Peanut gallery comments on the Cancun Climate Summit
Comments illustrate the diversity of opinions on climate change.
Margot Roosevelt has written a piece for the LA Times about the Cancun Climate Summit. At the end of her piece, several anonymous authors have offered comments. Their comments are revealing but I do not endorse any of them. Comment #2 below is funny.Skip to next paragraph
Mathew is an economics professor at UCLA and has written three books: Green Cities (Brookings Institution Press); Heroes and Cowards (Princeton University Press, jointly with Dora L. Costa); and in fall 2010, Climatopolis: How Our Cities Will Thrive in the Hotter World (Basic Books).

A convention backed by the Western elitest banking system sponsered by their puppet the UN using the global warming threat as a means to broker control over third world countries, they´ll be in Africa next. There is alot of information on the internet available to open up minds to this sham and the basic destruction of western culture to promote these elitests " New World Order" agenda.
I´ve lived in a third world country for almost 15 years and what I see as the biggest factor in the contentful longivity of our species and the planet is the out of control population increase. How are you going to stop an illiterate peasant from cutting down the rainforest, or killing the last rare rhino when he has a shack full of children to feed? Throw a convention in a resort?!!¡¡¿

Me like to drive. Me like cheap gasoline. Me like air conditioning on a hot, summer day. Me like electricity. You get out of way or me drive big SUV right over you and squash your green butt into ground.

This "Global Warming" hoax is the biggest fraud of all times! It has been proven that C02 is not the cause of temperature rising, its the exact opposite. Temperatures rising cause the C02 levels to go up! Temperatures throughout history go up and down which is normal, and if we got rid of every vehicle and C02 emitting source in the world, it would not effect the outcome of temperature changing up or down that is worth killing our economies and giving up our rights to any government. This is nothing more than the corporations that have corrupted our governments to get more of our tax dollars and control of pretty much everything.
Saving the planet is a great idea, but we need to have some logic and look at some real scientific data that is not funded by any corrupt government entity.
This quite possibly could be the worst thing to happen the free world as we know it if this goes through!
