readers:

    “It’s interesting. People that keep saying America doesn’t have to be a military power are just thrilled to use extraordinary police powers on America’s citizens. I wonder if the two positions are related?”


    Freud called it displacement. People fixate on the environment when they can’t deal with real threats. Combating the climate gives nonhawks a chance to look tough. They can flex their muscle for Mother Nature, take a preemptive strike at an SUV. Forget the Patriot Act, it’s Kyoto that’ll save you.

    Great point, Reubacca! Limbaugh called that years ago right after the fall of Eastern Europe. He was predicting the Commie-lovers would go into the Green movement and he was right again.

    Looking at that photo, that’s why I left WWF years ago. They started out as a decent environmental organization and rapidly descended into Liberal craziness.

    Breaking The War Mentality

    by Barack Obama
    March 10, 1983

    [In 1933 the German establishment thought it could use Hitler to restore a modicum of order to the confused and confusing Weimar Republic. In fact, Hitler did strengthen the German establishment, but not exactly in the way the bankers and businessmen had wanted; and now, fifty years later, it is clear who was using whom. Nevertheless, the Western World did not complain in 1933 because Hitler, though a fascist and a totalitarian, was seen, like countless American puppet dictators today, as someone who leaves the established order in place.

    Not so the Greens. If a group of young, anti-establishment pacifists wiith unusual ideas and uncomfortable answers to hard questions terrifies us more today than Hitler, Himmler, Goering and Goebbels did back in 1933, our terror says more about us than it does about the Greens or the Germans. It indicates that we have failed to comprehend the meaning of Nazism and blind obedience to authority in their full horror, and that we, unlike the Greens, have yet ourselves to learn the democratic lesson that we have taught the Germans so well.]

    More Proof of Obama’s Socialism.

    [Obama won his State Senate seat as a member of the New Party, an extreme left wing group run by a former Jesse Jackson campaign manager. Its mind-blowing that Obama could have got to the top of the Democrat ticket without at one wise man screening him. Well the Dems made this bed, now they must live with these shocking truths about the type of communist-like changes Obama would bring to the America.]

    New Party USA

    [Some of these chapters — such as those in Chicago and Little Rock — had their main bases of support in the low-income community organizing group ACORN, along with some support from various labor unions (especially ACORN-allied locals of the Service Employees International Union).]

    The Greens

    [First organized as the Green Committees of Correspondence, The Greens/ Green Party USA is the oldest, continuously active Green organization in America. It was our organization that originated the Green Ten Key Values which are now accepted by nearly all Greens in the United States. The Ten Key Values when correctly understood point to a new society and way of life based on Ecological Wisdom, Social Justice, Cooperation and Non-violence. The Ten Key Values point to a world entirely different from our present world of violence, corporate greed, and ecological destruction.

    There are many things that will have to be changed before a truly democratic and Green society can exist but one is the tremendous and unfair gap today between the rich and the poor; in fact even between the very rich and the average person.]

    An Economic Bill of Rights

    [*Universal Social Security: Taxable Basic Income Grants for all, structured into the progressive income tax, that guarantee an adequate income sufficient to maintain a modest standard of living. Start at $500/week ($26,000/year) for a family of four, with $62.50/week ($3,250/year) adjustments for more or fewer household members in 2000 and index to the cost of living.
    * Jobs for All: A guaranteed right to job. Full employment through community-based public works and community service jobs programs, federally financed and community controlled.
    * Living Wages: A family-supporting minimum wage. Start at $12.50 per hour in 2000 and index to the cost of living.
    * 30-Hour Work Week: A 6-hour day with no cut in pay for the bottom 80% of the pay scale.
    * Social Dividends: A “second paycheck” for workers enabling them to receive 40 hours pay for 30 hours work. Paid by the government out of progressive taxes so that social productivity gains are shared equitably.
    * Universal Health Care: A single-payer National Health Program to provide free medical and dental care for all, with freedom of choice for consumers among both conventional and alternative health care providers, federally financed and controlled by democratically elected local boards.
    * Free Child Care: Available voluntarily and free for all who need it, modeled after Head Start, federally financed, and community controlled.
    * Lifelong Public Education: Free, quality public education from pre-school through graduate school at public institutions.
    * Affordable Housing: Expand rental and home ownership assistance, fair housing enforcement, public housing, and capital grants to non-profit developers of affordable housing until all people can obtain decent housing at no more than 25% of their income. Democratic community control of publicly funded housing programs.]

    Big Green tries for big payoff with Lame Duck bonanza

    [That’s too many coincidences, but nobody noticed last Monday when Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., pledged to move a gigantic “Frankenstein” package of 100-plus land grab bills from three Senate committees — and do it within two weeks.

    It was a kind of “spit-in-your-eye” reminder to the Tea Party that Democrats will still control the Senate come January.

