I remembered this little gem from a few years ago. November 14, 2010 interview of Ottmar Edenhofer.
For those who may not know, Ottmar Edenhofer is the co-chair of the IPCC Working Group III.
Yes, he is also a TOTAL LOOTER and it's NOT about SCIENCE.

Summary of Article.....
===============
"Climate policy has almost nothing to do anymore with environmental protection, says the German economist and IPCC official Ottmar Edenhofer. The next world climate summit in Cancun is actually an economy summit during which the distribution of the world’s resources will be negotiated."
===============

From the horse's mouth...

    Hello WBD,
    Agenda driven "science" is not science. I enjoyed the recent revelations by one of the founders of Greenpeace. He is no longer a believer.
    Respectfully,
    O.A.

      Yes, Patrick Moore.
      He believes in objective environmentalism. He views the lumber industry as a sustainable renewable resource for example. He also believes that nuclear power is our best energy source for the future and that oil and gas are going to be needed for the foreseeable future. A very sensible man.

    "This has almost nothing to do with environmental policy anymore, with problems such as deforestation or the ozone hole."
    Not almost nothing to do with the ozone hole, nothing to do with it. I've never heard any evidence of climate change being related to the ozone hole. The ozone hole was caused by chemicals that have been mostly eliminated, and the problem is going away.

      I think he's referring to environmental policy in general. Not just CO2 emissions. He's admitting that generally, environmental policy now is about global socialism.

    I found his comments interesting and provocative right up to, but not including the last two questions, when he made a dramatic Left Turn.

    I agree: I believe virtually of the IPCC crap IS about redistribution of wealth from the Makers to the Looters. Sponsored and encouraged by the Looters.

    No more complex than the parable of Robbing Peter to pay Paul... where Paul rarely seems to offer objections, no matter what Peter feels.
