The World of Penny Wong.
Penny Wong, the Australian Labour Government's Minister for the Environment and Water, faces off UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon, at the Bali Climate Change Conference. Note Ban is carrying a ceremonial baseball bat.
There’s an old book called ‘The World of Suzie Wong’ that was made into a film in 1961, starring William Holden as an improbable artist and the delicious Nancy Kwan as a prostitute called well, Suzie Wong. I liked both the book and the film, being both a Bill Holden, Nancy Kwan fan and a nostalgic cheese aficionado. Suzie is the classic Asian doll, reluctant mattress athlete with a corny heart a' gold and big dreams, plus a secret baby looked after by her Amah.
"You're pregnant! Amah!"
Suzie lived in an unstable and exploitive environment filled with threats and swirling demons both real and imagined. In short, she lived in a snake pit and believed in a lot of superstitious drivel, bein’ Chinese an’ all. I wonder how the bilge of Feng Shui works with the direction of sexual positions?
“No! Head must face wash basin or very bad luck for Auntie’s psoriasis!”
Now there’s a funny contradiction for believers in superstitions, magic, fate, general dark past voodoo, the New Age Return of the Son of the Middle Ages piffle, and other howl at the moon contortionism. The practitioners simultaneously believe that there are malevolent and imaginary forces at work beyond their understanding, while oddly believing they can also assuage or control these booger beings by repetitive, convoluted and pointless behaviour.
I’d never call Penny Wong a simple minded tart. Suzie Wong was highly pragmatic and pretty smart in her own way. While Suzie probably did swallow the glow from warm balls, she was not stupid and would never have swallowed completely the populist and total junk of Global Warming. Leave that to 17 year old WTO arsonist/vandals and dull, mediocre and modishly Left politicians.
By her own choice, Wong has put herself in the powerful position of a major government Minister. And she’s 100% into the swingin', money churnin' bogus Climate Change scene in Bali this week. She’s entirely responsible for this portfolio but sadly, the main topic under intense focus is, er, rubbish.
It’s an ironic thing that the current environment is about the environment, but not the actual one as it is, but an imaginary and entirely predictive one, filled with twisting malevolent monsters of the elements, all just around the corner they say. And any weather extremis, which is a wholly natural part of the world’s weather system, is now seen with wide eyes, as some kind of wild portent. Bollocks.
Global Warming causes both floods and droughts in Oz, apparently. Nothing can now happen without being blamed on GW or GB. George Bush, with an IQ of 125 is apparently unintelligent, yet he can control the weather! The Right manipulates the world again! Er, no.
What is merely an oppressive and orthodoxy driven movement, has evolved almost entirely due to the momentum given it by the fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of Soviet Communism. It’s grown due to the vampiric desire of Left and Radical ideology fanatics to find legitimacy via this relatively new and profoundly phony environmental angle. It fits perfectly any activists bloated self righteousness. And it’s about the money and status available to those who jump on the latest and maybe greatest, in a long line of gravy trains.
Ah, weather and climate experts…the same people who can’t always get tomorrows weather right, can now apparently predict not just next weeks conditions, but what the weather will be like in 10, 20 or even a 100 years time. Sure they can. Plus folks, they can even control it! Er, riiight. The plans of mice and weathermen.
So if GW is already a happenin’, what should the temperature be right now? Hotter or cooler, and by how many degrees? Nobody knows because there is exactly zero reliable measurement in any of it.
Every few weeks there's another dire warning in the news, until one reads the source of the latest brass sounds of doom, and it’s nearly always the same few sources. The IPCC or similiar group, or a regularly sighted professional celebrity environmentalist and er, maybe another Al Gore brainwave or something else stupid via his vast and unquestioning fan club.
The IPCC is a highly political body of 2,000 scientists out of the millions worldwide. There are more than a few who have asked for their names to be removed from said body due to its bending of science to politics.
Hey, with the Sun due to expand into a vast fiery ball that will vaporise earth, and we may only have a 3 to 6 billion year window, I’d like to know what the government is doing about it.
The GW mass hypnosis is like astrology. You just gotta believe man, and it’s in the newspapers everyday! And they don’t really mention that astrology is unfounded gibberish. It’s presented the same as GW is; we all assume and agree that hey, it’s all true. No money back guarantees with either of these bunko artist scams though, eh? GW will slowly fade over the years as nothing happens and the money eventually dries up.
