Oklahoma Republican Senator JIM INHOFE sent this “message of encouragement” to a COP 17 “sideshow” run by Climate Sceptics. (Monckton was there).
THIS IS TYPICAL OF THE BONE HEADED REASONING THAT MAKES ‘PROGRESS’ EXTREMELY HARD, BUT AT THE SAME TIME, MUST GIVE CAUSE FOR ‘PROGRESS’ TO BE RECOGNISED.
It’s time to “name and shame”, and the top of the pile is the U.S. Republican Party who, to a man (or woman) refuse to accept the science of Anthropogenic Global Warming. JIM INHOFE is the top of the pile …… Thank you for your intergenerational wishes Jim. He is the man that nominates Monckton to appear at Senate Climate Change hearings and start the whiteanting.
ANOTHER CHARACTER WHO NEEDS THE TORCHLIGHT TO EXPOSE HIS SILLOUHETTE IS BRITISH P.M. DAVID CAMERON.
Looking remarkably “compatible” with Tony Blair, Cameron has carried out the coup of the millenium by NOT replacing him after Gordon Brown’s election defeat. It was Blair and Brown who guided the U.K. to the edge of bankruptcy with the “LIGHT TOUCH” regulatory approach over the financial sector. But it was Cameron who claimed he would head, “the greenest government ever”
Very quick off the mark with Libya, Cameron’s determination to decide “in the national interest” has just caused a major ruckus in the E.U. Cameron is decidely opposed to a Financial Transactions Tax, (on behalf of the “City of London Square Mile”). The European Union is to introduce a “Robin Hood Tax” soon, but can only do that once the fiscal union is complete.
Cameron decided to act on behalf of the London Financial sector by using power of veto to prevent action. What this has actually done is “cast England adrift, floating somewhere in the north Atlantic” – effectively relegating the U.K. to a role “outside” fiscal union decision making with the other 26 E.U. members framing financial policy.
SMART MOVE DAVID, as one British Euro supporter Paddy Ashdowne commented. “In one night, 38 years of Foreign Policy is washed away.”
Olli Rehn E.U. vice president commented ; “If [Cameron’s] move was intended to prevent bankers and financial corporations in the [City of London] from being regulated, that is not going to happen. We must all draw lessons from the financial crisis, and that goes for the financial sector as well.”
