In Doha, a big green rent-seeking machine
The Spectator ^ | 9 December 2012 | Andrew Montford

A couple of weeks ago the great global warming bandwagon coughed and spluttered to a halt in Doha, the latest stop on its never-ending world tour. The annual UN climate conference COP18 is no small affair. This is a bandwagon whose riders number in the thousands: motorcades of politicians, buses full of technocrats and policy wonks and jumbo-jets full of hippies travelling half way round the world, (ostensibly) to save the planet from the (allegedly) pressing problem of climate change

This is despite the fact that nobody seems able to point to any great problems caused by the modest warming of the globe at the end of the last century — with global flood and hurricane levels plumbing levels rarely seen in the historical record, global sea ice levels at around their long-term average, new research suggesting that claims of increased levels of drought have been overstated, oh yes, and a distinct absence of any warming — there has been precious little for the delegates to get alarmed about.

We must always bear in mind that, whatever their beliefs, tens of thousands of liberals earn their livings from the left-wing organizations fighting against a rational society.

The vast majority of those present in Doha depend for their livelihood on the perception of global warming as an existential threat. Their jobs are quite simply going to disappear if they come up with the wrong answer about climate change. Any statement that comes out of the UN climate machine — the UNFCC, the COPs, UNEP or the IPCC — has to be seen through this prism. When did you ever hear a bureaucracy announce that it was no longer required?

Just as Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton continue to rail against nonexistent racism in America, so, too, do armies of environmentalists, protectors of animal rights, and defenders of the climate. It's how they make their living.

They are only one paycheck away from sanity and must, therefore, every day fight against its return.

It’s really hard to believe these jokers. It’s been nearly 20 years since the Gore-Jones-Hansen-Mann quartet of global warming wannabe scientists predicted that global warming disaster was imminent ... like immediately ... even produced a movie showing the imminent results of the disaster. But then again, like ECAT cold fusion, probably didn’t get the right amount fairy dust in their equation.
