Global Warming- Climategate
It’s time to stop the climate scare stories
By Guest Column
India Prime Minister Narendra Modi sensibly refuses to attend yet another climate summit—this one called by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon in New York for September 23, under the auspices of the United Nations, which profits handsomely from the much-exaggerated climate scare.
Environmentalists have complained at Mr. Modi’s decision not to attend. They say rising atmospheric CO2 will cause droughts, melt Himalayan ice and poison lakes and waterways in the Indian subcontinent.Why China and India’s Leaders Won’t Be Attending the U.N. Climate Summit

As President Obama prepares to attend the UN Climate Summit in New York, it is worth noting that China’s President Xi and India’s Prime Minister Modi are not attending, in large part because officials see many international climate agreements as unfairly punishing developing countries. One senior Indian official noted that the summit “cannot be seen as a forum for negotiating a climate pact.”‘People’s Climate March’ freak show invades New York - Marxists, idiots, and hypocrites on parade
By Robert Laurie
New York is no stranger to infestation. If you’ve spent ten minutes in the city, the odds are you’ve had some kind of run in with its legendary “cockroach and rat problem.” Over the weekend, though, the Big Apple faced a new sort of vermin - namely, Marxists, ex-hippies, Gaia worshippers, and at least one hypocrite movie star.The Most Futile March Ever

Street marches today are to real politics what street mime is to Shakespeare. This was an ersatz event: no laws will change, no political balance will tip, no UN delegate will have a change of heart. The world will roll on as if this march had never happened. And the marchers would have emitted less carbon and done more good for the world if they had all stayed home and studied books on economics, politics, science, religion and law. Marches like this create an illusion of politics and an illusion of meaningful activity to fill the void of postmodern life; the tribal ritual matters more than the political result.—Walter Russell Mead, The American Interest, 21 September 2014