Paul Erlich never did do a follow up to his fraudulent fortune telling book of 1968, “The Population Bomb”. So, it’s like a scene from Soylent Green at your apartment block, huh? Guess not. No follow up to the discredited ‘Silent Spring’ book of 1961 either. Its incompetence meant the banning of DDT, the resulting return of malaria and the deaths of perhaps 60 million people. No apology, retraction and no change of policy.
This year a Ugandan Government Minister pleaded with the world to lift the ban on DDT to save his people. Good luck mate, with the Western Bastards of Unrepentent Moral Vanity and their massive free floating ego's.
No, just more of the same with ‘The Return of The Son of Green Eco Death Imperialism’ courtesy of the same old Left with new Climate Change clothes, this time using full tilt nutso Nazi style earth worship. Many activists are very eager to cull the human population literally, and have produced several hideous best sellers on how the earth would be better off without any people on it, and how to do it. The following is from Mark Steyn:
"Oxford University Press has published a book by Professor David Benatar of the University of Cape Town called Better Never To Have Been: The Harm Of Coming Into Existence. The author "argues for the 'anti-natal' view — that it is always wrong to have children…
Anti-natalism also implies that it would be better if humanity became extinct." As does Alan Weisman's The World Without Us — which Publishers Weekly hails as "an enthralling tour of the world… anticipating, often poetically, what a planet without us would be like." It's a good thing it "anticipates" it poetically, because, once it happens, there will be no more poetry.
Lest you think the above are "extremists," consider how deeply invested the "mainstream" is in a total fiction. At the recent climate jamboree in Bali, the Reverend Al Gore told the assembled faithful: "My own country the United States is principally responsible for obstructing progress here." Really? The American Thinker's website ran the numbers. In the seven years between the signing of Kyoto in 1997 and 2004, here's what happened:
• Emissions worldwide increased 18.0%.
• Emissions from countries that signed the treaty increased 21.1%.
• Emissions from non-signers increased 10.0%.
• Emissions from the U.S. increased 6.6%.
It's hard not to conclude a form of mental illness has gripped the world's elites. If you're one of that dwindling band of westerners who'll be celebrating the birth of a child, "homeless" or otherwise, next week, make the most of it. A year or two on, and the eco-professors will propose banning nativity scenes because they set a bad example".
Also see Andrew Bolt in 'The Herald Sun' for Wednesday 19 December, with his excellent collection of even more local Aussie Enviro Nihilist Loons.
P.J.O'Rourke said that the drivel of the standard phrase, "There are too many people!" basically boils down to, "Too many of you, just enough of me!"
These Enviro Freaks are mad and anti human earth worshippers, that are speeding towards their idiot 'Super Dream' of a nihilist paradise, sans any actual nihilists. They're beyond Fascism really, and into a Greens kind of Uber Year Zero. They hate people for the simple reason that real people spoil an eco-activists sense of purity in ideology.
They can’t see the world for the trees.
These are our leaders who gather with the Zero Quality Control Freak Circus of the UN. The UN, will fine us millions if we overstep our carbon emissions apparently. No fines for the endless crimes of much of the disgusting dysfunctional Narco-gangster states, Islamist sand dunes, Totalitarian criminal implosions, terrorist exporting piles, child molesting Diplomat suppliers and Jew hating sewers that make up a large proportion of the UN.
Yep, UNdemocratic, UNintelligent, UNrepresentative, UNimportant, UNtrustworthy, UNproductive, UNrealistic, UNcaring, UNaccountable, UNqualified and UNbearable. I’ve always felt that there is a first and last letter missing. What about Corrupt Useless Nasty Trash?
How do you improve the UN? Cut off the top ten floors.
But then, it makes no sense, because the female reproductive Wurlitzer makes perfect, productive and natural sense, and it's self supported. And Suzie Wong had one. In the end she was a good person with actual religious beliefs who cared about a real and empirical future. She married William Holden, giving her baby a Father and left the badlands of Hong Kong’s Wan Chai district. Good old Suzie.
Sports, with the mainstreaming of enviro-extremism, the badlands have come to us, disguised as a return to the Garden of Eden, but without God so it seems. Now why would that be?
Cut and paste these old relevent posts of mine and a great one from Brookes News on how economics and population actually work together. I like Brookes News more and more and of course, the rest of the Mark Steyn piece.
The following is a great little PDF by Aussie Professor Evans, on how the IPCC is an incompetent fraud and why Gore is a bunko artist.
