United (Nations) Deceptions

By Alan Caruba

The British newspaper, The Observer, had an article about the views of Dr. Rajendra Patchauri, the chair of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. “UN says eat less meat to curb global warming” was the headline.

Dr. Patchauri—surprise, surprise—is a vegetarian. He also heads a UN agency whose “science” has been completely discredited, based as it is on computer models that conveniently massage their data to arrive at predetermined conclusions. That same data in the hands of other scientists tends to produce the opposite conclusion.

The IPCC, along with Al Gore, won a Nobel Prize for Peace and, if anyone can tell me what lying about the Earth’s climate has to do with peace, please let me know. When scientists from around the world, some of whom were IPCC contributors, denounce the IPCC, you need to be a tad suspicious.

The UN is one huge propaganda machine. When it was brought into existence just after the end of World War Two the objective was to defuse situations that would lead to military conflicts. It has failed spectacularly in that regard and its so-called peace-keeping efforts have often devolved into scandal.

Its various agencies have colluded to advance the greatest hoax of the twentieth century, “global warming”, and they continue despite the widespread perception that there is no excessive warming and, indeed, the world is now a decade into a perceptible cooling.

The UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has done its bit to advance the global warming hoax by demonizing beef production and consumption, claiming that the emissions of cattle and other livestock contribute to warming.

Attributing “nearly a fifth of global greenhouse gas emissions” to the raising of a favorite food for much of mankind is absurd because (a) there is no global warming, (b) those “emissions” constitute a minor element of the Earth’s atmosphere and (c) they don’t influence climate change in any significant way.

So we have the IPCC and the FAO working together to spread lies about global warming and, in the process, doing their best to harm a global agricultural activity that feeds millions every day.

Apparently the only thing the United Nations is united upon is becoming the world’s Big Brother determining everything about our lives including what we eat.
