The airport was expecting the arrival of 140 additional private jets during the peak period of the global climate change convention. There’s not enough room for them all to park in Copenhagen, so they had to be flown to Sweden and then fly back for return
in from Germany and Sweden — driven hundreds of miles for the convenience of the international cartel of carbon cops.
But that’s not all. The airport was expecting the arrival of 140 additional private jets during the peak period of the global climate pelling us to live.
All told, the Telegraph reports, the 11-day convention will create a total of 41,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide — equal to the amount produced by a major city in the same time period. In other words, they’re not going to allow their reduction in, say, the next five years, the convention is expected to demand dramatic reductions — some say up to 80 percent — in the next 40 years. Of course, who will remember? Who will be around to accept failure?
But it’s not about results. It’s not even about a real crisis. It’s about feeling good about making demands on others and imposing draconian rules that are in and of themselves the real goal. It’s about creating a scenario in which people like Al Gore and Barack Obama can be honored for their courage and foresight without sacrificing anything themselves.
There’s a name for that. It’s hypocrisy with a capital H.
Welcome to the New World Order. This is the way it will be if these hypocrites ever do get their way and break down national sovereignty, defy the rule of law and undermine the will of the people to shape their own destiny.
We’re getting a glimpse of the future in Carbonhagen — it is not pretty and it is not hopeful.
