Ban Ki-Moonbat - "Green is good"

More from the UN chief who thinks we should all return to the Dark Ages in order to "tackle climate change", in this article gleefully printed in the Herald, and co-authored by the Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk and Anders Fogh Rasmussen, Prime Minister of Denmark.

Tusk's inclusion is the most bizarre, as he is vehemently against the whole emissions trading nonsense being proposed in the EU (see here) - maybe he just checked the spelling.
We do not need to await the arrival of new technologies, nor need we worry excessively about the costs of taking action. Studies show that the United States could cut carbon emissions significantly at low or near-zero cost, using existing know-how. For evidence, consider how Denmark has invested heavily in green growth. Since 1980, GDP increased 78 per cent with only minimal increases in energy consumption. For businesses, such savings translate into profits. Today, for example, European companies in the green tech sector enjoy substantial "first mover" advantages, accounting for one-third of the world's burgeoning market in environmental technologies.

With the right policies and financial incentives - within a global framework - we can steer economic growth in a low-carbon direction. With the right policies and the right incentives, we can be sure that developed and developing countries alike contribute to the cause of fighting global warming, each in their own way and without compromising every nation's right to development and the economic well-being of its citizens.

"Low or near zero cost" to cut emissions in the US? "Fighting global warming" (which stopped in 2001)? Who are they kidding?

Read it and weep.
