Jo Nova: Regulators wet dreams of controlling you

The Planet Under Pressure conference has brought out the clawing powermongers. The Commentator.com team who were brave enough to attend, tell us that no one got very excited about the science, but the word “regulation” was received, well… ecstatically.

The conference was largely focused on how scientists and activists can coalesce to deconstruct the Western way of living and moving to something entirely different, where economic growth and wealth creation is abandoned and replaced, instead, with sustainability targets, trade barriers, regulation and taxation. Indeed there were numerous occasions during the main sessions whereby even the mention of the word ‘regulation’ was met with rapturous applause.

See? The “regulating class” name fits them to a tee.

They have given up on reasoned debate and instead are fomenting a revolution.

According to Lord Anthony Giddens – a preeminent sociologist and speaker at the conference – it means that now is the time for an “activist civil society” to move away from the Western way of life which has proved “too destructive” and toward a radical utopia (read, communes) – all part of what he terms a renewed assault on global warming sceptics.

We can laugh at them, but as Marc Morano points out, they speak from the seat of power (and on taxpayer funds). More of the taxpayers are strongly skeptical than strongly pro-”climate”-action, yet they shamelessly use those funds to promote their own agenda.

And we always knew that “Sustainability” was not a field of science. This prof demonstrates why:

We heard from Sander Van Der Leeuw – Dean and Professor at the School of Sustainability at Arizona State University – that now is the time for scientists to forget objectivity and become citizens once again; for scientists to “better understand decision-making” at the highest level.

How blatant! A call to put politics ahead of science…we’ve been complaining for years that some of the government climate scientists have been doing that, now this professor doesn’t even bother to pretend any more.
