Diplomat Pelosi: A Denier’s Best Friend

by William Yeatman on May 29, 2009

China and the United States account for almost half of global greenhouse gas emissions, which is why Senator John Kerry (D-Massachusetts) this week told the Sydney Morning Herald that ongoing negotiations between the two nations will “define” the upcoming climate conference in Copenhagen (where the 15th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change will meet in December to negotiate a successor global warming treaty to the failed Kyoto Protocol). According to U.S. Representative Edward Markey (D-Massachusetts) the climate talks will be “one of the most complex diplomatic negotiations in the history of the world,” as reported by the New York Times.

If the Congressmen are correct, and climate negotiations with China are delicate diplomacy, then why did House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-California)-long an irritant to the Chinese government for her vocal criticism of the Communist regime’s human rights record-lead a delegation to China to try to find common ground on global warming? Pelosi told 200 students that climate change is “a place where human rights-looking out for the needs of the poor in terms of climate change and healthy environment-are a human right.” I’m not sure what this statement means, but I bet Chinese diplomats cringed.

Thankfully, U.S. Representative James Sensenbrenner (R-Wisconsin) was there to remind reporters that negotiations with China are pointless, because the Chinese leadership already has decided growing prosperity and poverty reduction will not be hindered by expensive-energy climate treaties.

Nice photo of her.

To all of our friends in China – forget Mrs Pelosi.

This woman represents none but herself together with a handful of extremists, most Americans neither want you nor ourselves to have anything to do with "carbon control."

Next time she comes to visit you – just tell her to go home.

Nancy Pelosi = Wesley Mouch. For those of you who don't know, look it up by trying the answer the question, "Who is John Galt?"

I have some questions, hopefully you can answer them?

What is the point of view of this web site?

Who supports this organization?

How should we treat information from this site?

Hi Gina, maybe i can answer some of your questions, maybe not

1. You don't need a PhD of nuclear physics to figure out that AGW is hooey

2. I am anthusiastic supporter, there are undoubtedly numerous others (I don't think Nancy Pelosi would be counted among them, however)

3. With enthusiasm – that people are getting the truth out there!
