Imminent Comedy Gold of the Century

The climate change hoax is going through a rough patch.

Its ringleaders are bravely ignoring revelations that the entire global warming/cooling edifice is built upon falsified data, African countries are threatening a walkout at the Copenhagen talks (which would just break my heart), and sentient populaces everywhere are increasingly skeptical about both our role in supposed anthropogenic climate change and our ability to do anything about it.

So the eco-fascists are trying to resume the offensive.

But they might want to rethink their strategy, which, at the moment, consists of lots of dubious government officials hectoring lots of other government and quasi-government officials about the evils of Western attempts to obliterate the environment.

A procession of leader-idiots has been lined up by the UN to address the negotiators at Copenhagen this week. Kicking the party off, and no doubt the perfect man for setting the tone for what will inevitably follow, is the assistant president of Sudan, Nafie Ali Nafie.  Then come speeches by countless others, the highlights of which will no doubt be provided by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Hugo Chavez and Robert Mugabe. Prepare to be wowed by whatever fantabulously moronic concoctions this lot can come up with, the collective intellectual prowess of whom approaches that of a potato.

And, proving that the UN does in fact have a sense of humor, the best has been saved until last: “Prince” Mostapha Zaher (one of TIME’s infinitely mockable Heroes of the Environment 2009), director-general of Afghanistan’s National Environmental Protection Agency, will close out the gabfest.

In a country where the term “government” has no application, it is a tragic testament to politically-correct idiocy that someone insisted upon the creation of a department for the environment.  Could this not have waited until/if a semblance of stability has been achieved?  I would say that those in power in Afghanistan should concentrate on the most basic basics, such as providing clean water, electricity and roads, but I guess that they need a National Environmental Protection Agency to be up and running before any of that, seeing as there are fewer than 50 days left to save the planet.

The speeches run from Wednesday until Friday.

The laughter will last forever.

Strongest reason yet to get the US out of the UN. We have been supporting this den of thieves for decades. It was a good socialist idea in the beginning that grew to the socialist utopia it has become.

UNprecedented fun!

Not if the goal is to fully participate in the UN’s goal of wealth transfer from wealthy to other nations.

Kissmygrits – there are a handful of halfway-decent UN bodies, although they do nothing that the charitable/philanthropic sector does not already do itself (and, it’s pretty safe to say, far more efficiently than can be achieved through the UN). As for the General Assembly, the next conservative president is going to have to come up with some pretty drastic plans – substantive reform of the UN is evidently impossible, so something else needs to be considered.

GnuBreed – thanks, I needed the laugh.

Midas – very astute. What else could be the point in setting up a useless department inside a defunct government at such an early and volatile stage of Afghanistan’s development?

About the only thing more fun would be to watch them all get together and personally design a rectal probe. Sorta.
