US to cut IPCC funding.
#1
Hi All,
Over at Jo Nova's blog on this thread,
http://joannenova.com.au/2009/07/01/ocea...mment-8150

You will no doubt be interested to read posts 135 through 140.

Linked to is this,
The Hill's Congress Blog.
Cease US funding of the IPCC
Excerpt,
" [color=blue]The IPCC: the intersection of your tax dollars, questionable science, and
an international organization in need of reform (Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer)

[color=blue]July 9th, 2009
I recently introduced legislation that would save American taxpayers $12.5 million this year and
millions more in the future by prohibiting the United States from contributing to the
United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC),
which is fraught with waste and is engaged in junk science. "
End of excerpt.

I'm hoping some here know more about this.
It would seem at last there is some good news.
The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed
(and hence clamorous to be led to safety)
by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

H. L. Mencken.

The hobgoblins have to be imaginary so that
"they" can offer their solutions, not THE solutions.

I think we should get out of and stop funding the UN in general.
“We do not believe any group of men adequate enough or wise enough to operate without scrutiny or without criticism. We know that the only way to avoid error is to detect it, that the only way to detect it is to be free to inquire. We know that in secrecy error undetected will flourish and subvert”.J Robert Oppenheimer.

Picking on Deamon in the first one and played with your words in the second one.

It is our attitude toward free thought and free expression that will determine our fate. There must be no limit on the range of temperate discussion, no limits on thought. No subject must be taboo. No censor must preside at our assemblies.

–William O. Douglas, U.S. Supreme Court Justice, 1952

Thanks SST, and I have played on your words as well in a response.  Wink

I do have a problem with subtly don't I.  ;D
But so do "they"...

He is just trying to add this wording to a bill that is going through and wanted to show off. The politicians need to maintain the funding for both the IPCC and the UN. I will stop there!

Well, for what it is worth, I would support our not supporting the IPCC.

I'd rather support the NIPCC.

I know you think you understand what you thought I said,

I will support your position of supporting the idea of not supporting the IPCC.

The problems with our participation in UN has been due to the kinds of leaders we've elected. If we get better leaders here, the UN can be a really great venue for advancing our interests in the world. Withdrawing from the UN would surely empower those who seek our collapse. Alan Keyes has a great perspective on this. He often joins in on America's Independent Party Thursday night town hall calls. Please feel welcome to join in -- all of good will are welcome to participate. 9 pm eastern start time: 218-339-2222 code 340794#

There's also a web-based conference room open where folks can type in links and whatnot for other participants. That's at http://www.hotconference.com/conference,58542473

right on, in glenn beck's book "An Inconvenient Book", he states the reasons why he believes the UN is ineffective and that dumping all that money into the UN is a real waste of resources.

I have that book too and he is not happy with environmentalists.He has a few sections in the book about what they say and calls it the darnedest things they say.

He also showed a map of many rich people who have moaned and groaned about a coming near future huge warming trend,and even wail about fast rising sea levels.Yet they buy expensive condos and homes in areas of Florida,that would easily go underwater if the sea level they cry so much about actually happens.

The UN needs to be relocated in Europe somewhere. It's the biggest scam in history.
