"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Kneel!

We (my reader and I) think Cancun is a freebie extravaganza for loonies and we know that AGW is beloved of the Gaia worshippers but opening the proceedings with an invocation to  a pagan goddess?

Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change, invoked the ancient jaguar goddess Ixchel in her opening statement to delegates gathered in Cancun, Mexico, noting that Ixchel was not only goddess of the moon, but also "the goddess of reason, creativity and weaving. May she inspire you -- because today, you are gathered in Cancun to weave together the elements of a solid response to climate change, using both reason and creativity as your tools."

She called for "a balanced outcome" which would marry financial and emissions commitments from industrialized countries aimed at combating climate change with "the understanding of fairness that will guide long-term mitigation efforts."

"Excellencies, the goddess Ixchel would probably tell you that a tapestry is the result of the skilful interlacing of many threads.  I am convinced that 20 years from now, we will admire the policy tapestry that you have woven together and think back fondly to Cancun and the inspiration of Ixchel."

None of the delegates seems to have turned a hair - each to his own and all that - but it gives a brief insight into the states of mind of these rabid climate warmists who are determined to change the societal structure of the world on spurious grounds.  I find it very worrying that they're 'world leaders'.

Who remembers this British court ruling from last year? "A belief in man-made climate change ... is capable, if genuinely held, of being a philosophical belief for the purpose of the 2003 Religion and Belief Regulations"  And let's not forget that there was some debate about including references to the Christian God in the preface to the Lisbon Treaty - eventually omitted.

People can believe what they want so long as they don't shove it down my throat and that's what these jumped up, wannabe despots in Cancun are doing.   It concerns me that a UN delegate, in a position of great influence and importance, should call upon a Mayan goddess to guide the hearts and minds of the participants.

Hello, Cameron? For God's sake (pemf) use the sense you were born with and re-visit the Climate Change Act.

  1. Christiana Figueres clearly has no knowledge of the reality of Maya religion, a viewing of Mel Gibsons Apocalypso might open her eyes.
    Let's hope that the next IPPC beanfeast is not held in Syria where some ecoloon might invoke old Elagabal and all that virginity to be sacrificed on the altar of the meteorite god Bal; boys, girls, they weren't fussed..

  2. f it's Elagabal that lets me off the hook, Banned. She was probably trying to be 'inclusive' to Mexico but I don't think she's furthered the UN's cause for AGW through this. Next thing you know, it will be goats. In the ME they're still not fussed - girls = marriage, boys = pleasure.
