Global Warmers Meet in Poland

Dec. 3, 2018 (EIRNS)—There is plenty of room at the two-week COP24 conference in Katowice, Poland over Dec. 2-14, the big follow-up event to the Paris COP21 in 2015; global warmers from all parts of the world will convene to map out new, costly, and nonsensical projects to “protect the climate.”

The World Bank has already announced that it is arranging a special new credit line to developing countries in the range of $200 billion by 2025. Only half of that is a direct commitment by the bank; about $30 billion will be given by other international institutions, the rest by “climate-conscious” private sector companies. Hysterical experts predict 133 million “climate refugees” globally by 2030.

The climate hysteria has also deeply infected German Development Minister Gerd Müller, who said on his departure to Katowice that the world climate had to be protected in the developing sector, and particularly so in Africa, with huge investments into renewable energies. If every African household were connected to a fossil-based electricity supply, no less than 1,000 new coal power plants would have to be built, he said. Typical of a contemporary leading German politician, Müller omitted the option of nuclear power, and did not even mention thermonuclear fusion power.

The $200 billion now earmarked by the World Bank for wasteful projects in “renewables,” would more than suffice to build the number of nuclear power plants needed to supply all Africans with safe, calculable and affordable electricity. The question is really how much longer can humanity can afford the global warmers?
