This is how desperate they have become. The interim director of the CRU at East Anglia University (interim because the director was asked to step aside while he’s being investigated for manipulating data) told CNN John Roberts yesterday that while the Climategate e-mails have proved troublesome, they do not prove that man is not causing global warming.
I wouldn’t expect him to say anything else. But then he dropped this whopper. He thinks skeptics should go about proving a negative. Prove man isn’t causing global warming. It starts with John Roberts detailing the global warming list of disasters.
And while scientists go about proving the negative, the march toward global reparations continues.
Clause after complicated clause sets out the requirement that developed countries such as Australia pay their “adaptation debt” to developing countries. Clause 33 on page 39 says that by 2020 the scale of financial flows to support adaptation in developing countries must be at least $US67 billion ($73bn), or in the range of $US70bn to $US140bn a year.
How developed countries will pay is far from clear.
And the march continues toward global control of all activity .
The Environmental Protection Agency took a major step Monday toward regulating greenhouses gases, concluding that climate changing pollution threatens the public health and the environment.
The announcement came as the Obama administration looked to boost its arguments at an international climate conference that the United States is aggressively taking actions to combat global warming, even though Congress has yet to act on climate legislation. The conference opened Monday in Copenhagen.
The EPA said that the scientific evidence surrounding climate change clearly shows that greenhouse gases “threaten the public health and welfare of the American people” and that the pollutants — mainly carbon dioxide from burning fossil fuels — should be regulated under the Clean Air Act.
“These long-overdue findings cement 2009’s place in history as the year when the United States government began addressing the challenge of greenhouse-gas pollution,” said EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson at news conference.
Meanwhile chew on this post you GW zealots, if you dare. I know, faith shaking. But better to have your faith shaken, then your wallets.
