Useless Buggers, or

Why the UN should be relocated to a domed island and cut off from the rest of the planet

In this latest debacle of the Climate ChangeTM folly crisis we now learn that even if Mother Earth's oceans don't boil away into outer space we can blame good old CC for all sorts of human strife.

Ignoring all historic and paleontologic records of the fact that climate change is the constant, that even in the last two millenia there have been greater warmings and coolings and shiftings of rainfall, WE MUST DO SOMETHING AND RIGHT QUICK OR PEOPLE WILL SUFFER.

Which ignores another constant--people have been suffering, starving and migrating all throughout history.

Climate change a new factor in global tensions: EU

March 7, 2008
The risks of climate change have turned from a threat to reality impacting the conflict in Darfur, migration from flood-prone Bangladesh and hopes for stability in the Middle East, according to a new EU report.

The EU's opinion of us
Africa is adjudged to be particularly vulnerable.

"Already today climate change is having a major impact on the conflict in and around Darfur," it states.
Oh... So it's not Arab enslavement and butchery. It's the climate, stupid.
The UN predicts there will be millions of "environmental migrants" by 2020 which may in turn "increase conflicts in transit and destination areas," says the report.
"transit and destination areas". Where the citizens of such areas are not exactly thrilled that they get to support people with limited employment skills, can't speak the native language and cannot help but to be a financial burden.

I get it now. Millions are fleeing corruption-rife regimes in which human life is devalued and where gainful employment is nigh on impossible because of the climate.


"CLIMATE" has another definition at least according to the Oxford dictionary:
• the prevailing trend of public opinion or of another aspect of public life : the current economic climate.
Let us take a moment and imagine a paradigm shift in world leadership away from the dictators of third world hellholes and hapless first world pseudo-intellectuals. Let us take a moment and focus on a climate change that actually could be accomplished by mankind--to change the climate of corruption that is the single common and inescapable factor for the third world.





Alas, no. It is much easier to focus on imaginary anthropomorphic global warming and how the population of the earth can be manipulated into believing the necessity of massive economic redistribution and acceptance of mass migrations than on changing leadership imperatives.
