Thoughts on ignoring the science on climate change, at the UN and the EPA, including specific directives to ignore the fact that global temperatures are on an eight year downtrend, directly contradicting all the doom and gloom forecasts.

Then you have the UN IPCC chairman's thoughts:

Hotel guests should have their electricity monitored; hefty aviation taxes should be introduced to deter people from flying; and iced water in restaurants should be curtailed, the world’s leading climate scientist has told the Observer.

Rajendra Pachauri, the chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), warned that western society must undergo a radical value shift if the worst effects of climate change were to be avoided. A new value system of “sustainable consumption” was now urgently required, he said.

Lots of sacrifice, etc., until you find that he has flown over 440,000 miles in the last year and a half, with a significant portion for pleasure trips, including one weekend jaunt from New York to India to catch a practice cricket match. Do what I say, not what I do. Blech. More here.
