The distortion of science for ideological purposes has a long history, and the results are generally ugly.
Nothing like a few facts to set things straight
, is there?
"We want the islands of Tuvalu, our nation, to exist permanently forever and not to be submerged underwater merely due to the selfishness and greed of the industrialised world. This is why we had proposed right from the outset, for the establishment of a legally binding framework to set targets and timeframes for renewable energy given the direct link between energy and climate change…Tuvalu therefore calls on the Summit to commit additional resources to implement, besides energy & climate change initiatives, other key focal partnership areas such as water & sanitation, transport & communications, health improvement, human resource development & capacity building, tourism & trade
".Address to World Summit on Sustainable Development by the Honourable Saufatu Sopoanga, the Prime Minister of Tuvalu .
I thought the link was between CO2 and Climate Change not energy.
And I was unaware that climate had anything to so with the motives of the industrialised world when the largest assumed production of "energy" (or is it Greeny Gases) will come from the un-industrialised world which Tuvalu is part of.
I especially like the dream of the Honourable Saufatu Sopoanga, the Prime Minister of Tuvalu -
"We want the islands of Tuvalu, our nation, to exist permanently forever".
In a geodynamically active world where areas once temperate become arctic, where the Greeks lived in Alexandria 8 metres under the sea in the Nile Delta, where Aceh was rendered asunder by a mere tsunami....
Stupid is, as stupid does.
