The Global Warming Alarmists Get Progressively Sillier

Have you ever known someone who was already a little odd, but over time,: he kept getting stranger and stranger until you realized that: he was: certifiably nuts? If so, then you’ve probably gotten a strange sense of deja vu listening to the global warming wackos.

Over time they’ve been getting wackier and wackier. Now aside from their never consistent “We only have 1 year, 5 years, 10 years left to save the planet” proclamations they’ve gotten increasingly weird in their demands.

First they hated SUVS. Then they wanted to cripple whole economies. Now, they want to ban flights and even meat:

PEOPLE will need to turn vegetarian if the world is to conquer climate change, according to a leading authority on global warming.

Lord Stern said: “Meat is a wasteful use of water and creates a lot of greenhouse gases. It puts enormous pressure on the world’s resources. A vegetarian diet is better.”

Direct emissions of methane from cows and pigs is a significant source of greenhouse gases. Methane is 23 times more powerful than carbon dioxide as a global warming gas.

…Lord Stern, a former chief economist of the World Bank and now I. G. Patel Professor of Economics at the London School of Economics, warned that British taxpayers would need to contribute about pounds 3 billion a year by 2015 to help poor countries to cope with the inevitable impact of climate change.

He also issued a clear message to President Obama that he must attend the meeting in Copenhagen in person in order for an effective deal to be reached. US leadership, he said, was “desperately needed” to secure a deal.

He said that he was deeply concerned that popular opinion had so far failed to grasp the scale of the changes needed to address climate change, or of the importance of the UN meeting in Copenhagen from December 7 to December 18.

“I am not sure that people fully understand what we are talking about or the kind of changes that will be necessary,” he added.

…Lord Stern said that Copenhagen presented a unique opportunity for the world to break free from its catastrophic current trajectory. He said that the world needed to agree to halve global greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 to 25 gigatonnes a year from the current level of 50 gigatonnes.

UN figures suggest that meat production is responsible for about 18 per cent of global carbon emissions, including the destruction of forest land for cattle ranching and the production of animal feeds such as soy.

Lord Stern, who said that he was not a strict vegetarian himself, was speaking on the eve of an all-parliamentary debate on climate change.

That last line is my favorite: “Lord Stern, who said that he was not a strict vegetarian himself…”

Global warming is like some sort of crazy religion where its adherents want the state to force everyone else to live by the religious doctrine they don’t even believe in themselves.
