Climate change delegates sign petition to ban water


Climate change delegates sign petition to ban water

December 9, 2010

What would it take to get a petition signed at a conference on global warming?

As students from the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT) found, not much. Believe it or not, the substance that fills the Spokane River and all of the lakes in north Idaho was the subject of a petition presented to attendees at the Cancun Climate Change summit.

And what might that substance be? It is known as the best solvent on earth, and it has been proven to eat through rock and corrode metal.

The CFACT students used the name "Dihydrogen Monoxide", but we all know it as H2O, or water.

What makes this story scary is that delegates at the summit actually signed the petition.

CFACT writes:

It was designed to show that if official U.N. delegates could be duped by college students into banning water, that they could essentially fall for anything, including pseudo-scientific studies which claim to show that global warming is man-caused.

Or that obesity is caused by global warming, or that the industrialized world needs World War 2-style rationing and 20 years of zero economic growth.

But, if one adds a few scary sound bites and a scientific-sounding name, environmental activists will sign on. CFACT adds:

Despite the apparently not-so-obvious reference to H2O, almost every delegate that collegian students approached signed their petition to ban that all too dangerous substance, which contributes to the greenhouse effect, is the major substance in acid rain, and is fatal if inhaled.

Anthony Watts notes that one would think with all the education these delegates have, at least one would realize what they were signing. Sadly, though, that was not the case.

Another petition, entitled "Petition to Set a Global Standard" was designed to cripple the United States for refusinig to adopt the Kyoto Protocol. CFACT wrote:

The petition went so far as to encourage the United Nations to impose tariffs and trade restrictions on the U.S. in a scheme to destabilize the nation's economy. Specifically, the scheme seeks to lower the U.S. GDP by 6% over a ten year period, unless the U.S. signs a U.N. treaty on global warming.

CFACT noted that left wing environmentalists scrambled to sign this petition.

All of which proves that those who would cripple the West under the guise of "environmentalism" and "saving the planet" are little more than educated idiots with a grudge against the United States and the Western world.

Video of the signing can be seen at the CFACT web site, here.
