Saudi Arabia Joins The Flat-Earthers On Climate Change

433350591_d23d1bd46f

Saudi Arabia considers an ambitious climate change agreement a threat to its oil trade, and historically it has tried to prevent countries from reaching an agreement. For years, the Saudis had full support  from the Bush administration, and Republicans in the US Congress to maintain the status quo, and to derail any real progress on the issue.

Today, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown came out swinging, heading an international chorus of condemnation against “flat-earth” climate change deniers who have tried to derail the Copenhagen UN sponsored conference by casting doubt on climate change and global warming. Sceptics in the UK, the US and Saudi Arabia are doing their best to capitalise on “climate-gate”. Putting their efforts to discredits the work of most scientists in the field by saying that human activities doesn’t cause rising temperatures. With the Copenhagen conference starting in a few days, Saudi Arabia and Republicans members of the US Congress have become political bed fellows on the issue, and are using the emails to claim that “the need for urgent action to cut carbon emissions has been undermined”.

“With only days to go before Copenhagen, we must not be distracted by the behind-the-times, anti-science, flat-earth climate sceptics. We know the science. We know what we must do,” forcefully said Prime Minister Gordon Brown. In a statement, UK’s environment secretary Ed Miliband was even more  blunt, and called climate change deniers “saboteurs”.

“The approach of the climate saboteurs is to misuse data and mislead people. The sceptics are playing politics with science in a dangerous and deceitful manner. There is no easy way out of tackling climate change despite what they would have us believe. The evidence is clear, and the time we have to act is short. To abandon this process now would lead to misery and catastrophe for millions,” said Ed Miliband.

For his part, Ed Markey, the co-authored of the US climate change bill, directly pointed the finger at Saudi Arabia and big oil companies. He warned against allowing America’s political agenda to be hijacked by the email affair.

“We can no longer allow our climate and energy policy to be hijacked by the government of Saudi Arabia, Exxon-Mobil, and the defenders of the fossil fuel status quo,” said Markey.

Worldwide, only about 4 percent of scientists claim, against all evidence,  that we are just experiencing a “natural cycle”, and that climate is not impacted by human activities. It would not be surprising to find out that a large majority of the 4 percent of “scientists”, in question, are on the secret pay-roll of oil companies, coal industry or even perhaps Saudi Arabia’s government.

    Wow, you make some really good points, too bad Al Gore just cancelled his speaking engagements in Copenhagen, because or he could use some current wether news as proof in his speech, like how both New Orleans, and Houston Texas Had snow today. Texas had 0.8 inches, and of snow today, which also happens to be the record for the earliest snow fall that Texas has ever had, beating even last years early snow fall record of december 10th. While this evidence does contradict “Global Warming,” it proves “Climate Change” which is apparently the new euphemism for seasons.

      Weather ? climate. Local patterns do not represent the global pattern as a whole, which has been scientifically proven to have been warming over the last 35 years, including the last 10 (despite attempts to confuse the truth).

    Ad hominem attacks by another believer in the big climate lie.

    “Worldwide, only about 4 percent of scientists claim, against all evidence, that we are just experiencing a “natural cycle”, and that climate is not impacted by human activities. It would not be surprising to find out that a large majority of the 4 percent of “scientists”, in question, are on the secret pay-roll of oil companies, coal industry or even perhaps Saudi Arabia’s government.”

    It would seem that the “author” of this hit piece has his fingers in the global warming tax hoax.

      I can assure you that I don’t, I can also assure you that you are a moron.

    Well, actually the believers in AGW are the ‘flat-earthers.’ ^___^

    Saudi Arabia has a conflicted interest here.

    What did you get your tainted data that state global warming caused by man? Oh, yeah, from the corrupted scientists of CRU and IPCC.

    There’s no man-made global warming — there is only Mann-made global warming!

    John Stossel would put it this, “Give me a break!”
