Eliminate growth in “Rich” countries!?!

So the UK Telegraph had a piece yesterday about the latest UN gathering to discuss “climate change”….the gathering conveniently located in Cancun during the cold season elsewhere.

Once again these so-called-’scientists’ claim that we’re on the bring of destroying the earth.  OK, even if you believe that, which I don’t, do you actually think that the UN can save the world???  I mean really, have you ever seen a more corrupt and ineffective organization this side of the Obama Administration?  Their recommendations?  Get this:  RATIONING for developed countries.  Yep, YOU are supposed to reduce YOUR standard of living….not every nation, just you.

In one paper Professor Kevin Anderson, Director of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, said the only way to reduce global emissions enough, while allowing the poor nations to continue to grow, is to halt economic growth in the rich world over the next twenty years.

This would mean a drastic change in lifestyles for many people in countries like Britain as everyone will have to buy less ‘carbon intensive’ goods and services such as long haul flights and fuel hungry cars.

Prof Anderson admitted it “would not be easy” to persuade people to reduce their consumption of goods

He said politicians should consider a rationing system similar to the one introduced during the last “time of crisis” in the 1930s and 40s.

This could mean a limit on electricity so people are forced to turn the heating down, turn off the lights and replace old electrical goods like huge fridges with more efficient models. Food that has travelled from abroad may be limited and goods that require a lot of energy to manufacture.

How do you like that folks?  Well I have an idea….why don’t these global warming alarmists who pretend to be scientists go first…..let them limit their own lifestyles to set a good example.  No more planes and automobiles to conferences in Cancun.  And let them be joined by all the guilty American Leftists who preach that WE need to change our lifestyles while living in mansions that consume FAR more energy than most average American homes.

Bet they won’t.  This isn’t about saving the world.  It is about controlling you…US!

Until they change their own ways, let them mind their own business.  Let them stay out of our lives and lifestyles.  Let them just leave us alone!
