Climate science, as opposed to IPCC climate fraud, is tending to slowly develope more data indicating that the human element is minor. Mars's icecaps, like ours, are melting, and things may get to be as warm as it was a thousand years ago. That is not an excuse to try to con money from Americans.

So, brave editors...

So, brave editors, nothing about Morales's irresponsible and truly homophobic (as opposed to it just being used as a label whenever there is even a slight disagreement) statements linking growth hormones in hens to homosexual orientation in males?

That's what I love about our domestic left, always bending over backwards to gloss over the undemocratic elements of the Latin American left. Just like when Chávez kicked out two Americas Watch workers in September of 2008. The only place I read it was in the leftist Mexican daily La Jornada.

How can we win the war against our enemies against such a lack of honesty with ourselves?

It is very clear all they are trying to do is get money from us and any con is as good as another, just depends on what is in vogue. Since climate change has been seriously challenged as a result of Climategate, they are trying to get it while the gittin' is good but fading fast--real fast.

Evo Morales is factually, ethically and morally correct. The earth cannot withstand the plunder and pollution that is being waged on her. Neither can the human race.

This, however, seems of little importance to the leaders of the G20. They keep promising perpetual growth from what everybody knows is a finite world.

They are prisoners in the Ponzi Scheme of fractional reserve banking. A scheme that needs ever more debt to keep growing the money supply to quench the... ever-growing debt.

All this debt is an ever-increasing mortgage on earth to pillage, plunder and pollute to satisfy the ever-growing debt. Without the ever-increasing destruction of the earth, fractional reserve banking is destroyed, taking down all the economies with it.

We need money produced by sovereign governments, based on credit rather than debt. In this way, we can run sustainable economies. By producing our own money, through the Treasury, we garner both the profit of money creation and the prerogative to reward sustainable endeavor and punish unsustainable consumption.
