Climate change cultist cries over coral and corn

In the most absurd posting of the day, enviromoonbat Bill McKibbin (a guy who spells Earth with two As) explains how he sobbed at a church in Copenhagen… because of coral. And corn. And rocks.

This afternoon I sobbed for an hour, and I’m still choking a little. I got to Copenhagen’s main Lutheran Cathedral just before the start of a special service designed to mark the conference underway for the next week. It was jammed, but I squeezed into a chair near the corner. The Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, gave the sermon; Desmond Tutu read the Psalm. Both were wonderful.

But my tears started before anyone said a word. As the service started, dozens choristers from around the world carried three things down the aisle and to the altar: pieces of dead coral bleached by hot ocean temperatures; stones uncovered by retreating glaciers; and small, shriveled ears of corn from drought-stricken parts of Africa. As I watched them go by, all I could think of was the people I’ve met in the last couple of years traveling the world: the people living in the valleys where those glaciers are disappearing, and the people downstream who have no backup plan for where their water is going to come from. The people who live on the islands surrounded by that coral, who depend on the reefs for the fish they eat, and to protect their homes from the waves. And the people, on every corner of the world, dealing with drought and flood, already unable to earn their daily bread in the places where their ancestors farmed for generations.

Those damned shriveled ears of corn. I’ve done everything I can think of, and millions of people around the world have joined us at in the most international campaign there ever was. But I just sat there thinking: It’s not enough. We didn’t do enough. I should have started earlier. People are dying already; people are sitting tonight in their small homes trying to figure out how they’re going to make the maize meal they have stretch far enough to fill the tummies of the kids sitting there waiting for dinner. And that’s with 390 parts per million CO2 in the atmosphere. The latest numbers from the computer jockeys at Climate Interactive—a collaboration of Sustainability Institute, Sloan School of Management at MIT, and Ventana Systems, is that if all the national plans now on the table were adopted the planet in 2100 would have an atmosphere with 770 parts per million CO2. What then for coral, for glaciers, for corn. I didn’t do enough.

So I guess we’re blaming poverty and world hunger on global warming now, too? I guess that follows the same line of thinking that got Al Gore his Nobel Peace Prize, too — since global warming apparently causes war as well. Nevermind that Climategate has pretty much cemented what so many have suspected for so long, that the whole global warming cult is a scam, one engineered to manipulate people into getting more money and more control for the leaders of the cult. With global warming, there’s all kinds of money to be made and control to be exerted over people’s lives. Just look at cap and trade.

As I read the idiotic post above, I couldn’t help but think of this video:

The sheer ridiculousness of all of it astounds me. First of all, how does McKibben even know that the “dried up ears of corn” actually came from Africa? That the stones were uncovered by glaciers? Couldn’t someone have just, I don’t know, picked up a few rocks off the ground and said they were now exposed even though they used to be hidden by glaciers? And I’m curious. If these glaciers have all melted, then why is there such drought in Africa? Where does all the water go? I thought that if the glaciers melted, the oceans would rise and then flood every continent. Apparently Africa is exempt from this “fact”.

In any case, even if manmade global warming was real, who in their right mind is actually going to cry over a friggin’ rock? Or cry over a tree? You’ve got to be a little batty to cry hysterically at the mere sight of coral and corn. For heaven’s sake, we have enough wussy men in the world. Man up!

Fortunately, most adults won’t be impressed by the whiny emotionalism. That effects girls around the age of fifteen — and those who have the mentality of a fifteen-year-old girl (i.e., liberals and enviromoonbats). Most adults want to see the facts, not some girly man crying over a few ears of corn. And unfortunately for global warming cultists, the facts aren’t backing them up anymore. NASA found that ocean temperatures are cooling, not warming. Climategate showed us that scientists are manipulating the data to make the public believe global warming is actually taking place, when it isn’t. But that won’t stop this guy from crying over a few ears of corn and a couple pieces of coral.

    I loved it when McKibben said “I didn’t do enough.” What a load of arrogant whaleshit! Even while pretending to care about everyone else, it’s still all about himself.

    On a side note, if the air force would loan one of those MOAB bombs out, it would be great to drop that in the middle of that group. Seriously, those people really need to get lives.

    Yeah that’s funny I know a place where there were plenty of ears of shriveled corn and valleys that are bone dry that once supported agriculture. Of communities and farmers who are ruined because there’s no more water to allow them to plant crops to feed their families and earn a living.

    Oh wait, that’s the SACRAMENTO/SAN JOAQUIN DELTA! And its going dry not because of global warming but because of sanctimonious eco-schmucks like this one who insisted that the water used to feed millions of people across the U.S. should be turned off to save a stupid 1 in long bottom dwelling fish.

    Ha, I read the beginning of the post, and immediately thought – he’s not a member of Earth First or something, is he?

    I first saw that video a while back, and it will probably always haunt what passes for my mind until the day I die . Every time I ponder the amazing achievements of our species, there’ll be people like that to bring me back down to Earth and remind me that many of my fellow humans are not only dumber than a plank, but also madder than a box of frogs, too.

    I wish that those people would just get out of my head or failing that, at least locate some bloody soap.

    I was hiking down a ravine once and found that some jerk had dumped huge rolls of barb wire from the road above, blocking my path. My choice was to go back however far I needed to cross a fast icy river, and then walk back and find a place to recross when I had maybe 1/2 hour of light left and then try to climb out in darkness, or to go forward over a mound of rusty barbed wire. The only way to survive was forward, so I sympathize with this McKibbin guy. I too have been moved to tears by pollution.

    I hate pollution. I feel a bit sad when I see (yet another) dead kangaroo on the road (no, I’m not kidding. Canberra has a large kangaroo population and a lot of “nature corridors” which enable them to come right into the city. I’ve even seen them on the lawns of the War Memorial), because being hit by a car can be a horrible way for a creature to die.

    But moved to tears? No way.

    This goober is crying about the trees BECAUSE there is a camera there to see him emote. If there wasn’t a camera around he would only be crying in front a couple of New Age Tourists on a ‘Forest Wisdom’ tour.
    I don’t see anybody crying over the loss of three foot centipedes from the dinosaur days.
    The Earth changes. Get Used to it.
    Volcanoes put out more greenhouse gas per day than we ever could.
    If the sea rises then most non drunkards will move out of the way. If the Ice melts off of Greenland and Antarctica, guess what? You can live there now, because the ice is gone. It’s warmer. Places like upper Canada and Siberia will welcome the influx of new taxpayers.
    I think there is an as yet unnamed syndrome afflicting liberals, causing them to believe that nothing can happen in the universe that is not somehow directly connected to them.
    This allows haughty displays of Earthy Piety, thus condemning other ‘less actualized’ humans by comparison, and the enjoyment of occupying the apparent moral high ground in arguments fueled by bong loads and Lattes.
