November 9, 2017 - A coalition of left-wing NGOs is circulating a petition at the UN climate talks in Bonn demanding the UN kick the United States delegation out of the conference!
The UN was founded under the principle that all nations would receive a seat at its table, free to participate, regardless of who they are.
For this reason, you'll often see communist dictatorships sitting alongside kingdoms and democratically elected republics at these UN meetings.
Yet the election of President Trump went beyond the pale?
David Wojick reports at CFACT.org: "Spearheading the petition drive is the Pan African Climate Justice Alliance (PACJA). According to their website, they are the largest Civil Society platform in climate change and sustainable development, with a membership of more than 1000 organizations and networks."
The United States is a full member of the UN process, and for the next few years at least, the Paris climate agreement as well.
The rule of law doesn't matter to left-wing NGOs, but whom exactly do they think pays for this shindig?
Fun facts: The U.S. pays for 22% of the UN budget and 20% of the UN climate process. After Africa gets done throwing us out, are they ready to pick up the tab?
In a more constructive vein, CFACT is partnering with EIKE, the European Institute for Climate and Energy, to co-sponsor a conference which opens today in Dusseldorf, Germany. The conference will feature CFACT’s Marc Morano, Craig Rucker and many other prominent science and policy experts including Nir Shaviv, Henrik Svensmark, Francois Gervais, Horst Lüdecke, Lord Christopher Monckton and many more.
CFACT is particularly grateful for the hard work and talent of longtime friends Dr. Holger Thuss, Wolfgang Mueller and Michael Limburg of EIKE who put together this important conference.
I'm writing from the conference, which opened minutes ago, where CFACT's Marc Morano is speaking right now. He's taking the crowd through the history of the climate scare, from A to Z, and declared President Trump exiting the Paris agreement to be a cause for celebration.
An interesting element of this year's UN conference is that it is chaired by the island nation of Fiji, though hosted by Germany. The conceit is that island nations are vanishing. One fascinating topic in our conference in Dusseldorf will be a report in just a few hours by Dr. Nils Axel Morner, a world renowned expert on sea level, who has just returned with a report from Fiji. We're told that aside from some local erosion, he found no meaningful sea level rise. This would be consistent with the sea level data we've frequently reported.
The facts remain overwhelmingly inconvenient for the global warming narrative.
We'll take rational exposition of the facts with EIKE over hysterical efforts by left-wing NGOs to censor the facts any time.
