|Lord Christopher Monckton vs John Abraham|
Junk Science occurs when science is politicized and facts and risks are exaggerated, distorted and misrepresented.
H/t What's Up With That
The appropriate intellectual response to that challenge -- finding a way to balance human consumption with responsible environmental stewardship -- is complicated and difficult. It will require developing new technologies, balancing carbon-abatement programs against other (more cost-effective) life-saving projects such as disease-prevention, and -- yes -- possibly increasing the economic cost of carbon-fuel usage through some form of direct or indirect taxation. -Johnathan Kay

Where are these shining examples of success: Europe, U.S (California) have diverted Billions on so called Green Jobs, Green Energy, Cap & Trade Exchanges, Carbon Taxes which of these jurisdictions have in FACT reduced the use of carbon (fossil based) products?
Instead of building and providing MORE generation that may not needed in Canada or sustainable without significant taxpayer subsidy, why not champion more conservation and improvements in the transmission of surplus capacity? Why divert billions to Giant Fans in rural Ontario if it has NOT worked in Europe or California in reducing the use of Carbon fossil fuels?
Why are those Black Knights unable to balance their needs for more power in large cities to the surrounding rural communities? Why do these large cities demonstrate NIMBY? Do these Black Knights actually reduce their own carbon footprints through private jets, mansions and financial interests? The delegates to the Copenhagen climate summit will produce enough carbon emissions to fill 10,000 Olympic swimming pools, according to figures commissioned by the host Denmark. Reuters is reporting that the massive carbon footprint is equivalent to the impact generated by half a million Ethiopians in a single year.
In the spirit of conservation, cancel the hotels, security, jets to next conference in Cancun, teleconference those wonderful ideas on how to reduce your carbon footprint and increase taxes directly and indirectly.
The decision to hold an international summit on global warming in a beach resort area known for its ability to lure U.S. college students during spring break may raise questions from some, but Alday said it will underscore the area's resort appeal.
Here is a link at those partners who will be boarding more jets for a beach resort. It must be a burden for so many champions of CAGW to spend so much time at these conferences.
"We want to highlight Cancun as a tourist destination," he said. "After the difficult year we had last year, the recovery of the tourism industry is well underway, and I think this will help cement that recovery and show one of the nicest places of our country."
Are these Black Knights on the ground floor for financial gain in Cap & Trade Exchanges? Anyone remember the fun the media had with the auto executives arriving on those corporate jets? Did the U.N. or other bodies in government sell off all their jets?
How do these Black Knights of CAGW force sovereign states like China, India or Iran to stop their increasing use of fossil fuels through taxation of Canadian citizens? Anyone notice how many coal burning plants are being built in China? If the G7 requires the use of dirty coal, natural gas how do we pay or punish China, Brazil, Russia to exclude their own reserves of coal or natural gas?
In the four years from 2004 - 2008 did the U.S., China or Europe import, export or use less oil ? What makes the Black Knights in Canada think increases direct, indirect taxes, eco-fees on the middle class to pay more for electricity, dish soap, heating oil going to do? Are the Black Knights in Canada going to change how the Chinese, Americans drive, heat their homes and wash their dishes?
Which camp is using the term denialism more accurately when you ignore the consumption and strategic investments in securing fossil resources by the worlds countries with the largest military?
Has the world been successful in stopping nuclear proliferation and genocide? How do you impose an indirect tax on those countries?
Which camp is creating a blacklist to keep the data of their science secret?
