Oppose the Treaty of Copenhagen

When European politicians say “global warming,” they mean “Russia.”

And when American politicians say “global warming,” they mean “not enough bailouts.”

I oppose bailouts, and so I oppose the American justification for lying about global warming.

However, the European lie is a noble lie — it is a lie in favor of a greater good. Russia is a dangerous, warlike, central Asian power that regularly invades European democracies. We should oppose Russia.

But the Treaty of Copenhagen is not the best way to do it.

A better way to work against Russia is to support her neighbors.

In Europe, this means broadening the Alliance and deepening the Union.

In East Asia, this means encouraging the economic trends that are leading to a Chinese colonization of Outer Manchuria.

In Central Asia, this means winning in Afghanistan, and driving (pushing, airlifing, whatever) violent jihadists to Russia.

The Treaty of Copenhagen is fine for European countries. It allows them to take collective action against Russia. However, there are better ways for us to help than by signing on.

    “An infrastructure is already beginning to form, as entities like the New York Stock Exchange, J.P. Morgan Chase, Goldman Sachs, and the new Green Exchange are developing carbon trading platforms or expanding their environmental trading desks. There are nearly 100 funds already focused on green investments.”

    Interesting, her quote verbatim makes no mention of the whole purpose of cap and trade being to “simply throw money” at entities that were mentioned in the cartoon and those entities “only,” as the cartoon implies.

    Let’s also ignore that old saying that all politics are local when Gillibrand appeals to NY’s economic interest, and act of political pandering that is nothing new or interesting, but I assume that is enough to come to the conclusion that this is a smoking gun for conspiracy.

  2. Not necessarily only — useful idiots are always to be found.

    Interesting link between bailout states and bailout companies. Thanks for the link!

  3. “Interesting link between bailout states and bailout companies. Thanks for the link!”

    As you are spinning my words to make your own personal assertion, could you please clarify your assertion?

  4. Jeffrey,

    I had a hard time understanding your comment, but as it featured a comment by a Senator from a state that argues global warming legislation would be a bailout — and that would be operationalized through already bailed out financial forms — I thought you were agreeing with me.

    If you meant something else, let me know.
