50,000 Poles Protest Against UN “Climate Change” Conference

I know, I know, you’re not hearing much about COP19 in Warsaw, Poland. Neither the American or international press are giving it much coverage. But lots of Polish people were happy to demonstrate against the Big Government notions of the United Nations

(CFACT) As more than 50,000 enthusiastic Poles gathered in downtown Warsaw on Monday to celebrate National Independence Day, with millions more watching on live television, CFACT president David Rothbard was invited to the stage to deliver an impassioned address celebrating freedom and warning against the dangerous and oppressive climate agenda of the UN.

Before what was one of the largest audiences to ever hear a speech denouncing UN global warming policies, Rothbard said he was honored to stand with the Poles in a “new battle for freedom against those who would use environmental and climate alarmism to steal away our liberties and give international bureaucrats control over our energy sources, our daily lives, our prosperity, and our national sovereignty.”

The address was carried live on national television and covered by a large number of international media outlets. It took place just as the UN was kicking off its COP19 climate conference a few kilometers away.

Rothbard noted that at last year’s COP meeting, UN climate chief Christiana Figueres said that what the UN was undertaking is “a complete economic transformation of the world.”

A big part of COP19 is supposed to be a push against the use of coal for energy. Poland uses quite a bit of coal, particularly since they have brutal winters. The Polish people also know “socialism” and authoritarian government when they see it, and that’s what “climate change” is really about, bigger and bigger Big Government with more and more control over the lives of individuals, families, and the private sector.
