UN Flies In 5,000 People To Salt Lake To Complain About Fossil Fuels

Who in the end is paying for all these time-wasting, and – by their own definitions at least – polluting, freeloaders?

How does the United Nations convince people that they are super serious in their outrage about fossil fuels? How about flying 4,000 people from all over the world in fossil-fueled jet airplanes to isolated Salt Lake City to whine about it? Sounds like a good plan to the United Nations bureaucracy, which is sponsoring a sustainability and climate change conference this week in Salt Lake City.

The UN brags that up to 4,000 people are likely to attend, representing more 300 nongovernmental organizations (read, environmental activist groups) and more than 80 countries. There is no compelling agenda, no compelling actions items, and no expected meaningful outcome from the conference. It is simply an opportunity for leftist global activists to get together and express outrage about economic freedom and the existential global climate disruption that is the greatest crisis humanity has ever faced –…

    This year’s conference will center around Sustainability Goal 11, which focuses on building inclusive and sustainable communities.
    Inclusive? They did not include me. Sustainable? Glad to see that jet travel is now considered sustainable.

    More fake five-alarm crises from the IPCC

    Make sure to read about the 20,000-some activists, bureaucrats and politicians who will converge on Salt Lake City today for the latest UN climate change and sustainability conference.

    The Heartland Institute is holding a separate program nearby to explain why climate change is some 97% natural, not manmade; and why real-world evidence does not support IPCC claims about dangerously rising seas, increasingly violent storms or worsening droughts.

  5. Many years ago I went to a conference in Salt Lake City and also to conferences relatively nearby in Sun Valley and Idaho Falls. I would highly recommend going there to all genuine climate scientists who love their CO2 and want to increase their “carbon footprint”.

    Vaguely chartered meetings can often produce surprisingly destructive outcomes.
    The NGO culture is parasitism at its worse.
    Cutting off the government largesse that enables them is vital.

    my favorite take-away from that article is this face-palm inducing quote:

    “In 2016, Mann testified before the Democratic Platform Drafting Committee that actual data didn’t really matter because we could actually see climate change happening.”

    And there ya have it. Actual science and measurable empirical evidence no longer matter. Well, that’s true in the case of religion, but not science. I believe the classic moniker for people like Mann is charlatan.
