Las explicaciones rusas de Kyoto

Hace bastante tiempo que el inimitable Séneca me preguntó qué novedades había sobre la postura rusa acerca del infumable protocolo de Kyoto. Por suerte, ninguna: sigue sin querer firmar.

Este mes en el Heartland Institute publican un artículo y fragmentos de la rueda de prensa:

Russian Scientists Reassert Opposition to Kyoto Accord

We have a few minutes left and I would like to tell you about the impressions on the two-day seminar that has just ended.

Nine months ago, at an international climate change conference in Moscow, ten questions concerning the essence of the Kyoto Protocol and its underlying theory were submitted to the [Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, or IPCC].
[...]
Instead of getting replies to our questions, we kept on hearing that replies did not matter; what was important is whether or not Russia trusts Britain, the European Union, and the countries that have ratified the Kyoto Protocol and that have been exerting unprecedented pressure on Russia to ratify it.

Sigue un breve resumen de los hechos que desmienten la ciencia que hay tras el protocolo de Kyoto. Como el artículo es bastante conciso, os ahorro los extractos.

Tal vez la parte más significativa sea la denuncia de las presiones ejercidas sobre las autoridades rusas para firmar el protocolo de las narices:

The British participants insisted on introducing censorship during the holding of this seminar. The chief science advisor to the British government, Mr. King, demanded in the form of an ultimatum at the beginning of yesterday that the program of the seminar be changed, and he presented an ultimatum demanding that about two-third of the participants not be given the floor.
[...]
Mr. King spoke about "undesirable" scientists and undesirable participants in the seminar. He declared that if the old program [were] preserved, he would not take part in the seminar and [would] walk out, taking along with him all the other British participants.
[...]
When the attempt to introduce censorship at the Russian Academy of Sciences failed, other attempts were made to disrupt the seminar. At least four times during the course of the seminar, ugly scenes were staged that prevented the seminar from proceeding normally. As a result, we lost at least four hours of working time in order to try to solve these problems.
[...]
when the more or less normal work of the seminar was restored and when the opportunity for discussion presented itself, when questions on professional topics were asked, and being unable to answer these questions, Mr. King and other members of the delegation turned to flight, as happened this morning when Mr. King, in an unprecedented incident, cut short his answer to a question in mid-sentence, realizing that he was unable to answer it, and left the seminar room.

Pero lo mejor viene cuando quedan al descubierto algunas de las más íntimas motivaciones del protocolo de Kyoto:

That ideological base can be juxtaposed and compared, as Professor Reiter has done just now, with man-hating totalitarian ideology with which we had the bad fortune to deal during the 20th century, such as National Socialism, Marxism, Eugenics, Lysenkovism, and so on. All methods of distorting information existing in the world have been committed to prove the alleged validity of these theories--misinformation, falsification, fabrication, mythology, propaganda. Because what is offered cannot be qualified in any other way than myth, nonsense, and absurdity.
[...]
When we see one of the biggest, if not the biggest, international adventures based on [a] man-hating, totalitarian ideology which, incidentally, manifests itself in totalitarian actions and concrete events, particularly academic discussions, and which tries to defend itself using disinformation and falsified facts, it's hard to think of any other word but "war" to describe this.

Cosas así van destapando la auténtica idología totalitaria que se esconde tras el movimiento rojiverde. La casualidad ha querido que en el mismo número de Environment & Climate News viese el anuncio de Eco-Imperialism, otro libro de denuncia de las patrañas verdes, y como sus presiones políticas condenan al hambre, la enfermedad, la miseria y la muerte a millones de seres humanos. No me resisto a copiar la cita de Patrick Moore (aquí otra biografía), confundador de Greenpeace, que aparece en la portada del site:

“The environmental movement I helped found has lost its objectivity, morality and humanity. The pain and suffering it is inflicting on families in developing countries must no longer be tolerated. Eco-Imperialism is the first book I’ve seen that tells the truth and lays it on the line. It’s a must-read for anyone who cares about people, progress and our planet.”
