Global jockeying over global warming: "British Prime Minister Tony Blair's call for America to ratify the Kyoto Protocol this week tacitly acknowledges that Russian ratification, thought by then-Commissioner Wallstrom to have been secured by EU concessions on Russian World Trade Organization membership earlier this year, is no longer a serious prospect. Instead, European eyes are turning once again to the United States."


He shows what an honest Greenie looks like. The true belivers in global warming think that majority votes rather than the evidence decide whether or not global warming is man-made or natural. Prof. Bellamy goes by the evidence. A majority vote in Galileo's day would have "proved" that the earth is flat. Excerpt:

"Renowned British environmentalist David Bellamy will visit Australia this week to support anti-wind farm groups and expound his controversial views on global warming. In a trip funded by the television show "60 Minutes", Professor Bellamy will be the main speaker at an anti-wind farm meeting in Foster, South Gippsland, on Wednesday night.

But the visit has dismayed Australian conservationists because the high-profile botanist has aligned himself with a small, discredited group of scientists who dismiss the problem of climate change. Despite the now solid evidence that humans - by burning fossil fuels - largely caused global temperatures to rise 0.6 degrees last century, Professor Bellamy believes the warming is natural and that high levels of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide are good and will make plants grow better......

Professor Bellamy, admired in Australia for demonstrating against the Franklin River dam, told The Age from his home in Britain that he hoped the 60 Minutes program would stop the spread of wind farms - just as his two other 60 Minutes pieces had helped stop the dam and put more water back down the Snowy River.

In July Professor Bellamy infuriated his fellow environmentalists by writing an article called "Global Warming? What a load of poppycock!" in London's Daily Mail. "Hooray for global warming is what I say, and so do a lot of my fellow scientists," he wrote.

Nevertheless, Professor Bellamy's visit will bolster the anti-wind farm sentiment in South Gippsland, where the recently approved and controversial Bald Hills wind farm is an election issue in the marginal seat of McMillan. He told "The Age" that wind farms ruined coasts, required back-up from fossil fuels, intermittently produced small amounts of energy and "chop up birds and spook the bats and the poor little things die"...

Many people would like to be kind to others so Leftists exploit that with their nonsense about equality. Most people want a clean, green environment so Greenies exploit that by inventing all sorts of far-fetched threats to the environment. But for both, the real motive is to promote themselves as wiser and better than everyone else, truth regardless.
