"On the first day of Copenhagen,
the GreenFrauds gave to me . . . "

If I can stand it, I will provide a day-by-day thumbnail sketch of some of the happenings at the Copenhagen Climate Conference,
December 6-18.

From HotAir: As expected, the chair of the IPCC led off with a dismissal of the Climategate scandal. Rajendra Kumar Pachauri sniffed at the entire controversy as merely a “theft,” echoing Barbara Boxer and apparently signaling the approach to be taken by everyone at the conference. In doing so, Pachauri defended the University of East Anglia CRU and the IPCC itself on the basis of peer review — which the e-mails exposed in Climategate show UEA-CRU actively attempting to undermine. The same people Pachauri hails as part of the scientific, peer-reviewed effort conspired to pervert peer review itself.

Pachauri is the same guy who told the BBC radio last week that there would be a full investigation of the revelations contained in e-mails and documents leaked from the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit. And the findings are already in (wow, these guys must be really good): the IPCC's Working Group gave a statement on Friday saying it “condemns the illegal act which led to private emails being posted on the Internet and firmly stands by the findings of the AR4 and by the community of researchers worldwide whose professional standards and careful scientific work over many years have provided the basis for these conclusions.”

Here is something from The Daily Beast. "A Skeptic's Guide to Copenhagen," an A to Z guide to the proceedings. Here's a sample:

D is for deniers. A mere notch above Holocaust deniers, these are the people who refuse to accept that climate change is largely man-induced. Heretics, they'd be burned at the stake if that were not such a bad thing for the ozone layer.

Here's what Copenhagen looked like as the conference was getting underway.

And on a related note, and the timing of this is surely not coincidental:

The Environmental Protection Agency has declared carbon dioxide a danger to human health. Are these people nuts? Lisa Jackson is the EPA administrator. The EPA said that the scientific evidence surrounding climate change clearly shows that greenhouse gases "threaten the public health and welfare of the American people" and that the pollutants — mainly carbon dioxide from burning fossil fuels — should be regulated under the Clean Air Act.

"These long-overdue findings cement 2009's place in history as the year when the United States government began addressing the challenge of greenhouse-gas pollution," said EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson at news conference. The action by the EPA, which has been anticipated for months, clearly was timed to add to the momentum toward some sort of agreement on climate change at the Copenhagen conference and try to push Congress to approve climate legislation.

"The implications of today's action by EPA are far-reaching...individual Americans and consumers and businesses alike will be dramatically affected by this decision," said Charles T. Drevna, the president of the National Petrochemical & Refiners Association. Drevna, in a statement, said "it is hardly the time to risk the remainder of the U.S. industrial sector in an attempt to achieve a short-term international public relations victory."

And who is the "lead author" of the bill in the Senate? Why, it's John Fucking Kerry, thank you very much. Will this freak just never go away? My friends at HotAir say that the EPA will use this new authority to kill off coal mining. It will also impact agriculture, especially dairies and cattle ranching, as well as transportation. The entire manufacturing sector will have to answer for its output.

It can't really any longer be a mystery to anyone that the Leftists and ObamaTeam clearly want to take down this country. We may eventually be looking at 40% unemployment.

Jesus, I think that's about enough for Day One.

Update. Newsflash: Copenhagen Warmist Freaks Are Hypocrits--Who Knew?

They landed in 140 private jets.

They took 1,200 limos to their luxury hotels.
