From RTE

On the second day of his visit to Ireland, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has urged Ireland to “to align its climate efforts with its admirable engagement on hunger”.

Speaking at Dublin Castle tonight at an event marking the 70th anniversary of the United Nations as well as Ireland’s 60th year as a UN member.

He praised Ireland for its overseas aid saying that while Irish unemployment rose, Ireland worked hard to provide aid to other countries and “in going through your own period of austerity you refused to inflict it on others”.

However, Mr Ban said:

One cannot be a leader on hunger, without also being a leader on climate change.

  1. What? The mouth is moving but he’s not saying anything – this is just empty rhetoric!

    What I would really love to obtain is a book – copyright around 2065 – entitle “The Global Warming scam and how it ended”.

    We all know it’s dead – the only thing that’s still not know is how society resolved the issue of setting higher and higher taxes on a substance that had absolutely no recognisable effect. I won’t say “it can’t go on” … because it has gone on and on and on. But it’s got to come to some resolution sometime hasn’t it?

  2. The high priest, exhorting the workers to work ever harder. You would think the human race would be immune to it by now–but no. The only reasonable response would be to throw him into the sea, and then tell him he’s all wet (adding insult to injury).

    Ireland’s major industry is dairy farming output is milk cheese and meat, all help to reduce hunger.

    A cows digestive system produces vast amounts of ‘greenhouse’ gases.

    So Ireland will have to decimate its dairy industry to achieve proposed ‘carbon reduction targets’.

    So Ireland will now help the world to starve and drive farmers to ruin by following the advice of Ban Ki-moon

  4. oldbrew says:

    Ireland and everywhere else will also have to abandon inorganic fertilizers, all farm machinery and most food distribution systems if they believe Moon’s climate claims . Might as well pack up now😉

    Or, recognise a pig in a poke when it’s put before them.

  5. I have no idea who writes Ki-moon’s speeches for him (nor who writes the speeches for his equal tosser of word-salads, the UNEP’s head honcho, Achim Steiner)

    But then, over the years, I have come to expect no less (nor, indeed, no more) from one who gives voice (as Ki-moon indisputably did) to such inanities as:

    “[…] The pursuit of happiness is serious business. Happiness for the entire human family is one of the main goals of the United Nations.” [my bold -hro]

    Tell that to the ever-increasing flood of fleeing refugees throughout the UN’s bailiwicks in the Middle East.

    I knew Moon would be an empty suit when he was first appointed, but he has exceeded all expectations for vapidity.

    Yeah for UKIP!

    EXCLUSIVE: EU CHIEFS ATTEMPT TO STOP TTIP DEBATE, ‘CRACK IN CORPORATIST STITCH-UP’ PROCLAIMS FARAGE

    http://www.breitbart.com/london/2015/06/09/exclusive-eu-chiefs-attempt-to-stop-ttip-debate-crack-in-corporatist-stitch-up-proclaims-farage/

    London, United Kingdom – Breitbart London has learned that the President of the European Parliament Martin Schulz is to make an unprecedented attempt to stop the debate surrounding the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) in the European Parliament in Strasbourg tomorrow.

    We can exclusively report that in addition to the vote being cancelled, as noted several hours ago, the European Union’s chief bureaucrats are in meltdown following major public backlash against what has been described as a “major corporatist stitch-up”.

    Up until this month it appeared that the TTIP deal, lauded by U.S. President Barack Obama, was on course to pave the way for huge, corporate deals under the guise of “free trade” across the United States and the European Union…

    …“They’re in blind panic. I’ve never seen anything like it. Finally there seems to be a crack in the corporatist stitch up. Even the Labour Party, after years of having backed this thing, seem to now realise what they’ve done, what a big, corporatist deal they’ve been backing.”…