    Democrat leaders of three committees — Commerce, Energy and Natural Resources, and Environment and Public Works — are scurrying to send Reid their list of bills that couldn’t pass by themselves, in hopes that stuffing them all into an omnibus lands bill will turn the trick.

    And a trick it is. Bill Wicker, spokesman for Bingaman, said with a straight face that the panel’s bills “are not controversial,” and “many were approved with no opposition.”


    Harry Reid’s own “Full Funding for the Land and Water Conservation Trust Fund” bill (S. 3663) would permanently and automatically provide $1 billion per year to buy private property and turn it into federal preserves.


    The seven private Pew Trusts and their public charity, $4.6 billion assets. The Wilderness Society, $55.4 million assets. Campaign for America’s Wilderness, $4.2 million assets. New Mexico Wilderness Alliance, $1.1 million revenue.

    It’s almost like asking, “Who owns the Democrats?”]

    Agenda 21

    The First Global Revolution:
    Blueprint for a new global order

    Eco-economic Warfare and the Planned
    Collapse of Western Civilization

    [..] Strong’s most influential role to date, however, has been as the Secretary-General of the 1992 UN Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED — aka the Earth Summit) in Rio de Janeiro. It was this conference that gave birth to the Earth Charter and Agenda 21, which would lay the groundwork for a completely managed global society run and managed under the auspices of the UN, under the guise of saving the environment.

    It is people such as Maurice Strong, Mikhail Gorbachev, Al Gore, and Ted Turner that are at the forefront of the UN’s environmental/depopulation agenda, at least at the visible/gofer level. The four are also members of, or have close connections to the Club of Rome. It is the Club of Rome that has been guiding the environmental movement since its creation at the Rockefellers’ estate in Bellagio, Italy in 1968. It’s aim is to reduce a large majority of the global population, as well as manufacture crisis through which the world can be “united” under a one world government, as was admitted in their 1991 publication, titled The First Global Revolution.]

    btw, all of this isn’t ‘going to happen’, it’s actually been happening
    right under our noses, eyes wide shut for quite a long time now..

    EarthFirst Mourning Loss of a Tree (ht Marsh in a previous thread)

    Mother Earth rights and rights of all beings in Copenhagen Treaty

    [The right to restorative justice

    Large scale restoration of degraded eco-systems (wetlands, forests, deserts etc) provides tangible, effective and true remedy on various fronts: the use of physical interventions to change biodiversity and biomass results in raised water tables, perennial agro-forestry practices, soil stability, natural fertility, hydrological regulation and the creation of natural carbon sinks. Correspondingly, such activities dramatically reduce biodiversity loss, fresh water stress, desertification, loss of soil fertility, poverty, disparity, population growth, conflict and climate change.

    In China, the principle of restorative justice was applied with enormous success to the restoration of the Loess Plateau (referred to as the Loess Plateau principles) – 35,000 square kilometers of previously desert land (roughly the size of France) was restored to green oasis within 8 years (see: http://www.earthshope.org). All that was learned from this project that had positive benefit has now become national policy, and all behaviours that were recognised to have negative input were banned.]

    Leftists Want to Grant Legal ‘Rights’ to Mother Earth

    [They write that, on December 22, 2009, the United Nations General Assembly “passed a resolution which put the issue of Mother Earth rights as an item on the UN agenda.”

    Bolivia’s proposal for Rights for Mother Earth is therefore about tackling these fundamental underlying issues [that is, the belief that humans are separate from, and superior to, nature and that more is better]. For centuries indigenous communities have warned that if human communities are to remain part of the Earth community they must behave as respectful members. We call our planet Pachamama, Mother Earth, because we know we cannot live without her. This understanding is supported not only by ancient spiritual traditions but also by contemporary science which continues to reveals the complex interdependence of life on earth. These perspectives are coming together in what is known as “Earth jurisprudence.”

    Stabilizing the climate at levels that allow human life to flourish will require human societies to meet our needs in a way that contributes to, rather than degrades, the health of the ecological communities which sustain us. This will require balancing human rights against the rights of all the other members of our planet. […]

    On 22 April 2009 President Evo Morales Ayma of Bolivia called on the General Assembly of the United Nations to develop a Universal Declaration of the Rights of Mother Earth. His proposal has received backing from nine countries of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America (ALBA). The recent UN General Assembly resolution approved in December now calls on all countries and the Secretary General to share their experiences and perspectives on how to create “harmony with nature.” In Bolivia, we hope to take this proposal forward in a People’s Assembly on climate change that we are organizing on Mother Earth Day, 22 April 2010.

    The authors explain: “So what would rights for nature look like? One of the most important implications is that it would enable legal systems to maintain vital ecological balances by balancing human rights against the rights of other members of the Earth community.”]
