And so the path to globalism marches on.
Former Secretary of State John Kerry will be the new climate envoy in a Biden administration, assuming the high probability he takes office in this still contested election.
Expect more blovating nonsense on climate change to satiate salivating crony capitalists. If COVID doesn’t kill you, climate change will! Got that, peasant?
Kerry is another career politician. He is the man who said peace in the Middle East was impossible. 3 peace deals later under a different administration and how stupid does he look? So should we believe his pontificating around climate change? Of course not.
Seriously, if politicians were surgeons there is no way you would ask them to operate on you given a glance at their win/loss ratio. Yet, Kerry will be afforded all of the media puff pieces on how he’ll be pivotal to saving us all despite reading geopolitics so poorly.
We await the grandiose statements about how close to doom we are. We await more nonsense around the Paris Accords – which grants China the ability to pollute as it pleases til 2030 – while the rest of us tip into the UN jar to misallocate resources for political favours.
You have to hand it to the political class. Await slower growth, higher electricity prices and more inefficiency which will end up in more debt fueled big government.
We’ll leave you with how the scientists believe in the science in a wonderful report compiled by the UN on its own processes. Donna Laframboise noted in her book, “The Delinquent Teenager” the following,
“In early 2010 the InterAcademy Council, an organization comprised of science bodies from around the world, took an historic step. It established a committee whose purpose was to investigate IPCC policies and procedures.
The committee posted a questionnaire on its website and invited interested parties to respond. Answers to those questionnaires were eventually made public after the names of the respondents had been removed. Those provided by IPCC insiders can be separated from the ones submitted by concerned citizens because the questionnaire begins by asking what role the respondent has played in the IPCC.
People with direct experience of this organization were remarkably frank in their feedback. According to them, scientific excellence isn’t the only reason individuals are invited to participate in the IPCC.
Remember, this is a UN body. It therefore cares about the same things other UN bodies care about. Things like diversity. Gender balance. Regional representation. The degree to which developing countries are represented compared to developed countries.
The collected answers to the questionnaire total 678 pages. As early as page 16, someone complains that:
“some of the lead authors…are clearly not qualified to be lead authors.”
Here are other direct quotes:
“There are far too many politically correct appointments, so that developing country scientists are appointed who have insufficient scientific competence to do anything useful. This is reasonable if it is regarded as a learning experience, but in my chapter…we had half of the [lead authors] who were not competent.” (p. 138)
“The whole process…[is] flawed by an excessive concern for geographical balance. All decisions are political before being scientific.” (p. 554)
“half of the authors are there for simply representing different parts of the world.” (p. 296)
Lest anyone think that people from less affluent countries were being unjustly stereotyped, the person whose comments appear on page 330 agrees:
“The team members from the developing countries (including myself) were made to feel welcome and accepted as part of the team. In reality we were out of our intellectual depth as meaningful contributors to the process.”
Remember we are told to believe the IPCC is the final word in climate change science. Look forward to shared misery.
