Letters: Global warming lucrative con

Dear Editor,

Here we go again with eco-alarmist abuse of taxes: another useless UN climate summit junket, this time in New York, Sept 23.

Nothing has ever been accomplished at these conferences, and there is another one next year in Paris.

Even OXFAM declared the 2012 Rio+20 Earth Summit extravaganza “a hoax that achieved nothing.”

Some 20 to 40,000 attendees from 178 countries participate in these rituals, mostly paid by us tax-suckers. Imagine the travel cost, never mind the carbon footprint on the planet they are all there to save.

Then there are reparation groups, meetings, and dozens of sub-committees with trumped up eco names, sustainability, biodiversity, endangered species, etc.

Ever wonder how many billions of dollars have been wasted on junkets that have occurred since green activists met in Rio 22 years ago? Consider Berlin, Geneva, Kyoto, Buenos Aires, Bonn, The Hague, Marrakesh, New Delhi, Milan, Montreal, Nairobi, Bali, Poznan, Copenhagen, Cancun, Durban, Qatar Doha, Rio+20, Warsaw, Stockholm, Abu Dabi, Lima, and now New York.

They really hit the mother-lode gravy train with the climate change/extreme weather brand names.  Can you picture them on the poolside, high-fiving with their pina coladas in hand, soaking up the sun laughing at how great global warming has been to them?

Global Warming has not happened as all of their computer models predicted. The alarmists are now having as many as two junkets per year to keep the promotional treadmill alive.

Their m.o. continues to be proof by repeated assertion: keep repeating the fallacy ad nauseum until people get tired of it, then claim it as fact.
