The Pickering Post --

Want to be a “climate scientist”? Well you can be within a week. Simply write a paper on the weather or whatever, have it peer-reviewed, then publish it in some dodgy Green journal and voila! You’re a “scientist!”. Now you can start reporting your conclusions to the UN’s IPCC about how we are all about to die of sun stroke while drowning in high tides at the same time. They are looking forward to hearing from you.

Of course, if you want to be an oceanographer or a meteorologist, it may take a few years longer and the IPCC will not want to hear from you at all.

Mike , could you cite your sources for this hogwash? They were all on board for the IPCC plan , then the high cost of doing so became apparent. Then they discovered that the danger carbon emissions was overblown. Do you just sit in your office and make this stuff up. Try being a journalist and give your readers some facts. Anyone who lies like a rug shouldn't be throwing stones at the President.

Germany is a perfect place to hold the conference. Maybe the delegates can take some field trips and learn a few things, some of which knowledge, hopefully, will be brought back to the USA. For instance, Audi/VW has a plant up and running that captures industrial exhaust CO2 and, using wind-generated electricity, converts that CO2 into substitute natural gas Methane. Bayer Corporation has a plant up and running that reclaims Coal-fired power plant exhaust CO2 and uses it, in place of petroleum-based raw materials, in the synthesis of certain high-performance, high-volume plastics and polymers, in which plastics the CO2 thus consumed will remain forever chemically, and productively and profitably, "sequestered". They're also blending fuel alcohol Methanol into gasoline in Germany, Methanol imported from Iceland, where they're making it, too, out of Carbon Dioxide. We're just not being fully informed.
