Hold or cold, Clive Hamilton is smarter than democracy

By subverting science in violation of the the public trust, and perpetrating a massive fraud on the world, IPCC and warmists have long subverted the democratic process.
Nevertheless, it has always been predictible that further, more extreme sanctions against freedom, capitalism, and democracy should be applied by warmists.
Gore has long advocated lying and exaggeration on the part of warmists; James Hansen and others have urged violence and civil disobedience.
The next step for warmists? In the absence of any warming at all, they advocate the suspension of democracy itself, to stop global warming.
There is no lie bizarre enough to discourage warmists from using it; their end of controlling Earth justifies any means, which chant has a familiar ring to it.
Carbon dioxide in atmosphere continues to increase; but there is no warming. With every day of diminished solar activity and lengthening of cycle 23, it becomes more likely that Earth is going to get really cold. The same fools, ignorant of history, will use that as an excuse to take control of Earth, too. They need and demand control; everybody else should be equal and without power, except for them. No more self-government for the masses. Every crises is an excuse to do foolish things, as Obama has emphasized.
H/T: The Astute Bloggers Australian Professor/Politician Calls For “Suspension of Democratic Processes” As Solution To “Deniers”

[...]Hypocrite of the month
Professor Clive Hamilton, now the Greens’ candidate for the Victorian seat vacated by former Treasurer Peter Costello, wins for blind persistence. Observe.
Hamilton complains: “The Right has jettisoned science in favour of deeper beliefs.”
But this same Hamilton preaches: “So I think where we’re going is to begin to see a Gaian earth in its ecological, cybernetic way, infused with some notion of
mind or soul or chi, which will transform our attitudes to it away from an instrumentalist one, towards an attitude of greater reverence.”
Again. Hamilton complains: “Climate change is the most important arena for the long-running culture war of the neo-conservatives. In pursuit of their goals they have tapped into primitive fears.”
But this same Hamilton preaches: “I cannot see any alternative to ramping up the fear factor.”
This week he showed what he meant, claiming if “climate deniers” won, then “hundreds of millions of mostly impoverished people … would die”.
This made these “deniers” – he named me – not just “more dangerous” than Holocaust deniers, but over time “more iniquitous” and “morally worse”.
If fact, he threatens a “suspension of democratic processes” to deal with such opposition. So give that man the prize … while we’re still allowed.
Carpetbagger of the month The United Nations wins by billions.
It’s asking Australia to sign a treaty in Copenhagen next month that in its draft commits all rich countries to pay 0.7 per cent of their GDP each year – which for Australia means handing over $7 billion a year as our “carbon debt”.
This is cash that the UN, infamous for its oil-for-food corruption scandal, will pass on to countries such as China, minus handling fees, to help them cope with global warming. Or something.
What makes this demand so brazen is that the UN has repeatedly asked for this same 0.7 per cent of our wealth – but each time with a different excuse.
In 1970, the UN called on rich countries such as Australia to give
0.7 per cent of their wealth to the Third World – minus those handling fees- to ensure “human dignity”.
In 2002, it called on rich countries such as Australia to hand over that
0.7 per cent for “development” and to “protect and restore the health and integrity of the Earth’s ecosystem”.
In 2004, the UN called on us to pay that 0.7 per cent to ensure “collective security” and a “more secure world”.
In 2005, the UN told us to hand over that 0.7 per cent to ensure “millennium development goals” and fight poverty.
No go again. So the UN is going for broke at Copenhagen, demanding once more that 0.7 per cent from us, but this time to prevent “serious adverse effects of climate change”. To save the world.
And this time your Prime Minister says we’ll pay a “fair share”. It worked!
Naturally, material demands of the “warmists,” (er, Marxists), ultimately is at the root.

The Astute Blogger – Pastorious, remarks:
The AGW movement, and the Green Movement out of which it came, are Trojan Horses which are being used to introduce Socialist ideas into Western political systems.
This AGW movement has little to do with science, and a lot to do with Communism and Totalitarianism. And, people like Clive Hamilton are evidence of that.
Naturally, Clive Hamilton’s work prominently criticizes capitalism and consumerism. Hamilton is the unethical Professor of Public Ethics at Centre for Applied Philosophy and Public Ethics (CAPPE)
