Bill McKibben gave a 16-minute speech in front of the most fanatical and brainwashed children of the English-speaking world.
I find it pretty amazing. Power Shift is an annual conference at which thousands of deluded young climate bigots engineer their chaotic plans to overtake the world. And of course, it's not the young people themselves who are the ultimate master minds. The true leaders are much older - and McKibben is one of them.
You may listen to him - his speech is similar to some of the most emotional speeches by Adolf Hitler. The most important activity, people, and place is what those folks are doing over there, now. After having licked their buttocks, he repeats his own pseudoscientific ideas about the need to reduce CO2 to 350 ppm.
The priest decides that science is the easiest part of the story so he doesn't dedicate a single word to it in his talk. (It's interesting: if the science is so easy, why is the combined mass of these thousands of brains incapable to understand even 1% of the basics of climate science?)
McKibben blasts the White House because even Obama's administration failed to stop the U.S. economy. And aside from "pollution" by CO2 that they have in China, America suffers from one form of pollution that is even worse - "pollution" by money. It's easy to fight against this kind of pollution. Why don't all these young people just press a few keys and send the content of their bank accounts to ours? Why don't they make this most obvious contribution to clean the planet?
Most of the public has already understood that the global warming fears have been a fraudulent scheme. For example, protestant pastors have just been measured to be vastly more skeptical than they were two years ago. Only 25% of Britons consider global warming to be the top #1 environmental issue. Mr Joe Public of the U.S. has deferred Warmageddon, too.
However, there are still lots of brainwashed people - and children - who don't seem to be stopping and who are doing their best to enhance the degree of their fanaticism to Islamic proportions and beyond. I am afraid that many of the kids in that hall will have to be shot as dangerous terrorists in a couple of years. It seems to me that they're dreaming about this way to invest their lives. I urge their parents to spank their offspring really properly, in an attempt to save their lives.
Haha, McKibben just told the kids that they were "not the radicals". The true radicals are those who are "fundamentally" changing the composition of the atmosphere. You know, for example, by contributing 0.2 part per billion of the mankind's efforts that increase the concentration of a harmless (and beneficial) traceless gas in the atmosphere by 2 parts per million every year. This is the true radicalism! ;-)
But radicalism is something else. Radicalism has traditionally been linked to names such as Charles Manson. Charles Manson, a serial killer, has just joined Osama bin Laden, Al Gore, James Hansen, Bill McKibben and other people of the same kind and published a hysterical warning about "global warming". Manson seems vastly less fanatical than McKibben but he has already killed many people, much like another verbally moderate member of the AGW movement, bin Laden.

U.S. Supreme Court and CO2
The U.S. Supreme Court seems ready to rule that the federal judges don't have the right to set CO2 emissions limits. Thank God.
