What would China do?


If you remember the post a few days back showing Al Gore being confronted in a bookstore, you may remember the ‘confrontee’ screaming out that the COP15 climate change crap has, rather than having much to do about the environment, and not just on Obama’s own admission, a security issue, but also rather a lot to do about eugenics, that favourite play toy of the Left. And sure, we’ve already heard about eco-ratbags suggesting governments ‘put something in the water’.

Well, Canada’s Financial Post, in an editorial no less, has made their stand… for a global one-child policy.

A planetary law, such as China’s one-child policy, is the only way to reverse the disastrous global birthrate currently, which is one million births every four days.

Interesting since it ain’t the rich countries having that much of a problem with exploding populations. In fact, two of the richest nations on the planet, Japan and Germany are actually experiencing negative population growth.  It’s the poor countries that are much more likely to have huge population growth. Look at that list in the link above. Take the top 30. It’s only poor and/or Muslim countries experiencing growth of about 2.5 or higher.

The FP’s stance is idiotic at best, and down right evil at worst. And how the hell would you police such a policy except in the developed world? That’d be a world which isn’t having a problem with exploding populations – no pun intended re countries experiencing problems re suicide bombers…

But the FP is trying to do what China would do, and is taking China’s lead.

COPENHAGEN: Population and climate change are intertwined but the population issue has remained a blind spot when countries discuss ways to mitigate climate change and slow down global warming, according to Zhao Baige, vice-minister of National Population and Family Planning Commission of China (NPFPC) .

“Dealing with climate change is not simply an issue of CO2 emission reduction but a comprehensive challenge involving political, economic, social, cultural and ecological issues, and the population concern fits right into the picture,” said Zhao, who is a member of the Chinese government delegation.

So we have a bunch of lefties taking the lead off a bunch of Commies? Gee, what could go wrong with that in a free, democratic society?

Tim Wilson in Copenhagen


It’s up to 33, 000 delegates. NGOs outnumber government reps (even with KRudd’s help) 2:1. China and India (go figure) are most unhappy with a leaked draft text.

As the Conference continues a walkout appears more and more likely. If flexibility isn’t adopted by developed countries toward the obligations on developing countries it is likely they will start decrying eco-imperialism and a lot of people will have emitted a lot of carbon by flying a long way for nothing.

“If the event weren’t such a farce, it’d almost be funny.”

Read the whole enchilada. Meanwhile, Tim is blogging over at the ABC.

Copenhagen schedule


A silver lining…

On Tuesday and Wednesday, Monckton, Fred Singer, and Ian Plimer will be speaking. Bad news is that they’re speaking right at the beginning and could well be forgotten by the end. Good news is that nothing much is likely to come out of this, with no actual agreements until June next year or even until 2011.

Let’s hope “our boys” get a fair hearing and their message gets through over, say, Desmond Tutu’s call for cash.

Schedule.

And with trepidation, a link to an article quoting Lord Monckton. Do read the whole enchilada, but since the following has been largely passed over, here’s an excerpt reminding us what this AGW crock means for our food.

Speaking about replacing one third of agricultural land which grows food to be used for growing bio-fuels instead, Christopher Monckton reminded that it has led to double food price surge over just one year.

“If we have to pay twice as much for our food – it’s inconvenient. If you are in a poor country – that difference of a 100% in the price of your food is the difference between life and death,” he warns.

More.

UPDATE

In related news, have you heard about the steel cages being set up for any protesters who are arrested?

Powerline asks: What do they think we are, anarchists?

Will Lord Monckton throw Molotov cocktails, or Pat Michaels smash bank windows?
