Including senior judges and lawyers from across the world, the three-day conference on Climate Change and the Law was staged in Londons Supreme Court. It was funded, inter alia, by the Supreme Court itself, the UK government and the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP).
The purpose of this strange get-together was outlined in a keynote speech (visible on YouTube) by Philippe Sands, a QC from Cherie Blairs Matrix Chambers and professor of law at University College, London. Since it is now unlikely that the world will agree in Paris to a legally binding treaty to limit the rise in global temperatures to no more than 2 degrees C from pre-industrial levels, his theme was that it is now time for the courts to step in, to enforce this as worldwide law.
The most important thing the courts could do, he said, was to hold a top-level finding of fact, to settle these scientific disputes once and for all: so that it could then be made illegal for any government, corporation (or presumably individual scientist) ever to question the agreed science again. Furthermore, he went on, once the scientific evidence thus has the force of binding international law, it could be used to compel all governments to make the emissions reductions that are needed, including the phasing out of fossil fuels, to halt global warming in its tracks.
The fact that it could be seriously proposed in the highest courtroom in the land that the law should now be used to suppress any further debate ... speaks volumes about the curious psychological state to which the great global warming scare has reduced so many of the prominent figures who today exercise power and influence over the life of our Western societies.

But under his breath he muttered, “It’s not getting warmer.”
Wow, so the science is lacking in every way, but because we believe anyway, it needs to be codified into LAW to FORCE OUR VIEWS ON YOU!
If the science cannot stand on it’s own merits, is it science?
This is Western Civilization collapses. The very idea behind this conclave is a rejection of every aspect of the Enlightenment, and they damn well know it.
This is medieval shit - straight up.
The more stuff changes, the more stuff stays the same. Global Warming is the new religion and Al Gore, soon to be replaced by Prince Obama, is the GW Pope.
How about we stop our governments giving money to the UN
Just watch Trump.
When he starts selling his ocean front property because of high water, I will pay attention.
OK!! Everybody pay attention!
Lesson for today:
1. The sun is 1,300,000 times as big as the earth.
2. The sun is a ball of fire that controls the climates of all its planets.
3. The earth is one of the suns planets.
4. The earth is a speck in comparison to the size of the sun.
5. Inhabitants of the earth are less than specks.
Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?
The global climate could stay about the same for the next hundred years, it could get warmer, or it could get colder. Most people in the developed world instinctively prefer that it be warmer - or about the same as it is now - rather than cooler, so “global warming” as proved a hard sell. And we were all taught as kids that the ultimate fate of the earth will be a deep freeze as the sun eventually cools, so anything that staves off that day is welcomed rather than feared.
What is needed right now is for a list of the attendees to be released. Identifying the conspirators involved is the first step to stripping them of any authority or office.
Through speck-al interest groups.
Global warming zealots remind me of those cult nut jobs who worship aliens and think that a ship is going to come down to take them to space/heaven so they put on their best sneakers and drink the poison Kool-Aid.
Even if an if age came these global warmist f**ktards would be trying to sacrifice people on top of the glacier rolling over New York City.
Very good! Bonus points!
He gazed up at the enormous face. Forty years it had taken him to learn what kind of smile was hidden beneath the dark moustache. O cruel, needless misunderstanding! O stubborn, self-willed exile from the loving breast! Two gin-scented tears trickled down the sides of his nose. But it was all right, everything was all right, the struggle was finished. He had won the victory over himself. He loved Big Brother.
They’ll succeed right after they carry out that “Round Pi to 3.0 law.”
