Global Warming Faithful Preach the Climate Apocalypse


Pages: 1 2

Church World Service poutingly announced it was “disappointed” in the Durban summit while pledging to remain a “passionate advocate for a more just and adequate climate policy.” Before the Durban summit, the relief group had directly warned President Obama:  “It is particularly painful to know that the U.S. stood outside the international community in terms of not ratifying the Kyoto Protocol and that recent U.S. Administrations — including your own — have made various political calculations that are making it difficult to reach a sufficiently strong, binding agreement on emissions reductions.”

The Religious Left is always exasperated that U.S. administrations must heed their own people in crafting policies. And it prefers European governments operating in multi-party systems more susceptible to the demands of extreme environmental groups. The National Council of Churches, the titular parent group of Church World Service, also complained of U.S. failure to act on its favored scared scenarios.

“As people of faith, we believe the United States has a moral obligation to ensure a fair, ambitious and binding agreement is put in place as the Kyoto Protocol comes to an end and that any agreement must provide adaptation assistance for the most vulnerable around the world,” a bureaucrat of the financially troubled and failing NCC intoned.

Finances seem to have prevented the National Council of Churches from dispatching its own activist to the Durban summit. But the United Methodist Church, Episcopal Church, and Presbyterian Church (USA) did send concerned envoys. They also escorted “delegates from around the world to provide testimony to the impact that climate change is having on their communities and families.”

The international Religious Left watched and participated in the Durban summit with equal distress. In Geneva, the World Council of Churches had convened a special conference to explore the ethical imperative of climate change agreements. After Durban, a British Methodist relief official desperately urged a “tiny tax” on financial transactions as one “viable way” of funding international transfer payments in reparations for the ostensible havoc of global warming.  “Our overseas partners are already facing dangerous climate change – they simply cannot afford for us to delay reducing CO2 emissions or providing funding for climate mitigation until 2020,” implored the Methodist Relief and Development Fund.

No doubt the international Religious Left would like more than a “tiny” tax to subsidize its ideological commitments. Its exertions to overthrow capitalism through support of Marxist liberation in the 1970s and 1980s have long since collapsed. More subtle attempts of the last two decades to halt international economic growth through extremist environmental demands are now discredited.

Under what guise will the Religious Left invest its next crusade against international market economies?  Its slogans may shift, but the coercive, impoverishing goal remains constant.

    Nothing more than a normal cooling and warming cycle that happens every 3,000 years or so.

    • BS77

      Yes….funny how some 15-20,000 years ago there was ice two MILES thick sitting on top of what is now Chicago, Indiana etc etc…and it all melted away…..there was not one SUV, one coal fired plant, one jet, train or ship….and likely in time there will be another Ice Age…..the main controller of this process is the Solar Output. The main problem is the huge population explosion of the past 100 years…this is a real threat to the planet.

      • pat

        I guess the dinosaurs farted too much in those days too, melting away the ice covering Chicago!

    Science is now showing us the future and human activity has thrust the world into an unprecedented rate of climate change by a magnitude of thousands of times faster than it probably ever changed before in the 4 plus billion years this planet has been here, maybe besides forming or huge geological event, like colliding with massive asteroid. More than 97% of climate scientists believe it is a problem, and they've been studying it all their lives. If we don't act now to reduce carbon future generations will pay dearly.

    • Western Canadian

      No, you poor hysterical loon, lying con-artists have shown us the drivel you are wetting your pants over…. Legitimate scientists do NOT agree with the ignorance based swill you have offerexd up, and the 97% figure is a contrived fraud, accomplished by picking out dozens of responses to a survey, and ignoring the rest. Which is typical for the climate cons.

        That's true, the propaganda machine at Exxon disagrees with Global Warming. And that machine is quite large.

        • gregg

          I would think exxon benefits from rising restriction, regulation, bureaucracy and fees related to the great hoax

    • tarleton

      those twits cannot predict the weather in 3 weeks , nor the ''climate '' in 5 years AND YET they can predict the climate in 20 years ?….UTTER RUBBISH

    i think dis own thing must av cost all scientist who has contributed immensly time in finding solution to it; but i think d shifting of d earth surface- is just abt d END OF WORLD pls admit it, i know of dis b4. Tanks

  • Jim

    Church World Service, the $83 million dollar relief arm of the National Council of Churches that gets nearly half its funding from the U.S. government.

    What separation of Church and state? Call the ACLU ambulance

  • scum

    "A crusade to stymie global economic growth." Biased poppycock, Mark.

    • Stephen_Brady

      " Biased poppycock, Mark.", from Scum, who knows a little about bias …

  • NotaBene

    Actually poor countries suffer acutely from the prolonged droughts and floods which are provoked by global warming.

  • Rob

    Freaken morons! All you doubters go to this link, find your argument, then read the scientific explanation as to why it is flawed. READ FOOLS!!!

      yaaawn …another ''true believing dunce ''

  • Indioviejo

    It is a natural phenomenon, its evolutionary, and some species will disappear sooner than others, so if Global Warming threatens you, just embrace your extinction as part of an evolutionary process, be happy and quit pestering the rest of us If your purpose is to pester us, then prepare to die at our hands in the coming global street fight. Terrorism will bring civil war, and it just may be a free for all breakdown of law and order globally. When exhaustion sets in after 100 million dead, then survivors will pray for a strong leader who will not hesitate to execute without trial the maggots who initiated the coming bloodbath. It's just a thought.

  • WilliamJamesWard

    But the science is done on this there is no argument, nothing to conclude but
    invest in Al Gore's carbon credits, my Brooklyn Bridge securities and of course
    do not forget to tip…..LOL……….Which would you like to live on, payroll that
    you can spend or carbon credits you can stick where the sun don't shine.

    Stupid global harming nonsense pouted by the ignorant zombie left.life will be hoof on after 50 years like it has been going on for centuries and we’ll look back and remember the trash these alarmist tried to shove down our throat. By then, theywill have concocted a new alarmist rubbish like moon cracking : continued colonization of moon will break it into chunks that will crash into earth

    70s: global cooling
    80s/90s: global warming
    2000s: climate change

    Yeah, life goes on with or without your tree hugging nonsense
