"Today we have reached the point where consumption and people's desire to consume has grown out of proportion," he told the Observer, also on Sunday. "The reality is that our lifestyles are unsustainable."Leading the WSJ to the obvious conclusion that the UN, by way of Mr. Pachauri is only interested in the science as a tool to push a global collectivist agenda:
In other words, if Mr. Pachauri is sanguine about the undermining of the IPCC's scientific methods, it's because his chief concern isn't the science at all. Rather, to judge by his recent public statements, he is more focused on an ideological economic agenda in which climate change is little more than a useful tool. Given the cover-ups exposed by the leaked emails, we'll take Mr. Pachauri's remarks as a welcome instance of full and voluntary disclosure.So, Copenhagen isn't about climate, but about 'spreading the wealth' around every dysfunctional regime in every hell-hole on Gods green earth, is it? Glad we got that sorted out.
[UPDATE001] From the unfinished business department: Last month, in the wake of the second Irish referendum, EURef did an item I'd been meaning to blog: The lust for "power". In that post there is a link to a document, the hyper-link text very aptly reading "end game", which is even more pertinent to what is being concocted in Copenhagen.
In light of van Rompuy's recent offhand comment about global governance, this is one read you may not want to miss. Click the link, print it out and make sure you sit down before you read it. Twenty years after the Berlin Wall came down, after the Velvet Revolution and the toppling of Ceausescu's the communists are on the verge of victory after all.
