Climate Gate – All the manipulations and lies revealed 217

I have written extensible about the UN pack, this traveling circus that fly around the globe in first class, or private jet, stay in hotel rooms at £400-500 per night in spa resorts, and gets wined and dined at expensive restaurants.

All of this of course paid by us, the normal people.

While they at the same time preach austerity, frugality and sacrifice from us, the taxpayers.

This blatant hypocrisy is so mind numbing that it would be laughable if it weren’t for the fact that these people have the power to force us to obey them.

They are a truly parasitic class in the sense that Karl Marx wrote about it.

How ironic that today most of this class is leftists and so called “liberals”.

The latest example of that was the enormous costs and hypocrisy of Copenhagen. They arrived in their chauffeur driven limousines, and their special “eco friendly” busses were of course empty. Their housing warmed by oil heaters and the energy used by the conference was from coal fired power stations.  And seventy percent of the summit’s greenhouse gas emissions came from activities inside the conference center,

This is the US Congress version of the UN pack. But the blatant hypocrisy is still the same!

“Nobody we asked would defend the super-sized Congressional presence on camera. One Democrat said it showed the world the U.S. is serious about climate change.

And all those attendees who went to the summit rather than hooking up by teleconference? They produced enough climate-stunting carbon dioxide to fill 10,000 Olympic swimming pools.

Which means even if Congress didn’t get a global agreement – they left an indelible footprint all the same.”

Copenhagen Summit Turned Junket?

Exclusive: At Least 20 Members of Congress Made the Trip to Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen Last Month

By Sharyl Attkisson

 CBS)  Few would argue with the U.S. having a presence at the Copenhagen Climate Summit. But wait until you hear what we found about how many in Congress got all-expense paid trips to Denmark on your dime.

CBS investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson reports that cameras spotted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi at the summit. She called the shots on who got to go. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, and embattled Chairman of the Tax Committee Charles Rangel were also there.

They were joined by 17 colleagues: Democrats: Waxman, Miller, Markey, Gordon, Levin, Blumenauer, DeGette, Inslee, Ryan, Butterfield, Cleaver, Giffords, and Republicans: Barton, Upton, Moore Capito, Sullivan, Blackburn and Sensenbrenner.

That’s not the half of it. But finding out more was a bit like trying to get the keys to Ft. Knox. Many referred us to Speaker Pelosi who wouldn’t agree to an interview. Her office said it ”will comply with disclosure requirements” but wouldn’t give us cost estimates or even tell us where they all stayed.

Senator Inhofe (R-OK) is one of the few who provided us any detail. He attended the summit on his own for just a few hours, to give an ”opposing view.”

”They’re going because it’s the biggest party of the year,” Sen. Inhofe said. ”The worst thing that happened there is they ran out of caviar.”

Our investigation found that the congressional delegation was so large, it needed three military jets: two 737’s and a Gulfstream Five — up to 64 passengers — traveling in luxurious comfort.

Add senators and staff, most of whom flew commercial, and we counted at least 101 Congress-related attendees. All for a summit that failed to deliver a global climate deal.

As a perk, some took spouses, since they could snag an open seat on a military jet or share a room at no extra cost to taxpayers. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) was there with her husband. Rep. Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) was also there with her husband. Rep. Ed Markey (D-MA) took his wife, as did Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-WI). Congressman Barton — a climate change skeptic — even brought along his daughter. 

Until required filings are made in the coming weeks, we can only figure bits and pieces of the cost to you.

  • ·  Three military jets at $9,900 per hour – $168,000 just in flight time.
  • ·  Dozens flew commercial at up to $2,000 each.
  • ·  321 hotel nights booked – the bulk at Copenhagen‘s five-star Marriott.
  • ·  Meals add tens of thousands more.

    Steve Ellis of Taxpayers for Common Sense, wasn’t against a U.S. presence. But he said, ”Every penny counts. Congress should be shaking the couch cushions looking for change, rather than spending cash for everybody to go to Copenhagen.”

    Nobody we asked would defend the super-sized Congressional presence on camera. One Democrat said it showed the world the U.S. is serious about climate change.

    And all those attendees who went to the summit rather than hooking up by teleconference? They produced enough climate-stunting carbon dioxide to fill 10,000 Olympic swimming pools.

    Which means even if Congress didn’t get a global agreement – they left an indelible footprint all the same.

  1. Malcolm Says:

    It is a sick world where actions such as Kyoto and Copenhagen can continue spending billions and nobody can be called to account .

    • sophiaalbertina Says:

      Malcolm,

      I agree. And the worst thing – most of it is financed by our taxes and high energy prices. And the high energy prices in Europe are due to high taxes, carbon credits etc.

      All thanks to “our” dear politicians.
