Sorry, have not kept up with local discussion.
Have been involved on this topic in emails elsewhere.
Here is my understanding of Copenhagen:
another attempt to usurp our rights and freedoms at the same time as it
takes away national sovereignty.
They are using the end (global warming) as an excuse to pass draconian means
(here is where they put in laws that take away your rights and freedoms and
allow the police to act on behalf of the ones that can afford to pay the
They are greenwashing -- using the green movement to push for the changes
that will give the means towards further structures of world government
without representation. And also, the power to act without recourse,
without need to justify, explain or excuse. In short, legislated
In Canada, it's called bill c-6. Globally, it has been Codex.
And now, globally, a new initiative which cleverly takes the inward looking
greens who only want to be good citizens to build their next overarching
superstructure with which to censor new initiatives and maintain the status
Remember, they don't have to explain why.
Look to the means.
Read the fine print.
And never support laws that would enact a loss of freedoms.
Once again, we are witnessing an incredible piece of post 9/11 legislation
in our post 9/11 world.
What is it with certain scientific theories that they achieve a level of
religion? What is so untouchable about climate change and what is causing
it? Why do we assume that its scientists, unlike the scientists for big
pharma, would be beyond corruption?
Hello? Anyone awake out there?
The time for political bigotry is over. Tis time to judge each issue on its
merits. Regardless of who speaks for or against.
In short, it's time to wake up, and stop being idle followers, and start, to
think for ourselves!
