The Myths of Global Warming
Do you think they are lying? Of course they are!
In this article I will cover some excessive methods used by some of the G20 nations who are trying to push through their own agenda in Copenhagen at the expense of the underdeveloped countries. The total campaign that they have launched is backed up by false information and lies. If they get their way the ordinary person in the street will end up paying stealth taxes for a problem that is a natural occurrence. The main polluters are the governments themselves, the military, the Wall Street and London Bankers, Trans National Corporations, Oil and Mining Companies, the beef industry and Logging Companies etc. If the G20 governments are really serious about our carbon footprint contribution then there are many other measures that can be taken without taking a swipe at the underdeveloped countries.
If the G20 are allowed to get away with this fraud the third world nations will end up with massive debts for new technology, which the west will sell to them. It will make them no longer commercially competitive and by manipulation will lower trade barriers and tariffs. This will then allow the G20 countries to enter and take over their markets and natural resources. This action will not alleviate poverty, rather the contrary as those countries sink into more debt.
So lets again take a couple of examples from the G20 countries and see what they are really all about: Russia-Siberia's large forest, the taiga, accounts for
approximately one-fifth of the world's total forested land (more
than two million square miles) and contains about one-half of the
world's evergreen forest. Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Russian government, desperate for investment, has invited outside timber companies to log the taiga forest. Russian forests are disappearing at a rate of 12 million hectares a year. A large American wood products company, was contemplating a logging, processing, and replanting operation in a proposed wilderness area that contains pristine forests. I guess in most cases it is a case of out of sight out of mind.
The jungle of Borneo is another classic example especially the Indonesia sector (another G20 country) where logging has almost completely wiped out the major parts of this much need eco-system. If we look at the map below you will see the progressive decline in this area and if one could imagine the consequences of this very delicately balanced land. The area actually staggers the equator so the damage done by this selfish act of greed will cause many environmental and will change the weather patterns in this region.
I can distinctly remember massive burn off’s in this remote part of the world. The smoke pollution from this location frequently spread throughout the Malaysian Peninsular, Singapore and other parts of Indonesia. The smoke got totally out of hand and frequently caused the regional airports to close down and people had to wear masks if they ventured outside. The government has done little to stop the rape of these pristine jungles.
It is also interesting to note that Mexico is a member of the G20 and this conjures up images of Mexico City (one of the most polluted cities on earth). If they participate in Copenhagen next week they would have to close down the entire city to improve their contribution to our planet. Then we come to the good old US of A…..the highest energy user in the world that has ignored every suggested cut back and who also mass-produce weapons containing uranium components.
This is the biggest joke of all when they have the audacity to push for WMD control and are in the lead for pushing third world countries up against the wall on this “Global Warming” issue. The use these weapons extensively around the various theatres of war and what’s left they export to their allies. Why should we be worried about our carbon footprint when the US, UK, NATO and the IDF are contaminating our entire world with radioactive aerosols and killing millions?
Now for the good old Brits: One of BP's largest refineries in the USA exploded in 2005 causing 15 deaths. The fall-out from the accident continues to cloud BP's corporate image because of the mismanagement at the plant. In August, 2006, BP shut down oil operations in Prudhoe Bay, Alaska, due to corrosion in pipelines leading up to the Alaska Pipeline. BP had spilled over one million litres of oil in Alaska's North Slope. Then we have British mining company Vedanta who were bidding for a massive expansion to expand its controversial aluminium refinery in Lanjigarh, Orissa. The refinery occupies land belonging to the Majhi Kondh tribe, and lies at the foot of the Niyamgiri hills, home of the isolated Dongria Kondhs. The refinery has already been condemned by government officials for regularly breaching safety standards, and emitting ‘alarming’ pollution. Over a hundred families lost their homes to the refinery. Many more lost their farm land and with it their food-security and self sufficiency. British supermarkets are driving rapid destruction of the Amazon rainforest by using meat from farms responsible for illegal deforestation, according to a three-year investigation of the global trade in Brazilian cattle products.The report names Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Asda, Morrisons and Marks and Spencer among dozens of high-profile companies it says profit from products supplied by Brazilian farms on illegally deforested land. Much of the trade is in processed beef, used for pies, canned meat and frozen ready meals. The supermarkets insist it is not from the Amazon.
Then you have the US Oil Giant Chevron manipulating the PR firms in an extraordinary effort to evade responsibility for its massive toxic contamination of the Ecuadorian Amazon. A report stated: Chevron acquired Texaco. And evidence in the lawsuit, plaintiffs say, demonstrates that from 1964 to 1992 Texaco deliberately dumped billions of gallons of toxic waste into Amazon waterways, abandoned more than 900 unlined waste pits, burned millions of cubic meters of noxious gases, and spilled more than 17 million gallons of oil due to pipeline ruptures. How about that Mr President…….hey but don’t worry!…. you can get some small country in Africa to pay the bill when you have sold them a couple of nuclear power stations.
I could continue to write articles forever on the on going environmental damage but to what avail. The G20 believe they know what is best but we know that is not the case. The contribution made by the G20 countries in environmental damage would be impossible to summerise but one can say with great confidence that the third world countries cannot even be considered as polluters by comparison. The leaking of confidential documents from the University of East Anglia has now proven that data on Global Warming is deeply flawed and falsified. The next article will look at the earth’s natural recycling systems which will include land, sea, air and the changes in global temperatures.
