UN Climate Change Conference Getaway in Cancun

In case you missed it, there’s the global environmental summit this week in Mexico, “UN Climate Change Conference in Cancun.” Al Jazeera has your requisite climate change alarmism update:

Over 15,000 participants traveled by fossil fuel-burning jets to a conference where no real progress is expected. The Mexican government refused to provide an estimated “carbon footprint” for the event, and naturally the fabulous resort location at Cancun was once a pristine tropical mangrove forest, now destroyed, along with miles of corral reefs that formally sustained ocean wildlife. And of course, this kind of bankrupt profligacy and hypocrisy hasn’t escaped public notice. See Doug Powers, “Climate Change Scheme in Jeopardy: Scramble on to Retool Messaging Effort“:

Those prayers to Mayan Moon Goddess Ixchel so far aren’t working:

The number of Americans who believe that global warming is a scientific fact has been dropping, and environmental groups and climate scientists who say the evidence for warming is clear are scratching their heads over this reversal and scrambling to find a new strategy.

Three years ago, former Vice President Al Gore won a Nobel Prize for publicizing the threat of climate change with his book and documentary film, An Inconvenient Truth. After that, scientists rejoiced, says Dan Lashof, director of the Climate Center at the Natural Resources Defense Council, an environmental group.

“We in the scientific community by and large said OK, the science debate is over, we are moving our efforts into what we are going to do about it. And that left the science debate in the public largely untended,” he says. “That has been recognized as a strategic error.”

A plot to redistribute the world’s wealth based on a movie produced by a guy who profits greatly from the solution to the “crisis” – why would anybody have a problem with that?

This sounds like the Democrats excuse going into the elections last month when it was clear their takeover ploys were being resoundingly rejected by the voting public: “It’s not that our plan is bad, it’s that we’re not communicating it well enough.”
