Een toekomstige, niet 100 % bewezen “Global Warming” waaraan nog zoveel geleerden twijfelen, en die zelfs een komende koudeperiode voorspellen, wordt misbruikt om in arme landen verbetering van de leefomstandigheden te verhinderen.
Als er één bewijs voor de immoraliteit van naar macht strevende politici gewenst is, lees dan onderstaand verwijt: “Global Warming Efforts Called ‘Immoral’ in Africa
Waarom zijn er ook in Nederland zo weinig nuchter nadenkende mensen die de Haagse politici tot de orde roepen?
Global Warming Efforts Called ‘Immoral’ in Africa
Africans are battling AIDS, malaria, lung infections, intestinal diseases, war, malnutrition and other problems that kill millions each year, “and yet day after day, Africans are told the biggest threat we face is global warming.”
That’s the complaint of leading African social worker Fiona Kobusingye, coordinator of Congress of Racial Equality Uganda and the Kill Malarial Mosquitoes Now Brigade.
In a column for Townhall.com, Kobusingye writes that predictions of global warming disasters are being used “to justify telling Africans that we shouldn’t build coal or natural gas electrical power plants. It’s the almost total absence of electricity [that is] keeping us from creating jobs and becoming modern societies . . . These policies kill.
“The average African lifespan is lower than it was in the United States and Europe 100 years ago. But Africans are being told we shouldn’t develop, or have electricity or cars because, now that those countries are rich beyond anything Africans can imagine, they’re worried about global warming.
“Al Gore and [United Nations] climate boss Yvo de Boer tell us the world needs to go on an energy diet. Well, I have news for them. Africans are already on an energy diet. We’re starving!
“Al Gore uses more electricity in a week than 28 million Ugandans together use in a year. And those anti-electricity policies are keeping us impoverished.”
Not having electricity “means disease and death” in Africa, Kobusingye said. “It means millions die from lung infections, because they have to cook and heat with open fires; from intestinal diseases caused by spoiled food and unsafe drinking water; from malaria, TB, cholera, measles and other diseases that we could prevent or treat if we had proper medical facilities.
“Hypothetical global warming a hundred years from now is worse than this?
“Telling Africans they can’t have electricity and economic development — except what can be produced with some wind turbines or little solar panels — is immoral. It is a crime against humanity.”
Kobusingye concludes: “Uganda and Africa need to stop worrying about what the West, the U.N. and Al Gore say. We need to focus on our own needs, resources, and opportunities.”
